Jammer   01-January-2001 - 16:34:56
EXCELLENT SITE, I don't think I can say enough about it. Too cool. The only thing is she gets angry to you request new "specific character" tutorials (but I can sympathize) Other than that Julie is a heroine and.. I just can say enough about this site. I learned anime fast with just a few printoffs. SOOOO COOOL I COMMAND YOU TO GO HERE

sailormoon2nd   02-January-2001 - 11:28:53
This site helped me learn to draw the way I tried to learn to on other sites. This site goes into more detail than the site rated 10.0 and it gives extra info and helpful tips!

So if you want to go from HOW to WOW in anime drawing this is the site for you!!!!!!

Kyo   06-January-2001 - 01:50:54
This site rocks! I started from scratch until my classmate told me to check this site out. It rules! Keep it up! Keep on rollin, baby!

Thanx julie...at least that's what I figured your name would be...it is right...?anyway I just wanted to thank you for teaching me about half of what I know now about drawing girls everyone is telling me how good they are!

Seran   17-January-2001 - 12:26:04
One of the best sites I have ever seen!
What can I say...?
If you want to learn how to draw anime this site is a must!!

Kara   22-January-2001 - 15:07:49
I looked through all of the sites listed for drawing anime, and found this one to be among the most useful. I have been working on picking up techniques of anime for some time, and most of what I saw was very accurate, and wonderfully done. The way the site was set up was easy to manuever as well, and I could find everything I wanted without a huge fuss. I managed to produce a piece good enough to pass my inspection from the site as well, and that definitely counts for something.

samige   09-February-2001 - 03:45:53
This is a very comprehensive tutorial which I feel will help beginers and even some veterans. I enjoyed Julie's tutorial and recommend it to all who want to create their own characters.

Robert   12-February-2001 - 09:18:29
Very good Lots of good info and felt it was very well writen and layed out a defent A+ job.


Michael   23-February-2001 - 05:16:54

your site rocks but please put more about body drawings

Cliff   16-May-2001 - 12:55:06
I only had time to give this a cursory glance, but that glance told me a lot. This is probably one of the best sites to learn to draw from, period. It is easy to read and understand and it actually provides useful information and explains things. It has examples, but it is not just examples. For beginners or anyone who just wants to refresh their memory this is great.

Angel Roa   18-May-2001 - 11:11:38
Julie's homepage rocks! It took me a heckuva lot of good paper to draw manga the japanese way. Now, I started drawing my own manga characters with her tutorials. So far, her website kicks ass! Literally, ^_^. Send me some of your best work and maybe I can send some of mine. Thanx! Julie rocks!!

juliana   20-May-2001 - 20:32:14

AleTae   26-May-2001 - 19:38:24
THIS SITE ROCKS! I learned how to draw simple forward facing heads in less than a day. Well my heads arent the best, they r better than my brothers ^_^

This is the most useful site ive seen.
Thanx Julie for making this site.

Molly   17-July-2001 - 13:15:45
Julie can draw some of the most fabulous work I've seen. I highly recommend her tutorials. Infact, I always recommend them to people in dire need.

Jonathan   20-August-2001 - 22:30:18
This is a cool and amazing website. I learned how to draw Trunks on DBZ and Cloud on FF7. You really learn how to draw.

Jonathan   20-August-2001 - 22:33:23
This is a really cool and amazing website! I learned how to draw Trunks DBZ and Cloud on FF7. You can really learn to draw with Julie's help.

Prince of the Zoras   24-August-2001 - 02:46:56
I like it how the site shows how to draw existing characters, especially Cloud from FFVII. But I would like to learn how to draw 'Zelda' characters(e.g. the Zoras and Princess Ruto).

I love this site. I am 14 and I'm starting to get the hang of drawing originals. The only problem are the hands. Drawing hands is difficult. But this site teaches you a great deal on faces. This site has helped me to draw and create different styles of anime eyes.And also the basic shapes of the head. I can't thank Julie enough....

This site is wicked cool. There should be more sites like this one

Fiona   16-October-2002 - 22:30:56
I think this site is so cool! keep it up!

Miri   25-October-2002 - 07:24:02
It's great, but...you need to add more to make it perfect. Like: how to shade, how to draw a male's body, how to draw chibis, and how to draw shoes, hats, extra. But on what you have, I loved it!

Shiva   16-November-2002 - 01:13:36
I learned the basics from you and took some tips from my friends. I'm on the anime club at school and some of the people I met there told me about this site. I told them, that's where I learned how to draw. You guys got my girls drawn out right but what about the male figure. Other wise this site rocks!

Josh   20-November-2002 - 19:25:39
Great site , must be the best Adobe Photoshop tutorial around!

Robert   22-November-2002 - 18:59:00
This site is pretty good for tips on drawing things that other sites did not have. I like the facial expressions, because that helped me draw alot of different expressions for certain characters. I still need to find how to draw DRAGONBALLZ arms. If you know anysites please EMAIL ME. I hate the arms, im starting to learn how to draw them , but not quite yet. This site rules though. Just get me on aol sometime:Truballer23@aol.com

jeff   04-January-2003 - 01:52:07
I like your site but what I really, really need is how to draw shoes, boots, high heels,& Sneakers any thing really
I can't get it right at all the only way I've been able to draw detailed shoes is by looking at a strategy guide for a game
But you run out of ways to draw when you do that

Miruna Rebaar (My alias)   07-January-2003 - 21:43:22
Wow. That's all I have to say. I love your site, an' I don't know what I'll ever do without it! you go!

Some One Who looked at ur drawing   11-March-2003 - 01:37:22
this site is really nice, but the only one thing i dont like about it is, it didn't show u the real basic, well they have some but the basic i m talking about is start with the sketch,like circle so far none of the site i been on are interested me.i think u should add the real basic like i said the real basic

Ruxi Zhang   11-April-2003 - 23:19:22
Great site and extremely helpful, could do with a section dedicated to hands

Ali   14-April-2003 - 21:23:34

Lor   29-December-2003 - 10:10:52
Great tutorial, Julie... when I first started to draw, a few years ago already (my how the time flies, lol) your tutorials helped me a LOT. Now I searched them up again cos my uncle wants me to draw him a DBZ charactor and, since I haven't drawn any DBZ since I started, I came by for a quick refresher... not to say I haven't been back before, I pop in from time to time to take a look at the clothing and folds tutorials >_< *hates folds* Anyways, I noted I could comment you and just wanted to say thanks, between your tutorial and the BakaNeko.com one, it got me started as a young teen, and now as I graduate and go on to continue my education, I'm starting in illustrating and graphics design, with my continued interest in drawing. So thanks for your great free tutorial, and now you know it's affected at least one person in more than an "LIEK OMG!!!!11!!!oneone!!11 THIS IS LIEK TEH BESTEST DBZ TWOTORYALL EVER!!!!11!11 CHECK IT OUT OR U'LL ALL BE LOOZERS!!!11!!1one!!!111" kinda way ^_~

Joseph   06-January-2004 - 20:06:34

Joseph   06-January-2004 - 20:10:26
Oh I forgot add, I'm going to become a video game designer and need to be able to draw. You've help me alot Julie thanx.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Meaghan   14-January-2004 - 16:42:25

Cool site. I'm not a preffesional artist, but I'm pretty good. I'm not that good with hands, so I usyally draw peaple with their hands in their pockets. I've never been that good with hair and faices either. But when I visited this sight it became quite a bit easier. I'm still mostly tracing the hair and the basic outline of the heads, but other than that and the hands, I'm good! Thanks Julie. Note: If anything's misspelled, sorry! I'm a fast typer. Especially for my age.

Eric   28-April-2004 - 18:37:23
actually this sites sorta ok but it pails in comparison to pylonkarbon.com it has tutorials on stuff you'd have never thought of

Ferima   05-May-2004 - 18:20:33
Man,your tutorial is awesome! It's sort of detailed and uses a lot of other things i don't understand, but other than that, it's cool. Do u practice, Julie? even if u don't, you still got mad skills. if u need to learn to draw manga( and at the same time, learn basics about human anatomy), visit this website! once again, it's awesome.

Gman   20-May-2004 - 22:25:58

It's a really cool site for ppl who wanna learn manga/anime.
If your serious about your drawing then that's cool, if your not...it doesn't matter, it's a site all but the seriously-suckey-artistically -chalenged-people can understand and use!

Erika   28-February-2005 - 18:10:08
Now that I have tried to draw from this site, my friends think I am the best drawer in the Class!!You rock(whoever invented it!!)

Lizi black   05-March-2005 - 15:36:02
I like how you told what the expressions represent instead of just showing some pictures, it does help out. Ive been skecthing some anime for about 3 years although I dont know where I could mabye advertise it, so I was thinking it would be cool if you put some info. on your com. about where people could advertise there work. Oh and com. is my term for website. cheers, love Lizi

Kristy   19-March-2005 - 16:15:41
It was so magical.

Lavender B/M   21-March-2005 - 00:22:38
I found this site VERY helpful in drawing and whatnot. I really liked how it explained everything step-by-step. That made it extremely easy! Thanks!

deirdra   22-March-2005 - 05:55:30
i love your site especially the hair section. thanx for putting a section on how to draw the hair in motion, that was really helpful! i hope you add more soon-maybe more on eyes?

kevni   06-April-2005 - 21:05:18
his is the best site. I am going to tell all my friends about this site.GOOD WORK

ATIRAGEPRO   14-April-2005 - 06:20:42
So far this is the best one i've seen. It dosn't make alot of stipid robotic rules like most of the other ones do. It bases its self around natural forms of drawing art.

Kaylee   28-April-2005 - 15:20:33
I love this site, i have wanted to be able to draw like this for ages and your site has just got so much information on it. It is really good. :)

Gaya   14-May-2005 - 03:52:15

Jake   01-June-2005 - 10:11:23
Your magna site is great! It descibes it in great detail! All of the other websites act as though everone who logs on to their website is a pro at drawing! So they just start off on all of the hard stuff and don't show the basics. I'm sorta a beginner, so, your site's helping me alot!

Azaria   18-June-2005 - 18:09:00
This web site helped me to learn how to draw and now I am an artist I would like to thank this web site so much.

stef   07-August-2005 - 00:03:58
I learn the basics of anime drawings like it . . . a lot of time spent at the computer and a lot of practice after, I was able to draw simple figures. But if you want to draw more complex anime search in other website or books. But this is a really good site to learn the basics!

Love me!   08-August-2005 - 23:14:53

I think if you really follow the tutorials, anime can seem easy with the easy steps and examples on this site. I hope that more people will visit and take interest to this site.

Ronyo   08-May-2006 - 10:40:30
This site is the best I have seen so far. The drawings are not only shown, but also explained, so that the effect can be achieved with a variety of characters.
The level of drawing too, is very high, and you are made to feel as though you are talking to a close friend and at times, can imagine the how the drawing was accomplished from scratch.

A 10/10 well and truly deserved.

ally   16-May-2006 - 22:42:11

You don't need to know   04-September-2006 - 00:57:46
This site is excellent! The human form is very difficult to draw and I was struggling on some areas. This site improved my drawing skills and I would recommend it to anyone.

eddy   08-October-2006 - 18:07:42
hi every one,i have to admit this i've never seen anything like it,,,will to me it is! because i've been drawing for over 6 years but i never know that it was gonna be as easy as that with those basics,it really gets me to creat my own character very easy and in the way i want it...thanks to u guys....

Patrick Larabee   09-October-2006 - 20:04:51
As a beginner in drawing anime I found this website to be amazingly helpful. While filled with viable strategies and even precise steps for drawing a few characters it promotes your own drawing and your own characters, which I feel is hard to find in sites. Please take some time to read over this brief tutorial and practice, I promise you will learn or better your ability in some way. Thanks Julie!

sorry cant tell   16-October-2006 - 19:19:53
!v! it was GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lynda   30-October-2006 - 00:39:52
OMG! this is an extemely helpful guide....I am a thirteen year old trying to draw anime...I LOVE anime! Your guide is very detailed, explicit, and very understandable...you must have taken a long time to do this....on a scale of 1-10, I'd have to give you a 15+!!!!^_^ good job! My hat's off to you!!!!!!! I like your style of male eyes, but, it seems that style is more for men and older teenagers. What if the character's a boy, or young teenager? Wouldn't it be better to use the "female" eyes? Just a thought...not a critism. GOOD JOB!!!!!!! I reccomend this guide to all who read my reveiw!!!!

kristie   03-November-2006 - 22:54:18
awesome site your kool-aid

alex   19-November-2006 - 09:13:11

Beth   28-November-2006 - 12:32:40
I thought it was awesome! Especially for beginners, I'm more advanced, but I showed it to my friend and it totally helped her with her artwork!

Jimmy   12-December-2006 - 14:42:52
I think this web site is absoloutley fantastic because i produced my first manga drawing in roughly 45mins and it turned out brilliant.

Anime_Gur_14   15-December-2006 - 13:42:06

I loved drawing manga but I could NEVER (and I mean never!) get the eyes right.
Your site is so class and detailed it helped me lots!! Thanks Julie!!

Veronica   25-March-2007 - 14:16:52
I love reading, watching manga. but then one day i really wanted to draw it. i had millions of ideas on how to draw my own charachters, how they all look like. but there was one problem...i didnt know how to draw. i couldnt buy any books that could teach me, i dont know. so i started my reseach on the inet and i found this site. i was so amazed because i could learn basic steps. and now i know them and i am trying to draw them. so far i am good. =] thanks Julie.

Danielle   28-March-2007 - 15:57:12
WOW! I never knew that there would ACTUALLY be a site that ACTUALLY helps!

Dani   28-March-2007 - 16:04:43
Your awsome Julie! I have always been good at drawing faces and hair, but the
bodies have always been quite a problem. And then i suddenly gave up, and i stated to draw chibis, and THOSE bodies i CAN do. But then suddenly i started to surf the web and i found this awsome site and it has totally helped me!
thank-you! You rock!

Emily   12-April-2007 - 01:02:55

Damian   20-May-2007 - 09:49:43
This is the best ever website i have ever seen for drawing!!!!!!!!!!!

Partume Animus   07-June-2007 - 15:51:44
This is a good site for just beginning drawers(or for someone just looking to draw fan art). Currently I am working on character design, and it's hard.

Right now I'm looking for how to draw shoes...I can't even find a normal picture of an anime style one. Grr...

Samantha   27-August-2007 - 12:29:13
I just love this site. It has changed my entire way of drawing anime. What I use to draw as anime is now tottally transformed into what may be the best way I will ever draw anime. This site is truely one of the best ways to learn how to draw anime. If everybody on earth would just walk over to this site then the whole world would be covered in anime, almost like an anime TV show, and it would feel as if the anime characters from the TV and the comics just pop out and look so much more real, and it would be like that thanks to this one site that taught us how to draw like this.

TAZZ   06-December-2007 - 16:21:59


NO not THAT . . . IT'S GREAT ! ! !

cyvoria   31-January-2008 - 22:29:46
it might have been helpful to a lot of people!! oh and for me it was ok but a little bit of from what i was hoping to find.

wizzy   17-March-2008 - 20:29:04
I have always wanted to draw anime cuz my friends said it was alot of fun and thanks to this AMAZING site, I finally learned how. I thought you needed to be like a really good artist but this site proved me wrong, anyone can do it if they have some patience!!! thanks julie-u rock!!! :)

fullmetal   08-April-2008 - 14:12:17

Lea   03-May-2008 - 21:21:53
Those tutorials help me so much. I was horrible at proportions before I came to that page.

Joelle   20-May-2008 - 21:32:11
that is the best site ever!

jill   15-June-2008 - 19:05:37
this is the worst thing ever i doesn't tell you how to draw things or anyhting i rather go to to art class.

P.B.   22-June-2008 - 18:24:18
This site is good, except that the Dragon Ballz stuff is a little bit complex for me ( hey, im just a kid)

if any one has any other good easy sites twhich improve your drawings greatly, please email me at zathodium@gmail.com
thanks and nice site

Zayme   30-June-2008 - 00:03:53
I'm sorry, but I have tried this website a long, long time ago, and I did not find it that useful. The technique Julie uses is too stubborn for me.

I found this site useful for me: http://www.mangatutorials.com/
And for clothes and more information, I got most of my anime skills from tutorials on DeviantArt.com, where I learned the "squiggle" technique for clothes. Much easier.

I can understand how Julie's tutorial can help poeple, though. It's simple, easy to follow, etc. Just not right for me. Some people are like that, ya know? =3

Nadia   13-August-2008 - 18:03:20
I gotta agree - I really liked this site. It lacks some useful information like how to draw male figures, however.

And most of it is just self-tutorial. Practice over and over to get it right. Lol but I can tell you I've visited this site at least... probably 7 times?

I'm at the point where I've just learned just a bit on drawing anime heads.

leevz   25-January-2009 - 14:29:30
this website helped me so much.
brought me alot of populerity at school.

RYAN L   26-February-2009 - 22:44:34

chris o.   27-April-10 - 16:26:37
im fairly new at the drawing of anime characters, but this site really helped me out with alot of basics and medium stuff to draw. it doesnt get a perfect 10 from me since i still believe it needs some more tutorišls... all love from here to magna uni
