how to draw Champoo from Ranma 1/2. Shampoo (シャンプー) is a Chinese Amazon from Joketsuzoku. She is one of the main three fiancées of Ranma Saotome and a rival of both Akane Tendo and Ukyo Kuonji. The Chinese character in her name are shān “coral” and pú “uncut/unpolished gem”. Shampoo has waist-length dark hair (purple in the anime) with a fringe and two strands hanging in front that are secured with ties. She dresses in various forms of Chinese clothing, usually a matching blouse and pants, over which she may wear an apron while working. Her combat outfit consists of a light colored long-sleeved blouse and pants with the addition of a dark breastplate and a pair of metal arm-guards, making her one of the few characters to wear any form of armor. For formal occasions she favors sleeveless cheongsam.
In this tutorial you will learn to draw a Manga character Shampoo. I usually start drawing with simple geometry shapes to construct the basic Manga head and body. By following this process, you will find drawing is lot easier. It is very important to get the shape and proportion right in the beginning. If you understand its basic foundation, it will be easier to draw anything. If you want to be good at drawing, you will have to practice at least couple hours a day.
She came to Japan to kill the female Ranma after he defeated her in an annual martial arts contest since he and Genma had hungrily devoured the prize, a well-stocked banquet table, while coming upon and watching the contest. Shampoo gave Ranma the “Kiss of Death”, a promise to track her down and eventually kill her. Later, after male Ranma accidentally defeated her, she gave him the “Kiss of Marriage”, since the laws of her village force her to kill any female defeaters and marry male ones. Once she learned of his curse, she returned home, heartbroken.
As punishment for her failure to kill female Ranma or marry male Ranma, her great-grandmother Cologne brought her to Jusenkyo for retraining. During this training, she fell into the “Spring of Drowned Cat,” making her cursed to turn into a cat, the one thing Ranma fears most, and she blames him for this status. Despite this, Shampoo is no longer fixated on wanting to kill Ranma, and now just wants to marry him.
Below are step by step how to draw Shampoo from Ranma 1/2. Step one, I started with basic circular shape with taper bottom. Step two, I laid down two horizontal lines and a vertical line to measure her facial feature. Step three, I drew her eyes, nose and mouth over the previous measuring grids. Step four, I added some hair style, eyelashes and eyebrows. Step five, I added more detail to her hair, then sketched her hands, shoulder and arm very roughly. Step six, I finished her hands, her bows, and the rest of the drawing.
