How to Draw a Chibi For Kids

Artist: Dawn / January 26, 2011

Step 1.

First things first, you have to draw out a large head shape that is in the form of a circle. When that is done add the guidelines for the face, and body.

Step 2.

Now draw a simple line that will start the shape or structure of the chibi's jaw line and chin.

Step 3.

Here you will start drawing out the eyes and as you can see the top eye lids are a lot thicker and bolder than the bottom.

Step 4.

Finish drawing out the eyes like so, and then draw some more simple lines for the eyebrows, and nose.

Step 5.

Now you will begin drawing out the upper body which includes the shoulders, arms, chest, and waist.

Step 6.

Continue to draw out the body by sketching out the rest of the torso which is the hips, and then draw out the feet too.

Step 7.

Okay, now that we have the body all drawn out as well as the face, you can now begin drawing out the hair. You can choose to give your chibi any style that you wish, or you can draw the same type of hair you see.

Step 8.

Believe or not but, you are on your last drawing step. All you have to do now is draw in the clothes which is easily done by drawing sleeves, and a shirt line. And then draw out the cute ruffled skirt. Erase the lines and shapes that you drew in step   

Step 9.

Look how nice your chibi character looks once it is all done. Color her in and then move onto something new. I thank you for joining me with this lesson on how to draw a chibi for kids.
