I hope you are all enjoying my last lesson on how to draw anime kids step by step. This next tutorial is going to be even better because I will be showing you how to draw anime faces step by step. I know there is a lot of people out there that have a hard time drawing faces for their anime characters. I should know because I was one of them. For a long while I had a hard time learning how to draw anime faces as well as regular faces for both men and woman. It took months of practice before I could sit there and feel confident about showing others how to draw faces, and other anime body parts. Whenever you are attempting to draw manga or anime characters you always have to keep in mind that they are suppose to have resemblance and style to the Japanese culture. Take the anime kids for instance, how often do you see regular girls or kids that have style like that? If they do then they have either a savvy fashion sense or they love manga/anime. I did a tutorial on these anime faces and with it I have included three different types of faces. There is even a Mohawk hair style of a boy’s face from the side as well as a very classy girl and then a very sad looking lonely girl that has the look of hopelessness on her face. I know that this will be a very helpful tutorial lesson because I took my time with these different looking faces. Learning how to draw anime faces step by step is a easy and helpful lesson that will aid you on the rest of your anime drawing journeys. I will be back yet again with more drawing fun so stay tuned.

The first thing you will need to do is draw a medium sized circle and then add the facial guidelines.
