Let’s learn how to draw Ike Eveland from NIJISANJI EN’s 4th wave today!
Ike Eveland (アイク・イーヴランド) is a male English Virtual YouTuber affiliated with NIJISANJI EN’s fourth-wave, known as “Luxiem”. Ike was the third of the group to debut. He is a novelist from the past who seems somewhat closed-off. When an idea for his next work sparks, he becomes a completely different person.
He has lots of hidden sides and undiscovered depths in personality. Generally, he’s gentle and mild-mannered, but he can be competitive when the situation calls for it. Though he’s usually the keeper of sanity and the calm member, he’s been shown to be an unexpected prankster that makes jokes when people least expect it. He can be very bright and animated when talking about things he likes and quick to defend things he holds dear.
Ike’s fans are called “Quilldren” (“quill” + “children”). Ike is Swedish. He is fluent in both Swedish and English. He is also proficient in Japanese. He has kampanaphobia (the fear of bells). He likes stories in any form, junk food, music, wholesome things, cute art, caviar toast, visual novels, soft drinks, figure collecting, language learning, songwriting, music production and horror movies.
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 Ike Eveland 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! ^_^
