Okay well in this next tutorial I will be showing you how to draw a very cute Chibi girl. Now as many of you know these Chibi characters have become very popular lately and I really don’t I know why. I mean yeah they are cute and all but, that’s it. I really have no idea what the whole purpose of a Chibi is to tell you the truth. I know that the whole phenomenon was created by the Japanese. In fact the word Chibi means “small” or “little person”. These pint sized animated characters have rapidly become the “it” thing in America as well as all over the world. Now, this type of drawing is when anime/manga characters are miniaturized into small, child-like formation. While in this state they are also very cute as well. That means you can take an ugly looking character in regular form, turn his image into Chibi form and instead if being ugly he will become a cute little being that is kissable. When drawing in this type of style it is sometimes called ‘super-deformed’ in the west and is pronounced ‘chee-be’ or Chibi. These drawn up characters are probably going to be here for a long while since they were generated from Japanese anime and manga characters. My mom asked me last week I think, what a Chibi was. She was holding this pen with a small baby looking character of Winnie the Pooh, so I said “that is, that little baby looking Pooh on the pen you are holding in your hand”. She said with confusion “oh, okay”. I was like I know right…8-) Anyways there is really nothing more to say about these strange little characters. I figured that they are a perfect concept to teach kids and other folks how to draw because they are so easy. So that is what you will be learning how to do today. You will learn how to draw a Chibi girl step by step. The instructions will help guide you through the steps to make it a breeze. I hope you have fun and I will see you with another tutorial right after this. Peace out.
