I know almost everyone that comes to Dragoart has heard of Final Fantasy and Cloud Strife. Today I will go ahead and use a suggestion by showing you "how to draw anime Cloud", step by step. I know Cloud Strife is kinda already an anime character because of the movie, but this is my female interpretation of Cloud. Besides the Katy Perry anime lesson, this one also happens to be one of my favorite as well. I love how even though this is a female, she still looks very much like Cloud and can totally pass as his sister. The hairstyle, cut off style shirt and hip style pants makes this version of Cloud attractive and fun to recreate. I know you will enjoy drawing anime Cloud Strife because I liked making the lesson. I shall return with some other cool tuts so keep those eyeballs peeled.
