How to Draw Chibi Boys

how to draw chibi boys step 1

STEP 1.

First you're going to want to start out with a basic head shape and eye lines. then you'll be drawing a big rectangle with lines to show where you want your arms and legs to go! You start with a rectangle because you want your boy to be very boxy and have little shape as far as bodies go.

STEP 2.

Before we go into any technical body shape tips, go ahead and draw in the eyes. When drawing chibi boy eyes, try to keep them very plain. Try to resist any urge to give too much of a point on the side of the wide eye like I drew because it looks more like eyelashes. Boys do have eyelashes, but when they are drawn in chibis, they look too girl-like.

STEP 3.

Now you can start drawing in the body shape. Remember to follow that rectangle shape, and do not curve into it. Keep both the hands and feet small for this chibi. Uniformity is key!

STEP 4.

This is an example of what not to do to your rectangle shape. Adding curves to the shape turns the body into that of a girl, and we want to avoid that all together. Chibis can be very unisex sometimes so you have to be very careful not to tip your chibi over to the other side.

STEP 5.

Now we have to choose a hair style for our boy. I went ahead and drew up a few generic hair styles that you can put on your chibi boy. Short hair, medium messy length and long hair. Be sure to not add too much shape to the hair when drawing long hair on a boy. Keep it very generic and unstyled.

STEP 6.

So I chose the middle hairstyle.. the medium messy length. Notice the hair isn't flipped out as it curves around his head. Flipping out a medium hair style is a girls hair style, leaving it curved in is a boys hair style. It helps sometimes to look at some pictures of mens hair styles in magazines or online if you have any questions about if your hair style doesn't fit your boy.

STEP 7.

Now we need to find some fitting clothes for our boy! I chose a vest with pants. Make sure the pant legs come to a point to show that they're ironed. If you added baggy messy pants with medium messy hair, I think he might turn out too messy looking. So I drew his clothes neat and ironed.

STEP 8.

I don't think that vest is enough for him. Lets go ahead and add in a nice shirt for our chibi boy. When doing the sleeves of the shirt, make sure you keep them long. Short sleeves are girl shirt styles and long sleeves are mens shirt styles. While you're at it, go ahead and add in his three little buttons. Now, when doing the eyebrows, make sure you keep them -thick-! Thin eyebrows are female and thick eyebrows are very masculine. Even though you can't see them very well because of his hair style, go ahead and draw them peeking through his bangs.
