Let’s learn how to draw Arurandeisu from Holostars 1st Generation today!
Arurandeisu (アルランディス) is a male Japanese Virtual YouTuber associated with hololive, as part of the Holostars 1st Generation. He is an Italiano who always tricks people with his dandy looks and the actual personality he has.

Arurandeisu is calm and collected person who tries before thinking when it comes to new challenges. He is seen as a fatherly figure by both fans and fellow Holostars, as well as other VTubers. As a good tutor he is good at teaching his viewers various topics, as he has held several streams teaching subjects such as science-related topics and Japanese internet slang. He is also open to learning things from other people. When he plays games, he sort of empathizes and gets into the character’s role a bit too much.

His fanbase is officially called “Familiaran” (ファミリアラン). He loves making clips from his own stream and shown to be quite skilled at video editing. He is a big fan of airsoft guns. He has held several gun maintenance ASMR streams featuring them. He has a bad sense of direction. He’s able to read and talk to viewers in english.

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 Arurandeisu 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! ^_^
