This is the best chibi tutorial I've seen. After reading it I finally get what I was doing wrong and I feel like I can actually start practicing chibis! :D
Thank you so much for making this!

I always worry about necks. I can never draw a chibi without a 'neck', but this explains perfectly <3

Very helpful tutorial. The simplicity of the teardrop body was all I needed to hear to make things click into place!

Ah, thank you so much for this tutorial! I've always had such a terrible time with chibis, always getting the head to body ratio wrong, but this has helped a lot! :)

Even as someone who has spent several years of his life drawing, this has been a really helpful tutorial, especially with the segment on drawing the body. I definitely plan to keep this as a reference for future drawings, if you don't mind.

I found the body portion of the tutorial very helpful! The number one mistake I make while trying to draw chibis is adding shoulders to the outline. Thanks for pointing that out!

I seems that I never can draw chibis properly, even though they're supposed to be easy... you've got a nice style of drawing chibis. Thanks for the tutorial! ^^
