Hey guys, Chris here and today I'm going to show you how to draw an anime Buddha. So what I'm going to do is I'm going to start off with the head here and let's start off by doing almost like a half circle just like that and then of course he's got some cheeks so I'm going to bring these out like this and the bottom of the chin. So now we have the basic outline of the face. Usually a traditional Buddha has like a bun on the top of his head so I'm just going to do a little bit of a small bun there and you can color it in like that if you want and then for the hair I'm just going to kind of put some squiggly lines like that and follow that top. And then he's got some ears of course. For the eyes I'm going to make them a little bit squinty because he's really happy and a smile of course and a big nose. And then I'm going to do the body. For the body I'm just going to start off with doing two shoulders just like that, maybe one hand just kind of up so I'm going to square off this hand here. There's his thumb and then complete with the inside of the armpit there and the other side maybe his hand is just kind of going down just in front of him and there's his armpit there. Now we're going to do the belly so we're just going to do a big arc that kind of goes across just like that and then for the top of the pectoral muscles you're going to just kind of bring it up like that and then for the bottom of the belly just do a big swoop that kind of starts here, then goes along just like that. We're going to draw a belly button and then for this foot, just bring the knee down like that and then on this side bring it around like that. The foot goes in like that and if you want you can use whatever color that you have and you can kind of draw maybe he's got like a shawl line or something and just kind of color that in opaque but if you want to just keep it simple you can also just forget about the shawl this is just kind of something extra that you can kind of throw in. And then if you want to do some folds for where the pants are. Alright guys and there you go. That's your basic anime Buddha. Good luck and stay creative.
