How to Draw Anime Emo

Artist: Dawn / May 24, 2011

Step 1.

Draw a circle for the head, and then sketch out another shape for the torso, and then the lower body shape. Add the guidelines for the arm, and the abdomen.

Step 2.

As you can see you will begin sketching out the shape of the girls face and notice how it points at the chin. When that is done you can sketch out her hairstyle which is parted and feathered to the right side.

Step 3.

Sketch out her one big eye, and notice how the lash is thick and pointed. You will then draw in her ear, nose, and mouth. If you want to add piercings thats fine, if you don't thats okay too.

Step 4.

Well, now you are ready to start sketching out her long locks. I start on the left side because that is where her hair is longest and where it is more visible. Draw in her neck, and then draw out the shoulders, shirt sleeves, and the shapes of her br   

Step 5.

Sketch the shape of her sitting body which looks very curvy and feminine. When you are done with that, draw in her necklace, and pendant like so. Of course you can draw in a different pendant if you want.

Step 6.

Sketch out her long toned arm, and then draw in the anime style hand and fingers. Next, sketch out her hair that falls behind her back. To finish this step all you have to do is draw out her sweatband that covers her entire forearm and wrist.

Step 7.

This step is pretty simple, all you have to do here is draw out her belt, and the belt loops on her waist. You also need to sketch in some detailing.

Step 8.

Okay guys, you are almost done with this tutorial. All you have to do now is draw out the one leg, and like you see here she is wearing skinny jeans. Add some ruffle at the base of her leg or ankle, and draw in some of her foot that is showing.

Step 9.

The last drawing step is upon you. Here all that needs to be done is drawing out her other leg which is bent up like the other. Add some seam lines on her pants and then begin erasing the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one.

Step 10.

Here is what your new emo anime girl looks like now that you are all done. The best part about this tutorial is how much fun you're gonna have coloring her in. Thanks so much guys!

Description: I said that I was going to submit some cool anime stuff since I didn’t upload anything awesome in the last few days. Today I will start by submitting this tutorial on "how to draw anime emo", step by step. Obviously you know that there is such thing as anime emo. It’s nothing more than emo character drawings done in anime form. Now because drawing anime is such a versatile concept, there is literally a whole bunch of ways you can create your own figure in both anime, and emo form. I had fun with this emo girl because even though she’s emo, she looks very colorful and full of style. I love her arm warmers, and colorful sweatbands on her wrist. The skinny jeans and white belt breaks up the dark colored pink top, and dark colored pants very nicely. Another thing I did with this character is draw her face to look somewhat friendly instead of miserable. This way here she has a welcoming expression so artists feel invited to tackle this tutorial on how to draw an anime emo. You can also choose to make this figure a boy if you like all you have to do is change the hairstyle, eye, clothing and pose. I think a majority of you guys will like this lesson. I guess that’s it for now, or for this description. I will be back soon so stay tuned!
