How to Draw Anime Greek Gods

Greek mythology continues to be a source of inspiration for stories and characters in many types of media. Drawing anime-style Greek gods by using anime techniques can provide a fun twist in conveying such stories. Japanese animation often is characterised by large childlike eyes and angular faces. Start with a rough sketch and gradually add details until your Greek god character comes to life. Achieve an anime look by mimicking the Japanese animation-style, primarily in the facial features of your character.

  1. 1

    Draw an oval shape for the head and sketch out a pose for your Greek god with simple guidelines for the arms and legs.

  2. 2

    Add a circle shape for the chest and abdomen. Make a long rectangular shape as a guide for the lower part of the gown.

  3. 3

    Sketch out the details in the face of your character. Draw large anime-style eyes and add angular, stylised hair.

  4. 4

    Finish the limbs by using the guidelines as a basis to complete their shape.

  5. 5

    Sketch in wrinkles on the robe. Draw the robe so that it appears to hang loose and blow in the wind for a more majestic feel.

Tips and warnings

  • Look at Greek clothing for help sketching the dress of your character.
  • Avoid drawing hair as a mass. Try to duplicate how real hair hangs.
