How to Draw Hayao Miyazaki, Studio Ghibli


Make the outline for Hayao's head shape like so, then sketch in the facial guidelines.


Using the facial guidelines draw the frames and lens' for the eyeglasses. You will need to draw the glasses in first because Hayao is never without his glasses.


Next, draw in the squinted eyes which are slightly arched. The lining should be thick, and there should also be some crease or wrinkling at the corners of each eye. Draw the thick eyebrows and add the creases over each brow.


Next, sketch in the simple shapes and lined nose. Color in the nostrils, then move to step five.


Here you will sketch out the entire shape of Hayao's face and head. The facial hair should also be added at this point and there should be some hair on his forehead.


You will draw the opening around the mouth area for both the mustache and beard, then draw in the lip and smile. As you can see his smile shows off the top and bottom teeth.


For the last step you will draw the ears, then sketch in the forehead wrinkles and then some indents on the cheeks. Erase the mistakes and guidelines you made too.


Here is the line art once you are done. Now you can have fun coloring in your drawing on Hayao Miyazaki.

Description: I will begin my tutorial lesson day by uploading a lesson on the man who made a bunch of my favorite films like Howle's Moving Castle, Spirited Away, Ponyo, Laputa: Castle in the Sky, My Neighbor Totoro, Kiki's Delivery Service and Princess Mononoke to name a few. He started his anime/manga directing career with Studio Ghibli in 1985. He is a very happy looking man and is very, very good at what he does. This lesson is going to show you "how to draw Hayao Miyazaki", step by step. The expression on his face is the one that you will often see him in when posing in pictures or photos. Anyways, have fun with drawing Hayao and I will be back soon. Adios people.
