How to Draw Ririna Sanada from Koi To Uso




Let’s learn how to draw Ririna Sanada from Koi To Uso today!
Ririna Sanada (真田 莉々奈) is one of the main heroines of the Love and Lies series. She is a second-year student at Rijou Girls Academy, a prestigious all-girls high school in her neighborhood. Because of Yukari Law, she was assigned by the government for Yukari Nejima as the marriage partner. Yukari Law is the strategy for the Control of the Declining Birth Rate. However, Yukari Nejima loves Misaki Takasaki. Ririna claims to have no special feelings for Yukari and even becomes a matchmaker between him and Misaki Takasaki.

Ririna is a pretty girl with a slim figure and she is the shortest among her friends. Her rosy blonde hair is waist-length and usually styled in a two-sided ponytail. Her eyes are dark purple. She only wears thigh-length dresses outside of her school uniform.

Ririna is mostly very blunt and speaks what’s on her mind. She is also shown to be a bit oblivious to what love really is. Ririna is also sensitive to words, which can make her cry or walk away. She is very interested in romantic stories and encounters. She considers Misaki to be her first friend, and upon realizing this she went as far as crying.

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 Ririna Sanada 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! ^_^
