Let's say you're on a road trip. You're in the backseat heading to your grandparents house. You have a receipt or a scrap of paper or maybe even a napkin! And a pen. You love anime? Then learn how to draw some thing you're truly satisfied with so you don't waste so much paper!

Step 1: Find Random Stuff

Look around. Find something like a receipt, napkin, sticker sheet without stickers, etc. Basically something paper. And dig around for a pen.

Step 2: Eyes

Plan your eyes. Flip the paper over a lightly draw a pair. Use your own or the ones I drew.

Step 3: First Part of Your Drawing

At this point you should have a vision in your head of what he/she looks like, so let's get started. To draw a head shape make a U with a pointed bottom. Then make a neck with two lines and shoulders.

Step 4: Make the Hair

Start with the bangs or front. (Sorry don't have those pictures) Then add the back. Like ponytails, pigtails, braids, down, etc. Add hair accessories.

Step 5: Facial Features

Step 6: Torso

Attach torso to shoulders(don't make arms yet!) and make desired shirt or dress. Add wrinkles for a more anime look.

Step 7: Almost Done

Add arms and legs. Hands are a little difficult so don't fret. For pants add wrinkles(unlike my mistake -_-).

Step 8: Now...

Wowzas! You're a great and talented anime artist and I believe you could be a professional. If this is just a quick drawing- in pen- I can't wait to see a very detailed drawing! Good job, looking foward to more. Keep up your good work!
