How to Draw Kuroyukihime from Accel World




Let’s learn how to draw Kuroyukihime from Accel World today!
Kuroyukihime (黒雪姫) is one of the main protagonists of the Accel World series. Kuroyukihime is a mysterious and popular student who is also the Student Council Vice-President at Umesato Junior High School. She is the player of Burst Brain game as a character named “Black Lotus”, who was once known as the Black King but after she killed the Red King, she went into hiding. She is known to be the current leader of the Black Legion, Nega Nebulus and the one who gave the Brain Burst program to another main protagonist Haruyuki. Her biggest ambition is to reach level 10 and meet the creator of the Brain Burst game.

Kuroyukihime is a very attractive, slender, young and the most beautiful girl in school. Her long black hair has two strands of hair extended from the top of her bangs, resembling the antenna of a butterfly. She has large hazel eyes. She usually wears school uniform consisting of black tights, a dark green skirt, a navy blue blazer, and a light blue bow tie.

Kuroyukihime has virtuous tranquility, patience and loves to drink tea constantly. However, she can sometimes be rude, angry, or even jealous when girls flirt with Haruyuki. She is smart, a great strategist, wise with words and can talk manipulatively. She shows wisdom and experience, knowing details about the Brain Burst game. Kuroyukihime seems to be a hardcore gamer, especially in simulation games and thinks highly of herself as a very intelligent person. She also loves Haruyuki. However, even though they show romantic feelings towards each other, in the Brain Burst world, they become serious in fighting against others or giving each other information. She values Haru as more than a subordinate and is often the voice of reason to him when he is willing to go to the extremes to protect her.

Step 1

As always all the blue and green lines are just construction lines and will be erased later so do not push on your pencil too much ^_^ I will try to be super efficient with the text so will only describe steps that require some explanation.
Make sure to leave enough free space on paper for next steps. You can see how much space you will need from the size of the paper on this picture.

If your goal is to become a real Mangaka and design your own manga characters make sure to try to draw Kuroyukihime from memory several times. Always compare the drawing to the original and correct any mistakes you see. Do this till you are happy with the result. It doesn’t have to look exactly the same, don’t sweat the details. The point is that you get the main shapes right and that it looks good. This is the best way to build a huge library of manga shapes in your memory that you can use to draw and design your own manga characters ^_-.

Draw with passion! ^_^
