Kawaii, which literally means “cute”, is a popular aesthetic in Japanese culture. There are different styles of Kawaii art, however most have common traits such as large heads and eyes, small mouths and chins, as well as childlike or smaller bodies.
There’s no denying that it’s hard to resist the allure of these cute, adorable characters! Although some may think that drawing Kawaii is too difficult for them to do on their own, it’s actually one of the easiest ways to begin learning how to draw.
