Let’s learn how to draw Hitomi Chris from hololive 1st Generation today!
Hitomi Chris (人見クリス) was a Japanese Virtual YouTuber associated with hololive, as part of the Hololive 1st Generation. Her debut video was uploaded to YouTube on the 3rd of June 2018. Unfortunately, she was terminated due to an incident that lead to a contract breach. Hitomi was officially sacked from hololive and her information was removed from their website. Her channel was deleted and she hid her twitter account.
Rumors say she asked a male person to buy some very expensive equipment so she could become a Vtuber. He gave her money, then she went ahead and applied for Hololive’s audition and passed. She didn’t need the money anymore, though she kept his money anyway. Later, after her audition, said person began to post evidence about his involvement in Chris’ audition by posting their chat logs and her audition video online. The drama quickly spiraled out of control and made Hololive end Chris’ contract.
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 Hitomi Chris 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! ^_^
