Step 4:
Add extra shading under his eyes and mouth. Draw in his clothing and turban/hat thing (I'm not sure what its called...^_^). Try to make the fabric look like it overlaps and folds so that it doesn't look like its just plastered onto his head.

Step 5:
Here is the final picture, colored in Adobe Photoshop. You may wish to use different mediums, though; I know that a lot of people prefer traditional mediums. Whichever medium you choose, make sure you properly shade your picture.

3/4 View Step 1:
Next I'm going to go over how to draw Piccolo's face from a 3/4 angle, and without the turban/hat. ^_^ There are less steps for this one, because I personally think its easier than the front view. Start off with a large circle (the head is not so egg shaped without the turban/hat), and draw in the guidelines as shown. Note that there are less guidelines than in the first drawing; I just omitted the very top line because it is unnecesary. Make sure the top horizontal line (drawn in red) is angled slightly, since that is going to be the guideline for the eyes. Go ahead and draw the ears, as well.

Step 2:
Draw in the eyes, eyebrows, nose and mouth. This time, draw the outline of the nose, not just the shadow. The eyebrows should be thick enough that the right one overlaps the left. The pupils are very small and lack any sort of light glares. The mouth is directly below the nose. Make sure that all the features are lined up along the central guideline that runs from the top of the head to the chin. Fill in the detail on the ears, as well.

Step 3:
Next, gently erase the guidelines. Draw the antennae, making them relatively low on the head and distanced wide apart. Add the wrinkles under the eyes and mouth. Draw the upper half portion of his body; as with in the previous picture, the neck starts immediatly below the ears. Clean up your finished sketch as much as you can, and you're almost done. ^_^

Step 4:
Here is the finished version, colored in Adobe Photoshop. You can make several variations on these two poses, depending upon what type of expression you would like. Try different eye and mouth sizes to express different emotions.

Trunks from "DBZ"
Front View Step 1:

From what I have seen, most Dragonball Z characters can be drawn using these basic shapes and proportions. Dragonball Z characters all have similarly constructed faces: they have large foreheads, slanted, triangular eyes, and small lower faces. Once you see how the basic face is proportioned, you should be able to draw whichever character you like. Begin by drawing a large, slightly elongated circle for the forehead. Draw the lower half of the face and divide it up with lightly drawn guidlines as shown. Notice that the lower half of his face can be divided up into equal sections; the main horizontal guidelines are equidistant from each other. Draw the slanted guidelines for the eyes, and sketch the position of the mouth (which should be directly below the guideline for the nose).

Step 2:
Erase some of the unnecessary guidelines. Draw the outline of the eyes, (which should be thin and triangular), as well as the outline of the ears and neck.

Step 3:
Sketch the outline of his hair. The hair should be very large and rounded, more so if his head is tilted forward. Add more detail to his eyes. When drawing his eyebrows, make sure they rest directly above his eyes. Draw the nose and mouth next, making them very small and close together.

Step 4:
Next, erase all the guidelines. Add the detail to his hair; with Dragonball Z characters, the more detail, the better, so don't be stingy. Make the lines on his hair as smooth and rounded as you can; make them follow the flow of the hair, rather than drawing them straight down. Draw the shading lines under his eyes and mouth, and add detail to his ears. Draw his clothing, his sword, and the muscles around the neck. Erase any unwanted lines and clean up your sketch.

Step 5:
Take your final sketch and color or shade it however you like. Personally, I like using Adobe Photoshop, but you can color with pencils, colored pencils, or anything else you want.

3/4 View Step 1:
Next, we'll draw the 3/4 view. You can probably use these proportions for other DBZ characters, too. Draw a large circle, then add the lower half of the face and divide the shapes up with guidelines. These are pretty much the same shapes as in the front view, except they have been rotated downwards and to the side. The 3/4 view has less guidelines than the front view, but that's only because adding them would be unneccesary at this angle. We'll only be using the guidlines for the eyes, nose, and the central guideline that runs from the forehead to the chin.

Step 2:
Next, use the upper horizontal guideline to draw in the eyes and eyebrows. Draw the nose and mouth, making sure to draw the mouth very close to the nose. Add the neck, too.

Step 4:
Draw the details of his hair, including the shorter wisps that hang down over his eyes and stick out from his head. Add the wrinkles above and below his eyes. Draw his coat, and add the ponytail (which is barely visible over his shoulder). Erase all unnecessary lines and clean up your sketch.
