How to Draw a Anime Girl

Artist: Dawn / January 27, 2017

Step 1.

This is what I was talking about when I said that there was a helpful tip before you will actually start this lesson. I just talk about how easier your figure will be to draw if you sketch out the body first. Once that body is drawn, and all the port   

Step 2.

Start by drawing a circle for the head, and then add the facial guidelines. Next, you will draw out the wire figure framing lines that will be in this position and pose of your anime girl character.

Step 3.

Begin sketching out the structured shape of her face, and then add the shape of her neck, and the lining for her eyes using the facial guidelines you drew in step one. Before you leave step two, make sure you start the ear, and nose.

Step 4.

Now draw the eyes in fully, and then sketch out the full definition of the mouth. Next, you will first lightly sketch out her long blowing hair, and then sketch out the full, puffy shape of her bangs.

Step 5.

Add some detailing and definition under her hair, and on her ear. Next, begin sketching out her torso which is in a sailor style top. I drew her breast to be a bit exaggerated, but you can make them smaller if you wish.

Step 6.

Add the detailing to her blouse, which is basically stretch lines from her chest. When that is done sketch out her entire left arm, and hand and then draw the sleeve, and outline of her shirt and dress like shown.

Step 7.

The next thing you will do is sketch out her skirt which has a lot of pleats, and folds. Next begin drawing out the shape of her thighs, and lower legs and make sure that you sketch in her belt too. When that is finished you can move to the last draw   

Step 8.

All you have to do to finish this anime girl off is, draw the lining and definition for her knees, and then finish sketching out her legs, and feet. Erase all the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one.

Step 9.

When your sketch is finished, it should have come out looking like the one you see here. Now you can go over a color pallet and choose what shades you like your anime girl wearing.

Description: How did you guys like that lesson on drawing realistic manga? I loved the finished sketched image of the two manga girls. Speaking of manga girls, I was looking through the anime/manga section under 'female body', and saw that I didn't have a lesson that taught you guys "how to draw a anime girl". How weird is that? Out of all the freakin anime and manga I drew, I can't believe I never did anything on just drawing an anime girl. I know I made a lesson on anime girls which is in the top 50. The sketch that I did make for this tutorial, is a really carefree looking girl that is sketched out anime style. Before the lesson begins, I fill you in on a helpful tip that may aid you to understanding anime art better. Even though I don't think I'm perfect in drawing anything, I do however believe that my anime drawing skills have improved a great deal. Looking back on some of the work I used to do, makes my earlier sketches look extremely childish and amateur. I guess you can say that I'm my own best proof that when you draw everyday, and keep practicing with every chance you get, and really love what you are doing. I think that this tutorial, is the perfect style to show you "how to draw a anime girl", step by step. This is a very common way for an anime female figure to look in some of your favorite anime or manga series. Of course I may have exaggerated a bit with the bossism, but that is all part of drawing anime style. Have fun with this tutorial, and remember, I still have two more tutorials on the way. Peace out people, and happy drawing!
