Let’s learn how to draw Hanasaki Miyabi from Holostars 1st Generation today!
Hanasaki Miyabi (花咲みやび) is a male Japanese Virtual YouTuber associated with hololive, as part of the Holostars 1st Generation. Miyabi is the first debuted member of Holostars. He is a cute kind of boy with the peach blossom trademark.
Miyabi has shy and humble nature. He is very soft-hearted, emotional person, always cheerful and calm, exuding a soothing presence whenever he streams. He rarely shows any negative emotions, even when he is genuinely surprised or when playing high tension games. However, he gets scared easily and when he screams, it can sound either helpless or desperate. However, he is occasionally mischievous and playful with the other members. Miyabi is known to be a sickly and weak person who is sensitive to the outdoors and often stays at home. If he goes outside and energetically moves around for 5-10 minutes, a thing called “frail skill” (虚弱スキル) will activate, that make him experience dizziness, shortness of breath, palpitation, nausea, headache, etc.
His fanbase is officially called “Hanami-gumi” (花見組) and in english Miyabi’s fanbase is his Flower Garden. Miyabi also has created a fictional park named Hanasaki no Mori or “Forest of Hanasaki” (花咲の森) with several animals he has drawn with creepy characteristics.
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 Hanasaki Miyabi 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! ^_^
