Let’s learn how to draw Nasse from Platinum End today!
Nasse (ナッセ) is one of the main protagonists in Platinum End series. She is a special-rank angel or the Angel of Purity, who was part of the thirteen chosen angels, who would seek for God’s replacement after he ran out of energy. She selected Mirai Kakehashi as her God candidate. Before she formally met Mirai, Nasse would constantly look out for him and considered herself his guardian angel. Her primary reason for choosing him was to help him achieve happiness.
Nasse has short white hair, long wings, and big red eyes. She has a halo above her head and wears invisible-like clothes with gold edges on them. As a Mirai’s life saving angel, she knows everything Mirai has been through, everything which is related to him, notably him being mentally abused by his relatives. Although Nasse had a carefree personality, she was also extremely single-minded when it came to achieving her goals. She was determined to go to any length to help Mirai attain true happiness. However, she could also be callous when it came to others. She also has a good eye for detecting lies.
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.
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.
Wait till the ink is nice and dry and erase all the construction lines.
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 Nasse 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! ^_^
