Let’s learn how to draw Wein Salema Arbalest from Tensai Ouji no Akaji Kokka Saisei Jutsu today!
Wein Salema Arbalest (ウェイン・サレマ・アルバレスト) is one of the main male protagonists of The Genius Prince’s Guide to Raising a Nation Out of Debt series. He is the extremely capable heir and is the crown prince to the royal line of the Kingdom of Natra.
Wein is a tall, surprisingly athletic and agile man with long messy brown hair and striking golden eyes. He is proficient in sword fighting, gained from his time in the military school, and is able to ride a horse.
Wein is lauded as a genius politician, strategist, and swordsman among other things. He is seen by his vassals as a brilliant prince and is loved by the citizens of his country. However, underneath his princely facade lies a treasonous attitude of wanting to ignore all of his duties as much as he possibly can. He’s actually lazy and pessimistic at heart. Wein has expressed his desire to sell his motherland and live a self-sufficient life because of his belief that Natra is a weak country. It is shown that Wein is highly intelligent, and he uses this to outwit his adversaries, usually resulting in the growth of his kingdom.
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 Wein Salema Arbalest 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! ^_^
