Your manga characters can show their anger when you learn from this easy, step-by-step angry anime girl drawing guide.
An angry anime or manga girl is often used as a comical plot element, with embarrassment over a funny situation turning to rage.

Step-by-Step Tutorial for Drawing an Angry Anime Girl
Below, you will learn how to draw an angry anime girl face.
Angry Anime Girl drawing - Step 1
1. Begin by outlining the angry face and drawing a pair of grid lines across it. Those grid lines will help you to accurately place the girl's angry expression.

2. Draw the eyes resting on the horizontal grid line, with the darkened corners pointing to the ends of the line. Notice that the pupils are small but the eyes are open wide with large irises.
Draw the knitted or furrowed eyebrows crossing over the tops of the eyes. The eyebrows should be slanted downward near the vertical grid line.

3. Erase the horizontal grid line and center the mouth over the vertical line. Place the nose above it, to one side of the vertical line.
Draw short lines around the bottoms of the eyes, and use long curved lines that meet at jagged points to begin drawing the hair.

4. Erase the remaining grid line. Then, use a long curved line to sketch the hair around the head. The ends of the anime girl's short hair consist of jagged lines.

5. Erase the unnecessary lines from the head and hair. Indicate the neck and the part in the hair with curved lines. Then, use three "V" shaped lines to sketch a three-pronged starburst shape on the side of the head. This mimics the appearance of bulging blood vessels, which occur when someone's blood pressure goes up due to anger.
