How to Draw Julis Riessfeld from Gakusen Toshi Asterisk




Let’s learn how to draw Julis Riessfeld from Gakusen Toshi Asterisk today!
Julis-Alexia Marie Florentia Renate von Riessfeld (ユリス=アレクシア・マリー・フロレンツィア・レナーテ・フォン・リースフェルト) is one of the main protagonists of The Asterisk War. Born the first Crown princess of Lieseltania, a small country in Europe, she entered Seidoukan Academy to make better conditions for those living in Lieseltania.

Julis is a beautiful girl with long, bright pink hair and cyan eyes. She wears the Seidoukan Academy uniform jacket and black dress with grey belt and white blouse underneath. She has two key-like headpieces on either side of her hair. She wore thigh high socks with white lace across the top, and heeled shoes. We can see purple and cyan elements on her clothes. Aspera Spina, Julis’ weapon, is held in the right guard on her hips.

Julis is elegant, proud, beautiful, hot-headed, stubborn, honorable, faithful, and loyal person who would do just about anything for a friend and whatever it takes to keep them safe. However, she can have unfriendly facade and can be cold to those she is unfamiliar with. Maybe because she is afraid of disappointment and rejection. She also dislikes relying on others.

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 Julis Riessfeld 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! ^_^
