Now it’s the mouth!You draw two lines that are slightly curved and close to each other.No, these are not two mouths.

Note: using light colors to darker one will make the tone lighter and gives a shiny effect.

Step 1-2: first color the skin with base color (light flesh) then start building up layers of colors, then Burnish it with white colored pencil.

Note: i use pink colored pencil on making lighter tones and burnish it with white colored pencil to give a shine effect on the ribbon.

To do this, select View > Proof Setup > Custom… and apply the settings that are shown above. Now every time you press Y you can see your work-in-progress as a greyscale image.

After sketching i use a regular pen for outlining. Then use eraser to remove unnecessary pencil lines!

Step 8: use the dark color(black and dark blue) to make contrast between hair strand it will make the hair more realistic. After that burnish it with white colored pencil to smoothen the texture.

Yahalo minna! I show you my style on coloring my drawing with colored pencil! ~(‘▽^人)

TIP#5: “Burnishing” is using white colored pencil or other colorless blending material to make your colors smooth, silky and realistic.

Now for the fun part (well in my opinion), the hair!Start with drawing some curved lines like in the picture, making sure that they don’t look to scruffy or too flat.

Alrighty, now we’re gonna start with the eyes. They go a little above the horizontal line. This is cause I always start with the top of the eye. The eyes end at the horizontal line.So just draw a thick curved line for the top row of eyelashes.

To start with, you will need to get your pencil and paper out. Then, draw a circle on your page LIGHTLY.Afterwards, you draw a sort of upside down triangle on the bottom of the circle.

Step 9: color the ribbon with base color(dark blue, violet, red and dark pink) then start building up layers of colors.

TIP#3: “Layering” is applying the colored pencil gradually to make layers on color. do not rely on single application of color layering will bring good texture making your colors more complex and more realistic.

and I’d like to start coloring.. If anyone has any suggestions or tips, or photos like this one, I’d appreciate it 🙂

For this you will need:• paper• a lead pencil• eraser• felt tip or ballpoint pen• colored pencils, preferably ones that like to blend with each other. 🙂

special thanks to my bestfriend LUCINA she helps me a lot doing this tutorial.

@EllensterThank you.That’s great! I hope you have fun drawing it.

Step 11: use black colored pencil to make contrast and shading. It will make you drawing more realistic

“In a real fight, there is no ‘next time'” || ‘Ga-Rei: Zero’ anime review

Now you just draw two circles under the lashes but above that horizontal line. You can also add little lines above the lashes for a little eye crease.

Note: using and blending many colors will give a huge impact.

I always draw plenty of anatomical details during the initial sketch stage. Even though they’ll probably fade away during the rendering stages, such subtle details will still leave an impression. For example, most of the lines in the character’s back in my initial sketch are rendered out in the final design, but the impression of underlying musculature remains. Accurate, low-key anatomy will set your manga art apart from the crowd.

I decided to turn that bit of shading I done earlier into a headband~ It was colored with a brown pencil and a red pencil. Again, with that gradient sort of thing I did on the hair.You can also color the eyes. Just color it solidly and leave a white space.AND YOU’RE DONE! I hope it was fun and not too difficult to understand.

Step 5: use color pink, violet, yellow and light magenta to color the whole iris. Color the lower part of the eyelid with black colored pencil to make it more realistic.

Now we’re going to start on the skin.For this you’ll need a peachy/flesh colored pencil and a red or crimson pencil.You’re going to start by adding your red/crimson to the cheeks like how it is on the left side of the face lightly.You’re then going to layer over with the flesh color, pressing down hard and slowly fading out.Repeat this with the nose and the lips.Then go over the face lightly with your skin color to brig it together.You may also add some more shading around the nose and under the fringe.

It’s important to separate lights by colour. Here, the red circles are the primary warm highlights – notice how these highlights are almost purely white. The blue circles are areas that take on the yellow light from the background. This helps the viewer easily distinguish between the different lights being used (essentially, it’s directional light versus rim light). I use a Darken layer for this process. 

Step 4: draw first the pupil of the eye and color it with violet and yellow. After that i use dark magenta on the upper eyelids instead of black just to make it more colorful.

Step 6-7: color the hair with the base colors(violet, yellow and light brown) and start creating layers of colors. Use white colored pencil to burnish it resulting to smooth and silky texture of the colors. color the hair part by part and don’t hurry.

Note: i used the dark colors (black, dark magenta and dark pink) on the upper part of the iris to make a contrast to the lower part of the iris. It will make the eye more realistic.

Now you’re going to take your darker pencil and go from the tips up, gradually getting lighter.It’s a little hard to see in my pictures, but you notice it a bit, right?

Now, just draw some more lines so that they connect and look like reasonable chunks of hair. You can add some more or get rid of some at this point if you like.You might also want to add the neck in. Don’t worry about putting any clothing on her just yet.

Step 10: start applying the dark colors and burnish it white colored pencil to smoothen the colors.

For my final highlights pass, I use a separate Overlay or Color Dodge layer and draw out a thick highlight with Transparency turned on. Then I use an eraser to create the highlight shape. This is similar to masking but a little more intuitive, and because it’s on a separate layer you can adjust the colour with the Hue slider.

I’m not that good on explaining things but I hope you still understand my tutorial (ノ_

Note: “Burnishing” is using white colored pencil or other colorless blending material to smoothen the texture of the color and gives it a silky look.

TIP#8: Practice and love on what you doing can make everything possible.

Step 12-13: color the inner clothe with the base color(dark magenta, red, pink, and dark pink) and start creating layers of colors then burnish it with white colored pencil.

Colors that i used: white, light flesh, dark flesh, brown and black

With all the colours laid out, it’s time to start transforming my manga art character’s features and adding details. This character needed to have a Jet Set Radio-like underlying theme. So I render out the face with similarities from the game’s unique style while trying to maintain a manga likeness at the same time.

Colors that i used: white, gray, black, dark magenta, dark pink, pink, yellow, gold and red

Step 14-15: darken the color make it smooth. Use black colored pencil on shading making contrast and burnish it again.

The best manga art is colourful and expressive. In this Photoshop tutorial, I’ll explain how I work with colour and form to make my manga art characters shine. I’ll also go through the basic rendering techniques I use in my manga illustrations.

Hello there! This is my first instructable. I hope you enjoy doing this and leave feedback! :)So this is basically how I draw a female anime headshot/bust. The photos aren’t that high quality, but they should be fine. There’s lots of steps, but I hope it’s not too long.

I want the background to pop and feel real, even though it’ll eventually have a two-dimensional, stylised look. So I begin messing with Photoshop’s blending options, filters and inverted controls. While doing this, I never know where it’s going to end up. Experiment with different layer effects until something magical happens.

Note: building up layers of colors or “Layering” is applying the color gradually and burnish it with white colored pencil doing it repeatedly will result to a good texture of the color and making it more realistic.

Note: making a contrast make the color more realistic a little bit similar on shading for example making a contrast between two things to make a effect the they overlap each other while shading gives a darker tone on the object and shadow effect.

TIP#6: take your time when coloring with colored pencil. because colored pencil demands time when using it.

Colors that i used: yellow, pink, light magenta, dark pink, violet, dark magenta and black

We have a be nice policy. Please be positive and constructive.

Erase all the lead pencil and make sure there aren’t any eraser bits on your page.Now you can start coloring!I’ve chosen for my girls hair to be blue.For whatever color you are coloring her hair, you need two different shades of it.Okay, you’re going to mark out the spots that are going to be left white (or colored in veeerrrry lightly with your lightest color) with your color that’s the lightest. After that, you’re going to need to color all the spaces but the marked ones with the lightest color.

Although I’m keeping this illustration pretty simple, it never hurts to carry on detailing (at least, up to a point). I prefer to detail using highlights.

I started sketching using mechanical pencil but its just optional. You can use any kind of pencil!

feel free to leave a comment on what should i improve. I can also do a request and other tutorials

Now we’re on to the neck area. Put a small amount of red in the places shown in the picture.Blend it with the skin color and lightly go over the whole area.Shade in a bit around the hair and where the neck starts.

Person, I respect you. Both for the cool art and the sheer awesomeness of Kagerou project- Konoha specifically- in your username and icon.

TIP#4: “Blending” always blend colors it gives a good effect on the colors. For example when coloring a grass don’t use green only try blending it with blue and yellow to gives you different tones.

Colors that i used: brown, light brown, yellow, gold, violet, black, dark blue and white

You draw the nose now. It’s a little higher than that curved line of the circle.I suppose it’s a ‘v’ sort of shape.

At this point I need to check the tones within the composition to make sure that I haven’t pushed the contrast too far. I strongly believe you should be constantly toggling between colour and greyscale views throughout the entire painting process. 

TIP#2: Applying different pressure on the same color will give you different result for example applying hard pressure on the colored pencil will give you rich color.

In this tutorial I used two custom Photoshop brushes: a square brush (which I use to sharpen the edges of solid forms) and a render brush (which helps me draw and render without having to switch brushes). You can download them for free here.

Here’s the preliminary gesture for the final image. At this stage you can be as gestural as you want. Go ahead and be messy, use construction lines and energetic lines until you find the pose you’re looking for. Sometimes you’ll find new and interesting ways of constructing a scene through these unplanned lines.

ill take this advice thanks im a visual learner so I can copy this meathod easily ill just change the eyes and maybe add some other nose aswell as hair but you said its also how to colour it aswell and all it has is the drawing not the colouring.

Of course, with every splash of colour you need an element of glow. Using an Exclusion layer, I remove the green channel so I can have a green knockout glow effect behind the character. This helps lift the main character off the background and make her pop off the page.

To connect the character to the background’s overall palette, I change her shirt to a deep orange. Even though it’s tonally correct, her shirt was blending with the background clouds too much. It’s never too late to make these kinds of adjustments. Don’t settle for what you’ve painted until your eyes agree with the overall image.

Okay, now that you’ve completed those steps, you can add a little detail in the eyes. Be careful not to make the pupils too big!

I hope you learn something new i tried my best explaining it even i’m bad at it.

Step 18-19: darken the colors then burnish it. Use the black colored pencil on making contrast and shading. It will reveals the folds on the clothe making it more realistic.

Step 3: use the black colored pencil to darken or to shade an areas. Similar on shading using pencil to give contrast light source is important.

I realise I need to justify why there’s rim light on the character. Art doesn’t always need to make sense, but in this case the colourful environment means I definitely need to show the cause behind the effect. What better way to do this than by painting, a giant stylised sun to match the rest of the background? 

Now you put a sort of plus sign across the face. This will help you to position the facial features in the right places.I drew a hairline and a part on the back of the head but you do not new to draw this. And if you do, for the love of all that is good, don’t shade it in like I did. It makes it way harder to erase afterwards. Oh yeah, you add the ear after that. It’s sort of a semi-circular shape that starts just under the horizontal line on the face.

Now you start the inking process! Just take out your pens and go over the lines you’ve drawn (except for the guidelines!).If you’re not sure what guidelines are, refer to the finished picture and see what lines are missing.If you’re still confused, it’s the lines on the face and any lines under the hair.I’ve also added a loose shirt on her while I was inking. If you don’t feel confident drawing the shirt straight up in pen, then do it in pencil first. 🙂

Note: i use many color to make it more complex and more colorful.

Step 16-17: color the outer clothe with base color (gold, yellow and dark magenta) and build up layers of colors. Then burnish it with white colored pencil to smoothen the texture.

Colors that i used: white, dark blue, violet, dark pink, red, pink and black

Now you need to color the shirt.Shade in with your seasides color around the few creases and where there would be a shadow.

Note: you can use light brown instead of light and dark flesh.


For my background I’ve used a smooth transition of colour, despite there being contrasting elements, such as the buildings against the clouds. In everything you paint, you should be looking for ways to implement colour gradients. Think of the whole image as one big abstraction of colour, and then find ways to bring certain areas of colour together.
