How to Draw an Anime Guy

Artist: Dawn / April 19, 2015

Step 1.

Start with a head guide like so, then sketch in the facial guidelines along with the shoulders and arms.

Step 2.

You will now define the shape of the face like so, then draw the front and back part of the neck. Once that is done you can sketch in the hairline.

Step 3.

We will finish the hairstyle which in this case is short and jagged at the ends.

Step 4.

Using the facial guidelines draw in the anime character's face. Start with the eyes and then draw in the nose, mouth and markings on the cheeks. The stare gives this character personality.

Step 5.

Okay guys, you will now draw in the hand which is near the chin. Once that is done begin sketching out the clothing starting with the shirt collar.

Step 6.

We will continue on by drawing the shoulders, arms and baggy sleeves. The gi this figure is wearing is pretty baggy so be sure to add those crinkles, wrinkles, folds and creases.

Step 7.

Continue to work on the body by drawing the belt, buckle and then the rest of the gi which is pretty long. Once that is done you can draw the legs.

Step 8.

Lastly, finish him off buy drawing the belt ribbon and you are done. Erase the mistakes you made followed by the guidelines/shapes.

Step 9.

Here is the line art. You can now color him in and show folks what you have just drawn.
