Let’s learn how to draw Anya Forger from Spy x Family today!
Anya Forger (アーニャ・フォージャー) is one of the main female protagonists of Spy x Family series. She is 4 or 5 years old girl, who can read other people’s thoughts and is the only one who knows of her family’s secrets. Anya is originally an experimental human test subject, known as Test Subject “007”. She escaped and moved from one orphanage to another before being adopted by Loid. She is a student in Cecile Hall at Eden Academy and the adopted daughter of Loid Forger and Yor Forger.
She is a short young girl with fair skin and large green eyes with prominent eyelashes. Her shoulder-length, light pink hair that curls inwards with a fringe, reaches just above her eyes. Anya wears two black hair ornaments with bright yellow embellishments that resemble small horns on the sides of her head. Anya is never seen with her hair ornaments off, even wearing them to sleep.
She likes spy anime and thinks anything involving “secrets” and “missions” is exciting. Due to being raised as an experiment subject, Anya does not have very good social skills and cannot have normal communication with people. Because of this, she tends to be completely honest, always saying and reacting people’s inner thoughts which usually leads her to initiate involuntary conflicts with others. However, Anya possesses a kind and empathetic side.
As always all the blue and green lines are just construction lines and will be erased later so do not push on your pencil too much ^_^ I will try to be super efficient with the text so will only describe steps that require some explanation.
Make sure to leave enough free space on paper for next steps. You can see how much space you will need from the size of the paper on this picture.
Lighten all the construction lines by “stamping” the kneaded eraser on the paper. Make sure to refer to the picture bellow as you need to ink only some parts of the construction lines.
Wait till the ink is nice and dry and erase all the construction lines.
To add colors, make sure to sketch the color outlines with the right color or pencil first.
If your goal is to become a real Mangaka and design your own manga characters make sure to try to draw Anya Forger from memory several times. Always compare the drawing to the original and correct any mistakes you see. Do this till you are happy with the result. It doesn’t have to look exactly the same, don’t sweat the details. The point is that you get the main shapes right and that it looks good. This is the best way to build a huge library of manga shapes in your memory that you can use to draw and design your own manga characters ^-^.
Draw with passion! ^_^
