Question by Randomness!: when you draw anime or manga should you start with the head or the body?
I’m new at drawing anime and manga and i always draw the head first but i was wondering if it’s easier to draw the body first.

Best answer:

Answer by jplatt39
It’s not easier to draw the body first but you will get better results if you draw it first. The best way is to rough in the torso, then the legs then the arms then the head.

But don’t do a very thorough rendering of anything. Just rough in the body position and the gestures for each part, then move on to the next part and come back when you have rest of it sketched in and fix it.

This is true of every type of figure drawing, anime, Superhero, fashion, and so on.
