Artist: catlucker / January 19, 2018

Step 1.

Here is a little pre-tip before the actual drawing steps. The guidelines won't have the blue profile face and chin because it obstructs the drawing. Just in case you need a guide for getting those chins in. Here it is. The arrows show how the chins a   

Step 2.

We are taking a shortcut in the guidelines. Draw the two circles with the long lines for the neck, shoulder and Usui's hand. Sketch them with a No. 2 pencil. Remember to do it lightly for easy erasure.

Step 3.

You might need to click on the picture to see where to draw both their eyebrows, eyes and hair. Give a curve to the spiked hair. The circle guidelines helps you to do that.

Step 4.

Now draw in their mouths, cheek, jawline, and necks. Watch closely where these relate to the guidelines and draw lightly please.

Step 5.

Take your time while drawing this picture because in this step you need to pay close attention to how her hair spikes and the empty area for his hand. Remember to draw in her ear.

Step 6.

Here is the basic color combination of the Usui and Misaki. Following this step are tips on sketching/drawing an anime kiss or any kiss.

Step 11.

The letter "S" is a great solution on drawing the two lips together in the "S" fashion.

Step 14.

Check out this cool peek at different viewpoints of a single kiss. Notice the "S" rule and "upper lip with nose" are in the bottom side profile pictures.

Step 15.

Without lighting, we have a flat subject. That's what makes Usui & Misaki so interesting, dramatic lighting. The red arrows are direction of light. Blue arrows are the shadows him being turned away from the sun, and is Misaki in his shadow. Here are    

Step 16.

Last but not least, I want to show you how great a pencil is. And you can get these same effects with a regular No. 2 pencil. The first picture shows how to hold your pencil for Overhand (great for writing & details) and Underhand (great for shading
