Today we will be drawin Aladdin, one of the for Magi and original owner of the Djinn Ugo. It also seems he likes to steal other people’s water melons ^_^ Thx a lot to Genesis for request! ^_^
As always all the blue ines 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 text so will only describe steps that require some explanation.
Draw the head circle, center line and eye line. Notice that eye line is pretty low and tilted to right. Center line is slightly curved and cuts the eye line in two parts, shorter on the left.
Notice that eye on the left is closer to the center line than eye on the right.
Lighten all the construction lines by “stamping” the kneedable eraser and ink the final lines. Make sure to refer to the picture above as many construction lines shouldn’t be completely inked especialy with overlaping objects like hair over ears etc. Bolden the eye, eyebrow and mouth lines and fill the eyes with black. Draw shadow on Magi’s neck.
Wait till the ink is nice and dry and erase all the construction lines.
Shade Magi with pencil or gray markers and we are done ^_^ If your goal is to become a real Mangaka and design your own manga characters make sure to try to draw Magi from memory several times. Always compare the drawing to the original and correct any mistakes. 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! ^_^
