This tutorial illustrates how to draw anime and manga hair with twelve step by step drawings of common anime and manga hairstyles for a female character. Anime hair is often based on real hairstyles but tends to be drawn in clumps rather than individual strands. One good reason for this is that if you are drawing multiple frames of animation or multiple panels of a manga it will simply be too time consuming to draw anything overly detailed.
How to Draw Anime Characters Tutorial. Long straight hair is probably one of the most common hairstyles in anime and is fairly easy to draw. You can apply a similar breakdown to drawing other hairstyles as well. Thinking of the hair this way can make the drawing process a lot easier to manage. Start by first making a drawing of the head and an indication of the hairline. For this particular hairstyle where the front section of the hair has been cut fairly short you can draw it in relatively small pointy clumps.
You can also split it into several smaller clumps towards the ends. Erase the parts of the head hidden by the hair and add a few lines to show the inner folds of the front and back hair. You will generally want to position these folds in between the hair clumps as that is where these will usually tend to form in real hair. You can also add some basic shading to make the hair stand out a little bit more once you finish the line drawing. The short hair drawing example above is fairly similar to the long hair with the hair once again broken down into three basic parts of front, sides and back.
Again start the short hair drawing with the head and hairline. Same as the example the hairline will not be as important here as it is in other hair styles but can still be helpful. For this particular example the hair will be a bit more messy so the clumps will curve more in different directions. If you want neater looking hair you can draw them the same as the first example. Same as before erase any parts of the head hidden by the hair and draw the bottom portion of the back hair.
For a neat look the different hair clumps should generally be drawn pointing in the same direction as the clumps next to them and any shifts in direction should be gradual. Start by drawing the hair and indicating the hairline. For the initial drawing of the actual hair you can start with the sides followed by the back.
You can indicate the front section of the hair with just one line. Now draw in some small splits into the front and side parts of of the hair to make them look more natural. Erase the line in between the splits when you are done. You can also erase any parts of the head that are covered by the hair. Try and draw these with fairly random spacing and slightly varying curves. If you space everything evenly and make all the curves trace one another too closely the hair will not look very natural.
The long messy hair is somewhat similar to the first example but with some extra hair clumps. Again it can be divided up into three parts like all the other examples so far. As the other examples start by first drawing the head and hairline. To make the hair look more messy draw the front hair clumps pointing into different directions and of varying shapes and curves. You can draw some that are wavy and some that juts curve in one direction.
Draw the very middle portion of these clumps reaching further down. You can do the same with the outer clumps on the sides of the front section. This will again give more of an impression of hair that has not been well groomed. Now draw in some additional hair clumps randomly sticking out of the back sections of the hair. This will make the otherwise neat looking back hair look messy as well. You can either erase the outlines of the hair where you want to draw these or add them and erase the overlapping outline afterwards.
Next you can add in some split lines in between the hair clumps same as some of the other examples. To finish the line drawing again erase the parts of the face and head that are covered by the hair afterwards. You can also make them a bit more wavy than the other examples to again make the hair look more messy. Another fairly common anime hairstyle is the ponytail. You will notice that there is basically no side hair in this particular example other than the tiny bits of the hairline on the sides.
So the hair can pretty much just be splits into the front and back sections. The back consisting of the hair over the top of the head and the pony tail. Draw the head and indicate the hairline which for this hairstyle is slightly more important than the examples as some of it will be visible in the final drawing as already shown. You can pretty much frame the front hair for this hairstyle with just three curves. Two for the sides and one for the bottom.
As mentioned there is very little side hair in this example as the hair is pulled back revealing parts of the hairline. Otherwise the pony tail can just look like a bump on the head. You can draw the pony tail with a sort of question mark like shape. You can also add a small split at the end. Also erase the parts of the head hidden by the hair. You can again give the hair some light shading if you like.
For the hairstyle with hair over one eye you can yet again split the hair into the front, sides and back. For this particular hairstyle draw the front hair clumps going far enough down the face to fully cover one eye. Draw the back hair split into tow curves that pretty much hug the shape of the head as they go down eventually sticking out in clumps to each side. For the very bottom section of the front hair draw a few small clumps sticking out around the top of the neck area. Erase any overlapping lines from the head that should be hidden by the hair when you are done.
To wrap up the drawing you can again add a few lines to show some splits and curves of the hair going from between the hair clumps. The pigtails are another very common style of anime hair. Same as the ponytail example you can see that this particular drawing can pretty much be broken down into the front and back section of the hair. Draw the head and the hairline. In this example a large section of the hairline will be visible in the final drawing.
It will also help us place the front section of the hair. Though most of the hair in this particular example will be pulled back you can draw some clumps for the front section of the hair to just one side to make the hairstyle look a little bit more interesting. As already mentioned there will pretty much be no side hair other than the tiny bits around the top of the ears. Now add some random hair clumps sticking out from the pigtails to make them look a little more interesting and erase any overlapping lines that this creates.
Add a few more lines to indicate some folds in the hair to the pigtails and optionally some shading. This hairstyle can again be split into three parts with the front, side and back hair. The front section of the hair however is a little different from the examples.
Draw the head and hairline. The hairline in this example will be particularly useful for placing the front part of the hair. Draw the side sections of the hair with steady cures somewhat hugging the shape of the face. Draw the back hair with a fairly obvious split in the middle with two curves going in each direction. This will help show that the hair has sort of been neatly combed to each side.
Finally you can add a little clump of hair hanging down from the middle of the front section of the hair. This will make the hairstyle look a little more natural and interesting. Finally add some fold lines to the front sections of the hair going to the sides to help show that the hair is tucked underneath there.Anime girl tied up base
