The professional artists are calling Anime one of the most “forgiving” genres. You can get away with almost any ridiculous and/or original idea and it will look natural. Usually, Manga is all about huge eyes, small noses, sharp lines and exaggerated body parts. But not always and not in this particular case.

Some Things To Keep In Mind…

These tutorials are only here to guide you. Your drawing does not need to look "identical" to mine.

Start with rough but light pencil strokes that you can work into the shapes you want.

Once you have your rough drawing completed, go over it in a darker stroke for your final drawing.

Add shading and/or color to complete if desired.

Using this technique you will be able to draw anything after some practice... even without following step-by-step tutorials.
