The Narrated step-by-step video tutorial:
Intro: Start off with a pencil sketch. In the beginning stages, don’t press down too hard. Use light, smooth strokes for sketching so that it's easy to erase if you make a mistake.
Step 1: Draw a circle as a guide for the top part of Deku's head. First make four marks to determine the circle's height and width. Then connect the marks using curved lines. If you're struggling to draw the circle, just trace the outer rim of a circular object like a cup or a bowl.
Step 2: Under the circle, draw a long curved line for the bottom section of Deku's head. Bend the line slightly at the bottom and sides to indicate the chin and jaw. The tips of the line shouldn't be as wide as the circle. Don't place this line too low or the head will be too long.
Step 3: Inside the entire head shape, draw two intersecting lines. These are construction guides that will help you place Midoriya's facial features later on. Pay attention to the placement of these lines inside the head. On the right side, draw a shorter, curved line as a guide for the ear. Under the head, draw two short, vertical lines as guides for the neck.
That's it for the guides! For the next steps, use darker lines for a more defined drawing of Izuku Midoriya.
Step 4: On top of the horizontal construction line, draw two big curved lines for Deku's eyes. Use the vertical construction line as a guide to help you determine the space between the eyes. Make the top edges of the eyes thick. The eye on the left should be smaller than the eye on the right because the head is turned.
Step 5: Inside the eyes, draw small ovals for Deku's irises. Inside each oval, draw a smaller circle and shade it in for the pupils. On the sides of each pupil, draw a couple of tiny circle for highlights. Above the eyes, draw curved horizontal lines for the eyebrows. To the left of where the construction lines intersect, draw a tiny angled line for the nose. Below the nose, draw a curved horizontal line for the mouth. Place the mouth near the bottom edge of the head circle.
Step 6: Draw a series of curved and spiky lines across the top part of the head for the first part of Midoriya's hair. The bottom tips of the hair should be similar to the letter V. It's okay to overlap the eyebrows as you draw the hair. Curve the lines so that the hair falls on the outer sides of the eyes.
