How to Draw Chibi Girls

Step 1.


Posing and base skeletal guide lines can look very different for all different types of chibis. They all will work for chibis, but some work better for other chibis. If you want to draw a curvy waisted/hipped chibi, I would suggest using a circle,    

Step 2.


Females can be boxy and without curves because chibis can be so unisex. However, unlike boys, chibi girls can have nice curves as well! The chibi on your left has nice curvy hips and thighs, but no breasts. The chibi on your right has breasts and    

Step 3.


When drawing a curvy chibi, there are a few places you should really look out for and make sure they don't end up too straight or boxy. On your left, we have a flat chested chibi with a curvy lower body. To do this, make sure the waist area just be   

Step 4.


Chibi girl eyes start out just as basic as chibi boy eyes. Start with a thick shape for the outer semi-circle and draw in your preferred iris. Chibis have large cute eyes so try to keep your iris large and taking up most of the area of the eye.

Step 5.


Now to take these eyes from regular eyes to pretty girl eyes, just fill in the thick area and then begin to add lashes to the outer edge of each eye. There can be a whole lot of lashes, or just a couple. This is entirely up to you. Then go ahead a   

Step 6.


Now all you need is a head. This is taken from my chibi heads tutorial because it shows you all different types of heads as well as the guidelines you should use with them. For this tutorial I'll be using head #4 because I think my chibi looks best   

Step 7.


Now to start building a chibi with what you learned! Start with the basic head circle. This will help you determine just how big you want your head to be.

Step 8.


Now because I want to use the flat chin head, we need to cut off part of the circle. I left the part I cut off very light so you can see where it happened. This chibi is going to be slightly turned so don't cut the chin straight across the body, cu   

Step 9.


I've drawn in some light guide lines to help with eyes. Now, taking what you learned about drawing chibi girl eyes, you can start to construct these eyes. The red outline shows you the basic starting shape without the lashes. Start with this shape   

Step 10.


After you have your eyes, draw in a cute chibi open mouth that shows her tounge. Draw in her bangs and eye lines so we know just how far down her hair is going to go. It should reach to about or just above her shoulders.

Step 11.


Now using your skeletal outline, draw in the body. Make sure to keep the chest flat and the rib area much thinner than her thighs. This chibi is just going to be a large thigh chibi. Erase the part of the chin that overlapped her neck so it is all   

Step 12.


Now we want to add in her shirt. Make sure the clothes are on her and not part of her skin by drawing the clothing off her body a bit. Poof out the sleeves by using angles and make sure the focal point of her chest is the circle brooch in the cente   

Step 13.


Using a thick square, draw in the buckle for her belt off to the side of her, and draw it wrapping around her waist. Don't forget the holes on the belt! Her pants are really really tight up around her thighs so you really only have to draw where th   

Step 14.


Following the shape of her feet, draw in some cute little boots with two clips on each of them. Notice they are touching the foot at the bottom and at the top, they tuck and come off the leg? This helps get the feel that her feet are in the boots i   

Step 15.


Now draw in the rest of her short hair. The lowest part of the hair should already be drawn so make sure it starts to curve up from there. Draw the hair off the head shape to make her head feel bigger than it actually is and give volume to her hair   

Step 16.


Now for some detail! I love to see artists push themselves and go for more detail so if you're continuing on, good for you! Lets first start by adding 4 extra circles and 2 curved prongs to the brooch in the center of her shirt. Then we can add in   

Step 17.


Now you can add in the bands around her arm and the frilly lace glove on her hand. To get the lace effect, just draw tear drops in the highest part of the bumpy cloth and circles below and between them. This creates a nice simple lace. Draw in the   

Step 18.


Go ahead and add in another thin line to the collar and draw in some folds on her sleeves and around the brooch. This adds to the puffy sleeve look and helps make it more realistic. Draw in a thin line to the side band on her head also.

Step 19.


Now add in the gems to the band, making sure they have another circle or half circle around them to show they have a setting and aren't just the gems alone.

Step 20.


Now you're done! Congratulations! I hope you had fun and happy drawing everyone!

Description: Hi ya'll! I drew a boys tutorial a bit back and figured a girls tutorial would be nice to see around too. I've also had a couple of requests for this so here it is! The end chibi for this tutorial may seem complicated but don't worry! The first part of this tutorial will show you how to draw the easy version and the second part will be for the more advanced people who like to add lots of fine detail. Take from this what you will and you can even dress her up in something else! Enjoy!
