Step 1

Hello! Welcome to the tutorial I promised you all! How to draw manga boys! Let's start off with manga boy eyes! Male characters eyes in manga are generally more pointy and narrow.They are of course in many variations, some more cute-ish for younger,or more loli-shota charas. On the left are some examples.


Step 2

As per manga boy bodies: (Yeah I know I fail at it...) So basically, unlike female characters, male charas have a wider shoulder are than their hip area. Male charas tend to be taller and slimmer with squarer shoulders and more prominent collar bones. Usually at least half a head taller than female charas.



Step 3

So, for heads, the chin should be more square and it should stick out more from a side view.Male manga heads tend to be more long and chiseled (if you will). Ears start usual around the bottom of the eyes level end end around mid-nose level. ^^


Step 4

Hair: Manga boy hair tends to be shaggy or spikey, but it is generally not- too long and it can be quite short at times. This section is pretty self explanatory, you sorta gotta experiment with different styles, maybe looks towards your favourite male manga charas for starters and go from there. Also, male manga hands and feet tend to be bulkier. This concludes my tutorial! I hope you enjoyed and Good luck! Please leave me a profile comment on your feedback! Thanks! Bye! ♥
