How these Guides Work
The guides are a visual journey through 27 steps for the manga style and 23 steps for the anime style. Each step is a building block towards the final masterpiece.
- Red Color: Indicates the current step to focus on.
- Grey Color: Represents the basic proportion sketch.
- Black Color: Shows the lines from previous steps.
Starting with a basic stick figure, the guide progresses to a rough sketch that outlines Mei Mei’s distinctive features. Subsequent steps refine the drawing, adding details to her hair, face, and attire. Inking is the final flourish, requiring a steady hand and patience as the ink dries before any pencil marks are erased.
Mei Mei with her Battle Axe – Manga Style Drawing Guide
Alright, let’s dive into drawing Mei Mei manga-style! Think of the first three steps as your drawing warm-up. We’ll kick off with some light pencil lines to sketch a simple stick figure, kind of like mapping out her awesome pose. It’s just like setting up a mannequin before dressing it up. Next, we’ll add a bit of shape to those bones with a rough outline of her body, making sure she’s got that epic stance she’s known for. And, of course, we can’t forget her cool Battle Axe and that sly crow chilling on it — just rough shapes for now. From there, we’re going to go top-down, adding in all those neat details: the braids, that fierce look in her eye, and the boots ready to stomp some curses. Each step is about getting those details just right. By the time we’re done, you’ll have a drawing of Mei Mei that looks like it’s about to leap off the page!
How to Draw Mei Mei from the Anime Series
Now, let’s jump into the anime style for Mei Mei. We’ll start this creative adventure the same way, with the basics. Picture the first three steps as drawing the skeleton of a pose with your pencil, nothing too heavy, just a breezy stick figure. Once we’ve got her stance all set, we’ll sketch out a rough outline of her body, capturing her unique silhouette without the Battle Axe and crow this time — giving her a different kind of spotlight. Over the next 23 steps, we’ll flesh out every bit of her, from that expressive look to the way her hair falls just right. We’re going step by step, so no rush — it’s all about enjoying the process and seeing Mei Mei drawing comes to life, one pencil stroke at a time.
