Drawing women is as you know a very challenging thing to tackle especially when you are trying to draw a female figure in a pose. Today, I am going to try and teach you an easy way to "draw an anime woman", step by step. I even made sure to sketch this version of an anime woman in a pose so you can get a good idea on how to create a figure in this state. The overall drawing should be simple to tackle and even replicate. In total she took me about two hours to draw out, and another hour to color and shade in. Turning the drawing into a tutorial took me another thirty five minutes which is not that bad, but still lengthy. One of the things I like about this anime woman is her clothes, and her pretty long, straight brown colored hair. Instead of drawing shoes, I chose to leave her barefoot with just some socks. She is in a sitting position which makes her in a perfect pose to rest on a couch or rest on the floor or any other surface. I guess that's about it for this tutorial description except you will be following thirteen steps so be prepared to stay for at least thirty minutes as you tackle this tutorial on "how to draw an anime woman". I will be back with some other fun stuff for you guys to draw so stick around gang, the fun is just beginning.

Start by making some shapes, one for her head, and the other for her torso. When that is done draw out the facial guidelines, and then the guidelines for the right arm and hand.

Continue to sketch out her face by drawing out more of her eyes including the actual eyeballs themselves. Next, sketch in her nose, and anime style mouth. Be sure to thicken the lining in the corner of her eyes so they are nice and bold.

STEP 5.

Okay. lets have some real fun now that the face is all taken care of. You can now start sketching out her hairstyle and for this step you can choose any style you want. For me, I thought long straight hair would look good on her. If you are going to draw this style, begin bu drawing out the bangs that curl on her face, and then draw in some of the length to her hair. Notice how I made the hair strands framing her face chunky.
