Step 1.

This is a very easy tutorial to learn from because it is on another form of a chibi character. Start with a circle for the head and then add the facial guidelines. You will then draw the body's line of motion as you see here for the torso, arms and l   

Step 2.

You will now start sketching out the folded style of this female chibi's bangs and or hairdo. When that is done you can draw out the eyes, color in the pupils, add eyelashes and then draw the eyebrows.

Step 3.

Finish sketching out the hairdo for this SD chibi and then add some detailing to her hair. When that is done draw in a mouth and the shape of her neck. Before you go start the lining for her shoulders.

Step 4.

Now that you have the SD characters face and head drawn out, let's move onto the arms and torso next. Start with the arms and or shirt sleeves first and pick up the lining where you left off in step three. Draw the sleeves and then draw the arms and    

Step 5.

For your last drawing step I want you to draw out her legs and then her feet and or shoes. Once that is done, draw in a lace that is tied for the front of her pants. Erase all the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one.

Step 6.

Here is what your SD character looks like when you are done. Color it in and you have just learned "how to draw super deformed chibi step by step".

Description: Hello gang, welcome back to another fun filled drawing lesson that will be on something a bit different. When I say “a bit”, that is exactly what I mean. Everyone is familiar with chibi characters right? Well I discovered something that looks like the chibi but has a different descriptive name. So what I am teaching you today with my first tutorial of the day is “how to draw super deformed chibi” step by step. What is super deformed style? Well I was wondering this myself so I did a little bit of research to find out what exactly “super deformed” means and here is what I found out; Now I know that my super deformed or SD character doesn’t quite look like the way I am describing it, but that is because I drew a super deformed chibi instead if a typical character. Now Super Deformed is another form of Japanese style art that is more or less like our caricatures that we are familiar with. SD are characters that are drawn with an over exaggerated style that make the chosen characters look stubby, small, and have bigger than usual heads. Their limbs are supposed to look short and stubby as well to make them appear to be small children. Basically it is the same thing as a chibi the only difference is SD characters have regular hands and feet, and they also have muscles and definition if you choose to have them drawn that way. SD is a part of Japanese culture and because of this, these characters are seen throughout Japan. For example, SD characters are used on advertising and billboard displays, and even with their anime and manga. I think that this style of drawing is going to blow up in a big way. When it does I will be one of the first to show you how to draw in that style. I hope you like my version on “how to draw super deformed chibi step by step. I will be back with four more drawing lessons so stay tuned in for more. Peace out and happy drawing!
