How to Draw Vesemir from The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf




Let’s learn how to draw Vesemir from The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf today!
Vesemir is the main male protagonist of The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf series. He is one of the franchise’s most mysterious characters. Vesemir was the oldest and most experienced witcher at Kaer Morhen in the 13th century and acted as a father figure to Geralt and the other witchers. The animated movie The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf gave fans a glimpse into his life before becoming Geralt’s teacher.

Witcher fans came to know and love aged Uncle Vesemir, but in anime movie, we see a different version of him. Young and lusting after gold, Vesemir takes only the most lucrative contracts. He appears cavalier and unfeeling towards humans, children included, and would seemingly rather do anything else than train the next generation of Witchers.

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 Vesemir 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! ^_^
