In this article, you’ll learn how to draw Guts to understand what makes this character tick and how he fights and looks. So let’s get started with the Guts Drawing.
How to draw Guts is one of the most difficult drawings globally, especially if you want to draw something that represents BERSERK!
Like Guts from the famous manga series Berserk.
The reason is that BERSERK is a deep, dark and violent realm where nothing is ever as it seems. Only the brave and the strong survive in this world of demons and monsters.
How to Draw Guts Berserk Step By Step
Draw Guts’ Pose
To draw Guts standing, draw an oval to represent his head.
Then draw a line running through the oval for the neck and shoulders.
His body is drawn as a rectangle.
Draw a vertical line to represent his forearm coming from the shoulders, then draw a thick circle representing the elbow of the arm and lines running across from this circle to represent his wrist on his armour.
A short vertical line is drawn below the rectangle forming the body to represent his waist.
Then draw an oval joining this short vertical line, which should represent his groin.
Draw the Head
Start by outlining his jaw, chin, and the top of his head.
Then draw the nose and the eyes. Just resent them with lines at this stage.
Draw Guts’ Berserker Armour
To draw the arms of Guts Berserk armour, draw one of the arms with 2 lines running over the outline representing his arm and hand.
Draw the shoulder of the armour
Draw a slightly bent line that looks like it is joining the left jaw to the left angle of his shoulder, and do the same for the right side.
The arm of his armour on the right side is drawn from the shoulder of the armour as a slightly curved line that runs through to the elbow.
Start drawing his thigh
By drawing lines from the two lower angles of the rectangle representing his body which follows closely beside the oval representing his waist and runs down to form his right and left thigh.
To separate the thigh, draw a line running from the centre of the lower section of the oval running down to the left to form the left thigh then from the upper one-third of that line, draw a vertical line running to the right to draw the right thigh.
Draw the Dragon Slayer Sword
This process is simple, draw a rectangle representing the weapon with an extra line on the slash section and an extra line representing its hilt (the handle) on the right side of his shoulder.
Also, outline the blade which appears on the left side behind him.
Start To Draw His Dagger
Draw the dagger-like a rectangle with a pointed edge on the right side of his body, running from the lower part of the rectangle representing his body to the lower part of the oval representing his waist.
This is used as a guideline for the length of the dagger.
Draw the dagger’s hilt with two thin lines running from the bottom to the top of the blade, then close the two ends to make it look like a rectangle.
Guts Mouth Drawing
To draw Guts’ mouth, draw a long curved line from the top and two long curved lines that go down to meet it at right angles, forming an oval.
To lower and deepen this shape, add some more curves.
Guts Neck Drawing
Draw the lower section of his neck with two vertical lines from the middle part of his shoulder that run to the lower part of his head.
Then draw a horizontal line below it.
Draw Guts’ Throwing Knives on His Armour
Draw the four knives on his suit with a rectangle and an oval.
The hilts of the first and list knife are covered.
Draw Guts’ Thigh of His Suit
Draw a line across his left thigh to form the bottom of his groin, then add two lines from the lower part of the line forming his crotch and meeting at a vertical line.
This will represent his thigh.
From the oval representing his groin, then draw three horizontal lines running from its bottom to meet at a horizontal line starting at its centre and extending outwards.
Draw Guts’ Chest Plate
Draw a rectangle shape with an extra point on it.
Then draw a sphere-like shape with a single horizontal line representing its centre.
Draw two vertical lines coming out of the top and bottom points of the rectangle to form his chest plate, then add two spheres representing buckles on each side of his chest plate.
The chest plate of his armour is fairly simple to draw; make sure that you keep it symmetrical.
To draw this part of the armour, draw a small vertical line at the bottom and add two small lines coming inwards from it on both sides.
Then continue making marks down his centre and extending outwards up both sides.
Draw the spikes on his armour (optional)
Draw three sharp spikes coming out from each part that makes up the lower part of his chest plate to form the topmost part of this armour.
Draw two lines where there should be spikes on the left side of his chest, and again draw two more lines where they should be on the right side.
To draw them:
- Start by drawing a short vertical line a short distance from his neck.
- Draw a short horizontal line towards it.
- Draw a bent line joining it to the vertical line.
- Repeat this on his right side.
Guts Facial Features Drawing
Draw his left ear, nose and mouth
Draw a curved line on the left side of his ear.
Draw a very short vertical line to represent the nose.
Make sure the nose falls on the vertical line separating the head into left and right.
Draw a horizontal line below the initial horizontal line drawn as part of the mouth.
Guts Hair Drawing
Draw Guts’ spiky shaped hair with a circle for the base of its puffy ends.
To separate this from the rest of his head, draw a vertical line running down from the top of his head to form a line that separates his hair from his face.

Draw his eyes, nose & mouth
To draw the mouth, draw a curved line joining his two lips.
Then draw an oval representing his nose and two small circles representing his eyes.

Draw another line at the bottom of his neck going down from it.
Then add two more lines extending down from both sides of it.
Now add two lines and a square at each side of his mouth, then add a few more lines behind that.
Add Details To His Sword
Draw his sword blade with a curved line at the top and bottom parts.

Draw His Shoulder Pads
Add two spikes to each shoulder pad.
Start by creating a short vertical line at the centre of his shoulder, then draw another short vertical line near it, forming one side of the spike on each pad, and then adding two lines going outwards to form its point.
Repeat this for its other side, keeping in mind to keep them symmetrical in all their features except for the length.
Add Details to His Armour
Draw his right shoulder pad with the same basic structure as the other; make it symmetrical to the other.

The buckle of the straps is just an oval, and the straps themselves are just two straight lines from the buckle to the base part, then repeat that on the other side of his belt.
Guts Gloves Drawing
The gloves are a fairly simple structure but will still require some attention to draw them correctly for his design.
First, you need to draw a short vertical line at each end of the rectangle for them to connect with it.
Then draw a series of straight lines running from the centre of the line going outwards, stopping at the top and bottom parts.
On each glove, draw two lines starting at each side that go upwards and end at the upper part of his elbow pad.
Draw another line going downwards from that point to its lower part.
Then to add some detail to each glove, draw a small rectangle on its lower part.
