In this "how to" video, we learn how to draw a "chibi" form of an angel. Chibi is a Japanese term meaning "short person" or "small child". It has become a style of art in which Japanese Anime and Manga artists attempt to make all of their characters into "cute", childlike characters (with small bodies, large heads, and large eyes). The artist in this video shows his/her step by step process of drawing a small "chibi" angel holding tightly onto a heart. The artist starts with the eyes, then works his/her way to the face. The heart is drawn to give reference and hide the body, then the artist works on the characters arms, then hair. After the hair, the details like wings, halo, and bows are added. The author finishes with shading and an inscription on the heart to his/her friends. The time it took to draw the character was 19 minutes, but the video shows it taking 6 - so go at your own pace and don't get discouraged if it takes you longer.
