This lesson on how to draw a boy will be done in a style close to chibi. This is a style close to anime, but different in that chibi characters have childish proportions and are drawn in a very simplified way.

But you can of course make the boy more realistic. To do this, slightly reduce the size of the head and increase the size of the body.

At the very end of the guide, it will be necessary to color the finished drawing. You can use the palette from my example or come up with your own colors.

So let’s start the tutorial!
