Here is a careful explanation of how to draw an anime girl, with the ability to make simple changes to the drawing to turn her into a boy, and leave it open as desired by the painter.

  • The beginning is by drawing a semicircle in the middle of the paper, making the opening of the semicircle towards the bottom, and it is not required that the semicircle be perfect or accurate.
  • With a ruler, two vertical and horizontal lines intersecting in the middle are drawn in the middle of the semicircle, as these two lines help to draw the contours of the face.

“Begin by drawing the chin from the extension point of the end of the semicircle with the horizontal line, then go diagonally towards the vertical line from the ends of the semicircle.”

  • As for the features of the face, such as the eyes, they are drawn by planning two oval shapes above the horizontal line, so that each shape is drawn on one side of the semicircle, taking into account taking equal dimensions and distances for both eyes from the lines surrounding them.
  •  The ears are drawn on the outer sides of the semicircle, bearing in mind that the top of the ear is at the same level with the highest angle of the tilt of the semicircle, and that the lowest point of the ear touches the extension of the horizontal line outside the semicircle.

  •  Both legs are drawn so that they are identical in shape, making the upper part wider than the rest of the legs, and the emergence of the location of the knee by drawing it arched, with the completion of drawing the feet.
  •  Drawing the arm is by drawing curved lines in the shoulder area, then defining the arm downward, creating curvature of the elbow and completing the drawing of the arms, hands and fingers.
