I guess I got some of the easy stuff out of the way, now it’s time to learn how to draw some fun stuff anime style. There is a certain part of anime that some people have troubles creating and for me this was a big problem area for some time. Today I am going to do my best to show you guys "how to draw anime profiles", step by step and to be honest with you, it’s not going to be as hard as you think it might be. This is a really easy to follow tutorial that I think you will have fun with and just because you might be a novice artist, there is no reason why you should shy away from this lesson. Drawing profiles in any type of character all have different types of complexity especially when you are creating human like profiles. Since anime and manga style is non-realistic, it’s going to be easier to recreate. I’m going to leave this description for now, but I will return later. While you wait for me to come back to ya’ll have fun learning how to draw anime profiles, and be sure stick around because there is still one more tutorial that is going up in a bit. Peace out people and enjoy the drawing day!
