How to draw Mikey Side Face from Tokyo Revengers (Step By Step Guide)
Here including eight steps:
- Draw a circle and divide it into equal four parts
- Outline the overall shape of the face
- Draw the shape of an eye, lips, and nose
- Outline the hairs
- Add more details to hairs
- Draw the overall shape of the uniform coat
- Add more details to the outlines of coat, face, and hairs
- Complete your drawing by shading or coloring
Step 1) Draw a circle and divide it into four equal parts
Let’s start our drawing by drawing a circle using a round-shaped plate or a cup, as shown in the reference picture. Use your measuring scale to measure the length of the circle’s diameter. As you can see in the picture circle is divided into four equal parts, and each part should be of equal length, which is 11 cm. Also, draw a line or tangent of 12cm along with the circle, as it touches only one point of the circle, so the drawn line is called the tangent line.
Step 2) Outline the overall shape of the face
After drawing the circle and dividing it into four equal parts, now in step 2, draw the overall shape of
Mikey by making lighter strokes. To draw the shape of the side face, we should not need to draw all faces; we are just drawing the side shape of the nose, lips, and chin. The tangent line helps us draw the chin a little far away from the circle. Draw a curved line to make the eye space and draw a sharp stroke for the nose tip. Joint these curved lines and strokes carefully to make proper lips and overall face look.
Step 3) Draw the shape of the eye, sided lips, and nose
Now draw a stroke to draw the overall shape of the eye. Draw a curved line of 2cm by measuring scale and draw a little straight line at the top left side of the circle on the curved line. Connect then curved and straight lines to make a proper shape. Draw an oval-shaped iris and also an eyelid on the top. Make two strokes above the outline of the eye one is longer, the other is shorter, and join them. Make a stroke in the right between the sharp edges of lips, as shown in the reference picture.
Step 4) Outline the hairs
Draw sharp lines or curves for outlining hairs, and strokes should be darker than the strokes drawn for the circle. To Make a shape of pulled hairs backward down, half hairs are tied on the top, and the rest are untied. Draw a stroke or round-shaped curved line just on the top of the circle and three to four for binding hairs. To make a proper look for untied hairs, draw some sharp and loose curved lines over the edge of a circle drawn on the half-circle. These lines or strokes cover half of the circle to make a proper look for the sided face of the anime character.
Step 5) Add more details to hairs
As shown in the reference picture, add details to hairs by making sharp strokes and curved lines. Join these curved lines carefully to make spikes for the hair nodes. Divide the hairs into the layers as the first layers should be at the top for tied hairs, the second layer starts at the ending point of tied hairs, and the third one is the last layer to make loose untied hair. Join the outline of the chin inside the hair outline so that hairs look more realistic.
Step 6) Draw the overall shape of the uniform coat
Let’s draw the overall shape of Mikey’s uniform coat. To outline the uniform coat, just start making strokes from inside the edges of hairs, as shown in the reference picture. Also, make some improper little curved lines to draw the shoulder’s outline.
Step 7) Add more details to the outlines of the coat, face, and hairs
To look more realistic, draw some curved lines for wrinkles on the uniform coat and add details to hairs by adding strokes and curved lines. As shown in the reference picture, make two square-shaped outlines for coat or collar buttonholes.
Step 8) Complete your drawing by shading or coloring
First of all, erase the unnecessary parts of outlines and the circle that we have drawn in the first step to start our drawing. After erasing the unnecessary outlines of the drawing, make the strokes and curved lines darker and smoother so that the drawing looks realistic and creates an anime look.
Shade the eyes darker and hairs also, but keep in mind that the hairs strokes should be visible. Make some more wrinkles on the uniform coat to create a realistic and elegant look. Now shade the uniform coat and make the drawn strokes darker and smoother by erasing unnecessary parts.
You can also trace it on any software and turn your anime hand drawing art into colored digital art. For this, you just have to capture a picture of your handmade drawing and then send it to your software and trace the outline by adding layers. After completing your drawing color, it is shown in the reference picture. You can also shade or color the background of your anime drawing. It will create a more realistic impact.
