Hi. My name's Erik. I'm an artist and I'm going to show you how to draw a Chibi character. Now, a Chibi character is just like an Anime character but it's, it's little like a little kid. So, it's only about two heads tall in approximate height. So, let's just start with one head here. And let's just guesstimate that's a head here. I might make it actually smaller just to add to its cartoonishness. Now, a Chibi character has huge eyes, enormous, bigger than a normal Anime character. So, let's just start with some cheek lines here and here. And let's come up with huge eyes. A huge eye over here. And then a lot of them don't actually have noses, just for a, it's a weird cuteness thing. Just add the smile there. Add some teeth, add a tongue. And then let's add some big kiddish ears, and a giant couple of circles here. Put in the right there and there and some clear. His teeth look a little too sinister for what I'm after, so take those out, and there. OK. Now, let's add a body to that. Come down to start with this, add some arms. Now, let's add some little, let's put some shorts on this one. Add some feet, with a stuff foam rabbit's head on there. And let's add some hair. And that is how you draw a Chibi character.
