Come up with a story first. Then, you’ll need the ability to draw out that story. If you need any more help, you can go to any book store and find manga to give you a look on how a good story is written out.
Or, borrow some manga from your library. Keep practicing, as it can take time to get all the pieces sorted.
When drawing a full body pose, pay attention to the overall of your drawing. Don’t rush into the details of a specific part early on. If needed, sketch a general shape or blob of your vision in the beginning to help guide your composition.
Not every eye has to look like it has like 100 stars! Sometimes males have wider hips than most, for the right effect you have to make sure that the waist isn’t too curved or he might look like a girl.
Instead of drawing really dark lines, start with very light lines. Sketch it out at first, and then you can make them darker when you finish. Don’t go too overboard with the chin, as it won’t look right.
Hey guys, I’m back with another fun lesson, in anime style of course! We’ll be peepin’ in on a tutor

The gun is actually fairly simple you can do it with basic one point perspective technique. As for the character it’s totally different and if you want a quick start you can just do the manga drawing books that introduce you to simple concepts like head to body ratio and typical face porpotions.
But if you want to be a master bishoujo artist you will have to start from very old school classic figure drawing with all the muscular naked men and get to know every skeletal bone and muscle on a real human body, before you can start to apply manga and anime styles to sexy and cute girls.
As for software, there are Japanese software specifically designed for drawing anime girls. They usually have both vector and raster tools in one program, as well as handy things like rulers and one, two, three point perspective guides.
But honestly you don’t need them. If you don’t have a digitizer just draw on paper and scan it into photoshop. You then keep the pencil lines on top and add in all the color areas, and you have yourself a traditional anime poster.
But most things you see on konachan is actually all digital done with a digitizer.
So from what I’ve gathered, you’re basically asking how to learn to draw, specifically with an emphasis in anime. An awesome goal, but be warned, this is not a simple question to answer. Be prepared to scroll down.
I’ll also be kind and provide a “tl;dr” at the end for those short on time.Let’s start with mindset. Perhaps an unusual place to start, but I’ve found the things I’m about to list here to be incredibly important when learning to draw, especially when you’re first starting out.
So firstly..Draw A LOT. Draw feverishly and draw often. If you have a spare moment, sketch something in the same room as you. I don’t know if you’re working or a student, but if you have a lunch break or something similar, doodle while you eat.
I can’t stress enough how significant persistence is, regardless of the quality of the drawings. Which leads me to…Don’t worry about quality. A fascinating aspect of art that I’ve noticed is that it doesn’t take an artist to notice something off in a piece of artwork.
Because you’re just starting off, you will NOT like a lot of the stuff you draw. A lot of people I know gave up learning to draw early because they couldn’t stand how nothing ever came out right. Let me just tell you as an artist of 10+ years now, we ALL started that way.
It doesn’t have to be good, you just need to learn something from it. So lastly on the topic of mindset…Be persistent. You mentioned you had a ton of paper and strong willpower. Good. You’ll need both.
And I’m willing to bet you’ll need even more paper than you have. Practice daily. Especially practice drawing the things you’re interested in drawing. In your case, draw people as you see them in real life.
I know you want to draw anime style, but trust me, learning the basic structure of the human face will still translate into an exaggerated style like anime. Yeesh, this is already a long answer. But I suppose you’re not obligated to read it all, so let’s continue by going over the most basic of drawing techniques.
All drawing, regardless of style are rooted in some pretty fundamental principles. These are the skill sets you will need to acquire no matter what discipline you’re approaching, I could teach a 6 hour course on these, but I’ll just do what I consider the two most important here:Line.
When I say line here, I mean two things: quality of line, and just learning to draw good lines. I’ve met many people who, while learning to draw, make these little chicken scratch lines. Compare the first circle to the second one:See how lousy that first one looks? And yet a ton of beginning artists think they can be more precise by drawing tiny little line segments.
It might feel awkward at first, but learn to be confident in your lines, and keep the pencil moving.Shape. You’ve probably heard this before, but everything is composed of basic shapes at their core. They might not be all regular shapes, but if you can create an outline of your drawing using simple shapes before getting into the details of any one part, you’ll have an easier time getting the overall look correctly proportioned.
This isn’t a perfect drawing, but it’s a good starting point. From here you can easily make changes to refine and add detail to your drawing.Whoo boy, almost done. You must be dedicated if you’ve read this far.
Because you’re going for an anime style, you’re in luck. There are TONS of great resources out there that teach the Japanese anime/manga style. My personal favorite is Mark Crilley over on Youtube. He’s a professional manga artist with several published books, but he also does tutorials online teaching everything from faces to body structures within the anime/manga style.
Here’s a link: markcrilley. Peruse his channel for any length of time and you’re bound to learn something.You also mentioned how in looking at other peoples art, there is often a ridiculous amount of detail.
Sorry to say that each of those details is something of a mastery in and of themselves. Shading and lighting are a whole other lesson. Folds in clothing are as well. I’d browse the Quora Drawing section for more good questions and answers regarding these things, as this answer is already getting stupidly long.
But the thing I love about Quora is you can just keep asking questions. Practice the things I’ve talked about here to start, and then ask more questions once you’ve gotten the hang of it. If you read this whole thing, thank you for listening to me ramble, and I wish you the best of luck.
tl;dr: Draw a lot, don’t worry about the results, learn to be fluid when drawing your lines, everything is composed of basic shapes, Mark Crilley is awesome for learning anime/manga style. Good luck.
Draw the basic outline of the face and the ears. The ears should be within the middle line for the eyes up to the line for the mouth.

When drawing hair, remember that hair doesn’t always hug the skull. Try to make it look fluffy by having it extend over the sides of the face. Also, don’t try to draw every single strand; basic outlines or “clumps” works better.
Lastly, consider making the hair appear more dynamic by drawing it blowing slightly to one side.
Erase the draft lines and add more details. You can add more creases in the clothes and hair details.
Well, the only thing that you need is a great imagination, pen and paper. When I started out, I was bad. Plain bad. I ended up drawing stick figures that looked nothing like the character I was trying to imitate.
But, then one day I decided to try drawing by looking at a picture. That day, I learnt how to draw a classic anime eye by looking at that character. Your best shot would be practice. Pencil, paper and patience can get you far in the anime art section.
Again, you’d have to pay attention to detail. Observe various manga authors and how they have drawn their character. I think Dragon Ball is the easiest in the great looking ones, so go for that first.
Then start moving to SAO, SnK, Bleach, etc. Each time you draw, don’t just trace it. Observe how each feature is drawn. The more you draw, the more insight you can get into how to tackle various parts of the anime person you want to draw.
This way, you can even create your own anime character given enough time and practice. Also, I would recommend that you keep all your pictures in a separate notebook ordered by date. This can help you monitor your performance an improvement since the first one you drew.

Just like all the other lessons that can be found in the Anime section of Dragoart, learning “how to draw anime people” is just as important as drawing anime characters. I know what you must be thinking, ‘characters and people are the same’, and for the most part you are right. But for artists that like creating their own manga comics, learning how to draw anime people is very important because the figures drawn in the comics are usually based on actual people they know. For instance, if you have an idea to make a manga or anime comic, your characters will without a doubt be based on real life people. It’s almost like making sketching of yourself or someone you know in anime form instead of sketching out a realistic portrait. It can be hard to draw manga people, but if you do it right, you will become a really good artist too. If you have a strong desire for making comics related to anime or manga, you will need to teach yourself how to make anime characters at some point. Unless of course you know someone that can draw for you. Either way, learning the right way is always best, and if you notice, there is a good amount of tutorials to choose from in this section of Anime People.

Personally, I think SAI (another software for digital painting & drawing) is more easy to handle than photoshop and it will also help you with high-quality drawings as it has a lot of functions which are similar or the same as PS.
Try it.As for drawing skills, keep on imitating your favourate artist’s works will benefit you a lot and a better understanding of human anatomy (which can be achieved by constant practice of sketching human bodies) will help you be able to draw different characters in different scenarios.

Software is not going to draw the illustrations for you. You need to learn by hand to draw in this style, plus know your visual language. It takes many years to get to a professional level like in your example.
It would be much easier if you could team up with an illustrator, rather then to spend years into mastering a drawing technique. Many illustrators are struggling to create great stories, creating art is so labour intensive.
To have a team is such an advantage. What you could do is draw out for them using stick-figures the basic scenario. How do you like the scenes to look like? Have meetings a be like a director creating a movie.
In comics every part is a specialisation. You have writers, pencillers, inkters, colorists, special effects, lettering. With software like Manga Studio maybe one person could do this all, but it requires quite some skills.
It is like learning to play every instrument in a rock band. People can do it, but it is hard.

I remember how I got into drawing. I was 16 I guess. I would take pencil boxes, posters wallpapers etc and use them as reference to draw. I was so bad. But then I got a little better. I would have been much better had I continued.
Here is an example. The upper sketch is when I paused an episode of DBZ on my pc and used that as a reference. The spiderman I drew using an Action figure. (What! I was an excited boy back then!)And then I colored it.
This one is from my friend’s pencil box. These are from stickers or playing cards.You get the idea.I know these aren’t very good. I just want to convey the passion I had those days. I would try to draw anything and everything I thought looked interesting.
I was so into DBZ, there came a time when I could draw any DBZ character in various poses. I did not even need any reference for this one. I saw an episode of DragonBall GT and drew this. These are nothing like the image in your question.
However, I am sure most people start here.So here are my suggestions to you.1. Draw A LOT – Draw anime characters, draw trees, birds, streets, object, buildings. Whatever you think would bring your novel alive.
Start using actual anime pics. Eventually you will be able to draw anything that is still. 2. Look at arts from other artists. Try to learn what elements various artists try to emphasize. Eyes, Muscles, Hair whatever.
Look at art from One-piece (there are so many details in a single panel and not every person has the same physical features), DBZ (closest physical features to reality-don’t count the face or hair), etc.
3. See what you can do with just pencil first. Then take out copies of it and try shading, or coloring as much as you can. Until you think this looks good or even different. 4. Show your art to people of various age groups and ask their opinions.
You want to know your target audience better. Let me know what you think.
