Tips :

  • Keep your hands clean so you don’t smudge pencil lines, you can even wear a latex glove if you need to.
  • Use sharpened pencils to get fine lines and to keep everything consistent.
  • Simplify EVERYTHING chibis are never detailed
  • Practice drawing the eyes and different expressions, think of as many as you can and just draw the different faces, if you don’t want to draw the whole head then just draw the eyes, nose dashes and mouth
  • Keep looking for different examples of chibis, try copying them and look at how the different eyes and clothing are drawn.
