How To Draw Misa Amane

Step 1.

This first step will show you how to draw the beginning guidelines and circle shapes of Misa. Starting at the top draw an egg shape for the head with two curled lines coming from the sides, and sketch in the facial guidelines as well. Next draw the shape of her torso which is basically box shaped. Then draw the shape of her skirt as shown above. After all the shapes are drawn out, use the image as a guide for the guidelines.

Step 2.

Here in step 2 what you will be doing is sketching out her face, hair, and sketching in the details of her short ruffled mini skirt. Start this step by sketching in her bangs and pigtails. Now sketch in her innocent looking face by drawing the eyes, nose, and mouth. Move down a bit and draw the shoulder part of her puffy jacket and right arm. Now move down to the skirt and draw out the ruffle lines that are actually pleaded in. After the skirt is finished draw the outlines of her legs which are also her thigh high socks.

Step 3.

Here in step 3 all you will be doing is detailing Misa's hair by sketching in all the lines that separate the strands. Sketch in more detail to the eyes and draw out the left arm and hand. Finish the legs bu drawing the thighs and boots on the bottom. Her boots are Gothic looking with a slight heel. After you finish here move down to step 4.

Step 4.

And this is the last step.All you have to do here is lightly sketch in the puffy looking definition on the collar of her coat. Then draw in the death note. After you finish here, erase all the guidelines and circle shapes that you drew back in step 1. Move down to the next step when your image looks like the one above.

Step 5.

This is what your Misa Amane should look like when you are completely done. Easy right. Now all you have to do is color her in. You can even change the colors on her outfit if you choose to do so. That concludes this tutorial on how to draw Misa Amane step by step.

This is a tutorial on another Death Note character. Her name is Misa Amane, and she is one of my favorites on the show. Misa’s character in this Japanese anime series is very simple; she is a model, actress, and singer. Oh, she also has the biggest crush a girl could have on Light Yagami. Now remember, Light Yagami is the one that has the Death Note in his possession, and even though he uses that black notebook to wipe out the scum of the earth, she finds his charm overwhelming. Misa has a wide variety of fashion sense; you often see her character in different outfits at times. Her style in clothing is along the dark gothic looking side, some may call her a “Gothic Lolita”. Misa Amane also refers to herself as a third person, like when she likes or thinks about something for example she would say “Misa likes this” or “Misa thinks that would work”. But don’t be fooled by her common appearance, behind those cute clothes and innocent looking eyes, lies a very dangerous reserve of power that comes from this petit young lady. Now the reason why she obtains this dangerous mass of power is because Rem, the female partner to Light’s Death God companion Ryuk, had the idea to give Misa a piece of the action by handing her a Death Note and the gift of “Shinigami eyes”. This powerful gift allows Misa the ability to perceive the destined lifespan of another human. Misa may think that by having these powers she can in some way attract Light toward her, well she is right Light is attracted to her but not the she wants. Light Yagami uses Misa as a tool and keeps her by his side for his own megalomaniacal ends. Misa has a deep immense love for this young man, and all though she may think that there is a chance for the two, the truth is the love is only one sided. This tutorial shows you "how to draw Misa Amane", step by step. The details and instructions make this tutorial a breeze to learn. I hope you have fun with this one I know I did. By the way, I used my “plastic model” of Misa that I bought online for a good penny. Anyways have fun ya’ll.
