Sample text

Although not every Kawaii character is drawn with extrathick lines, many are. A thicker line makes the character look flatter, which, in turn, makes it look more stylish. It also pushes the needle a few notches higher on the Cute-OMeter. This approach further carves out the unique identity of Kawaii. Apply the initial colors. Color themes vary according to the genre. This happy girl gets cheery colors, whereas a gothic girl would get a whole different color treatment. Adding highlights and shadows to the colors is optional but effective.

At the beginning, focus on laying out the “cute essentials” and proportions for these entertaining figures. If the construction is cute, then the finished version will be cute, whether it is a gothic or an innocentlooking character. BEGINNER VERSION 1. Hairdo has no personality or style, and there isn’t enough hair. 2. Shoulders are too broad. 3. Whoa! The neck is way too long. 4. Kawaii-style chibis don’t get narrower at the waist. 5. You can only get away with supersimplified arms without hands if the body is supersimplified too.

QUICK TIP You don’t need to draw a perfect circle. Lots of artists draw them freehand. But if you want to try drawing characters with perfect circles, then I suggest purchasing something called a template at any art store or from an online art store. They’re really inexpensive, because each one is just a piece of plastic. Templates come in all different sizes of circles that you can trace. eye types The most common eye type for Kawaii characters—humans, animals, or fantasy creatures—are dots; that is, black circles.
