Start by copying the basic geometry and construction lines from the reference image below. Also note the invisible line of symmetry that is running vertically through the center of the image.
Start this step by adding the first layer of hair to Goku’s head, which comprises of three hanging spikes and ten upward spikes. The upward spikes roughly follow the image’s natural line of symmetry noted earlier.
Add the trapezium to the upper cross of construction lines to form Goku’s body and box out the other construction lines to form the arms and legs. Next, draw a small circle at the end of each forearm to indicate his fists and add small trapeziums to the bottom of the legs for his feet. Add small arcs for ears to the side of the head and two lines down from the head to the upper trapezium to denote his neck. Finally, add a medium sized, pointed U-shape arc inside the upper trapezium.
Return to Goku’s hair and add the second layer, comprising of five spikes that decrease in size from the center to the edges and are positioned between each of the previously drawn primary layer spikes. Continue your drawing by defining the curvature of Goku’s skin and clothes using the reference image below. Again, using the image below to guide you, shape the lower trapeziums into his boots and shape the small circles into his fists. Finally, apply adjacent construction lines to the head and define the belt and undershirt on his shoulders and chest.
Start this step by adding the facial features to the head, using your construction lines as a guide. Following this, detail the fists and boots as per the image below. Finish your drawing by sculpting the muscles and layers of the clothing using lines and curves. Extra detail can also be added to the hair using simple lines, as seen below.
