Haruhi Fujioka is obviously quite popular as she was requested a lot! She is an only student at Ouran High School Host Club from poor familly and she has to study extra hard to keep the scholarship. Its quite an inspiring story! Lets draw extra hard too! ^^
Remeber that all the lines in blue are just construction lines and will be erased later so dont push on your pencil too much! ^_-.
Step 1: Draw the circle. Add slightly curved center line slightly to the left of the center. Now draw the horizontal eye line, it should be about 1/4 of the circle hight.
Step 2: Draw 2 elipses for the eyes on the eye line, the eye on the left is closer to the center line. Draw 2 curved lines for the face, notice that line on the left is curved more at the top part.
Step 3: Draw details in Huruhi’s eyes, add nose and mouth and chin.
Step 4: Draw eye reflections and finish mouth and nose. Add neck. Notice that line on the left is much closer to the center and also more curved at the bottom.
Step 5: Draw Haruhi’s eyelashes. Manga girls tends to have lot of detail in this area ^^. Add ears.
Step 6: Lets start with hair. There are 2 bangs over the eyebrows.
Step 7: MOre hair ^^.
Step 8: Draw hairpin and hair reflection. Check step 9 to better understand whats going on here ^_-.
Step 9: Final lines. If you are finishing with pencil make sure to lighten all the construction lines first so they are only slightly visible. Take your kneedable eraser and “stamp” the paper. Dont drag it as it would erase the lines completely. Than draw the final lines with nice dark strokes. If you are finishing with ink dont worry about erasing yet.
Step 10: wait till the ink dryes completely and then erase all the construction lines.
Step 11: Shade the top part if hair with pencil or grey marker and we are done! If you are serious about bekoming a good mangaka make sure to try to draw Haruhi again from memory, then compare it to original, corect the mistakes and try again. This way you will remember all the shapes and body parts so you can use it in designing your own characters in the future. Draw with passion! ^^Hiroshi
