How to Draw Anime Bodies 21
STEP 1. When drawing a figure you should start off with the head. So first draw a circle.   STEP 2. Add the chin by drawing a shape similar to a triangle at the base of the circle, but with slightly curvy lines.   STEP 3. Divide the head in 2. The bottom half is where your character's facial features will be drawn. Next divide the bottom half of the head in 2.   STEP 4. Now you must again, divide the 2 bottom halves in 2 equal sized portions. The reason for all the dividing was finding out where to place the eyes, nose and lips.   STEP 5. Draw the eyes between the first 2 lines(1 &2), the nose between lines 2 and 3 and place the mouth on the last division line, aka the 4th line.   STEP 6. Now onto the body. The male body can be divided into 8 equal divisions the same size as the head. The female body however can be divided into 7 and a half divisions, the female body generally being smaller and more curvy.   STEP 7. Make a stick figure using the divisions as guidelines. The joints are usually on the guidelines, except for the shoulders which are slightly lower and the elbows which are in between lines 2 and 3. Here's a small guide to what every division results in: 1-> chin 2-> where the ribs end between 2 and 3 -> the elbows & belly button just below 3 -> crotch and wrists 4-> fingertips 5-> knees 6-> bottom half of calf muscles 7-> ankles 7.5 -> soles of feet   STEP 8. Draw the outline of the body by taking into consideration the guidelines. Don't forget that women have their bodies made of oval, softer shapes while men have their bodies made of trapezoid, angular shapes.   STEP 9. Add the hair and you're all done! Voila! Your female front view is finished!   STEP 10. Now for a 3/4 side view and striking a pose. Draw a circle and this time make the chin face a side: left or right. Let's try drawing it facing left. You can use a triangle-like shape as a guideline.   STEP 11. Draw an arch that begins at the tip of the head and ends at the chin. This will be a guide for the eyes, nose and mouth and represents the middle of the front view of the head, but viewed in 3/4.   STEP 12. Draw the guides for the eyes by drawing 2 lines and then draw the eyes.   STEP 13. Draw another 2 guidelines and add the nose and the mouth. The ears will be drawn using these guides as well since the ears have the same size as the space between these lines.   STEP 14. Next are the shoulders and torso. Draw these by using lines for the bones and outlines of the shape, and circles for the joints.   STEP 15. The same step for the arms. Don't forget that the forearm and the arm are the same size as the head!   STEP 16. For the hands use trapezoids and triangles as basic shapes. The palm is shaped like a trapezoid and the thumb and other 4 fingers are shaped like triangles.   STEP 17. The same steps for the hips and crotch. Remember that women are wide and curvy in this region!   STEP 18. Repeat the same steps for the legs. Observe the proportions! The size of the torso plus hips is the same as the region between the knee to the hip.   STEP 19. For the feet use polygonal shapes taking into consideration the ankles, heels, and the pads of the feet.   STEP 20. Next add the hair and clothes. The clothes shouldn't stick to the body unless they are extremely tight. Use the shape of the body to draw them and don't forget to add folds! Congratulations! You're finished.   Step 1. Step 2.
