I feel that this next lesson is very important to upload because it will literally teach you “how to draw chibis” the right way. I know there are a bunch of lessons that I have uploaded on all kinds of different chibi animals, characters, and chibi anime/manga characters as well. Drawing chibi is something that blew up in a way that is basically unimaginable. I mean, I remember when chibi characters and drawings where just something that people drew in their spare time. I think that the chibi phenomenon started blowing up late last year and just has intensified over time. There are three different types of chibi that I draw and all of them can be seen in varies lessons that I have on DragoArt. The first chibi style is the smallest out of them all. This chibi figure is about three and a half heads tall and all the limbs are rounded without any hint of fingers or toes. The heads are large and the faces are very basic. Big eyes, and a mouth. The smallest version of chibi usually doesn’t have a nose or even a hint of a nose. The second version of chibi that I draw is the style that has a bit of a bigger body. They are about four and a half heads tall and usually have just a thumb on the nub that is called a hand, or actual small fingers. The last of them all is a full five heads tall. This type of chibi form looks more like a small child because they have feet and hands. I know what you are thinking to yourself, what in the world is three heads, four heads, so on and so forth? Let me explain. With anime/manga, size comparisons are scaled by heads. Since chibis are a sole form of manga and anime, this rule also applies to this style of character creation. Both manga and anime is developed by Japanese animation teams and creators. The models that I used have bald heads and no clothes. Drawing chibi is a great way to create animals and even yourself in this baby form. Another fun way to play with this type of style, is to draw manga chibi or anime chibi. I love sketching out my favorite characters from various comics and shows. I think this tutorial will help you guys learn "how to draw chibis step by step" in a better way. Peace out people, I am outta here. I will be back later with one more lesson that will blow some of you dudes out there away. Adios!
