How to Draw Yoruka Kirihime from Saijaku Muhai No Bahamut




Let’s learn how to draw Yoruka Kirihime from Saijaku Muhai No Bahamut today!
Yoruka Kirihime (切姫 夜架) is one of the female protagonists of Undefeated Bahamut Chronicle light novel and anime series. She was the princess of the fallen nation of Koto, that was destroyed by the former Arcadia Empire. She possesses a natural talent for killing and has killed a person at the mere age of five, and because of that she lost her status as princess of the country. Her younger brother succeeded the throne and Yoruka’s fighting skills allowed her to join the royal guard for her brother. She later becomes an assassin for the Old Arcadia Empire. She is sworn to serve the royal family of Arcadia and approaches the former prince Lux Arcadia as a servant.

Yoruka is a slim girl with long black hair. She wears a black yukata which is tied by a red obi around her waist. She has heterochromatic eyes, her right eye is blue and her left eye is purple. While she is cute, Yoruka has shown to be a cold ruthless assassin when it’s necessary and she is also extremely skilled at fighting. She also has the sharpest instinct. When she is serving her “master”, she is kind yet still has an evil air to her.

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 Yoruka Kirihime 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! ^_^
