How to Draw Manga Bodies

Step 1.

There is three different body positions that you will be drawing today. You can choose to draw all three, or you can pick one out of the bunch. Start with three circle shapes for your manga bodies that you will be drawing and add the facial guidelines. Next draw the torso shapes for all poses you see here. Once that is done you will then draw a connecting line that comes from the torso, to the hips or pelvic area that you will draw next. Lastly draw all the limb guidelines as well as the shapes for the hands and feet.

Step 2.

Start sketching out the shapes of the manga models as you see here and then sketch in their eyes and bangs for their hair styles.

Step 3.

You will pretty much finish off the hair styles of your manga body models and then draw in the eyeballs and pupils for each character you see here. Sketch out the ears and mouths on the models as well.

Step 4.

Now you will start sketching out the torso shapes of your manga bodies starting with the shoulders and arms. Once that is done you can draw the shapes of the breasts as you see here and add some neck definition by sketching in their collar bone lines.

Step 5.

You are almost done with this lesson and so far I think you are doing great. Continue to sketch out the torso's by drawing the shape of the manga bodies waist and hips. Once that is done draw more shape to the arms and add some definition to the belly by adding a navel hole.

Step 6.

Finish off the arms and hands and then start sketching out the manga bodies thighs and or upper part of the leg. As you can see by the drawing here, these ladies have long slender legs.

Step 7.

Now for your final drawing step you will finish drawing the legs and then draw the feet including toes and all. Erase all the visible guidelines that you drew in step one to clean up your drawing so it looks nice and neat.

Step 8.

When you are done you will end up with three manga girls that are ready and willing for you to dress them and use them in your next manga comic. I hope you had fun, and i hope you learned something new with this tutorial that showed you "how to draw manga bodies step by step".
