How to Draw Inaho Kaizuka from Aldnoah.Zero




Let’s learn how to draw Inaho Kaizuka from Aldnoa.Zero today!
Inaho Kaizuka (界塚 伊奈帆) is the main protagonist of Aldnoah.Zero series. He was originally an ordinary Earth boy, a student enrolled at Shinawara academy. He’s an expert soldier and pilot for United Earth Forces. He continued to pilot his training Kataphrakt, the KG-6 Sleipnir, throughout the Second Earth-Mars War.

Inaho is a young teenager of average height with short tousled black hair. His eyes, with their burgundy irises, gave Inaho his characteristic blank gaze. He often wears a typical high school uniform. It consists of a beige blazer over a white sweater along with a white shirt, red tie, and dark brown pants. His backpack is dark blue. In combat he wears a standard military uniform of a dark grey suit over his entire body with a dark green brace over his neck.

Inaho is a generally emotionless person with the blank stare look on his face most of the time. He shows traits of a high-functioning autistic child being very intelligent and an expert tactician, but is unable to express emotion and express himself fully. He has an amazing ability to remain calm in dangerous situations. His emotional detachment, along with his piloting skills and intelligence has resulted in him being a tactical savant. However, he does not communicate effectively, and is often criticized for not sharing his plans with others and only giving them orders. He also has a great knowledge and understanding of sciences, physics in particular. He values people not by rank, history, nor affiliation, but by utility.

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.

Step 9

Lighten all the construction lines by “stamping” the kneaded eraser on the paper. Make sure to refer to the picture bellow as you need to ink only some parts of the construction lines.

Step 10

Wait till the ink is nice and dry and erase all the construction lines.

Step 11

To add colors, make sure to sketch the color outlines with the right color or pencil first.

If your goal is to become a real Mangaka and design your own manga characters make sure to try to draw Inaho Kaizuka 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! ^_^
