How to Draw Anime Couples

how to draw anime couples step 1

STEP 1.

First things first, you need to decide what kind of couple you want to draw. A girl and a guy, two girls or two guys. Depending on which you choose will alter what you can do with your picture.

STEP 2.

Size comes into play when you're drawing couples because males and females generally are different heights and builds. Males are usually about a head taller than females and their bodies are also on average have firmer muscles.

STEP 3.

Time for kisses. First things first, how faces line up during kissing. You can't go into a kiss straight on. Noses get in the way. One person has to tilt their head one way, the the other person the other way. This changes the angle of their face slightly.

STEP 4.

Since the faces are tilted, so are the lips. Here are a few examples of how they might fit together. The first two showing a girl and a guy kissing, and then two girls, and then two guys. Guys lips tend to be thinner while girls lips are generally quite a bit fuller.

STEP 5.

And now for a few different types of kissing. There is a quick peck when you just lightly press lips together for a short moment. A full kiss is when the lips lock together like puzzle pieces. And then the french, the mouths are barely touching with a little bit of tongue in the middle.

STEP 6.

Time for hugs. This image here shows how bodies fit together. A girl and a guy fit together like this: ((. The guy is taller and he has to haunch over just a little bit and the girl has to arch towards him and press her chest out. Two girls hugging fit together like this: )(, both of their bodies arching towards each other a little bit. Now since guys' bodies are a bit broader, they can't press up against other as easily as girls. They sort of have to curve in towards eachother like this: ().
