Let’s learn how to draw Loid Forger from Spy x Family today!
Loid Forger (ロイド・フォージャー) is one of the main male protagonists of Spy x Family series. He became an undercover spy in order to make a “world where children wouldn’t cry.” He was tasked with the mission to create a fake family in order to infiltrate a politician by the name of Donovan Desmond. Thus, in seven days he was able to adopt a daughter called Anya Forger and marry a woman named Yor Briar. He has discarded everything about his past to work for his country and acts under the codename “Twilight”.
He is a light skinned man of unknown age with short blond hair, blue eyes, and big ears. His hair is often slicked backed to varying degrees, depending on the occasion. He is quite tall and has an athletic build. Loid is often seen wearing a light green three-piece suit with a red tie when outside. He wears a lapel pin on his left lapel, in the shape of a dagger with the symbol of WISE.
As a spy, his personality is very cold and efficient for his job, doing whatever it takes to complete the mission. However, he is shown to have a kind personality. Loid’s past as a powerless war orphan, feeling despair and isolation, has seemingly stuck with him into his adult years and it becomes his motivation as a spy.
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 Loid “Twilight” Forger 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! ^_^
