How to draw Aragami Oga from Holostars 3rd Generation




Let’s learn how to draw Aragami Oga from Holostars 3rd Generation today!
Aragami Oga (荒咬オウガ) is a male Japanese Virtual YouTuber associated with hololive, as part of the Holostars 3rd Generation and formerly known as TriNero (トライネロ) before Tsukishita Kaoru’s retirement, now known as MaFia (魔フィア). He is ex-military who had been fighting for around 5,000 years in a parallel world.

Despite his appearance, Oga is man of calm and gentle demeanor, speaking with a deep, soothing voice while treating fans very kindly, which builds up a warm and calming atmosphere on his streams. He is trying to forge friendly relationships with his fans. Sometimes, he’s too keen on interacting with fans which results in frequent guerilla chat-streams. Oga showed a lot of creativity ever since his debut with drawing most of his visual assets and stream overlay by himself, frequent voice-acting on in-game lines and occasional singing skits on his Twitter later on. He plays retro games a lot, being very knowledgeable about them and having considerable admiration for retro game consoles.

His fanbase is officially called “OMAEsan” (オマエさん) and are depicted as a rainbow colored character. Oga has two mascots, “Chungami” (ちゅんがみ) and “Naisucchi” (ないすっちぃ). He suffers from motion sickness, triggered by rapid camera movements such as the ones in FPS and similar games, thus he avoids playing them. He doesn’t tolerate alcohol well and he’s not very fond of quail eggs. Oga likes The Avengers movie franchise a lot and he’s very knowledgeable about Gunpla and is an avid collector as well.

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 Aragami Oga 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! ^_^
