Hello people welcome back to another awesome drawing tutorial here on DragoArt.com. I am currently watching my sister and brother play Resident Evil 4 for the Game Cube. The game is wicked awesome and fun! We stay up hours playing the game even though it is pretty old. Unlike some people, I like hanging out with my brothers and sisters, they are like the only people you can trust. Another thing about hanging out with your siblings is that they have qualities about them that are attaching! I love them to death!!! Anyways, today we are going to learn how to draw an anime female body! I know a lot of people have trouble with drawing anime females so I came up with a very detailed lesson to help you improve your skills. I used to have a serious problem with the waist and chest area of a female body. I know now that I’m pretty good at it…I mean I’m not that good but I’m just good to an acceptation. I have to work on the bodies a little more before I become really good but as an artist I know that it takes hard work and determination to become the best you can be at something you love to do. So in this tutorial I will show you a few tips and tricks on how to make the female body a little easier. I wanted to make a quality tutorial like the ones you see in the how to draw manga books. I know for a fact, about two years ago I used to rage my searches for how to draw anime female bodies on the internet. The tutorials I found didn’t really help me. I tried my best to make mine a little better than the others. Learning how to draw anime girls is pretty hard. When I got my hands on the aspect I had so much confidence. As soon as I had serious trouble with the drawings, my confidence shot right down T_T. Well I hope this tutorial will come of use.

I gave you three different types of body posses to help make learning how to draw female anime bodies a lot easier.
