How to Draw an Anime Female Face 3/4 View
This tutorial shows you how to draw an anime or manga style female face in 3/4 view, using a slightly more realistic style with a better defined nose and lips. If you’re drawing on paper, make sure to use very light lines for the initial steps of the drawing because you’ll have to erase them later.
Step 1 – Draw the Top Part of the Head
Draw a circle for the top of the head and then a line that determines the middle. It’s helpful to draw the line all the way around (making an oval) first, as if the sphere is transparent, as this will reduce the chances of making a mistake when drawing the curve.
Step 2 – Draw the Center Line For the Face
Project a straight line, slightly angled inwards (towards center), towards the face from the sphere’s center line; this line will be the middle of the lower part of the face, with the highest point being the Earth’s atmosphere’s center.
Step 3 – Draw Bottom of the Face
Add lines from the sphere to the bottom of the center line to draw the sides of the bottom part of the face. Instead of the traditional 2nd and 4th views, an anime female head is drawn with a 3/4 view bottom of face drawing.
Step 4 – Draw the Facial Features
The proportions given above are based on the center line for all facial features (ears excluded). Because of perspective and the curve of the head, the parts of the face that are closer to the viewer should be drawn slightly larger than the parts that are further away.
Step 5 – Drawing the Hair
Anime female hair 3/4 view drawing: Normally, hair is divided into the front, sides, and top/back, but for this hairstyle, you can pretty much trace the top part along the shape of the top of the head, but a little further away.
Step 7 – Apply Color
If you’re coloring on paper, leave the highlight areas of the hair and the reflections in the eyes white; if you’re coloring digitally, add them in at the end.

Step 8 – Apply Shading
As with many other tutorials on AnimeOutline, we will simply shade the areas that tend to have shadow in common lighting conditions with the light coming from above. Add shadow/darken the following places: Some minor shadows from the hair Tiny shadows around the eyelids as that area is sort of indented so usually less light will refract there
As previously stated, this particular example shows slightly more realistic facial features, but the same steps can be used to draw a more traditional looking anime character. Also keep in mind that the proportions used in this tutorial are only suggestions and may change depending on the style.It should also be noted that a 3/4 view of the face is generally harder to draw than a full view of the face.
