How To Draw Anime: 50+ Free Step-By-Step Tutorials On The Anime & Manga Art Style

ResourcesWritten by Claire HeginbothamDisclosure: This post may contain affiliate links. That means if you buy something we get a small commission at no extra cost to you(learn more)

If you love anime & manga then of course you’d wanna draw it.

Naruto’s storyline was terrific; One Piece has incredible fight scenes and Studio Ghibli tugs at your heartstrings harder than Hollywood’s ‘The Notebook’.

Don’t get confused by the terminology though.

Simply put, manga is the comic book and anime is the actual animated content(learn more about the differences here). For artists looking to learn the style there is no major difference.

Manga characters have very unique features unlike any other cartoon.

The eyes and head are enlarged, the facial features are simplified, and the backgrounds are often highly detailed. If you’ve watched enough anime or read enough manga the style should be ingrained into your memory.

In the past we covered a series of tutorials on chibi drawing but this comprehensive list of videos will teach you how to draw in the manga art style from beginning to end—even if you have zero drawing experience.

To get the most out of each video I suggest watching it through once(I watch at 1.5x speed) and then going back to the start and drawing along.

When it comes to drawing practice really does make perfect. So bookmark this page because you are going to need it later! It takes anywhere from a few days to a few years to master the anime art style so just keep practicing and never give up!

Ultimate Guide on How to Draw
Manga Eyes

Luckily, you’re not alone.

Manga character’s eyes are one of, if not the hardest part of the face to master. Eyes are where most of someone’s emotion is expressed and when drawn well, an artist can create several layers of depth for a character. Based on the style you use, you can distinguish between kindness, malice, sadness, joy, and basically any other human emotion, all without any corresponding dialog.

Manga eyes

In other words, eyes are super important in manga and something you’ll want to work on getting better at drawing.

The following are some tips you can use to improve your eye drawing skills.

Ladies First

It probably goes without saying that male eyes and female eyes differ quite a bit, especially in manga. Female characters tend to have larger eyes, longer lashes, and more of shine (we’ll get to this later) than males do.

Female manga eyes

Since there’s more to female eyes, we’ll start there for this tutorial.

1. First, you’ll want to start with the eyelids and eyelashes. Draw a thick, arched line in the shape you want for the top of the eye, and then add however many lashes you’d like for this character. Do the same for the bottom eyelid, but not quite as wide. Remember to keep the top lashes fairly long and curved towards the outside of the face.

* Side note: decide how feminine you want this character to look The more eyelashes and the longer they are, the more feminine she will appear. Also, don’t just make a series of thin lines to represent lashes; they should be drawn in segments, almost the same way manga hair is done. It might be best to look at an image for reference.

Now for the main part of the eye - draw a large oval under the arch you just made, about the same width. You can decide how open the eyes should be based on the expression you’re going for. Do you want her to look surprised? Wide-open eyes will do the trick. How about mad? Narrow and coming to a point works best for showing anger.

Next you’ll want to add the pupil and iris (colored portion). Inside the first oval, make a slightly smaller oval, then an even smaller oval inside that one. The smallest oval (the pupil) should be colored in completely black.

Something very characteristic of anime and manga eyes are the small circles added to represent light reflection and glare. These are typically drawn covering a portion of the pupil and iris, and are left uncolored.

Now you should be left with something that looks like (you guessed it) an eye. Finish up by adding appropriate shading, and then add whatever color you’d like to the iris.

But wait, there’s something missing here. Eyebrows!

Since this is a female character, eyebrows are typically done by drawing a thicker arched line above the eye, contouring to the overall shape of the top lid. Again, here is where you as an artist get to be creative with the type of emotion you want to display. Depending on angle and thickness, you can portray various emotions. Play around with some positioning to see what works best for you.

Now the Guys

So, you should have a pretty good understanding of how to create a female manga character’s eyes. While there are literally thousands of variants, the above tutorial should help with the basics.

Male manga eyes

Male character’s eyes, while often just as expressive, can be a bit easier to draw. For starters, they’re usually smaller and don’t require as much detail.

Let’s get started. Go ahead and draw an arch for your top eyelid, but make it longer and with less of a curve. Do the same for the bottom eyelid but again, not quite as wide. The lids should come to a bit of a point on the outside and on the inside they should come close, but never touch.

From here you will create the eyeball. Imagine a full circle behind the eyelids you drew. Only small, curved areas are going to appear on both the left and right side while the rest is hidden (look in the mirror to get a visual for this).

Inside, you will do the same as you did on the female eye. Draw a small circle (covered slightly by the lids on the top and bottom) to represent the iris, then an even smaller circle for the pupil. Again, color the pupil black, and add a couple small circles for light reflection.

An eye

Hey, look at that. It looks like an eye.

Add some shading and whichever color you’d like for the iris, then draw some masculine eyebrows above the top lid. For male characters, brows are usually thicker, straighter, and come to a point on both ends. Like before, play around with the position to see how it evokes different emotions.

That Wasn’t So Bad

There you have it. That is the basic idea for manga character’s eyes. By no means do you have to stick with all of these rules. The fun about drawing is that everything is entirely up to your imagination. Try out a bunch of different styles and see what you like best.

DRAWING FULL BODY PROPORTIONS FOR WOMEN IN ANIME MANGA

Well, just as its important to be able to draw someone from the front, you may also wish to draw them from behind. In which case, it helps to know how to actually draw someone's behind. I wasn't going to add this, but since many anime girls are draw in skin tight suits or swimsuits, it's kind of important;  just be careful how you make the legs connect to the rest of the body.

All right, now that we've gone over the major areas in detail, lets put them all together and make a full body pose. When drawing your subject, you can either begin with the prelimiary ovals and circles, or you can go straight to the final draft, whichever you are most comforable with. If you are using circles and ovals, then you will notice that the main body (torso and pelvis) are composed of two basic shapes, both of which curve inwards towards the stomach. I'm not going to go over these a lot, because they have been well documented in other figure drawing tutorials. Make sure that both of these shapes, as well as the head, are aligned along a central guideline (as shown). This guideline is pretty much the spine of the character, and will determine the pose she is going to be in. Notice here that the center line curves to the left a little on the pelvis; this is because her weight is shifted and her left hip sticks out slightly (which makes the pose a little more interesting than if her weight is evenly balanced). The body can be equally divided in half as shown by the red guidelines. You can use that as a general reference when determining how long the legs should be in proportion to the rest of the body, but often times in anime the length of the legs is exaggerated, for both males and females, and it looks just fine.

When drawing the midsection, remember to try to keep the hourglass figure shape. Female anime characters will generally have thin shoulders, a thin stomach, and a somewhat round waist. Be careful to make the curves look natural, unless you are really good at figure drawing and can exaggerate the proportions.

Here is a similar pose, this time shown at a side angle. I have found side views to be difficult, since I had a hard time finding decent reference pictures. Notice that the body is composed of the same basic shapes, except the shapes have been rotated around. One of the things you need to consider when drawing from this angle is the shape of the upper torso. It isn't shown very well here, but as you come straight down from the neck, the chest will stick out slightly at a sharp angle as you come to the collarbone. After that point, the torso is drawn at a smooth diagonal until you reach the hemisphere shape of the breasts (remember that they are half spheres; don't draw them like beach balls!) Beneath that, the torso continues to protrude outwards slightly until it reaches the bottom of what would be the ribcage (its a little over one headlength down from the shoulders). After the ribcage, curve back inwards a little for the stomach. Other things to look out for are the shape of the legs (the thighs round out in front, and are flatter in back, while the lower legs are just the opposite) and the subject's behind (make sure you don't exaggerate it too much).

For the final pose of this tutorial, here is an example of someone drawn from behind (which you may actually need to draw at one point, especially if you are going to do manga). Just as before, the subject can be equally divided in half. Things to look out for at this angle include the neck; it connects up into the skull, and should obscure part of the face. The midsection should be somewhat hourglass shaped, but again, don't overexaggerate the curve unless you really know your anatomy (you have to know the basics before you can start bending the rules). Don't overdefine the lines on the behind, since there's little reason to do so. Be careful when drawing the arms; from the back, the elbows should be more prominent than usual. Check out the section on arms for more information.

That concludes the female figure drawing tutorial. I hope this gives you an understanding of basic anatomy, and helps you out when drawing full body subjects.

Now discussing:

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.

How to draw an anime girl step by step front and side view

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:

How to Draw an Anime School Girl in 6 Steps

Step 1 – Draw the Overall Shape of the Female Body

Anime girl entire body structure front and side view

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

Anime girl head structure front and side view

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.

For more on drawing anime heads and faces see:

Drawing the Body

Anime girl body structure front and side view

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

Anime girl arm structure front and side view

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:

How to Draw Anime & Manga Arms Tutorial

Drawing the Legs

Anime girl leg structure front and side view

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:

How to Draw Female Anime Legs Tutorial

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

Anime girl body outline

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.

For more on drawing anime necks see:

How to Draw Anime Neck & Shoulders

Step 3 – Draw the Details

Example of how to draw anime girl with 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

Anime girl with clothing

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:

How to Draw Anime Shoes Step by Step

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.

For more examples of drawing anime clothes see:

Step 5 – Add Color & Shading

Anime girl color drawing

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.
