Hi, my name is Jessica and I'm an artist. And today we are going to work on drawing a manga person. So basically you want to just start with a face cause that's like the really important part. And you draw like kind of a tiny chin. So you got like kind of a bigger head. And it comes down to a small kind of pointy chin. And actually you know you can even go a little bit pointier. Make it almost like a sort of a strawberry shaped face like that. And really the key I find there are a few keys in drawing a manga person, sorry about that. The first thing is the bangs. Right, if their bangs are kind of spiky that's like half the battle. The other part is their eyes. They have these big giant eyes. Always. And we've got usually this kind of like a line at the top or bottom and then there's a connecting sort of side there. We've got big irises and then their pupils. And a lot times you are going to see shading in the eyes as well. Just like little light sources to make them really look very bright. A couple of eye lashes. Usually there's no nose or just a little tiny nose. And they have these kind of weird like circles under their eyes like that. I don't really know what that's about but I know that they are usually there. And then they have a big happy smile like so. They're always very happy characters. And then you can do their hair. Give them a little tiny neck. And the rest of their body you can just draw the way that you would any normal person. Maybe give them a cute outfit cause manga people are always dressed in really cute outfits. That's one thing I noticed about them. And there you go. That is how you draw a manga person.
