Well I hope everyone here on DragoArt.com had a very happy New Year and holiday. Now because one of my last tutorials was a humongous hit I have decided to do another tutorial on how to draw an anime male body figures step by step. I know some of you said that I should put boxers on my male figure and believe me I considered it, but after thinking of it I said “nah, I’ll give him the body of a Ken doll”. And so I did. I know that many of you will find this lesson helpful and appreciated because when I was trying to learn how to draw anime bodies I couldn’t find any tutorial site that could aid me with my faults. I did however teach myself how to draw anime figures when I purchased a book that showed me how to fix my problem and draw a whole lot better. Now instead of you having to buy a book, I am going to show you what I have learned in this easy step by step drawing lesson on how to draw anime bodies for a male. I absolutely loved the way that this lesson came out because he is so neat and portioned. To tell you the truth I think I may have done a better job with this anime male figure than the female. I know some of you will beg to differ, but for me this sketch drawing came out wicked. I hope you will use this lesson to your full advantage to help better your skills at drawing anime body figures. If you need any more assistance on drawing bodies, here's a tutorial: "how to draw a body", step by step. I will be back with more drawing fun in a bit so stay tuned fellow artist there is more on the way.
