How to Draw Makoto Tachibana

Artist: Dawn / April 23, 2014

Step 1.

Let us begin by drawing the guides for Makoto's head and torso. Start with the head, then sketch in the facial guidelines. Once the torso guide is added, you can proceed to step two.

Step 2.

Begin sketching out the shape of Makoto's face like so. When that is done you can draw in his ear shape, then proceed to step three.

Step 3.

To fill in the gaps for Makoto's face all you have to do is draw in his semi long spiked messy hairstyle. This should include bangs, sideburns, and some hair on the back of his neck.

Step 4.

Now we will work on his face by drawing the eyebrows, shapes of his eyes, then draw in the nose, mouth and detailing inside the ear. Of course you will be using the facial guidelines to aid you in this step.

Step 5.

Believe it or not, but you are almost done with drawing Makoto from Free!. All you have to do here is draw the back part of his neck, followed by the shoulders, torso and arms.

Step 6.

Up next you will draw in the button up shirt that is resting on his back and shoulders. Draw the pin stripes and then move to the next step.

Step 7.

For the last step all you have to do is sketch in the detailing to his neck, chest and torso. Draw the swimming goggles around the his neck, then begin erasing the mistakes.

Step 8.

And there you have it, a finished drawing of Makoto Tachibana from Free!. All that is left to do now is color him in.

Description: So I will be uploading a few lessons on some pretty cute male anime characters from the series 'Free!'. First, let's follow this tutorial on "how to draw Makoto Tachibana", step by step. Makoto is one of the main figures of the series and as you can see he is one handsome devil. I'm not familiar with Free!, but I know it must be popular because I have been getting bombarded with requests to do some of the characters. From what I've read so far, Free! is a series that is centered around a handful of boys from an all boys school swimming team known as Iwatobi High School swimming team. His team mates are also cute, and I have to say, even though I don't draw male anime characters often, Makoto was pretty fun. I hope you enjoy drawing Makoto Tachibana and stay tuned in to see tuts on his mates. Adios folks.
