Step 1: The Face: Basic
First, draw an oval shape, kind of flattened on the top.
Step 2: The Face: Final
Now, draw a kind of a flattened V, fancily.add the ears.
PS: The ears should be really low, just when the V kind of bends toward the chin. Earrings can be added later.
Step 3: The Eyes
Draw 2 eyebrow like shapes. After that, draw a big uppercase U touching the "eyebrows'. there are many different ways of manga eyes. in this instructable, I am going to show a very easy type of eyes, but also very cute.. After drawing the eyes, make a highlight on the right upper hand corner. Dive the leftover space into half. The one with the highlight will be shaded thickly. the other space will be shaded lightly.
Step 4: The Nose
Below the right or the left eye, put a small dot and extend it in 2 ways.The result should be a v turned to the right or left.
Step 5: The Mouth
For the mouth, it depends on the character's mood. draw a normal, happy mouth to make it look especially cute.
Step 6: The Hair
Draw the signature manga bangs.If you really want to know, they are just vs.Then draw an upside down U few centimeters above it. Make the hair long, shoulder-length or short.
