How to Draw Kairi
Draw the frame for her character starting with the head shape, and then the facial guidelines. You will then draw out the arched shoulder lines, and then draw a line for the torso which connects to her waist. Add the long leg lines too.
Lets draw her face at a close up view before you get to her body. Draw the eyes, nose, and mouth and then sketch out the beginning shape of her face.
Next, finish drawing her eyes, and then sketch in her eyeballs and pupils. Draw a hint of a bottom lip. and then sketch out her short hair style that has pointed or sharp edges.
Now that her hair and face is all set you can start drawing out her shoulders, arms, and torso. Add that wrinkle right at her waist under her breast.
Now you will sketch out the top of Kairi's dress. This includes the straps, top, and under shirt. Draw the bottom line for her shirt and then draw the "V" shaped opening like you see here.
Add more detailing to her top, and then draw out her skirt. Although her skirt is pretty short, you can still see that it is tasteful. Draw the pockets, and then move to the next step.
Begin sketching out her legs which buckle in the middle as you see here, and then move to the next step.
You are almost done with this lesson, and all you need to do is draw out the legs, and then draw her shoes which are exaggerated a bit in size.
Add the laces and then you are all done. Erase all the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one, and proceed on to see what your drawing should look like.

Description: I might as well finally submit a tutorial that has been requested by more than ten people for almost a year already. I'm sure everyone is familiar with the game “Kingdom Hearts” right? Well in the game there is a handful of major characters; Sora, and Riku just to name two. This lesson is going to show you "how to draw Kairi", step by step. She is one of the more popular characters from the game series with the first being; Kingdom Hearts, Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories, and Kingdom Hearts II. Kairi is also one of the seven Princesses of Heart too. In the game Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep, it takes place ten years earlier which makes Kairi only four years old. In the first KH, she is fifteen years old. I like Kairi's character but to me, Ruki is the best. I mean don't get me wrong Sora, and Tidus is awesome too, I just like Ruki better. Those three characters have always been the main protagonists of the series and I think they always will be. I love the story line, and I also love how there are other cool characters created by Disney. I had so much fun drawing Kairi and the end results are really awesome. Her hair, face, clothes and shoes look so clean and colorful, it makes me want to play the game. Unfortunately I can't because I don't have the game or the system to do so. I have to go because there is still four more tutorials that I have to upload still. Have fun learning "how to draw Kairi", step by step, and when you are done you can color her in and add her to your drawing collection. I will be back later, so try and sty tuned in for the next upcoming lessons. Peace peeps!
