In my opinion you can't actually learn to draw, either you have it or you haven't got it...

Try practasing your favourite Anime characters every day, you'll soon find that it gets easier and easier. Then you will be able to draw your own characters.

i would start of by tracing anime characters then i would start taking the anime characters i trace and try and draw them just by looking at em..then i would try drawing my own anime characters..

when you mean draw favourite character, do you mean drawing it oevr and over again, like looking at the picture?

yes thats what I mean.

If you want to practise by sitting at your computer, then look at some desktop pictures of the characters, and collect several pictures of different positions.

after a few weeks, just try and draw without the pictures

Perhaps more help will be available in the Art Gallery section.

I agree with what someone else said, you either have the talent to draw or you don't. Just look at a picture of something you like and draw it! You'll know if you should continue. Then search out books on that might give you helpful pointers.

I have to desagree with you...
Ive witness that you can learn how to paint and get pretty nioce result howerver it will take much more time than if you have natural talent for the thing.

Have you tried looking at this site?

When I was trying to learn this style, I found a few other sites that were helpful. I'll try to track them down for ya. Smile

www.polykarbon.com

is one of the best ones around. Loads of links and resources and most importantly tutorials!

^ That's one of the sites I used when I was learning, actually, but I learned the most by looking at their gallery. The characters were often in all sorts of crazy, difficult poses and the images said a lot on their own about texture and detail that wasn't always mentioned in the tutorials.

I visited the site after you posted the link, and I'm sad to see their gallery is still littered with broken links Sad I noticed those a few months ago. Sad. But the tutorials do seem to be intact.

It features :

Drawing Anime Faces .
Colouring Anime Stuff .

Practicing forms and functions of traditional art is ALWAYS the best place to start. Only if because that way, you aren't stuck just drawing the same stuff over and over. You'll know how to draw from your imagination, as well as life. Sadly, most people that are given this advice turn it down looking for a quick fix. Sad

For me, it was all about learning the basics of human anatomy, and the different ways in which the body moved, etc. and LATER ON learning the features of manga and anime. That way, I already had a grasp of what it was that made up the characters, and I could more easily get my ideas down on the page.

That said, there ARE some folks out there who make tutorials for the basics of anime drawing.

Polykarbon, as mentioned above, will help you out more than most sites, because they lay down the same guidelines used in more traditional art (although, more simplified, if course ^^).

Another site I found a while back is http://www.howtodrawmanga.com/tutorial.html

They should have a few good lessons for human anatomy, as well as key anime features.

Good luck, and post some stuff when you feel confident enough!

I'm an animation major and that means I draw.. A LOT.

My last assignment I had to hand draw 400 frames of a dancer.

I started drawing when I was in 10th grade and I picked it up pretty fast because all i would doodle in class all day. Then I started drawing pictures of my teachers and other people in my class until I got to where I am now.

is my latest work. Right now I have to link it to my friends site. But once I get enough posts I plan on making an entire site devoted to Andy the Handicop.

hey thanks for the tip about tracing them - i think my drawing is coming along a bit better too!

It seems to be possible for people to aquire drawing skills. Most major bookstores carry books on drawing anime or cartoon characters. They have ways for you to learn part by part. That may help you.

I've been drawing since I learned not to eat crayons.

That being said, I know my techniques need refined, and I honestly can't wait till I start classes at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh this January. I'm going for Graphic Design.

Well you can also visit http://www.saveloomis.org/ and read up on how to sketch. Since this section of the forum is actually for display-ing artwork I guess it would be more prudent to lock this thread.

Have a Nice Day !
