How to draw Anime girl

How to draw Anime girl. This tutorial on how to draw Anime girl body is basic. So if you should follow step by step images below watch the video I demo, you should be able to do it also.
Okay start this step by drawing out the rough construction lines and shapes to form a nice frame for the female anime body. Draw out a circle for the head and then add the facial guidelines. Add a neck line and then the rectangle shape of her squared torso. Add one oval shape for her hips. And more straight lines drawn out as upper leg part of this female body. The easiest way is to think of body part and break them into geometry shapes to start with.

In this second step you will start it out by drawing the shape of the chin and jaw. Once that is done add the shape of the neck and shoulders

Then you are going to work on adding more shape and definition to the body. Start by drawing out the shape of the head and hair style and then add the bottom eye line. Add the eyebrow lines and then the mouth and nose. Give her some collar bones. Detail her torso by adding an arched line for her rib and then an arch line on her breast. Erase all the constructionlines and shapes that you drew in step one

  14. Loxton says:

    I draw in the same way as you, I love using a mechanical clutch pencil. Just curious, what thickness and lead type are you using? You get a much “thicker” look to your lines then I do.

  15. Rene Casillas Jr. says:

    Thanks. I Really appreciate it.

  16. Kelly Dappydoo Haywood says:

    start with the eyes first. as the eyes give character. type how to draw anime eyes in google or youtube. then once you are confident you can do the face and nose etc. just build your way it helps. 😀 hope this works

  17. Rene Casillas Jr. says:

    Much Appreciated. But anything in specific? or just type “How to draw” or should i start with “How to draw anime/manga”?

  18. Rene Casillas Jr. says:

    Is this a tutorial for someone who already has a decent idea of how to draw? I want to start drawing anime type characters but im a 100% beginner at drawing in general. Where should i start to learn to draw?

  19. Xia Taptara says:

    Did you get the third step right? Do it again, and again and again. Trust me the fifth one will always look better than the first. Peace!
