Use the video and step-by-step drawing instructions below to learn how to draw Sailor Moon (aka Serena Tsukino) from the Sailor Moon anime cartoon. A new drawing tutorial is uploaded every week, so stay tooned!
Intro: Start off with a pencil sketch. In the beginning stages, don’t press down too hard. Use light, smooth strokes for sketching.
Step 1: Start with a shape similar to an oval with a slight point at the bottom. The oval doesn’t have to be perfect. It’s just a basic guide for Sailor Moon's head.
Step 2: Under the oval, draw two curved lines as guides for Sailor Moon’s neck and shoulders.
Step 3: Next, draw two intersecting lines across the oval, one vertical and one horizontal. Bend the lines so they follow the contour of the shape. These will be construction lines that will help you place Sailor Mooon’s facial features later on.
Step 4: On either side of the vertical construction line, draw two circles sitting on top of the horizontal construction line. These will be guides for Sailor Moon's eyes. The circle on the right should be smaller and narrower because of perspective.
Step 5: Under the horizontal construction line and on the left side of the vertical construction line, draw a guide for Sailor Moon's mouth. The shape of the guide is similar to the letter U with a line over it or a sideways letter D.
