How to Draw a Manga male Head

How to Draw Manga Boys

Many manga artists have an easier time drawing one gender over the other. They usually have a harder time with males -- but drawing manga boys is easy once you get the hang of it. First you draw the outline of the body. Then you fill in the head, body, and facial features. Then you add some hair and clothes, and you'll soon see that you've drawn a realistic manga boy. Keep reading for detailed instructions after the jump.


  1. It is always good to begin with a stickman sketch of where you want your character on the page and what pose he will be in.
    • Don't forget the idea of perspective. In the introductory picture, the hand in the front is a lot bigger to appear closer to the viewer.
  2. When drawing a guy, remember he is usually more lean and box-like, and you can make him more muscular and defined as opposed to drawing a smooth, curvy outline for a girl.He should be bigger at the shoulders and narrower at the hips, with little or no expansion at the chest or constriction at the waist.
  3. Draw the head shape first in pencil, including the hairline and sideburns.These are pretty key in differentiating the jawbone and adding masculinity.
  4. For the face, draw where you want the eyes to be.Guy eyes are different because they are not as round or shiny, unless they are very young. For a teenager like the one depicted, a good medium sized, slanted eye style works well.
    • Guys don't accentuate their eyelashes. So, in cartoon styles like manga, they have little to NO eyelashes.
  5. The hair is always messy and standing up in odd angles.So, go wild and draw a messy tuft of hair.
    • The guy in the introductory drawing has a hat, another boyish feature.
  6. Focusing on clothes is fun!For guys, they usually wear baggy tee shirts or graphic designs, jeans, hoodies, and lack accessories. Draw the tee shirt like you would define his back, and then let it hang off in the front to show the bagginess.
  7. Check your drawing to see if it looks right.The main details are his shape, which should be boxy and muscular, and his head with short, spiked hair. Goofy grins are optional!

    Try to base yourself on forms and don't erase if you make an error, it's just a sketch. For the rest, you can find books or other things to help you. The internet is a good resource: Google, YouTube and even WikiHow are full of tutorials!

    I am only good at copying, when I try to make my own I fail. What can I do?

    Keep practicing. Once you've copied something, try just changing a few details. You can also try copying the basic outline and then giving it a whole new look of your own. Take it slow and try not to get frustrated.

    You can look for references to see what others have done as well as practicing drawing glasses and faces. The only difficulty would be making them look natural with the rest of the face, but this can be faced through practice.

  • Manga is highly simplified and symbolic, so the fewer lines the better.
  • Draw your lines very lightly, but still make them visible. That way you can erase them more easily if you make a mistake.
