How to Draw an Anime Couple

Step 1.

Start by drawing out the head shapes, and then draw in the body guidelines like so. Be sure the body lines are drawn in the pose they will be drawn in.

Step 2.

Now lets start sketching out the shapes of this couples faces. The female has her head in a downward position, and the male has his head close to her face. Once the faces are sketched out, begin drawing in the eyes or the beginning lining for their eyes. The females eyes should be drawn bolder or darker then the male.

Step 3.

Okay, let's get the faces finished in this step. Draw in the rest of the eyes and as you can see the girl has very big, sexy eyes. Color in the pupils, and then sketch out their noses, mouths, and then sketch in all the facial detailing associated with each character. For instance, sketch in those blush marks, and his scar over his lip. Also, don't forget to draw in the eyebrows as well.

Step 4.

My favorite part. Now I want you guys to start drawing out their hairstyles and my favorite style out of the two characters is the girl. I love the way her hair bangs fall on her forehead in a two part manner. It totally matches her facial expression. Next, once his hair is sketched out, draw in his neck, and shoulder.

Step 5.

Now guys, it's time to start drawing out the their bodies and clothes. Start by sketching out his shirt which has a high stiff collar. Next, draw in his shoulders, shirt sleeve, and then her right shoulder and shirt sleeve. You will also need to sketch out the arm that he has wrapped around her left side which is being used to embrace her. Draw in the hand but not completely.

Step 6.

Before you start drawing out her body, you will need to finish off his upper body first. Do this by drawing out the collar detailing, and then draw in his under-shirt collar line as well as the button straps. Next draw in the finger lines, and then draw in his ring that he is on his index finger. Now you can draw out her body starting with the rest of her shoulders, and sleeves. Next draw the arms, and then draw in her complete torso. Give her shirt a nice bottom line, and then add some detailing and definition as well. Don't forget to draw in her hands and fingers too.

Step 7.

Now you can draw out his other arm, and then draw in the rest of his swaying jacket. Be sure to add the under shirt, and then sketch out the creases in the jacket as well. For the girl, all you have to do is draw in some of the fold and crease lines on her t-shirt for added texture and definition.

Step 8.

For the last step, all you have to do is draw out the lower halves of their bodies. Do this with the female first because his left leg is actually hiding behind her right leg. Once the legs and his pants are drawn out, add some detailing and decoration to her panties. You can also choose to draw a skirt or a pair of pants on her if you want. Erase the lines and shapes that you drew in step one.

Step 9.

Now you are all done. Color in this anime couple and use them in your next character creation if you like. Thanks for joining me with this awesome tutorial on how to draw an anime couple.

I know you guys have been waiting for this drawing to be turned into a tutorial, and I’m sorry I took so long uploading it. I just had a lot to do before I could draw out the steps to submit this lesson on "how to draw an anime couple", step by step. It seems as though when ever I upload a tutorial on anime related stuff, everyone goes nuts. I’m thinking it’s because a majority of folks that come to Dragoart love anime and manga. Because of this fact, I’ve decided to make one anime lesson a day and each one will be different. This drawing of the anime couple is one of my favorite lessons I made so far. I love the way that they are holding each other because it seems really genuine. I decided to use a pose that a lot of us are familiar with because we too have been held like this at some point in our lives. I also wanted to dress her up a bit but I also didn’t want to take away from the pose. I drew her in a full t-shirt, but just kept her in a pair of cute panties. I often get comments on why my characters are hardly dressed sometimes and my answer to that is simple. When you are going out with someone and you have been for a while, some of your most intimate times together are when you’re just lounging around relaxing. Anyways, I do believe that you will fall in love with this tutorial on "how to draw an anime couple". You can choose to draw any hairstyle you wish on your anime figures, or keep them as is. I will be back in a bit, but for now enjoy and have fun with your drawing day!
