Hey everyone, I’m back in the saddle again and with my return I will be submitting some cool, and incredibly cute tutorials that I KNOW almost everyone will love. To start, let’s learn "how to draw Kawaii faces", step by step. I do realize that some of you will not know exactly what Kawaii is, but the terminology is very simple to explain. You see, kawaii literally means ‘cute, lovable, and adorable’. Drawing kawaii style is very much like drawing chibi. There are only a few differences with the concept art and that is the simplicity in character design, as well as the overall cuteness between the two drawing styles. Chibi figures can be drawn incredibly simple, or they can be drawn in a difficult manner as well whereas kawaii style is almost as easy as creating with your eyes closed. Anyways, this lesson will teach you how easy it is when you decide that you want to start drawing kawaii style in the form of faces. I shall return with some more drawing fun in a bit so try and stay tuned in to see what else I have for you. Adios people and enjoy your drawing day.
