ALL THINGS CHIBI

ImagineFX - - Workshops -

A chibi is a cute, squishy, mini-ver­sion of a per­son, squished down to just three to four head lengths tall, with a large head and a chubby body. Shoul­ders are rounded off, hips are wider, hands and feet be­come stubby. Although these char­ac­ter­is­tics are child­like, re­mem­ber that you’re not ac­tu­ally draw­ing a child! An adult chibi should still look like an adult, just highly stylised. In manga, char­ac­ters are of­ten por­trayed as chibis when the story takes a light­hearted turn, for comic ef­fect. Spot all the ex­am­ples through­out this ar­ti­cle!
