Description: Drawing anime figures has been a challenge for me over the past year. But since I have been practicing on a daily basis, I have gotten exceptionally better over time. I now find myself drawing anime people all the time now. For my first lesson of the day I will be showing you "how to draw a boy" figure anime style step by step. I know that there are lessons online that teaches you how to draw boys, girls, men and woman. This lesson is not only going to do the same thing, it will show you how to draw his bedtime teddy as well. I decided to draw a small boy (about seven years old) who is wearing pajamas and holding his teddy bear by the arm. I had a lot of fun sketching out this figure and I also love how the anime child came out. Whenever you draw anime people, you have to make sure that you draw their faces to match the sizes of their bodies. For instance, if you want to draw an anime person that is between the ages sixteen and up, you have to draw the face to match the shape, size and age of the body. Anyways this tutorial is going to be relatively simple to do because the anime figure is a young child. Remember you don’t have to color the clothes to look like pajamas; you can color and draw them to look like regular clothes if you want. I hope you have fun learning "how to draw a child" figure, step by step. I shall return in a bit so don’t go anywhere for too long. Peace out!
