    Drawing anime?

    Firstly sorry if this is in the wrong area, it seemed like the graphics area was more for computer art.

    Anyway, I have just started drawing animé ( well that's what I'm calling it )
    and basically I was just wondering if anyone has got tips for drawing animé?

    I have looked at the many tuts online and I just cant manage to get it "right".

    I'm just working on faces for now. If you want to see what needs improving, my work can be seen Here

    Thanks for any tips

    Jake

    work on the hardest part first such as the eyes then shape and craft the head around them and then craft the bodies around that once you become a better artist then estimating where things go come natural i am in commercial arts program and we have to learn to draw and learn to use photoshop otherwise we fail that class

    Nice to see someone else getting into the art of anime. =D
    Well Your drawings look alot better than mine when I first started.
    (I used to draw ears right next to there eyes. -__-...)
    But I say you should find an artist you really like and look at what they do.
    Sometimes it helps just to look at something and draw it when first starting off and learn what they do.
    Then go into drawing your own characters when your confident enough. =]

    drawing is easy when you draw something you like cuz you try and put your all into it so you could make it nice just practice everyday.
    I've lost everything I once held dear to me all i have felt is hope and with it I''ll push myself forward and follow the even ending stream of life.....

    Well, practice drawing each element individualy; for example: practice drawing eyes; add more characters/features to the eyes(shades, reflexion, ...etc)
    I recomend you to make the eyes bigger & try using other hairstyles, anyway, practice & practice till you improve! Good luck!

    Yes it is better that you break the process apart. I also started with the face then moved to the whole head but the hardest part of me and still is drawing the hands that is the one thing that always give me problems. So just keep drawing i've been drawing anime for 4 years but what I have so far is pretty crapy. I recomend you draw something that has already been drawn up. Like get a pic off the internet and just re-draw it that is how I got started and remember don't just draw anime draw other things you like to draw like i draw planes and cars from time to time.
    I don't know if anything i've said is of use if not i'm sorry.
    Well I hope any of this help.
