How to Draw Luca Kaneshiro from Nijisanji EN’s 4th wave




Let’s learn how to draw Luca Kaneshiro from NIJISANJI EN’s 4th wave today!
Luca Kaneshiro (ルカ・カネシロ) is a male English Virtual YouTuber affiliated with NIJISANJI EN’s fourth-wave, known as “Luxiem”. He was the first of the group to debut.

Luca is a Mafia boss from the past with a slight temper.
Once, he saw a guy beating someone up and he decided to intervene. After a small misunderstanding, his path crossed with a detective Mysta Rias, and both were transported to the present by a mysterious force.

Luca is a sweet and energetic person who is sometimes compared to a golden retriever. However, he is always down for a fight, whether it’s to show-off his own strength or to protect the weak. He can also be surprisingly innocent and dense from time to time. He doesn’t have problems making friends with people, and can immediately walk up to a stranger and start a small talk.

Luca’s lion companion is named “Augustus”. Augustus seems to be growing bigger and bigger every stream, however, he shrinks from time to time too. Luca’s fans are called “Lucubs”.He has an australian accent and he is able to speak in Tagalog (a little), Japanese (learning), and Grill. Luca likes jewellery, fancy things, gambling, tattoos, food, athletics, horror games, NIJISANJI.

Step 1

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.

Step 9

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.

Step 10

Wait till the ink is nice and dry and erase all the construction lines.

Step 11

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 Luca Kaneshiro 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! ^_^
