Step 1 – Draw the Overall Shape of the Female Body
Rules to follow when drawing an anime character: Everything must be the correct size or your character will appear odd; certain styles may intentionally exaggerate certain proportions (such as the large anime eyes), but there are still rules to follow that you can practice on at home.
Drawing the Head
See http://www.brainchild.com/artwork/anime-heads-and-faces/ for more information on drawing anime heads and faces.
Drawing the Body
When drawing the front view, the body should have the shape of an hourglass; if we were doing a more realistic style, the body would be about the width of two heads side by side; however, since we are drawing anime, the head should be slightly larger than that, so the body will be smaller.
Drawing the Arms
Start at the shoulders and work your way down, using circles to indicate the position of the joints. For more information on proportions and how to draw the arms, see How to Draw Anime.
Drawing the Legs
The legs should be about half the length of the entire body, and the feet should be as long as the distance between the wrists and the elbow. You’ll notice that the feet in the front view go slightly past the bottom vertical alignment line, which is because the person’s feet would reach closer to the viewer if she rotated on the spot.
Step 2 – Clean Up Your Drawing
After you’ve established the basic shape of the body, clean up your drawing and add in some minor details like the neck collar bones and a hint of the knees in the front view.
What is still life drawing?
Still life drawings are depictions of non-living objects arranged in a specific way to convey meaning or create a visual effect. Common still life objects include flowers, fruits, vegetables, and other foods and beverages, as well as dead animals (such as wild game and fish).
