How to Draw Naoko From The Wind Rises

Artist: Dawn / October 22, 2013

Step 1.

Begin by making the outlined shape for her head then draw the torso shape which tappers in at the bottom. Sketch in the facial guidelines too.

Step 2.

Sketch out the shape of Naoko's face like so, then draw in the outline for her ear.

Step 3.

You are already almost done with this lesson. You will now draw out the hat and as you can see this is a very lazy looking hat. Draw the band around the base of the hat, then sketch in the chunks of hair starting with the bangs.

Step 4.

Use the facial guidelines to draw in the eyes, eyebrows and nose. Once that is done you can draw the mouth, chin and inner ear detailing.

Step 5.

I don't know if I mentioned, but Naoko is a painter and because of this she has a very relaxed look on her face and her body is in a pose to express how or what she is thinking. Draw in the loose fitting jacket or overcoat in the form of shoulders an   

Step 6.

For the last step you will draw in the open part of the jacket which is the collar. When that is done draw the overall straps, and front part of the jump suit too. Add the buttons and detailing to the right shoulder or sleeve. Since this is the last    

Step 7.

Here is the line art when you are done. Color in Naoko so she looks like her colorful self. I'm sure you all did a great job.

Description: I have two characters from a new movie that was released in September of this year. Up next, I will show you "how to draw Naoko from The Wind Rises. Her full name is Naoko Satomi and she is one of the main characters in the film. The movie adaptation of the manga was written and directed by the same mane who brought you Howels Moving Castle, Paprika, Ponyo, and Spirited Away, and that man is Hayao Miyazaki. I am such a big fan of his works that whenever he comes out with something new I look forward to either seeing it or reading it. I didn't read The Wind Rises because right now I just don't have that kind of time. Anyways, look for the second lesson of another character from The Wind Rises right after this tut. Adios amigos or peace out.
