Let’s learn how to draw Ceres Fauna from hololive EN 2nd Generation today!
Ceres Fauna (セレス・ファウナ) is an English Virtual YouTuber associated with hololive -Council-, as part of the Hololive English 2nd Generation. She is the Keeper of “Nature”, that refers to all organic matter on the planet except mankind and she is the second concept created by the Gods. She has materialized in the mortal realm as a druid in a bid to save nature.
Fauna is usually affable, warm, and slightly mischievous, but anyone who angers her will bear the full brunt of Nature’s fury. She appears to be extremely protective of her fans and Nanashi Mumei to the point of possessiveness. Even she will not hesitate to switch to a more condescending tone when she encounters something unacceptable. It is long said that her whispers, as an avatar of Mother Nature, have healing properties. She has Kirin blood flowing in her veins, and the horns are made out of the branches of a certain tree. The Kirin is four-legged horned mythical creature originating in Chinese mythology, where it is known as the qilin. It is said to be one of the three most powerful mythical creatures, along with the dragon and phoenix.
Her fanbase is officially called “Saplings”, as in small trees. Fauna’s personal emoji is 🌿 (branch). She likes animals, drawing, the kalimba, tea, co-op games, horror, cats and peaches. Her goals are to learn Japanese, learn to sing, create an original song, perform offline collabs with genmates, learn to speedrun games and to voice act in a video game.
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 Ceres Fauna 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! ^_^
