How to Draw Rachel “Michelle Light” from Kami no Tou




Let’s learn how to draw Rachel from Kami no Tou today!
Rachel (라헬 / ラヘル) is main heroine of Tower of God. Also known as Michelle Light (미쉘 라이트, Misuel Raiteu). She has blonde hair and yellow eyes. She is an Irregular, “members who have not been chosen”, someone who was not selected from within the Middle and Outer Towers to climb the Tower through Headon’s normal selection of Regulars, but who entered the First Floor from the outside. She longs to see the stars which is one of the fabled rewards waiting at the top of the Tower, because she “fears the Night”. Having once been a member of Khun’s team, she now works alongside FUG, the most dangerous and secretive criminal group in the Tower lead by Grace Mirchea Luslec. Their official members wear the “Mark of the Slayer”. She was Baam’s best and only friend as she was the only one to visit him in his “cave”.

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 Rachel 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! ^_^
