Rough in the form
Rough in a front view of a female form, beginning with the head and then adding the torso, limbs, hands, and feet.
Exaggerate the form
Exaggerate the form's feminine aspects by slimming the waistline and hips, enlarging breasts, and lengthening the legs. Also, shorten the torso.
Add facial features
Add facial features, keeping the pointed nose and mouth small. Draw very large eyes near each side of the head. Then add ears, a pointed chin, and a thin neck.
Add hair in the anime style by blocking in sections with V-tipped ends.
Add clothing appropriate to your figure's age and character. Indicate folds where the body bends with a few clean lines.
Erase unwanted guidelines. Now your drawing is ready for framing and you're ready to advance from anime novice to experienced artist.
