Let’s learn how to draw Hoshimachi Suisei from hololive 0th Generation today!
Hoshimachi Suisei (星街すいせい) is a Japanese Virtual YouTuber associated with hololive, as part of the Hololive 0th Generation. While originally an independent VTuber who was eventually recruited into hololive, she is currently part of “hololive 0th gen”. She is a forever 18, a cheerful shining VTuber who deeply loves singing and idols.
Suisei is a modest, hardworking, earnest and more level-headed among members of the hololive. As multi-talented person, she is capable of drawing, editing videos, singing, cooking and is also a skilled gamer. However, she also has a childish streak and is well known for her psychopathic personality, as shown when she sometimes acts ruthless to others while still giving off a cheerful attitude. She is always cheerful and energetic, rarely showing genuine sadness in streams.
Her fanbase is officially called “Stargazers”, while in Japanese they are called “Hoshiyomi” (星詠み). Her name “Suisei” translates to “Comet” in English, and as such is usually referred to as the comet idol. Her representative emote is a comet. Her dream is to one day hold a live concert in Tokyo Budokan. Suisei lives with her older sister, who is referred to by fans as “Anemachi”. She is a large spender on gacha games.
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 Hoshimachi Suisei 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! ^_^
