STEP 1. Make two guide shapes, one for the head and the other for the torso. You will then sketch in the facial guidelines then draw the one vertical guide for the torso. Add the neck and arm lining as well.   STEP 2. Next up, sketch out the shape of her face structure like so, then sketch in the bangs which are shifted to the left like so. Some of her hair falls on the side of her face.   STEP 3. Next, draw in the shapes of the eyes then make the upper eyelids lines thick so her eyes stand out. Draw a nose and mouth too and the eyebrows.   STEP 4. Up next, as you know many Japanese women have long, very straight hair. This is the type of style you will draw for this anime girl. Drawing the hair will also add the shape of the head. Sketch out the long straight hair, and when you do this make sure the hair goes past her shoulders and arms. It should also be swaying in the breeze instead of just laying flat.   STEP 5. You are almost done with this Japanese anime girl. All you have to do now is draw the shape of her neck, then draw in her kimono. As you can see she is a very thin, frail looking girl. Add the sash around her waist, then add detailing to her clothing.   STEP 6. For the last step all you have to do is draw in the parasol that she is holding. The umbrella or parasol is fully open and crowns her entire head. Detail the parasol and erase all of the mistakes you have made.   STEP 7. Here is the line art when you are all done. Have fun coloring her in. Now you have a perfect drawing of a Japanese anime girl.   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. Step 5. Step 6. Step 7.
