How to Draw a Chibi Vampire

Step 1.

For the first step, we'll lay down the foundation with sort of a rounded rectangle for the head and some lines for positioning the body. Now, keep in mind when you are doing this, chibis are insanely out of proportion to normal humans. For this picture, Vikki is only a head and a half high. The structure lines are not entirely necessary if you don't want to use them.

Step 2.

Now, we simply flesh out the body and get the outline of the eyes and the mouth. (Chibis usually don't have noses or they are represented with a little bit of shading.)

Step 3.

Here we get in the details in the face with her exaggerated slit eyes and the tee-shirt. Be sure to make the shirt fabric separate from her body. When she is pulling her arms in like this, the shirt will tend to stay to its original shape so the sleeves will stick out a little.

Step 4.

In this step, we'll give our character some hair (which makes her look LOADS better,) add some cute little wings, a couple of cat-like tear ducts, and eyelashes to get that feminine touch. A note for the people out there who DON'T study bat wings in their spare time, (I guess I'm one of the few who DO.) they are very much like another set of arms with elongated fingers and webbing. Hope that little tidbit helps.

Step 5.

Now all that is left is a little detail on the hands, her studded bracelets, the vampire skull logo on her shirt, and the wing webbing. For the bracelets, since they are a little hard to see, you just draw the band, put a little point at each end, and draw x's for the individual studs facing you.

Step 6.

Finally, all that is left is a little coloring, and you're done! Hope you had a good time and learned a little bit about drawing. If you want to reply, I'd love to hear about your results!

Hello, everybody. (Hello Dr. Nick!) I will be showing you how to draw a chibi vampire today. This one in particular is my own character and her name is Vikki. (And if you couldn't tell, yes, she is a girl.) You can, however, change your picture however you like to make it unique. Before we start, I would like to warn you that throughout the tutorial, lines will be erased without me telling you, so you will just have to pay some attention. Now, without further ado, let's begin!
