How To Draw Manga Sad
The super popular art style of japanese Chibi and Manga can be a little daunting, but it definitely doesn't need to be. In this video, Kyle will show you how to draw a simple manga style face with a sad expression.
Hi. I'm Kyle, I'm an illustrator, and I'm going to take you through some tips on drawing manga and chibi. I'm going to show you how to draw a manga face, and this time I'm going to do a sad character.
So I've just marked out where the face comes on the head. If you haven't drawn a manga head before, it's a nice big circle, dividing line where the ears meet up, neck attached on to the base of the skull, some big curved lines there for the side of the jaw. I'm just going to mark out where the eyes are.
If you're going for really big expressions, you can really push how big the eyes are, but it sometimes shows more skills to try and get the emotions across with smaller eyes. It's up to you though, however you want to draw it. So we're going to think about the brow line here, just think about how someone's face moves and how someone's face falls when they are sad.
So we're going to have the brows raised, and these are just sketching basics here. Just going to start marking in the eyes. The upper eyelid would be raised just a little bit.
Have the lower eyelid signifier is also an upward bending line. Just think about how the eye looks when someone is sad. It's best to get a bit of reference, draw from life, have a little mirror with you when you're drawing.
Have a look at how you do look when your face falls in to these expressions. Think about how sad they are, you could ever draw tears starting in the corners of their eyes- you see that usually signified as just a little circle in the corner of the eye. I'm just going to draw it like that, maybe a couple in the corner of the eye of this manga.
You tend to see quite a lot of shine in the eye as the eye tears up as well, so I'm just going to put that in. So obviously, when people are really upset, you tend to see the nostril flare a little bit, but when you've got such simply drawn noses like a lot of anime and manga stuff, it's really not quite as feasible, so we'll leave the nose as it is, just showing that shade just down the side of it just showing you where it sits on the face. Just down from there, we're going to have a line for the lip.
Sometimes, you'll see characters with the mouth open just ever so slightly, just showing their teeth a little bit, it's not like a grimace or anything, just capturing that moment of sadness there. The line actually goes.I'll just draw it to the side here, the mouth is actually usually drawn quite small, and that line actually goes just outwards a little bit- not too much, just a little bit. And that lower lip actually curves in just a little bit- imagine that that lips is almost trembling a little bit.
Around things like the tears you don't want too hard a line around those, you want quite soft outlines. We'll just tighten everything else up a little bit, and also just slight signifies of the brow just knotting a little bit. There we go.
Just tidy the rest of it up a little bit, and there you go, about done. That's your manga face, with a sad expression. .
