To draw the face of your Manga character, first find the center of the circle, and draw a vertical line beginning at the top of the circle and ending below the circle by about half the circle's length. This will be the guide line for your character’s chin.

Note that older characters have longer chins and more slender faces and younger characters have shorter chins and rounded faces. From the bottom of this line you’ll want to draw two curved lines (as shown) ending at the sides of the circle.

Some Manga artists draw the chin with sharp points like that of a square at the end of the chin and base of the jaw. For now stay as curvy as possible so you can get the style down
