STEP 1. Start with drawing some simple guidelines and shapes to form a workable frame for your kimono and model. Draw head shapes and facial guidelines. You will then draw out the guidelines to form the shape and position of the body pose. Once this is done you can draw the outlined shape of her long flowing hair.   STEP 2. You will start this step by sketching out the long hair style on the models and then add some detailing as well. Once that is done you can sketch out the shape of the faces and then draw the beginning shape of the arm and hand.   STEP 3. You will detail and define the hair styles for the two models and then you can sketch in their pretty faces. Of course they look like manga/anime characters. Once their faces are sketched out you can then start drawing the shape of torso and the kimono. Also draw the shape of the kimono sleeves on both girls and then add detail and definition as well.   STEP 4. You will sketch out the torso of the models half body in the upper left hand corner, and then sketch out the obi sash on the kimono in the middle. Here is where you will add the designing to the sash. Once your design patteren is drawn out you can sketch out the length and width of the kimono. Move to the next step to see what you need to draw next.   STEP 5. Well here is your last drawing step and all you have to do is finish sketching out the kimono and then draw the models feet. Once that is done sketch out the kimono sleeve and then add detail and definition. Draw the hand and then start erasing all the guidelines and shapes that you drew in step one.   STEP 6. Here is what your awesome sketch looks like when you are done. Color it in and that is it. I hope you had fun joining me with this tutorial on "how to draw a kimono step by step".   Step 1. Step 2.
