How to Draw an Anime Person

Step 1.

Begin with a head guide or shape like so, then sketch in the facial guidelines and shoulder guide.

Step 2.

Next, sketch in the definition of face like so, then draw a lid line for the headdress that this anime person is wearing.

Step 3.

Up next, draw the hand which is clutched up against his face like so. Notice that the fingers are curled in.

Step 4.

We will now draw in the face using the facial guidelines. Start with the thick lined eyes, then sketch in the nose and sinister smile for the mouth. Add the mask line that flows on the bridge of the nose as well.

Step 5.

We will now draw the top of the head which is also a covering for the head. This is a loose fitting fabric with a metal band on the forehead.

Step 6.

Let's work on getting the clothing drawn in. You can do this by sketching out the shawl and then the length of the sleeve. Add wrinkles and creases for the shawl or sleeve like so.

Step 7.

Up next, draw the entire shape of the body and then add a seam line that separates the waist from the bottom.

Step 8.

We will now sketch out the rest of the extravagant headdress like so. Notice how it resembles something from the Asian culture. I love the concept of this headdress and it was so fun to make/draw.

Step 9.

For the final step you will add detailing to the headdress like so. When that is done you can proceed to step ten where you will color in your art. But first you have to erase your mistakes.

Step 10.

That's it. You are all done. Now you can color in this drawing on an anime person.

Every once in a while I will do a lesson on a concept anime character and that is what you see here now in this lesson. Today I will show you how to draw an anime person, step by step. There is nothing special about this drawing, it's just something I conjured up a while ago. I found the art in one of my folders and figured it would make a good tutorial for those who like drawing anime concepts. Anyways, I don't know what else I can say just have fun with the lesson. I will be back soon so stick around. Peace out people and enjoy!
