Do you like to draw and create adorable characters? Then these tips are for you!
Here I will share some tips that helped me when I started learning to draw.
I am sure that these tips will help you too to get started in the world of drawing and create amazing drawings with the Kawaii style.
1. Use basic shapes
What are the basic shapes? They are simple figures like circles, squares and triangles that are the basis for creating all kinds of things. Do you want to see an example? With just a circle we can draw a planet full of life. And what about the squares? They can become the head of a robot with a unique personality. And the triangles? They can be transformed into a majestic mountain that invites us to explore it or anything else you can think of. The key is to let your imagination run wild! Are you ready to start drawing with basic shapes? Let's draw!
2. The proportion of the head and body
Do you know what the general rule is for drawing a person? The head is equal to 7 or 8 times the size of the body. But in the Kawaii style it is different. The head is larger and the body is smaller. And besides, all shapes are round! That's what makes Kawaii characters look so cute and unique! Practice drawing proportions and you will see how you will improve your drawings!
3. Facial expression and emotions
The facial expression is one of the most important characteristics of this style, and we can achieve it by playing with the face. For example, big, bright eyes give characters a sweet and irresistible look. The mouth is also important, as it helps us convey different expressions. Playing with these details is key to creating Kawaii characters that will captivate everyone!
I recommend that you start by drawing simple and easy objects, like an apple or a house. As you practice, you will be able to increase the difficulty and draw more elaborate characters.
Another important piece of advice is not to give up. Sometimes it's easy to get discouraged if you can't draw something exactly the way you envisioned it, but remember that practice makes perfect. Keep practicing and you will see how you will improve over time.
Also, it is important that you have fun while drawing. Don't be afraid to experiment with different colors and styles. Art is a form of expression and you should enjoy it to the fullest.
