How to Draw an Anime School Girl

Step 1.

Begin with sketching out the girl's face shape like so.

Step 2.

You will now sketch out the round part of the head which also happens to be the bangs.

Step 3.

In this step you will draw out the thickness of the eye shapes. When that is done you can draw the thin eyebrows next.

Step 4.

Complete the eyes by drawing the eyeballs, add cheek bumps, then add a nose and mouth.

Step 5.

This anime school girl's face is done. All you have to do now is sketch in the rest of her hairstyle which should be short and pigtails. Make the ends straight lined but separated chunks.

Step 6.

Up next, draw the shape of her neck along with the flaps for her school uniform blouse. The edges should also have a pin stripe trim like you see here.

Step 7.

Next up, draw the shoulder and sleeve. As you can see her blouse is a short sleeve with a thin trim line along the cuff. You will also need to draw in her arm.

Step 8.

The next thing you will do is work on getting her chest and torso drawn out. Start with the big lumps, then draw in her small waist along with the ruffle of her blouse. Keep the design the same as you add the thin pin stripe along the bottom of the blouse. Add the scarf like tie as well.

Step 9.

So here is what we've done so far. We drew the head, hair, face, torso, and shirt, now we need to draw in her hips and pleated short school girl skirt. The edges of the skirt should be jagged looking because the pleats are being lifted by her raised thigh.

Step 10.

All you have to do here is draw in her legs, thighs only.

Step 11.

And lastly, draw in her pleats, then you are done with drawing an anime school girl. If you made mistakes just erase them now.

Step 12.

Here is how your finished drawing looks when you are done. Now you can have fun coloring her in.

Okay folks, today I will start my tutorial day with this lesson on "how to draw an anime school girl", step by step. By looking at this girl you would think that her chest is too big and her butt is too round. I say the best way to create new anime characters is to make their appearance exaggerated a bit. So, what I did was draw her chest and back end bigger then normal. This whole concept came about just by sketching out a simple body pose with no face, arms, legs or hair. I looked at the figure and said to myself, "what I can turn this into?". That's when I thought of a school girl because a lot of kids are graduating this month. Anyways, I hope you enjoy drawing an anime school girl folks. Have fun and I'll be back.
