Description: Hey everyone! Sorry it's been a few days since my last tutorial. I ended up hurting my back, but after Christmas, I hope to be back in a groove! This is a neat little tutorial I whipped up on "How To Draw Chibi Anime." I hope to fill this tutorial full of lots of little hints to get everyone on their way to drawing their own chibi anime characters! I even included a little tutorial on how to draw my pre-drawn anime character. I hope you all enjoy!
Description: The basics of a chibi are fairly simple to grasp. It's mostly composed of angles and circles. To start drawing your own chibi anime character, You can start with any number of different poses that you can easily whip up by drawing the angled chibi frame. Here are a few to give you an idea of how it's done!
Description: Chibi anime characters can come in many different shapes and sizes, some small, some tall, but most all of them have a very similar frame to them. If you plan on making larger feet and hands, you can try adding triangles to the ends of the hands and feet lines to help guide you through the width that you would prefer.
Description: As you build the body, keep the frame in mind so you can see any major flaws. It's easier to see if your proportions are off with the basic wire frame because there is less to it. Drawing out your chibi anime body is as simple as this!
Description: Drawing out a chibi head just a simple step away from modifying the circle of the frame. In the upper left, you can see I have a circle and just added the basic anime pointed chin to it. Now you have your chibi head! After that you can choose from a variety of cute anime faces or expressions! I've drawn out several so you can get an idea of what you may want your chibi to look like.
Description: Now we can go ahead and draw in her cute playful body. Be sure to not give her any breasts. Most anime chibi bodies are very genderless. You can also use this tutorial up to this point to draw a boy if you would like. But lets continue on with the chibi anime girl.
Description: I love the chibi anime school girl look, so lets go ahead and draw her with a traditional school uniform. Start with the top and make sure the sleeves are a bit flared. Add a slight wave to the bottom of her shirt to make it look like it is also caught up in the wind.
Description: Now you can draw in the lower half. Draw in a sectioned skirt that is flowing towards the direction her hair is flowing. Try drawing each panel individually and it will help. Draw in some knee socks and shoes, and the hint of hidden leg beneath her skirt.
