In this section, you will learn how to draw manga characters using an easy to follow step-by-step tutorial.
You will see that drawing a manga character is not so difficult if you already know how to draw cartoon people. So just take your favorite pencil and a piece of paper and get ready to start this manga tutorial right now!
The first thing you need to do is to sketch the shape of your character. Don't hesitate to draw all parts of it.
Next, you can start to draw the head of your character. Notice that the outline is irregular on the side of the head. Most manga characters also have a very narrow chin. So you might want to make one tiny and edgy.
Next, you can draw the eyes and the eyebrows. The eyes need to be big and round. Notice the little curve on the bottom of the eye. Manga characters usually have big pupils.
Then, you can draw the nose and the mouth using a simple line for each. Try to draw those lines as near as possible of the chin.
OK! Now it's time for the hair of your character. Just use your imagination! You can make them using a variety of triangles, like the character below.
Don't hesitate to be creative!
When the head is finished, you can start drawing the body by sketching the neck. Your character is starting to look good now!
The body is made of a simple square with round edges. When you're ready, you can add the arms and the hands. In this case, we don't see the fingers since the hands are partially hide by the body.
Finally, it's time to draw the legs and the feet of your manga character. The legs can be short and made with curves. The feet are also very delicate and simple.
If you wish, you can add some tones of gray to give more personality to your work! Voila! Enjoy your drawing!
