Description: I can keep going and going when it comes to drawing anime, manga, and chibi characters, animals, and objects. I will now submit a tutorial that shows you "how to draw chibi faces step by step". I know what your thinking to yourself, "you already have a tutorial on chibi expressions". And you know what, you're right. But expressions and faces are two different aspects. Drawing expressions is something you do to a face that is already drawn out. When you draw a face, you will need to chose an expression to put on that face right? Well the lesson on drawing expressions basically shows you different face styles that you can place on your own chibi character. Learning "how to draw chibi faces" is something you need to learn how to do first before you draw an expression. This tutorial will teach you how to do just that. I love drawing chibi, and in this lesson I actually show you the transformation when a manga/anime face is drawn chibi style. I had a lot of fun drawing this sketch out live yesterday and I think you guys will also get a kick out of learning "how to draw chibi faces step by step". It is incredibly easy to follow, and the best thing is, you don't have to draw all six faces. Instead you can pick and choose. Well I have to go because I still have a lot of work ahead of me. Join me next time with another fun filled online drawing lesson. Peace out and happy drawing!
