How to draw an anime girl

In this drawing guide, we will tell you how to draw an anime girl. We know that you love this style of drawing, so we hope you enjoy this guide.


Step 1

Firstly we need to think about the character we are drawing. This is a thin teenage girl from high school. After that, we can reflect on these features of the figure in the stickman. The special features of our character are a rather large head, a static pose, and a wide pelvis combined with narrow shoulders.

Step 2

In this step, we will also perform some basic steps. First, we outline the lower border of the eyes using a horizontal line. Please note that this line is much lower than the conditional middle of the head. Also do not forget about the standard vertical line that divides the head into two equal parts.

Secondly, we will work a little with the body. We will connect the chest and pelvis with a pair of smooth elegant lines as in our sample. After that, we can connect the head and body with a narrow neck cylinder.

Step 3

There is something that we lack for a full-fledged silhouette, right? Sure. These are the limbs of our character. Let’s outline graceful arms and rounded legs. Use truncated cylinders that have a smooth narrowing down. Feet and hands look like small angular shapes.

Step 4

So we continue the guide on how to draw an anime girl. Add a few details to continue to create a cool anime-style drawing. In this step, we outline the large contours of the anime eye. We also outline the contours of the hairstyle. Use rough pointed lines. Remember to consult the guidelines from the second step.

Step 5

It’s time to work on the clothes, right? You can think of any clothes for your anime character, actually. If you want to make something similar to our sample, you can outline the contours of a small dress, long sleeves, and an acute-angle collar with a bow. Do not forget to outline the contours of stockings and small lapels of the distal parts of the sleeves.

Step 6

So we have a fully completed silhouette. This means that we can begin to work with the final details. We will do this from head to foot. Therefore, in this step, we will draw the final details of the face. Pay attention to the large, expressive anime eyes and small lines that indicate all the other features of the anime face.

Step 8

In this step, we will detail the hands of our heroine. Do not forget that we are drawing a schoolgirl, so these should be very small hands. Pay attention to different finger sizes. Thumbs should be pressed to the index fingers. Do not forget to read our special guide on how to draw anime hands. It will greatly facilitate this difficult step.

Step 9

Repeat the steps from the previous step only with the pelvic region and lower limbs. Repeat the steps from the previous step only with the pelvic region and lower limbs. So we draw the final version of the clothes – in our case, this is a skirt, high stockings, and shoes. Do not forget about important details, such as vertical pleats on the skirt and buckles on the front of the shoes.

Step 10

Add some shadows. Light shadows are a great way to add completeness and realism to your drawing. To draw a shadow, use a light single-layer hatching. You can first outline the boundaries of the area to be shaded, and then cover it with hatching.
