Step 1

First of, you need a refrence pic, or the picture you going to draw. But make sure you credit the original artist who made it.


Step 2

Make a basic sketch of the pose.



Step 3

The next part will be more detailed, so put it on another layer and lighten the basic sketch


Step 4

Here's how i made the hair. Make sure you have your ref right next to the canvas.


Step 5

The third layer is even more detailed than the last. Remember, it doesn't have to be perfect, it's only a sketch.



Step 6

Time for inking! When mangakas (manga artists) draw, they use a pen and nib. To get that effect, darken over some areas like the ones circled.


Step 7

This is what the final product looks like! Hope you learned something.
