How to Draw Kyoma Kuzuryuu from Mikagura School Suite




Let’s learn how to draw Kyoma Kuzuryuu from Mikagura School Suite today!
Kyoma Kuzuryuu (九頭竜 京摩 Kuzuryū Kyōma) is one of the main characters of manga and anime series Mikagura Gakuen Kumikyoku. He is a third-year student in Mikagura Academy and the head as well as the representative of the Art Club.

Kyoma gives off the impression of being aloof and unapproachable. This, coupled with his scary glare and sharp words, makes him feared by many students. This attitude is the result of what had happened in his past and he also has a hard time trusting people. However, Kyoma is not the kind of person who picks a fight first. In fact, he tries his best to not get involved with people as much as possible. Although Kyoma rarely smiles and takes everything seriously, he is actually a good-natured person who really longs for a true friend. He is also willing to help people once asked. Kyoma really likes freedom, hence why he would rather seclude himself in his small room and draw as a way to let his heart speak out rather than communicate with people.

Kyoma is a young man with messy blonde hair. He wears the standard winter or summer uniform. His clothes and face are always splattered with paint as the effect of his ability, and he usually has a star-shaped print on his right cheek.

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 Kyoma Kuzuryuu 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! ^_^
