Understanding Frieren’s Appearance

  • Focus on her large, expressive eyes and long, white hair styled into two pigtails.
  • Her attire, a combination of a striped shirt, a white jacket with gold accents, and a high-collared cape.
  • Pay attention to the earrings that complement her outfit.

To expand your anime characters portfolio, or to add story to your drawing, consider sketching Hero Himmel or Warrior Eisen next to Frieren, fellow characters from her journey.

Navigating the Drawing Guide

Each tutorial is composed of different number of images, each serves as a single step to construct Frieren’s image. Here’s how to use the color guide:

  • Red Color: Indicates the current step in the drawing process.
  • Black Color: Displays the lines from previous steps.
  • Grey Color: Shows the basic sketch, the initial framework of your drawing.

Start with a basic sketch, then add details. As the final touch, consider inking your masterpiece. Erase the pencil lines after inking for a crisp Frieren drawing.

Альт - step 16Pin

Ok, guys! Ready to draw Frieren’s face from the front? It’s easier than you think. We’ll walk through 16 simple steps to nail her look. First off, we sketch the basics and get those proportions just right. Picture her eyes and pointy ears? That’s where we begin.

Step 01 – Kick off your sketch with a simple circle for her head. Draw a straight line down the middle to keep everything even. Then, add the chin with a gentle curve coming down from the circle. You’ve just set up the canvas for her face
