Todoroki Shoto is from the Japanese anime My Hero Academia (Boku No Hero Academia).

His name is Shoto but in Japanese you typically pronounce the family name first (Todoroki) unless you are good friends with the person.

Todoroki Shoto is an interesting character and has a really cool power. Half of his body is ice based and the other is fire. He can mix both to create some really neat and fun effects in the show.

Today, we’ve decided to try and draw him in a chibi/kawaii form. These styles tend to have a bit less detail so they are usually easier for kids & beginners.

We’ve managed to get the steps down to 20 in total. The hardest part is most likely the hair as he has a lot of little pieces to draw. If you can get through that, the rest should be fairly straight forward.

Todoroki Famous Quotes
"Never Forget Who You Want To Become."
"I'll Win With My Mom's Power Alone."
"I Want... To Be A Hero, Too...!"

Art Supplies

Here’s a list of supplies we recommend to use, however, feel free to use whatever you can find around the house!

  • Pencil, Marker, Sharpie, Pen (Anything you can draw with!)
  • Paper (We love marker paper but use anything you can find).
  • Colored Markers (if you want to color the drawing).
    Here are what we think are the best colored pencils, best gel pens and best markers for coloring.
  • Your imagination (feel free to change colors or add things to the drawing!).

A Few Tips Before You Start Drawing

  • The hair can be really tricky. He has a lot of smaller spiky parts to his hair. If you are having trouble, just focus more on giving him a lot of spikes vs less.
