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.
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 can draw a vertical line down the middle of the head for the front view to help you insure that both sides are even.
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.
Can I add ears and hair to it without it messing up the picture completely?

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.
It depends on how you want the hair. If you want it sort of like in the wind, draw the hair more messy and tilted to one side of your character’s face. You may edit as you like as well, so it looks “decent”.
This tutorial explains how to draw a an anime or manga girl’s head head and face from the front and side views.
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.

Before we begin it might be a good idea to outline the defining features of the anime style.

For the side view draw the nose about halfway between the bottom of the chin and the middle of the head and the mouth outline with the bottom lip halfway between the chin and the nose.
Draw the chin small and almost pointy but with a tiny curve at the bottom.
Add some fill to the drawing to make it stand out a little more.
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.)
Once again for the front view draw the nose halfway between the chin and the middle of the face (just like the side view). Draw the mouth slightly higher than the halfway point between the chin and the nose. Draw the eyebrows slightly above the eyes. Draw the irises with the top parts being slightly covered by the eyelids. Draw the ears with the top parts being close to the top of the eyes and the bottom parts slightly below the eyes.

First draw the outline of the eyes. For the front view you can draw a horizontal line through the middle of the head and draw the eyes below that. It will also help you insure that both eyes are at the same height.
Add the eyebrows. Eyebrows can be straight (if you want an innocent or afraid look) or they can be arch-shaped (if you want a serious or neutral look).
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.

I keep trying to do it right, but I always mess up. How can I improve?
Try sketching it lightly at first, then darken it later. it doesn’t have to be perfect.
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.
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. Use minimal shading. Add shades in the iris to make the eyes look more realistic. Add some shade to her lips so that it would look as if she put on lip gloss.
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.
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.

Most female anime characters tend to have big eyes, a small mouth, nose and chin, and a fairly round face. The lips are either very lightly defined or not drawn at all. The hair is usually drawn in clumps instead of individual strands and often tends to have a somewhat spiky look.
For instructions on how to draw the full body you can check out the How to Draw an Anime Girl Step by Step Detailed Tutorial.
Draw the chin with the help of these two lines. The two points where the circle and the horizontal line touch, mark the point where the jaw will start and the tip of the vertical line will be the tip of the chin.
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.)

Keeping these things in mind we can begin drawing our character.
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.
You may try hair blowing in the wind. This works really well with female manga.

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?
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.
Put a little line on the point where the first vertical line cuts the circle. This is the nose.
Keep in mind that the hair will overlap some of the other features of the character’s face. But it is still good practice to draw those out especially since they may be visible if you choose to draw a different hair style. You can erase the parts that are covered up by the hair once you are done.
