Let’s learn how to draw Chrome from Dr. Stone today!
Chrome (クロム, Kuromu) is one of the main protagonists of Dr.Stone series. He named himself the village’s self-proclaimed sorcerer – eventually the scientist of Ishigami Village, where he lives. Ishigami Village is a small community in the Stone World. He stumbled upon the basics of science and mistook them as sorcery. Chrome was always interested in experimenting with different materials. He is gifted in both chemical knowledge and crafting. As part of the Kingdom of Science (a state created by Senku Ishigami as a means bring science and technology back into the world), Chrome serves as the unofficial right hand of Senku. He is one of the Five Wise Generals and also the only post-petrification human among them.
Chrome is a young man of average height and build. His brown hair is spiky and keeps a rope tied around his head like a headband. He usually wears a short-sleeved, dark blue shirt, matching pants, a rope belt, and satchels that contain materials he’s collected. Sometimes, he will also don a cape that matches the color of his outfit as well.
Chrome is a highly energetic person with a lot of passion and curiosity. Chrome has a deep love of science, though he admits his expertise and knowledge lies mainly in exploration, particularly pertaining to rocks and minerals and gathering them. He is an accomplished scientist in his own right, managing to create chemical reactions from the rocks he collected through frequent trial and error. He is loyal to his friends and, while lacking in physical abilities, he is still able to think of clever solutions out of dangerous situations. He also has a tendency to refer to something as “bad” when he thinks it is cool or amazing. Chrome is also exceedingly brave, loyal and selfless, especially when it comes to his friends. In addition, while he is usually a loudmouth, he knows when to keep his mouth shut. He is naturally inquisitive and loves to help inventions being made.
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.
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.
Wait till the ink is nice and dry and erase all the construction lines.
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 Chrome 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! ^_^
