I'm sorry for the bad quality- ipod touch cameras are good -to me- but not as soon as it gets dark. :c

    Start drawing the outlines of the hair, and a bit of the face. Some people might want to draw the face first, but I find it easier to draw the hair first. DON'T press too hard! Sketching is good! If you press too hard on your pencil, you won't be able to fully erease it, especially not when you don't have the right paper. Don't be affraid of doing things wrong, and having to draw them again. I drew the hair 3 times over, and the eyes even more.

    EYES o3o Start drawing the eyes! You do this by making a little kind of bow above the place where you want the eye, and a line under it, and you draw a circle- or whatever form you want to have the eye- on the line. Add a little circle for the light.

    Add the pupils. Don't colour the little circle you just drew! That's supposed to be the light. (The eyebrows are slightly different in the result, the right one didn't work out very well at this picture)

    Colour it in, SOFTLY. Don't make the iris darker than the pupil. I drew the iris by sketching little circles around the pupil. Then I added some stripes. If you're not sure how to draw the eye, look in the mirror, at your own eye, or google it. Once you know how to look at things, it'll be easy (:

    Make a mouth. If you want to. Chibis don't always have a mouth.

    Finish the hair, and give her clothes :3

    It doesn't look awesome together. But I decided to give her a legging, and socks. Just 'cause i felt like it.

  8. Small img 0227 1299263450

    Add the details on her clothes, and colour the socks.

    Add the last details.
