How to Draw Frankenstein “Principal Lee” from Noblesse




Let’s learn how to draw Frankenstein “Principal Lee” from Noblesse today!
Frankenstein (Kor. 프랑켄슈타인 / フランケンシュタイン) (commonly referred to as chairman by the children) is the deuteragonist of the Noblesse Manhwa series. He is Raizel’s devoted servant. He had tried searching for his master after Rai’s apparent “disappearance.” Frankenstein is the principal/director of Ye Ran High School. He is immensely powerful, a very cheerful and loyal person, especially toward his master, but can become quite serious and calculative when the situation calls for it. Although Frankenstein has shown somewhat of a sadistic side during his recurrent battles, like Rai, he is also compassionate towards human beings, especially towards the students in his school. Frankenstein is very handsome and elegant. He is tall and has shoulder-length silky blond hair, with bright blue eyes and a cheerful smile. When he becomes overly boisterous, his aura changes and he sports a sadistic grin with an equally sadistic personality to match. He is regularly dressed in formal attire but has been seen to switch to a less formal style when at home. He wears glasses when performing his duties as Chairman of the school. He is a brilliant scientist with a passion for experimentation. Frankenstein is actually the only human to be acknowledged by the previous Lord because he exceeded human limitations and acquired power by his own means.

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 Frankenstein 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! ^_^
