Anime characters from television and manga are now embraced by everyone especially youngsters. They are cute and always resemble perfection. It has always been the subject of some people who enjoy making cartoons. The typical drawing of anime characters was by hand, but anime figur due to the eruption of technology, computers and animation software are now used for this purpose. But first of all, you should have the art of fine drawing, as well as the appropriate tools and materials. The basic things you need are a pencil, colored pencils and an eraser.

Here’s how to draw five different anime characters

Anime Girl

Draw an intersecting horizontal and vertical line (form a cross). Then draw a pentagon shape around the cross. The size of the pentagon you make reflects how big the girl’s face is. Draw the character’s hairline by drawing a horizontal line at the top of the pentagon. This line should be the width of your face. Outline the girl’s eyes by adding two ovals on either side of your vertical line. Make the ovals evenly spaced. Add a smaller oval in each oval to create an iris. Add eyelashes to the girl’s eyes by drawing a horizontal line across each oval and filling them dark. Draw the chin just above the pentagon with a horizontal line. Draw the girl’s neckline by placing two vertical lines on either side of the chin just below the pentagonal frame. Add eyebrows and eyelids to your character’s eyes by drawing an arcuate line the same width as the eye just above the eyelash line. Add another one just above to mark the eyebrow. The arc of each line should reflect the oval shape of the eye. The wider the eye, the wider the eyebrow and eyelid become. Fill the eyes with glare and pupils. Place the nose by drawing an S shape just below the intersection of the cross. Then draw a small slit underneath for the mouth. Add hair both above and slightly below the hairline drawn earlier. Finish off the face by placing the ears on either side of the head, landing just below the eyes.

Anime Boy

Draw a simple circle, a round circle. Add half an octagon to the bottom of your circle. Erase the bottom of your circles until its edges meet the borders of the half octagon. Draw a horizontal and vertical line across the center of the face. Place large, open circles for eyes across the top half of your horizontal line, with eyebrows placed evenly over each eye. Place these by placing a dot directly under the center of the cross. Add two lines on either side of the chin to create a neck. Add hair to the boy’s look.


Draw a large circle, usually a perfect circle. Then draw two circles inside for the eyes, usually chibi eyes are big. You may or may not draw a nose under the eyes. Add the mouth connected with a simple straight line and a slightly curved line underneath. Add the hair. Then draw the body. Chibi bodies are chubby, very small compared to the head, as are the arms and legs. Lastly add shadows and fine lines.

Anime Animal

Start with a big circle for the head and then add the facial lines. Draw the shape of the floppy ears and the shape of the face. Draw two circles for his eyes. Leave three anime figur shapes in each eye white to make the eyes look staring. Then draw a nose and some hair on his cute head. Finish plucking out the ears by adding tips and the front and back legs. Draw him a cheekline and eyebrows. Finish drawing the face shape and outline the back paws. Add a curled tail and toe lines in his front paws.

Anime Eyes

Draw two lines almost curved sideways. These are the top and bottom lids. Add two tinted triangles for lashes on the upper and lower lid. Give a lid fold. By drawing a large oval in the eye and adding a line above the upper lid. Draw another circle inside this circle for the pupil. Incorporate a large bold line for the eyebrow.
