Black Anime Girl Drawing – How to draw a black person in an anime style
Drawing anime is a lot of fun and very rewarding. And while it might seem like an impossible task at first, I promise that with the right tools and technique, you’ll be able to sketch any anime character in no time!
Start by drawing a circle to indicate the basic shape of the head
To get started, you’ll want to draw a circle that represents the size of your character’s head. This is a good way to ensure that everything else you draw will be proportional. If you don’t have access to rulers and templates, just use your best judgment when drawing this circle!
Once this first step is done, move on to step 2 below:
Step 2: Draw the eyes and mouth Now that you have a circle to work with, it’s time to begin sketching the rest of your character’s facial features. First draw two dots for the eyes, then draw a line connecting them together at an angle. Make sure that both of these lines are roughly parallel! Next, draw another line on top of this one but slightly higher up so that it forms an upside down V shape. This will help create dimension in your character’s face by showing where they’re looking at.
Add lines to outline the jaw, cheekbones and chin.
Draw a line across the circle to indicate your character’s jaw. Then add two curved lines on either side of this line at an angle that matches your reference image. These will represent where her cheeks will be located in relation to her face shape; make sure they are parallel with each other, but not too close together or too far apart (about 1/4 inch apart). Last but not least, add another curved line beneath those two so that it comes up from just below them–this is where your character’s chin should be located!
Draw a small circle on each side of your character’s face to show where their eyes will be. You can do this freehand, or you can use a template.
Now you’re ready to draw your character’s eyes. Draw a small circle on each side of their face to show where their eyes will be. You can do this freehand, or you can use a template for more accuracy.
If you are using a template, first trace around the outer edge of the eye shape onto your paper with pencil or pen (try not to smudge it). Then fill in the rest with black marker or paint if desired, then erase any extra lines from around the edges once dry!
Extend the bottom half of your character’s jaw so that it ends in two curves, like parentheses around the mouth area.
- Draw the bottom half of your character’s jaw as two curves that encircle the mouth area.
- Extend the top half of your character’s nose so that it ends in two curves, like parentheses around the eyes and eyebrows area.
- Draw an oval shape for each eye and then add smaller ovals inside those ovals to create highlights on each iris (the colored part). If you don’t know what irises look like, just draw circles with dots in them! It will still look great!
- Add some eyelashes by drawing small lines coming out from behind each eyeball towards its outer corner; these lines should curve upward slightly as they approach their destination point at which point they should bend back down again before continuing on toward said destination point.*
Draw two vertical lines below the circle for eyes, and make sure to leave space for eyebrows on either side of them.
Draw two vertical lines below the circle for eyes, and make sure to leave space for eyebrows on either side of them. Eyes are usually larger than they appear in real life, so don’t be afraid to make them big! You can also draw them at an angle instead of straight on (as shown above).
Use diagonal markings from each corner inwards to create almond-shaped eyes and eyebrows.
- Use a ruler to help you draw straight lines.
- Draw the eyes in a circle first, then extend the lines outwards.
- Make sure the eyes are symmetrical and that they are the same distance apart.
- Draw the eyebrows in a similar way to how you did with your own face (if it helps, draw an outline of yourself and place this over your drawing).
Go back over all these lines with very light strokes when you’re done so that they’re easy to see, but don’t erase them completely. This will make it easier if you need to go back over any areas later on in the process.
Now that you’ve drawn the outline of your character, it’s time to go back over it with very light strokes. This will make it easier if you need to go back over any areas later on in the process.
Drawing is a process and an art form, so there’s no need for perfection right away! You can always fix mistakes later on as long as they aren’t too noticeable or distracting from your overall drawing.
Takeaway – Drawing anime isn’t hard if you have patience and practice!
So, what’s the takeaway from this tutorial? Drawing anime isn’t hard if you have patience and practice! Drawing anime is a great way to express your creativity, and it can make you a better artist. If you want to learn how to draw in an anime style, start off by drawing simple shapes and lines until you get comfortable with the basics. Then move onto more complex drawings like faces and bodies by breaking them down into simpler forms that build up into more complicated shapes as we did here with our black girl character who was modeled after me 🙂 Hope this helps!
Don’t be discouraged if your first couple drawings aren’t perfect! The key is to keep practicing and experimenting until you find your style–and that means trying new things all the time.
