How to Draw Chibi Characters

Artist: Dawn / January 6, 2010

Step 1.

This is really not a first step, it's more like a preview of how your chibi's will look like when your done. Of course I didn't make a tutorial out all eight chibi characters, but just learning how to draw two of them, should get you on the right pat   

Step 2.

Draw two medium sized circles for the chibi heads, and then add the facial guidelines. Next draw two more circle shapes for the torso and or body. Add the guidelines for the arms, and legs.

Step 3.

Here you will draw out the shape or outline of the chibi faces as you see here. The chibi to the left has a different shaped face than the chibi to the right. Once you have drawn out their faces you can sketch out the outline of both hairstyles and o   

Step 4.

Once you have drawn out the rest of their hair, and the shapes of their shirts and arms, you can start drawing out the shape of the big chibi eyes, and then color in the pupils. Add some scratchy looking lines for their cheeks, and then draw the rest   

Step 5.

This is your last drawing step and all you have to do is draw out the bottom half of their bodies and then give the boy some eyebrows. Next add some definition and detail to the chibi clothes and then add a cute small design of your choice on the chi

Description: Just a while ago I was drawing live for you all, and I drew a series of chibi people that came out looking so incredibly awesome. I drew eight separate chibi that all look different, and are all doing something unique. I haven't really did any good chibi art lately which is why I wanted to submit a lesson that gives you a detailed tutorial on โ€œhow to draw chibi characters, step by stepโ€. I think two of my favorite chibi is the one with that is holding the two pencils as well as wearing glasses. The other is the bully which is the last chibi in the top row. I had so much fun drawing live with you all even though there was some arguing and complaining. Again I want everyone to know that I will get around to filling requests that was made a while ago, I didn't forget about any of you, or any of your request. Anyway, let me get off that subject for now because I am really excited to be submitting this lesson on these chibi drawings. I honestly can say that they are all some of the best chibi characters that I have drawn in a while. If you look back on some of my chibi art, you will see that I have improved with my style ten fold. I'm no different from any of you other artists out there, in fact I know that there is people out there that can draw way better than me, and way better than I could ever draw. Talent is something that can be acquired, or you can obtain talent because your born with it. Of course art is not the only talent that I'm talking about. There is so many talented people. I think every single person has a special ability that makes them different from everyone else. If you can learn how to tap into your creative side, you will experience a whole new perspective of world and the way you think. Expression through art has been one of the top ten healing factors since the beginning of time. Enough about that, let's get down to the real nitty gritty shall we? I think it's time I submit this incredible drawing lesson that will teach you โ€œhow to draw chibi characters, step by stepโ€. I hope you enjoy this submission, I had fun drawing it live, and I will meet you guys back in โ€œlive streamโ€ tomorrow. In the mean time have fun, and happy drawing. Peace!
