Let’s learn how to draw Enna Alouette from NIJISANJI EN’s 3rd wave today!
Enna Alouette (エナー・アールウェット / えなー あーるうぇっと) is a female English Virtual YouTuber affiliated with NIJISANJI EN’s third wave, known as “Ethyria”. She was the third of the Ethyria group to debut. She is a blue bird fluttering in the heavens and she sings a love song for the souls of the living. Alouette was turned into a bird angel due to having ornithorphobia, a fear of birds.
Her human soul was taken to heaven for duty work since she was thriving in hell instead of repenting. Therefore she was turned into an angel in an attempt to force her to do good. Her twintails end in ringlets to add to the angelic appearance. Her left wing was replaced with an artifical one after a particularly bad crash. When singing she can throw down with the best rock vocalists if need be. She speaks English, Mandarin, Japanese and Gibberish. Her hobbies are singing, reading, cooking & eating, insulting, voice acting, teasing & pranking and gardening.
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 Enna Alouette 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! ^_^
