With just a few basic shapes it’s quite easy to draw a kawaii character by yourself. I’ve picked some cute drawing tutorials that you can access online for free.
Tatyana Deniz shows how to draw a cute cat in 4 simple steps. You should really check out her website which is dedicated to kawaii characters that you can draw.
Kawaii Drawings is a great place to learn about what styles and techniques to use for a cute drawing. For instance you can learn how to draw kawaii body shapes.
Drawing How To Draw offers many free drawing lessons, including lots of cute characters. This Chibi My Melody drawing lesson also comes with a video tutorial.
At Doodles by Sarah you’ll find many examples on how to draw cute doodles, cards and calendars.
At Hello Pixel art you’ll find many pixel drawings to make on simple graph paper. You do not have to be good at drawing to recreate this pixel art, if you can count, you can do this ^_^ In my opinion it’s so relaxing to make pixel art.
If you enjoy making pixel art, you could also take inspiration from the Kandi Patterns website.
Instagram is a good source of free drawing lessons as well. Lifeinabuyo and julia.pezowicz often post great free drawing lessons.
Also check out Kawaii Drawing & Doodles For Beginners post and Art & Drawing section for more inspiration.
