In this tutorial you will find very detailed step by step illustrations and instructions on how to draw a female character in the anime and manga style.

Below is an explanation of how to draw an anime girl from the front and side views.

For drawing a female anime character in three quarter view you can see:

Step 1 – Draw the Overall Shape of the Female Body

One of the most important thing to keep in mind when drawing the full figure is the proportions or the relation of one body part to another. Everything has to be the right size or your character will look odd.

Certain styles may deliberately exaggerate certain proportions (like the big anime eyes for example) there are still rules to follow when drawing.

For the front view of the girl you should start by drawing a vertical line. This will help you make both sides of the figure more even. If you are drawing two views at once you can add the horizontal lines to make sure that the different body parts match up in both views.

Drawing both views at once is a good exercise. If you are good at drawing one particular body part in one view but not so much in another this can help you.

Drawing the Head

Start by drawing the head without any of the small details. In the front view you can draw a circle to help you get the shape of the top of the head. In the side view it will be a slight oval.

Drawing the Body

If we were doing a more realistic looking style the body would be about as wide as two heads side by side (not including the hair). But since we are drawing anime draw the head slightly bigger than that so the body will be smaller in comparison.

The shape of the body (when drawing the front view) should be similar to an hourglass.

You can draw some small circles to help you get the shape of the shoulders. Later on we will also draw these to indicate joints.

Drawing the Arms

Draw the arms starting from the shoulders and work your way down. You can draw circles to indicate the position of the joints.

For the proportions and a detailed breakdown of drawing the arms see:

Drawing the Legs

The legs should be about half the length of the entire body.

The feet (when drawing the side view) should be about as long as the distance from the wrists to the elbow.

For more on drawing the legs see:

You may notice that in the front view the feet go slightly past the bottom vertical alignment line. This is NOT a mistake. This is because if we rotate the person on the spot her feet would reach closer towards the viewer in the front view than in the side view.

Looking at the Perspective Drawing Tutorial for Beginners and How it Relates to Anime may give you some insight into this.

Step 2 – Clean Up Your Drawing

Clean up your drawing after you have established the basic shape of the body. You can also add in some of the smaller details such as the neck collar bones and the a hint of the knees in the front view.

Step 3 – Draw the Details

Drawn out draw in the details such as the hair and various facial features.

We will not go into the details of drawing those in this tutorial as they are already covered in other tutorial on this website. You can refer to the following for more information:

Step 4 – Draw the Clothes

For the clothes we will draw a few basic items. We will draw a shirt, shorts and socks.

If you would like to draw shoes see:

Since these type of clothes are fairly thin and tight it will follow the overall outline and shape of the body.

Start by drawing some lines that indicate each item of clothing. Draw these lines in smooth curves that hug the shape of the body. (For example the top of the socks should not simply be a straight line but a curve to show that the fabric of the socks actually wraps around the leg)

You can also add some very basic small folds to make the clothes look a little more natural.

Step 5 – Add Color & Shading

Sketch

For the finishing touches add some basic color and shading.

In this tutorial we will draw as if our character is standing in fairly normal lighting conditions either outside or indoors and facing towards the light source that is up above her.

Any part of the body that is less exposed to light will be darker.

In this case the you can add some as follows:

  • Neck/shoulder area
  • Inner parts of the legs (front view)
  • Inner sides of arms (front view)
  • Below the knees
  • Back of the legs (side view)

Conclusion

There is a lot keep track of when drawing a full body of an anime character. You have to make sure to have good proportions while still maintaining the style. Fortunately most common anime style bodies are still somewhat similar to real bodies so you can look at photos of real people if you need some reference material.

This step by step tutorial shows how to draw a cute anime girl with an explanation of proportions that make a female character look “cute” as well as illustrated examples.

Anime characters are usually drawn “cute” by default (though some styles are more serious) but you can tweak the proportions and positioning of the facial features in certain ways (explained in the steps below) to make a character look more cute even by anime standards.

It should also be noted that by making a character look cuter you will also usually automatically make them look younger. Though sometimes even adult characters are still drawn this way.

And

Step 1 – Drawing a Cute Anime Girl’s Head

Cute looking anime characters usually have bigger heads and foreheads with smaller chins.

For the front view start by drawing an oval for the top of the head and to that add the bottom half of the face. The bottom part of the face should narrows significantly as it goes down.

For the side view once again start with the oval of the top of the head an onto that draw the nose/jaw area. Leave out the details such as the lips for later steps.

At this stage simply estimate the placement of the nose for the side view (covered in Step 3).

Step 2 – Place and Draw the Eyes & Eyebrows

For a cuter look place the eyes even lower down than normal. Also make sure that you draw the eyes big and tall.

In this case we will actually place the eyes by first placing the eyebrows. To do this draw a horizontal line exactly through the middle of the head and draw the bottom of the eyebrows touching this line. Keep in mind that the eyes can move depending on the characters facial expression. This placement is for eyebrows in their natural position.

You can draw a hint of the eyelids directly on this line and the eyebrows slightly below that.

Step 3 – Placing & Drawing the Nose

Draw the nose between the line through the middle of the face and the bottom of the chin.

For more on drawing anime noses see:

Step 4 – Drawing & Placing the Ears

The ears will be covered by hair in later steps but we will go over placing them in case you want to draw a different hairstyle.

Place the ears between the top of the halfway point between the top of the eyes and the chin.

Step 5 – Placing & Drawing the Mouth

To place the mouth draw it exactly between the nose and the chin.

For a cute look make sure to draw a small mouth. You can also draw a little break inside the mouth line.

Step 6 – Drawing Cheeks & Blush

To give the character an even cuter (but also more childish) appearance add some blush on the cheeks. For the line drawing version you can do this by drawing some angled lines.

Step 7 – Drawing the Hair

For a cute looking character you can make the hair fairly “puffy” drawing it a good distance away from the head.

For more on drawing anime hair you can see:

You may notice that there are also some collar bones and clothes added in this step. For more on drawing these you can see:

Step 8 – Coloring the Character

You can pretty much color a cute character character same as you would any other one.

Simply fill in each area with the appropriate color and add some basic shading afterwards.

Add some shading on the head as there will usually be a shadow there cast by the head and some shadows on the face cast by the hair.

You can also add some very light red/pink to the blush on the cheeks.

Conclusion

As this tutorial was for a “cute” looking anime character the proportions were slightly different than the ones recommended in some other tutorials here on AnimeOutline. Please keep in mind that while these proportion are based on the general trends for cute looking anime characters there is no one clear set of guide lines that will fit all of them. You can always experiment with different proportions and see what you get.
