Anime, Japanese cartoons, started in the early 1900s. After Walt Disney’s films and Betty Boop cartoons gained worldwide popularity, the modern anime form began. Larger eyes and accentuated features such as muscles and breasts started making the anime style more distinctive. Since the early 1980s, the style has steadily gained steam in the U.S. and is now a widely known drawing style.
Things You Will Need
Decide if you want to create a male or female character.
Draw a face, beginning with a circle. On the bottom half of the circle, draw half of an oval. This will be the the chin. Erase the bottom side of the circle. Now, there should be a circle going into an oval point.
Draw elongated eyes that are larger than normal size. Most anime-style eyes are wider and bigger. You have total freedom when drawing hairstyles. Some of the most famous anime characters, such as Goku from “Dragonball Z,” have hair that sticks straight up.
