The team of Drawingforall.net set out to describe how to draw everything related to anime, and we believe that the first thing to learn is how to draw an anime body. That is, if you depict an anime person, then you definitely need to be able to draw an anime body. We have divided this sketching instruction on how to draw an anime body into nine simple stages and collected for you all the basic principles of sketching an anime body.
To properly depict an anime body, you first need to sketch the skeleton. The first thing to create is the head. Next, depict the spine, chest and pelvis. Finish the step outlining the limbs.
Draw a crosshair on the head for future details of the face. Next, we create a neck in the form of a cylinder and a torso, which should taper slightly at the waist.
With the help of simple geometric figures similar to cylinders add some volume on the limbs of our anime. With the help of balls create joints in the anime body drawing.
Let’s start adding the crucial details to the anime body drawing. Let’s begin with the head, sketching the features of the face using the crosshair on the face from the second stage.
Using smooth lines, gently connect the details and formulate the smooth outlines of the body. If you did everything right, then your anime body sketch should look like this at the fifth stage.
Using clear and dark lines, trace the details of the face as shown in the example of the artists of Drawingforall.net. Remove all unnecessary guidelines from the face with an eraser.
Now using clear and dark lines trace the torso and arms. Form the muscles and fingers as the Drawingforall.net artists did. Remove unwanted guidelines from the upper body.
Now do the same, but with the lower part of the anime body drawing. That is, we need to trace the legs, form muscles and toes, and complete the stage by removing all the remaining unnecessary guidelines.
Now with the help of hatching draw shadows so that your anime body drawing has a depth, roundness and mass. First, depict the outlines of the contours of the shadows and then paint over the shadows with the help of hatching.
In this instruction, the team of Drawingforall.net showed you how to draw an anime body. Now with the help of this guide you can depict absolutely any anime. You can add clothing items, change some details to vary your anime body drawing. So, we are looking forward to your wishes and comments about this and our other tutorials.
