Description: Well, here it is the last lesson for the day which makes a total of six new uploaded lessons. To finish things off, I thought a nice hand drawn sketched tutorial on 'how to sketch anime', step by step would be a fantastic lesson to follow. As I have told you before, my recent drawings on paper have been extremely fun for me because I actually get to draw on a sheet of sketching paper, using an old fashioned pencil and eraser. I thought long and hard about what I should make a tutorial out of, and after careful thought, I finally came to terms with making an awesome sketch based anime drawing. Sketching anime is a bit different than actually drawing characters using a straight stroke. Whenever you sketch any type of person, object, animal, or even cartoon, the drawing is almost always going to look different. Sketching is an art, just as drawing and painting is an art. There is so many different types of artists out there that have their own labels. For instance, if you are an artist that works mostly on the computer using a tablet, you would fall under the digital artist group. There is also a cartoon artist, anime/manga artist, artists that specialize in drawing animals, realistic artists, and of course the sketch artist. I am far from being a sketch artist because I mainly do all my drawings on the computer using a drawing tablet. Sketching or drawing on paper is something that I enjoy doing on a daily basis just to keep things fresh and new for me. The worst part to being someone who draws all the time is getting bored with drawing in general. Anyways, this lesson on 'how to sketch anime' should be all you need to creating a perfect drawing of an anime character with ease. I will be back tomorrow with more new lessons for you all, but I will also come back around eight o'clock as I will be drawing live for you all. Have a fun time everyone, and remember to keep the requests coming in. Adios amigos!
