Are you ready for some awesomeness? I hope so because I am about to show you "how to draw a Japanese anime girl", step by step . I have been wanting to make a lesson like this for a long while but I never got around to it because I had other work to do like fill requests, and work on Dragoart's look. I love how the small petals from the Sakura tree fall in front of this lovely looking girl. The Japanese style parasol decorates the background by adding depth, color and balance. This drawing of a Japanese anime girl is very tranquil, which means you should probably play some Asian style music as you tackle this lesson. I had so much fun with making it, and I hope you do too. Adios amigos and enjoy.

STEP 4.

Up next, as you know many Japanese women have long, very straight hair. This is the type of style you will draw for this anime girl. Drawing the hair will also add the shape of the head. Sketch out the long straight hair, and when you do this make sure the hair goes past her shoulders and arms. It should also be swaying in the breeze instead of just laying flat.
