Step-by-Step Instructions for Drawing an Anime Tongue Out Face

This tutorial shows how to draw an anime tongue-out face character with four different facial expressions sticking out their tongues.

Step-by-Step Instructions for Drawing an Anime Tongue Out Face

These expressions are frequently found in lighter anime, like comedies and slice-of-life series. Character designs for these programs can also be significantly more stylized (less serious).

In addition, the female in the examples will be drawn in a more stylized manner than some of the other examples on AnimeOutline. As a result, some of the dimensions will alter somewhat from those in previous lessons.

The following are the four distinct expressions demonstrated in this tutorial:

  • Focused/Sly Look
  • Upset Teasing
  • Playful Teasing
  • Open Mouth Tongue Out

Because you’ll need to delete areas of the head after adding the hair, start the instruction with a pencil and make light lines. By drawing over your lines afterward, you may darken them.

The tongue is pointing upwards and to one side of the mouth in this first expression. It may be used to depict a character’s “sly” or “creative” countenance while concentrating on something like writing or sketching.

Step 1: Draw the Facial Features’ Outlines

As seen above, draw the head and the proportions of the face. We won’t go into great depth sketching each of the facial features because this course focuses on capturing the overall expressions that show the tongue.

Draw one eye mildly squinted and the other closed for this look. Next, draw the brows with the one over the open eye in a natural condition and the one above the closed eye a little lower down in a “wave” form. Finally, draw a smiley face with a bigger mouth on the side where the tongue protrudes.

It’s worth noting that, while technically speaking, you must always open your lips to push your tongue out; these are stylized anime characters. This means that if the mouth is slightly open, the jaw can be drawn in the same position as closed.

Step 2 – Place the Ears

Fill in the tiny elements of the face. The inner portions of the eye and a hint of the eyelids will be seen in this situation (added between the eyes and the eyebrows).

There’s no need to design any of the inner intricacies of the ears because the hair would nearly completely hide them.

 Step 5 – Draw the Hair

Fill up the top of the head with hair. Splitting the hair into three sections is the approach used to draw it. In the image above, the front, sides, and back/top are all colored differently.

Begin with the front, then the sides, and lastly, the back/top.

Step 6 – Finish the Drawing

You can delete any sections of the head obscured by the hair once you’ve finished the line drawing. You may also use a darker pencil stroke or a black pen/marker to draw over your lines.

After that, use a black or extremely dark pencil to shade in the brows, eyelashes, eye contour, and pupil. As you shade, add a trace of individual lashes to the eyelashes. Darken the hair, open eye, and tongue after that. Make the inner portion of the hair and the top area of the eye a shade darker than the rest.
