Animes - How to Draw Anime in 13 Simple Steps - Full Official Method
Animes to learn how to draw anime

I know that you want to draw thousands of characters of Animes, make your drawings without looking at images and such…

However, the first step of all, the basis for really learning how to draw anime is to take it easy…

Above all, also, never give up…

Know that there is no magic formula to draw anime characters, there is study and dedication…

Are you willing? Then let’s get started!

The First Step is the most basic thing for those who are starting or want to evolve their anime or manga designs

This step consists in you choosing your reference animals, yes, that’s right, choose your favorite animals to be inspired…

When I started, I chose three animals that had simple traits and not many details

It was them:

  1. Naruto
  2. Dragon Ball
  3. Nanatsu No Taizai

Nanatsu No Taizai has many characters that are full of details, but some are as simple as peppa pig…

However, it is not obligatory to choose the same animals that I chose to inspire me, it goes from person to person…

Therefore, my advice is that you choose only Animes that suits you…

It does not matter the quantity at the moment.

If you don’t know many animes or have no idea which to choose, click on the link below and see a list of good animes to be inspired and watch…

It’s no secret that all animals have aspects and characteristics in general, different from each other…

So, if you really want to learn how to draw anime, you will have to learn how to classify the difference of each anime you draw…

For example, one day I decided to make two drawings of Naruto, Deidara and Madara

As much as they are of the same anime, they have different characteristics, right?

However, the traits of each character in Naruto anime are exactly the same!

That is, simple traces composed of light shadows, no exaggerations, simple physiognomy, etc.

I know many people who leave this step behind and end up failing when they go drawing without using images as reference…I know many people who leave this step behind and end up failing when they go drawing without using images as reference…

Therefore, it is your obligation to be an observer from today!

If you choose to focus on just one anime and draw several characters of it, be observant and know how to spread the differences between each character…

Therefore, it works as a practice of studying the character, and you will not have problems in the future

Observe things like face shape, style, facial expressions, character physics, eye shape, etc.

Mount Your Facial Structure – How To Draw Anime

After having done all the steps above, it’s time to get your hands on the dough and start drawing!

There is a structure used to draw Anime and Manga, and without this structure, your drawing can come out half “ridiculous”.

It is a basic structure, but universal, when it comes to anime and manga, everyone uses this structure…

Lucky for you, I will present you right now the Step by Step to assemble this structure

But,for that,I need you to pay a lot of attention to each part to be presented,and if you have any doubts,look for my Instagram @comodenharanime.com.br or leave your comment here and I will answer you soon!

Well, not to be alone in theory, take your pencil and a sheet, you don’t need an eraser!

I will present you the exact structure to draw any anime character!

Anime Drawing Head – How to Draw Anime

Without further additions let’s go straight to what really matters, the construction of the facial structure of the anime or manga drawing

This construction will be based on 13 Super Simple steps, from absolute zero to the completion of the drawing…

Without a doubt, this is a complete step by step of how to draw anime.

For a better understanding, I made the illustrations that will be shown myself, I made them in a super simple way so that you understand that you don’t need thousands of materials to make a good drawing…

However, I didn’t finish mine, it’s up to you!

Step 01 – Make a Circle

The first step of this tutorial to learn how to draw anime is simple…

Make a circle on your sheet, as in the image below:

Primeiro Passo - How to Draw Anime in 13 Simple Steps - Full Official Method

Step 02 – Vertical Line

Make a straight line in the middle of the circle, as in the image below:

Segundo Passo - How to Draw Anime in 13 Simple Steps - Full Official Method

Step 03 – Horizontal Line

Again, make another straight line in the middle of the circle, but this time it is a horizontal line…

Terceiro Passo - How to Draw Anime in 13 Simple Steps - Full Official Method

Step 04 – Eye Line

It’s time to make the eye line of your anime character, it’s very simple…

Just make another straight line horizontally, however, below the one you had already made…

Of course, respecting the space of the eyes, this varies a lot from character to character

See the image below:

Quarto Passo - How to Draw Anime in 13 Simple Steps - Full Official Method

Step 05 – Base Line

I know you’re curious to see how it will turn out, but, take it easy…

It’s time to make another line in the horizontal, but in the surroundings of the circle, where the vertical line crosses it…

See the image below:

Quinto Passo - How to Draw Anime in 13 Simple Steps - Full Official Method

Step 06 – Marking

You must have noticed that there was a big gap between the last two lines on the horizontal…

Now, with your fingers you will measure this space and add once more a line or a point to make a mark but down…

Pay close attention to this image, it has a dot, not a dash, observe below:

Step 07 – Eye Location

Well, now its structure is almost ready…

What to do now? Simple, you can now start to shape the face of your anime character…

However, in this tutorial I started in a different way hehe…

Follow the dance with me, now you will make the marking of the eyes, as in the image below:

Setimo Passo - How to Draw Anime in 13 Simple Steps - Full Official Method

Step 08 – Drawing the Nose

Now all you have to do is mark the nose of your anime character…

Remembering that there is no shape of nose, eyes, mouth, ears, universal…

All this varies from Anime to Anime, from Manga to Manga…

See the image below as an example:

Oitavo Passo - How to Draw Anime in 13 Simple Steps - Full Official Method

Step 09 – Face Formation

Now we will do what we should have done first in our facial structure

The shape of your anime character’s face is simple and easy to make this formation…

Remembering again, face formats also vary, there is no universal format (depending on the anime)

For example, see the image below:

Nono Passo - How to Draw Anime in 13 Simple Steps - Full Official Method

Step 10 – Drawing the Mouth of the Anime Character

This step is the simplest and also the fastest of all…

At this very moment, you just need to make the mouth of your anime character…

However, as said before, the formats will never be universal depending on the anime, so there is no need to copy from my…

It is up to you to copy or not, see the image below:

Step 11 – Drawing the Eyes of an Anime Character

This step requires a bit of your attention, because now, you will draw the eyes of your character…

Where? In the eye mark you made with me in the initial steps…

Above all, do not ignore this step and do it with will, this step is important for the eyes of your character not to come out misaligned, strange, ugly, etc.

My character has only one eye, so don’t get attached to that detail hehe…

See the image below:

Step 12 – Drawing the Ears

After all these steps, it’s time to go a little further

This time, you will make the ears of your character…

The position of the ear of some characters are strange, so, don’t miss some drawings that you see, they are not wrong, it is just a characteristic of the character…

Most ears start from the height of the nose and go up to the eyebrows or a little more to…

Take as an example the image below:

Step 13 – Draw the Hair

We have reached the semi-final of the structuring of the face of your anime character…

Now, to complete, just draw the hair of your anime character…

Many people have a lot of difficulty in this part, the only way to overcome all this trauma is to study the character you want to draw

In the case of the character I’m drawing,it doesn’t exist,I’m doing it just to teach you the right structure!

However, if I were drawing Naruto, for example, I would carefully observe how his hair lines are, if it has fallen, where it begins, where it ends and height…

But, as everything varies from anime to anime and character to character, it stays in your hands…

Notice that I left my character’s two ears appearing, he only has one eye and his hair hides half of his face…

This is a serious mistake I made just to warn you! If it’s not characteristic of your anime character, then it’s a serious mistake!

Although it got cute, right? hehe…

See the image below as an example:

Finalize and Delete the Sketch

Done all this construction process to learn how to draw anime, came the best part of it all…

Which basically consists in you finish your drawing with Pens for drawings ( Aquelas Pretas – Não divulga marca aqui )

Or with the material you prefer, done the finishing, just erase all the sketch done, so that the drawing is clean…

Use a soft and clean rubber, so as not to hurt your drawing, tear the sheet and any kind of bad that happens with a designer haha…

Following all these steps, your drawing will be ready, unless you want to give that naughty improvement…

After finishing your drawing, send to my Instagram @eu.antonioensino

or in my email: antoniosouza@comodesenharanime.com.br

That I will show your drawing to other people to see that they can too!

Fine Tips On How To Draw Anime

Practice Every Day

Drawing is like talking in another language, if you don’t practice every day, you don’t evolve…

The mistake of most advanced or beginner designers is to think that they will learn some magic formula that will make them draw anything…

There is a magic formula that does that, and it is called Dedication…

If you are not willing to draw at least 30min per day,then you are wasting your time with drawing!

Practice Every Day, it’s essential!

Use Images as Reference

Many people complain, but even I, to start drawing without looking at images, I had to look at images…

There is no such thing as drawing without seeing, you need to see the image, study the character, draw it several times…

Only this way, you will be able to draw it without the need for images, that’s how it works…

I am being honest with you ^^

So if you really want to learn how to draw anime, use images as reference

Focus on One Character Per Anime

This is a tip I give to those who are having a lot of difficulties with their drawings…

In the beginning, I also had a lot of difficulty, and I simply chose three animes, and one character from each anime to train

Result? I can draw Deidara, Meliodas and Madara in less than 5 minutes without observing images rsrs…

Of course I draw several other characters now, but I started with these three…

However, this is just an optional tip, it doesn’t mean you need to do the same thing I did!

Do Exercises

You should do daily exercises to improve your traits as anime/manga designer or any other style…

What kind of exercise?

What I and most of us do, is a very simple and even silly exercise

You take a sheet of paper,and on this sheet of paper you will keep making several circles,until you are able to make a perfect circle without the need of tools.

Like, for example, a glass…

Another type of optional training consists in you doing the same process

However, instead of making circles, you will make lines on the sheet, straight and crooked lines, vertical, horizontal, diagonal, curved and so on.

Doing exercises is a big step in this journey of how to draw anime.

Avoid Using Rubber While Practicing

Many beginner designers don’t know, but rubber is their worst enemy…

It simply gives you the security that you can make mistakes that nothing will happen, that is, it makes you dependent on it…

So, avoid using rubber while practicing, it will help you a lot to evolve your designs and strokes.

Do Not Use Drawing Tools

The worst mistake of those who want to learn how to draw anime is this…

You should avoid as much as possible using tools that help you develop your designs

For example, Cups, Rulers, Compasses and all kinds of tools that make your work easier…

When you don’t use these tools, you develop skills that those who use them will never get

That is simply, to be able to develop a design of superior quality to others without the aid of any tool!

Be More Observer

If you want to learn how to draw anime, the more you observe, the more things you will know…

It is an artist’s duty to have critical and observant eyes for anything!

Well, what should you observe, then?

Simply the differences between each anime style, each character and the author’s trace style…

This will bring you inspiration…

And having someone to inspire your traits will help you evolve a lot!

Therefore, be more observant.
