Let’s learn how to draw Kiryu Coco from hololive 4th Generation today!
Kiryu Coco (桐生ココ) is a Japanese Virtual YouTuber associated with hololive, as part of the Hololive 4th Generation. She is a child dragon who is fond of human culture. She traveled from another universe to ours, just to study Japanese in a random language school. She tries really hard to keep her human form. She started to work for Hololive to pay for YAGOO’s hospital bills after she crushed him by accident. She currently lives with fellow hololive member and best friend Amane Kanata.
Her true form is 3,500 years old and seven meter tall dragon and her human form has big breasts and butt because “it would be hard to survive in the human world without them”. Her horns are somewhat asymmetrical due to accidental bump. Coco is usually playful, fun-loving, very loud and energetic, and often tries to push the boundaries of what she can try on stream. However, she can be very serious and mature as well. Coco can be very ambitious, prone to overworking herself. She is also an honorable and heroic dragon who is filled with justice. At the same time, she is an outspoken person, who often employs crude humor, foul and swearing and also enjoys teasing other members.
Her fanbase is officially called “Tatsunoko” (seahorse/dragon’s children). Coco loves the Yakuza video game series and streams it often. She is completely bilingual and speaks both Japanese and English fluently. She often displays a deep understanding of Western humor and culture. AsaCoco is Coco’s daily news show that covers the current events in Hololive. Her representative emote is a dragon.
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 Kiryu Coco 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! ^_^
