Introduction: How to Draw an Anime Face!

Hi guys! Today I'll be guiding you through the steps of drawing anime. I love anime because it's very expressive and really fun to draw, so I thought I might show you guys some anime. It's very simple and easy to get the hang of it. Make sure to comment and say that you've made it!

Let's do this!


You will need:

  • Yourself!
  • A sharp pencil
  • A rubber
  • A piece of paper.


  • Colouring pencils
  • Fineliners

Step 1: Draw the Face

Grab your pencil and draw a curve with a point at the end of it. Make sure that both sides of the face are symmetrical.

Step 2: Draw the Neck

The neck is very simple to draw. It's just two curved " l's " back to back.

Step 3: Draw the Cute Eyes

This step is one of my favourite steps, I'm sure you'll agree!

There are many types of anime eyes, but I use this type of eye. If you want to look at different types of eyes, use this link.

Draw an oval-like circle and add a 'slope' at the edges of the eyes. Where the slope is, draw another oval in the same shape as the eye shape. Add a white circle to bring out the shine in your anime character's eyes. Don't forget their curly eyelashes! Make them symmetrical.

Step 4: Draw the Tiny Nose

The nose is another simple step! It's just a tiny flick or dot if you want it to be.

Step 5: Add the Mouth

You can show many expressions with the mouth, so it's up to you to decide what she doing with her mouth. I'm going to make her excited because everyone loves a happy anime character!

Step 6: Now for the Glamorous Hair!

This step is also one of my favourite steps because I love drawing hair! It can show a lot about your character.

I'm going to draw simple pigtails and a side fringe.

To draw pigtails, start by drawing two flat ovals for the bobbles. Then, draw a curve and carry it down. At the end, draw little flicks.

Step 7: Draw Blush and Eyebrows on Your Character's Face

All you need to do is draw two squiggles. One at one side of the face, one at the other. This will make your anime character cute! I didn't want to draw eyebrows because I thought it had enough expression. You could add eyebrows if you want.

Step 8: Finish With Some Colour

You don't have to add colour but you can if you want to. I personally don't like colouring, mainly because I'm not good at it!
