STEP 1. This is just a sketch that I drew of all the different types of manga heads that you can learn how to draw. Of course I will not be giving you a lesson on all seven heads, but you can always alter your manga head to your liking from a style you see here. My two favorites is the second one on top, and the first one on the bottom.   STEP 2. This is some different perspectives on the various sizes of male and female manga heads. As you can see the male head is always slightly bigger than the female head.   STEP 3. Here I explain the differences between the eye positions of both manga male and female faces. I also talk about how a woman's face shape has more curves and ridges than a mans.   STEP 4. Now we will begin the actual lesson. Start by drawing two circles. In these shapes add the facial guidelines.   STEP 5. Now you will begin sketching, then drawing out the shapes of the manga eyes like you see here. Draw the nostril holes as well. Can you guess which head model is the female?   STEP 6. Now you will add the eyebrows, and then completely sketch out the rest of the manga eyes including the pupils and all. When that is done you can draw in the mouths, and lip indents.   STEP 7. Can you guess which one is the girl? If you pointed to the head model to the left, you are right. You will now begin sketching out the hair styles. As you can see the female manga head has long, straight hair with parted bangs. Sketch out the shape of her face, and then add the blush marks on her cheeks. For the boy, do the same thing. He too has parted bangs. When the faces are sketched out you can add a nose tip.   STEP 8. Okay, it's time to finish sketching out their hairstyles, and then their ears. Once this is done you can move to the next step which is also your last.   STEP 9. To make this boy complete, all you have to do is draw out the shape of his neck, and shirt collar. Add some detailing to the neck, and then you can start erasing the lines and shapes you drew in step one that you used to guide you through this lesson.   STEP 10. When you are done your sketch on how to draw manga heads is complete. Color them in, or use them on your next manga characters.   Step 1. Step 2. Step 3. Step 4. Step 5. Step 6. Step 7. Step 8.
