Let’s learn how to draw William G. Maryblood from Saihate no Paladin today!
William G. “Faraway Paladin, Will” Maryblood (ウィリアム・G・マリーブラッド ) is the main protagonist of The Faraway Paladin series. He was human who died and was reincarnated into another world. He was brought to the City of the Dead as an infant by demons with the intention to be used as a sacrifice. However, he was found and taken in by a group of undead heroes who died 200 years ago. These three undead were Blood, Mary, and Augustus. Each of them taught him various combat, survival, and educational skills they each specialized in until the age of adulthood.
William is a young man with chestnut brown hair and deep blue eyes. He was born with vague memories of a past life. His previous life was lamentable which becomes his determination to lead a proper life in his current one. William has an earnest and caring personality. He cares for the well-being of others and has the urge to help those desperately in need. As an adult he leaves the city in search for adventure and civilization while he restores the faith of his guardian deity Gracefeel.
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 William G. Maryblood 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! ^_^
