Lightly draw the base lines. If you accidentally erase some hair, redraw the hair. This might give you a chance to fix the hair, if needed. Always remember to use pencil.

Step 7. Start off with a clean line drawing of the face. Use a hard pencil for rough sketching and a medium pencil for bold lines. Use a hotpress paper (Bristol plate or vellum) if you want your shading to be more smooth/detailed otherwise any paper can be used for this drawing.  Sketch in a circle then add guidelines for the eyes and jaw.  Sketch in the eye lids/eye lashes, the iris/pupil, and the eye brows.  Sketch in the nose and mouth.  Sketch in the ears and hairline.  Define the head and neck.  Clean up any unneeded guidelines and define any rough lines.
Step 6. Finish up the drawing by using kneaded/sharpened erasers to add highlights and clean up the shading. Lightly dab over the skin with a kneaded eraser to make it lighter then use a blending stump to smooth out the shading. Use 2B, HB or F pencils to redefine the outlines.

Drawing initial contours of anime boy’s figure. When drawing something step by step, it is important to estimate the contours of your future drawing in the early stage. Therefore, we must begin by drawing the basic contours of our anime character, which might be easier to do using rectangular shapes that represent different parts of his body. The first rectangle is for the head and another one right below is for the neck, from which you need to extend two arched lines for the shoulders followed by two more lines for the arms. The circle in the middle is the elbow. Another rectangle in the end of the arm is the hand. Remember to apply light strokes of pencil at this stage. Then work on the tentative outline of your character’s clothing.
Final steps in drawing an anime boy. At this stage we’ll work on emphasizing the details of our anime character, mainly the face and the eyes. Thus start with the face, making the eyes wide with big black pupils. Add a tiny nose and an upside down triangle for a mouth. This particular technique of drawing a face applies only to anime. Moving on to clothing, add buttons, pockets, and belt. Don’t forget to add a t-shirt. Draw gloved hands out of the rectangles in the ends of arm lines. Work on the hair by drawing individual strands within the rectangles behind the ears. Finalize Pikachu’s outline and use circles to draw a very simple face. Of course, add ears, arms and a tail to this fictional creature.

Step 10. Finish up the drawing by cleaning up and adding to the background. Powdered graphite can be blended into the background to add a bit more variety.
Step 3. Finish up the drawing by using kneaded/sharpened eraser to add highlights and clean up the shading. Lightly dab over the skin with a kneaded eraser to make it lighter then use a blending stump to smooth out the shading. Use 2B, HB or F pencils to redefine the outlines.
Draw the mouth. Start with a short line, shaped like an arch. Then draw the same line, but this time upside down so that it looks like a pout. Add another little line under the mouth. This is the lower lip.
Step 5. Use a soft pencil (2B or 4B) to roughly shade in the face and eyes then use a blending stump to smooth out the rough shading. Try to make the shading and even as possible.

I have been searching websites and such for a while, but no one gives me the answers I need. How can I draw female floating hair while making it look decent?
You can draw wavy hair and add lines to it to add detail, or simply look at one of the other ‘how tos’ and draw it from that.
You may try hair blowing in the wind. This works really well with female manga.
Can I add ears and hair to it without it messing up the picture completely?
How can I tuck the hair in and out without erasing and messing up the picture?

Start off with a circle for the head. You can use dividers if you want a perfect circle. As you keep on practicing, you will be able to draw a perfect circle without any need of dividers or anything else.
(Do not put too much pressure on the pencil while drawing this as this is “just” a baseline and you will have to erase it when you’re done.)
Drawing is a great hobby if you have enough patience. Some drawings can take days to complete or even weeks when some of them are done in a couple of hours. This article will help you draw a manga (girl) face by following these easy steps.

Step 9. Use a kneaded eraser to add in the main highlights on the forehead, cheeks, nose, mouth and eyes. Use a 2B pencil to add the darkest shading an 2H/4H pencils to define the outlines. Use F or HB pencils on the outlines if you would like them to be more bold.
There are many different anime types, including cartoons, realistic, or fantasy drawings.
Drawing the eyes is the most difficult of them all. Start off with two lines on the horizontal baseline on the top, shaped like an arch. The lower lines of the eye should be straighter than the ones on the top but should still not be too straight.
The lower lines should be shorter than the ones on the top but not too short. Add some eyelashes, both on the top line and the lower line.

Before adding the mouth, you should erase the base lines. The mouth will be placed on the vertical line and just under the nose. But before erasing, mark the point where the mouth will be so it will be easier.
Don’t panic if you had erased the lines before marking the spot, it is easy to understand where it should be.
Color in your drawing with colored pencils. Here work on giving your drawing a high degree of contrast and color. Bright clashing colors are one of the distinct features of drawings in anime style. If you decide to stick to # 2 pencil, you must add light and dark contrasting shades throughout your drawing.
I’ve been trying over and over again to try to draw the perfect head and mouth, but I can’t do it. How can I improve?
Now draw a vertical line that divides the circle into half that is a little longer than the diameter of the circle and a horizontal one that the two lines make a 90° angle. (Draw the second line a little lower from the diameter of the circle.)
For the eyes, draw two ovals between the two lines. The lower tip of the oval should “slightly” touch the lower eyelid when the upper part of the oval should look like it was “half-covered” by the upper eyelid.
(Check the image for this step for some more help.) Although, if you want to give her a “surprised” look, the upper part of the oval nor the lower part should not touch the eyelids “at all”. Add little circles inside the eyes.
These will be the sparkles. Then add the pupils. The pupils should be large but if you want to give her a “frightened” look, the pupils should be small.

Put a little line on the point where the first vertical line cuts the circle. This is the nose.
Step 8. Use an HB or 2B pencil to roughly shade in the drawing, then use a blending stump or paper towel to smooth out the shading as much as possible. How smooth the shading turns out depends on how smooth the paper is.
Yes, add in the ears as shown in the article before you draw in the hair. You could draw the ears in lightly and erase them in spots depending on where the hair lands.
Draw another horizontal line a little higher than the first one. This line should be parallel to the first one. The eyes will be placed between the two of them.

Draw the eyes, nose and mouth. Remember that the nose must not be aligned with the eyes, and there must be a reasonable space between the mouth and the nose.
Adding more details to your anime drawing. Now erase all the extra lines and work on finalizing the contours. Begin with the face. For the hat, draw an arched line above the face connected to a round base on top of the head. Next, draw the ears and the triangles next to them for hair. Draw firm contours of the arms. Then you need to draw the collar and work on outlining the legs. Our character will be holding his friend Pikachu in his right hand. Draw a circle for this creature’s head and a rectangle for his body. After checking for correct proportions, it is safe to say the hardest part is over!

Keep practicing and you will get better. It doesn’t have to be perfect. Just make it the best that you can make it. It does not have to look exactly like the drawing that you are copying it from.

Drawing the facial contour anime-style. Anime character’s face is shaped like a rectangle connected to a triangle, which is exactly how you can draw it except smooth out the connection between these two geometrical shapes. This technique will give your character the distinct shape of the face with a narrow pointy chin. You can also add some detail to clothing at this step.
Like with any other art, you need to be calm when you are drawing and “enjoy” yourself. Add your “own” style. This is your drawing at the end. If you don’t like what you draw, don’t get too upset. You’ll get better as you keep practicing.
Practice makes perfect! Stay focused on your work and what you’re drawing. Add some shade to her lips so that it would look as if she put on lip gloss. Add shades in the iris to make the eyes look more realistic.
Use minimal shading. You can make her look cuter by adding some freckles. Draw eyelids to make her look like she had half-closed her eyes to make her look sleepy or like she is trying to flirt. Drawing also involves some natural talent.
You may not be very talented at drawing, then try finding another thing that you may be gifted at. You can also use two little dots for the nose.
Anime is a unique Japanese genre of drawing in pencil. Characters drawn in anime style have distinct shape of eyes and face. There are different kinds of anime, including manga and comics. An example of a famous anime cartoon is Pokemon, in which Pikachu is the leader among the many Pokemon. It is very fun to draw Pokemon characters as the drawing comes out highly contrasted even if done entirely in # 2 pencil. For anime art, it will suffice to draw a rough shape of the face and eyes. Anime characters wear bright simple clothing, which also helps ease the drawing process. It is important to make your drawing vivid. Even if you’re only using # 2 pencil, make sure you add a lot of contrast to your drawing, virtually without pastels. In this beginner’s lesson, we’re going to learn how to draw anime step-by-step using # 2 pencil.
