Let’s learn how to draw Saki Hanakago from Platinum End today!
Saki Hanakago (花籠 咲) is one of the main female protagonists in Platinum End series. She is a human who was selected to be a god candidate by the angel Revel.
She is a fairly shy-looking girl with a round face and round brown eyes, which add to her timid appearance. Her brown hair, which falls to just above her shoulders is with a choppy fringe. Saki is a rather timid individual and kind to a fault. She hopes for the one world of smiles, where everyone is full of warmth and gentleness. Her angel is Revel.
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 Saki Hanakago 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! ^_^
