Let’s learn how to draw Yuzuriha Ogawa from Dr. Stone today!
Yuzuriha Ogawa (小川 杠 Ogawa Yuzuriha) is one of the main female protagonists in Dr. Stone series. Yuzuriha has mastered sewing and crafting and she is in charge of making clothes for the Kingdom of Science, along with reassembling damaged or destroyed petrified humans for revival. As Senku’s spy along with Taiju she joins Tsukasa’s group. However after Tsukasa’s defeat, she returns to the Kingdom of Science. She is a childhood friend of Senku Ishigami.
Yuzuriha is a young woman with a slim build. Her eyes and hair are brown.
She has two petrification scars, located on her shoulder and neck. Both are in the shape of spirals. In a world before Petrification event, Yuzuriha wore a standard high school uniform. After her depetrification, she wears a white cloth dress that’s split at her sides and matching cloth shoes. Yuzuriha wears a white hairband, which resembles headphones.
Yuzuriha has a quiet and reserved personality. She is that kind of individual who tries to aid her friends and strangers alike in whatever ways she can. She tends to get nervous in dangerous or unpredictable situations, but knows to keep her mind at the task at hand. She usually uses her extensive crafting skills to carry out inventions or reassemble destroyed petrified humans. She possesses a great amount of determination as well as faith and she is rather patient. She wouldn’t abandon what she is doing to make her own moves. And puts 100% of her attention and motivation towards her given task. She also loves fashion and becomes a “wild beast” when crafting clothes. Yuzuriha also created a clothing store for both modern and stone world people.
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 Yuzuriha Ogawa 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! ^_^
