Hey guys, Dawn here with another lesson on anime. I had lots of fun drawing this particular style due to my interest in bananas. I've seen my recent anime face tutorial shot up into the top 50 pretty quick. I wanted to please the audience with another anime girl, in a more interesting aspect. When you draw anime, you've got to realize that the features and the head depend greatly on size, which depicts them from regular cartoon characters. Make sure you keep the eyes large and galaxy to imply a new style. I've had SO much fun designing this girl, so I hope you will too! Keep in check for more anime tutorials I'll post in the future.

STEP 4.

Next, let's work on the hairstyle, which at first seems really complex but it's actually easy. Draw the outer shapes for each bang of hair, then proceed onto the sketchy bangs. Take your time, you don't want to rush yourself doing things. Make sure the bangs look razor cut to accentuate the face.

You will now start drawing out the shape of her neck, and then draw out the shoulders which should be rather petite. Begin the lining process of her large breasts, and then sketch some of her arms.

STEP 8.

Let's complete the arm holding the banana. First draw the rest of the bicep and move onto the forearm, working your way up to drawing the entire hand. Keep in mind, the circle is to help aid you the shape of the banana, or having the fingers clutching onto something invisibly.

STEP 9.

Now that almost all of her body is drawn out, you can now get busy drawing the half eaten banana she is holding in her hand. Notice the design of the real banana is the same as her top.

STEP 11.

Now add all the detailing to the banana designed top, as well as the banana too. Sketch in some details on her body by adding the neck notch. Erase all the lines and shapes as well as mistakes to clean up the drawing and prepare her for color.
