Introduction: How to Draw: Anime-like Face

You will be learning how to draw this long-haired male with a blue streak

Step 1: Materials

Here's a list of materials that you need for this drawing:

Paper or Sketchbook



Inking pen (I used Micron 03)

Markers (I used Blick Studio Brush Markers)

Step 2: Step 1

First, you sketch out a circle. Then you draw a line with a wide V shape at the end.

Step 3: Step 2

After that, you start sketching out the chin and cheek part of the face. Be sure to try and make it symmetrical.

Step 4: Step 3

Then, draw 3 horizontal lines marking where the eyes and mouth go. Try to make them parallel to each other.

Step 5: Step 4

Sketch out vertical lines marking where the eye starts.

Step 6: Step 5

Start to sketch out an egg shape to make up the eye. Widen the bottom part so it doesn't look so much like an actual egg, though.

Step 7: Step 6

Make the pupils of the eyes and the shimmer in the eye. (I messed up on them in further steps)

Step 8: Step 7

Sketch out the nose and the mouth. Make the nose a right triangular shape that is shaded black. Then I draw the mouth like 2 dashes. ( _ _ )

Step 9: Step 8

Start drawing the hair to make up a frizzy-type long hair so that it makes up of a male-type long hair.

Step 10: Step 9

sketch out 2 horizontal lines to make up the base of the neck. (usually, males have bigger necks than females in drawing the anime-type face. This is a male, so have a bigger neck like in this image)

Step 11: Step 10

Draw the neck out.

Step 12: Step 11

Outline the drawing with your inking pen.

Step 13: Step 12

Add any additional details with the inking pen. (ie shading, filling in small gaps, etc.)

Step 14: Step 13

Lastly, Color in with markers. Make sure to add the streak in his hair.

Step 15: Done!

You are finally finished! You can do this whichever way you want! Remix it! Change it up a bit! It's all yours to do! Thanks for doing this tutorial if you did, and don't forget to keep drawing!
