Let’s learn how to draw Rosalyn from hololive CN 2st Generation today!
Rosalyn (罗莎琳) was a female Chinese Virtual YouTuber associated with hololive, as part of the Hololive Chinese 2st Generation of VUP. (Virtual UP, since content creators in Bilibili are normally nicknamed “UP” or “UP Master”)
She was a librarian from a different dimension who loved to travel the world collecting knowledge to broaden her horizons. During one of her travels, she became obsessed with trading card games (TCG). After the mayor of the other dimension found out her funds were used up on playing card games, her funding was withheld. During this desperate time, she saw Hololive’s recruitment notice and decided to remain in our world. She appeared to be a female adult with blue eyes and waist length black hair. She also dreamed to participate in a global TCG competition. She was fluent in Chinese, but has also demonstrated proficiency with the English, Japanese, and Cantonese languages. Unfortunately Rosalyn went to retirement on December 27, 2020.
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 Rosalyn 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! ^_^
