And since this is an art of cuteness, the characters will be naturally cute to chew on. The childishness of the drawings goes hand in hand with an innocence and a kind of naivety that emanates from all these adorable creatures that the kawaii universe is populated. Yes, the link with Manga is very strong and evident in the way the characters are presented! And yet, any object or creature, no matter what nature, could become kawaii. Animals of course in the first place, because these have always been synonymous with something cute. But other than that, food, wonderful beings like the unicorn, or even simple everyday objects. Without forgetting the emblematic characters of Japanese culture and comics such as Hello Kitty, Totoro, Pikachu and others.

Easy to reproduce and simplified design

Yes, the characters are undoubtedly adorable, but on the drawing side, what we appreciate more is the simplicity in the realization of the sketches. In most cases, it suffices to start with a very simple shape such as a circle or a square and gradually add small details, resulting in a Japanese comic-style design. That is, a design that is not only easy to reproduce but also simplistic, without overly intricate details and without concern for realism. So we don’t try to make a drawing too elaborate – sometimes a curved line for the mouth, eyes in small black dots and symmetrical pink spots to mark the cheeks are quite sufficient to start. Know, however, that everything will depend on the emotion you would like to instill in your characters. Depending on this, the combination of shapes and details will change and therefore the expression of the face as well. And here we must admit that like emoticons, there are really very varied facial expressions..

Easy-to-do drawing with rounded shapes

And just as baby faces are rounded, kawaii designs also follow this trend of roundness in the designs. Exit then too angular shapes, as well as straight lines. Curvatures are actually an important part of creating that air of softness and friendliness so characteristic of kawaii characters. The kawaii creature, it must make you want to pamper!

How to draw a kawaii girl – bet on atypical proportions

Forget everything you have learned about the proportions of the human body in drawing. The kawaii universe is ruled by excess. You’ve probably noticed the same trend in Manga comics featuring characters with giant heads and even quite huge eyes. Yes, the lack of too much detail on the face naturally resulted in an enlargement of the head and eyes in order to reintroduce that expressiveness that is inherent in any figure. The crops, as large as the head, also leaves no room for too much detail, which is another contribution to the simplistic character of the kawaii drawing..

You might just ditch your kawaii drawing during the sketching stage, but know that a little color could change everything. Because, apart from the proportions, the colors also play a key role in adding extra cuteness to these adorable creatures. And of course, this will be a color scheme with a jovial and very lively character, including pastels, bright and vibrant colors and of course rainbow colors..
