Post navigationHow to Draw Manga Faces Step by Step for a Beginner
This is going to be a girl, and the first thing we’ll do is draw the outline of the face. For this, we use guidelines. These will help us in two ways: (1) to place the facial features, and (2) to prevent us from drawing a lopsided manga face.
Sketch a circle and a vertical rectangle. Draw a straight line connecting the two shapes. There should be about a half centimeter of space between the rectangle and circle
The ears usually start from around the top of the eye to the bottom of the nose.
There are many different anime types, including cartoons, realistic, or fantasy drawings.
How can I tuck the hair in and out without erasing and messing up the picture?
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.
There are some differences between the male and female manga face: The male has a sharper look. The eyes are smaller. The eye lashes aren’t as long or they may not be visible at all, as in this case. And the eye brows appear thicker and closer to the eyes. The mouth and nose are usually bigger than the female’s as well.
Then draw more slanted lines to form the cheeks like so. Since it’s a girl’s face the cheek bones should have a soft appearance.
I keep trying to do it right, but I always mess up. How can I improve?

Add the guidelines face and body curve. For the body curve guideline, draw a triangle for the upper body shape and a semi circle for the hips.
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.)
And Drum roll! Our work here is done. Here is the final result after adding all the features to the face. I’ve also given our manga girl a neck, shoulders and some hair. Now all you have to do is clean it up by gentle erasing the unnecessary lines.

You can draw the hair however you’d like to for your character. If you want to make it more realistic, maybe add a few curls or stray hairs.
Draw the draft for the dress. You can dress the character with a dress you like.
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.
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.
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.
Draw the eyes between the first and second line. Note, the distance between the eyes is an equal eye space. Find out more about drawing anime eyes here. And the eyebrows go above the lines.

And that’s it. Now that you have learned “how to draw a manga face”, use the guidelines and the tips below to draw another one.
The best trick for drawing hands well is to study your own hands first. Notice the shape, color, texture, angles, etc. Draw your hand in dozens of different positions and in different lighting. This isn’t a shortcut, per se, but it’s an exercise that will improve your drawing.
Erase the draft lines and add more details. You can add more creases in the clothes and hair details.

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).

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.
You may try hair blowing in the wind. This works really well with female manga.
Start by drawing a circle and then dividing it in half with a vertical line that passes the bottom of the circle.
Put a little line on the point where the first vertical line cuts the circle. This is the nose.
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.
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.

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.
It probably won’t look great because you don’t want anything else covering the drawing, but if it’s the only paper you have, then use it.
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! Don’t go too overboard with the chin, as it won’t look right. 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.
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. Take your time! If you rush it will look messy.
Draw a number 6. Add a head with cat ears. Fill in details (eyes, mouth, whiskers, etc.).
And finally, it’s time to add all the features that make up a face!
Next draw a straight horizontal line in the center of the circle.
Try sketching it lightly at first, then darken it later. it doesn’t have to be perfect.
The best way to improve is to keep practicing. You can watch anime to get an idea of how anime characters look. Another way to improve is to draw with friends, so they can give you new tips and techniques.
Add the shape of the girl such as the face, the arms, neck and body shape.
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.

Eyes do not pass the jaw lines.Ears go from top of the eyes to the bottom of the nose.Male eyebrows are thicker and closer to the eyes.The nose is in the center of the face when viewing from the front.Female usually have smaller mouth and nose.
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.
Add the guidelines for the face. Draw 3 lines for the eyes’ position and a line for the mouth’s.
Check the grade you want to buy online or on in your favorite local art supply store’s website. If you cannot find the grade, ask the retailer to supply it. If they cannot, then try a different retailer who knows their paper grades.
Include your email address to get a message when this question is answered.
I use an HB pencil or mechanical pencil, then use a 4B to outline, and then a thick pencil, like a 10B, to shade.
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.)
Drawing an anime character is just like the adventure the character travels through. This task can be tricky though, so here’s a step-by-step guide.
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.
Now that we have finished drawing the shape of the face with these helpful guidelines, we now know where to put every thing; from the top of the head to the eyes to the chin.
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”.
Add the eyes, nose, and mouth. Also add the details for the ears and the eyes.
These will show us where to draw the eyes, nose, mouth, ears and chin on our manga character’s face.
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.
For this how to draw manga faces tutorial, you’ll need the following drawing tools: pencil, eraser, ruler or a digital drawing application like PaintTool Sai or Photoshop.
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?
Here are some tips to remember when drawing a manga or anime face.
Place the nose below the second guideline. And the mouth goes on the third line.
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.

I made a face chart that you are free to use as an easy guide when you draw faces from the front. Also be sure to check out this other tut which explains how to draw anime heads step by step from a three quarter angle.
Sketch the extremities as lines and circles. The circles represent the joints.
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.
When you draw manga faces, keep in mind that there are various styles and shapes that you can do. It depends on the type of character that you want to create. For now, this guide shows you step by step how to draw a basic manga face.
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.
To draw an anime character, start by drawing a big circle for the head and then sketching the neck and shoulders. Next, draw an outline for the face that includes a chin and ears. Once you’ve sketched the face, add the eyes, nose, and mouth to your drawing. Finally, sketch the hair and clothes. When you’re finished, erase any overlapping lines and color in your drawing.
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.
Have one of your friends model the pose while you draw it so you can see where to position everything.
Can I add ears and hair to it without it messing up the picture completely?
Now it’s time to draw the jaws and cheek. Starting from about the second line, draw a line slanted that reaches the third line on both sides.
