"Come with me, the time is right,
There's no better team!
Arm in arm, we'll win the fight,
It's always been our dream!"
- Pokémon theme song
Ash Ketchum is a young Pokémon trainer from Pallet Town. At the age of ten, he left his home to become a Pokémon master.
As the main protagonist of the series, we've followed Ash's journey through numerous manga, anime, and films. During the Pokémon Sun and Moon series, Ash makes a thrilling discovery, one that has not occurred in hundreds of years - Ash's Greninja powers up due to a strong bond with its trainer, becoming Ash-Greninja.
Would you like to draw Ash-Greninja? This easy, step-by-step Pokémon drawing tutorial is here to show you how. All you will need is a pencil, an eraser, and a sheet of paper.
1. Begin by drawing an oval. Later, this will help you to sketch Ash-Greninja’s head.
2. Draw a second oval, partially hidden by the first. This forms the Greninja’s wrapped tongue.
3. Enclose an irregular shape beneath the head. Enclose another, smaller, irregular four-sided shape beneath it. Finally, enclose an inverted, curved triangle beneath the previous shape.
4. Enclose an irregular shape on the Greninja’s chest, erasing as necessary. The shape should resemble a half circle with a downward-facing triangle beneath it. Enclose another, smaller half-circle inside it.
5. Draw Greninja’s arm, erasing lines as necessary. Use a pair of curved lines for the upper arm and another for the lower arm. Enclose an oval on the lower arm near the elbow. Band the lower arm with a curved line. Then, use curved lines to enclose the irregular flipper-shaped hand. Draw three circles at the tip of the hand to indicate fingers. Draw two curved triangles on the back of the hand to indicate webbing between the fingers.
6. Draw the remaining arm. Use curved lines to enclose the irregular shapes of the upper arm, lower arm, and hand. Draw the webbing between the fingers using curved lines, and draw a circle at the end of each.
7. Enclose two teardrop shapes beneath the torso to indicate Greninja’s upper legs. Enclose an oval at each knee. Draw one leg in profile, using curved lines to form the rounded toes and the claw on the back of the foot. For the remaining leg, outline an inverted “Y” shape. Connect the branches using a curved line, and draw a circle at the tip of each toe.
8. Sketch the top of Greninja’s head, erasing as necessary. Draw an irregular, elongate diamond-like shape down the center of the face. Use curved lines to sketch the horn-like projections on each side of it. Enclose the side of the face using short curved lines that meet at jagged points.
9. Detail the face. For each eye, draw a circle banded with a line to indicate the eyelid. Draw two ovals within it, shading between them to indicate the pupil. Draw a triangle extending from the front of the eye, and a lightning bolt shape from the rear. Draw four pairs of curved lines from Greninja’s back, allowing them to meet at gentle points. Band them with curved lines. Use a long, curved line that doubles back upon itself to form Greninja’s tongue.
Color Ash-Greninja. He is blue with red, black, and white markings and a pink tongue.
According to the Encyclopaedia Britannica , the cross is "the principal symbol of the Christian religion." Millions of people wear a cross on a necklace or employ the cross in body art or to decorate their homes, vehicles, or clothing.
The cross as a symbol has a long history spanning numerous non-Christian religions. Simple X or + marks are found in prehistoric cave drawings. In ancient Egypt, the cross-like ankh or crux ansata - translated "cross with a handle - was often depicted in the hand of the pharaoh or of various deities. It was used both as a fertility symbol and to represent life. W. E. Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words also notes that the cross or t was used as a symbol for the Chaldean god Tammuz.
For 300 years after the founding of Christianity, there is no historical evidence of the use of this symbol in worship. It came into popularity when promoted by Roman Emperor Constantine, between 306 and 337 A.D. Throughout the Middle Ages in Europe, the cross was used as a religious symbol. The design, for example, adorned the shields of knights and crusaders. The cross also appears in much of the religious artwork from the sixth century onward, appearing in paintings, on the cover and pages of religious texts, and in architecture, especially of churches.

All you will need is a pencil, a piece of paper, and an eraser. Note that in each step, new lines are highlighted in blue, while lines drawn in previous steps are shown in black.

The type of bone typically rendered in cartoons - and in this drawing guide - is known as a long bone. Long bones are hard and dense. They give the body strength and structure and are used to help you move around. Long bones can be found in the arms, legs, wrist, ankle, and fingers. The thigh bone, or femur, is a long bone.
Long bones and filled with both yellow and red bone marrow. Red marrow produces blood cells and yellow marrow is used to store fats.
Why do we feed bones to dogs? Bones contain minerals and nutrients. They also satisfy a dog's desire to chew, which in turn helps clean their teeth. Additionally, the dog food that we feed our pets today was not invented until 1860. For thousands of years, family dogs were simply fed table scraps. This often included bones and undesirable portions of meat.
