Today, let’s try learning how to draw a student in our usual kawaii art style, using our easy to follow step by step outline, which you can see if you scroll down a bit further.

We’ve drawn a lot of characters but not too many where we take a regular human and turn them kawaii. If you missed one of our earlier videos, you can watch it to learn how to draw a cute girl.

Since we drew a girl last time, we thought it would be best to try a boy this time around. Feel free to change the hair/skin color to match whatever you’d like!

Art Supplies

Here’s a list of supplies we recommend to use, however, feel free to use whatever you can find around the house!

  • Pencil, Marker, Sharpie, Pen (Anything you can draw with!)
  • Paper (We love marker paper but use anything you can find).
  • Colored Markers (if you want to color the drawing).
    Here are what we think are the best colored pencils, best gel pens and best markers for coloring.
  • Your imagination (feel free to change colors or add things to the drawing!).

A Few Tips Before You Start Drawing

  • Drawing a kawaii student is fairly straight forward. The hair will be the most complicated but don’t worry about making it perfect. In fact, you can add some spikes to the top or get creative with it!

Let’s Draw A Student – Step By Step

howtodrawastudent-step1
Step 1: We will start by drawing the outline of his face – from cheek to cheek. Note that the right side has a higher line up than the left.

Step 2: Draw the left ear by doing a letter “C”. Add that little stroke inside the ear for the detail.

Step 3: Let’s now start making his hair by starting at the back. Make some pointy tips as you make your curve that will shape his head. End your drawing with a pointy tip as seen above.

Step 4: Continue the hair outline by making another pointy tip again. Follow the hairstyle sample above, making little waves along and ending at the face’s outline with more edgy designs.

Step 5: Time to draw the front part of the hair. Follow the arrows to create the outline as shown.

Step 6: Draw the collar part of his shirt with two rectangles connected to the bottom of his face. One is a bit smaller and leave a little space in between them.
howtodrawastudent-step7
Step 7: Connect the collars by drawing three curved lines. Note that the bottom two are closer together than the top curve.

Step 8: Draw both the shoulders in downward strokes.

Step 9: Next is the line for his shirt. Make the left vertical line shorter than the one on the right.

Step 10: Connect them with slanted lines to make the sleeves.
howtodrawastudent-step11
Step 11: Time to draw his arms so just make two parallel strokes, leaving a little margin from the end of his sleeves. Give a slight curve on the elbow part.
howtodrawastudent-step12
Step 12: Draw a circle in between the arms and two round curves on each end to make a wristwatch.
howtodrawastudent-step13
Step 13: Make the short little hand emphasizing the line where the thumb is. No need to add fingers because he is holding something.
howtodrawastudent-step14
Step 14: Draw an envelope-type of packet behind his arms and hand.
howtodrawastudent-step15
Step 15: Add the details of his shirt — two lines at the edge of each sleeves, two at the bottom of his shirt (connecting to the envelope he’s holding) and a little pocket on his chest.
howtodrawastudent-step16
Step 16: Next to draw are his pants or trousers. Create two lines downwards – one on each side.
howtodrawastudent-step17
Step 17: In the space between, make an inverted “V” with the edges just aligned with the lines on the side. The tip above should be extending a little bit just below his waist.
howtodrawastudent-step18
Step 18: Draw a line on each of the bottom of his trousers to close.

Add his other arm and hand on the side, too.
howtodrawastudent-step19
Step 19: Draw his shoes, as shown.
howtodrawastudent-step20
Step 20: Add some details on the shoe – one line at the bottom. Also, make a little stroke for his pocket.
howtodrawastudent-step21
Step 21: Let’s start making the face. The student is giving us a wink!

Draw the two downward curves first – with the outer edges slightly thicker or bolder. Draw a round shape on the right eye with a little circle (on the upper left) that will remain white.
howtodrawastudent-step22
Step 22: Draw the eyebrows by making a stroke just above both eyes. Make it slightly thicker. See that the right side is like on the hair already and that’s fine!

Add a little stroke for the mouth, and nose.
howtodrawastudent-step23
Step 23: Add some blush on the cheeks with oval shapes. Put them just almost at the edge of his eyes.
howtodrawastudent-step24
Step 24: Now, you’re done! It’s time to color your drawing! Make it cool!
