Drawing an Anime Girl Face

Step 1.

Here is a quick look at the different poses that you can draw in your anime style girl face in. You can draw her in a profile pose, quarter pose, and then a head on pose with a full frontal of the face.

Step 2.

As I said before, these are the many different types of face shapes, ages, and styles that can also be determined when choosing the right face for your anime girl.

Step 3.

Along with the different face shapes, you also have a choice of drawing different styles of eyes for your anime girl. Here you can see the three different shapes I made for you guys as an example. You can choose to pick which suits your anime face best.

Step 4.

When it comes to coloring your anime girl's hair, it's important to remember that there are different steps to getting that sheen. The base color goes on first, then you lighten up the base color with some highlights.

Step 5.

To get the shine to the hair, you will add more highlighting and then some shading. The shading varies because you will be performing both light shading and dark shading.

Step 6.

You will start the actual lesson by drawing the guide for the face, head and neck.

Step 7.

Next, take those guides you made and begin sketching out the actual structure for your anime girl's face. Draw the nose and then proceed to step eight.

Step 8.

Utilize the facial guidelines to draw in the long or wide shapes of the eyes. If you chose a different eye style, then work with that. We will then draw the brows and mouth, then detail the eyes with some soft lashes and soft texture inside the iris'.

Step 9.

Now that the face is complete, you can now sketch out the hairstyle. I chose to go with long, wavy locks that are also styled in soft chunks. Be sure there are layers for her hair as well.

Step 10.

Draw in the shoulder and some of her arm before you label this drawing finished. Once that is done erase the mistakes and the guides.

Step 11.

Here is the line art. Now you can color her in. Notice I added the left shoulder and some of her chest. You will do the same thing. Add color and you're done.
