Somewhat recently, I came across a new way of drawing that caught my eye. Can you guess what that was? It was realjsric drawing. I've probably said it once, but it, again, will help you with correct proportions for humans. This will help you with your character development!

By creating depth you can make your drawings seem more realistic to others. Even in anime, 3 dimensional backgrounds and objects are drawn. Even having shadows make your picture seem more realistic. Although, anime is basically implied, it may also be somewhat realistic.

There are different ways of drawing the eyebrow. These different ways are used to show different expressions. For example, if the eyebrow is closer to the eye, and it is curving upward, with stress lines/wrinkles underneath, then that character is most likely mad or angry.
If the eyebrow is at a regular ark, then the person is usually happy.

For example, I suck at drawing hands (i manage to do so sometimes, but other times, it just looks terrible), so I'll keep drawing hands, maybe draw a whole sheet on just hands, until I can do it efficiently.
Remember, Practice makes perfect! and start stepping out of your safety zones!

We've all have had one of those days before! Just be sure not to take too long of a break, because you're skill will drop, dramatically. (trust me, it happened to me numerous times).
Hope this helps!

Bobby is just an example, by the way.
In the color wheel, the color that is directly across is the color's compliment. For example, blue and orange are complimentary colors.
If you use the complimentary colors, you can make the colors look balanced.

If you think that everything you draw looks somewhat the same, its time to chang it up a little. How do i do that? You can do this in a variety of ways:
Method 1: watching more anime and focusing on the way the characters look will help you get a better idea of what you want to draw. For example on the anime called "bleach" there is a character named orehime. I think she has a well drawn body (not trying to be perverted or anything ha ha). You can draw a female body similar to orehime's.
Method 2: draw different poses. Drawing the same pose becomes boring after a while. Learn tondraw a body from profile (the side view) or from behind.
Method 3: color and shade with different colors that you don't really use, such as green. Color everything with a shade or tint of green.
Good luck! have fun.
Well.. this blog is supposed to be a helper with drawing anime. So, most people would ask why there an anatomy video.. the video is supposed to teach you more about real eyes, to help you draw an anime eye. When you start drawing from human anatomy, it becomes easier to draw anime.

For you all that do not know how to properly use sharpies: (Don't be ashamed, I sucked at the beginning -.-)
- Sketch your drawing. This is what is called a plan. Remember?
- Start actually drawing, and make sure you have all the lines that you are willing to keep on the paper. The other sray marks you should erase
- Take your sharpie and outline
- Darken certain parts of your drawing (Ex. Darken the eyes or the lower strands of hair)

The method is basically watching real anime series', or reading real mangas. This method will help you to better picture how your drawings could look like. The method will also help you brainstorm new ideas of how to move your created character around on paper, OR it could give you better ideas of facial expressions.
May sound crappy, but the method works. Try starting out with action or romance anime, they have a lot to offer. Some examples include: Naruto, Bleach, Fairy Tail, One Piece, Inuyasha, Hitman Reborn and Ranma.
