Let’s learn how to draw Yukihana Lamy from hololive 5th Generation today!
Yukihana Lamy (雪花ラミィ) is a Japanese Virtual YouTuber associated with hololive, as part of the Hololive 5th Generation. She is a snow elf from a noble family renowned in the remote Land of Silver. She decided to leave her home, along with her snow fairy companion Daifuku, who looks like a small polar bear inside a pot and is named after a Japanese sweet, after her heart was touched by the fun and colorful streams from hololive.
Lamy is pure, all-loving, soft-spoken, kind and gentle. Her serious personality belies her naive, sheltered nature. She is also shy and easily flustered. Due to her motherly aura she is called “Lamy-mama”. She shows great empathy when interacting with her fellow mates and fans alike. She is close with the rest of the fifth generation of hololive, especially Shishiro Botan, who is acting like a protective husband, when they two are playing horror games. Fans call her horror playthroughs with Shishiro Botan the “ShishiLamy horror date”.
Despite being a snow elf, she doesn’t like cold climate. Her surname, “Yukihana” (雪花) means “snowflake”. She likes spicy food, handcraft, aquariums, planetariums, dioramas, Japanese culture, traditional Japanese sake and anime about time travel. Talking and drinking streams are another favorite of Lamy’s and her drinking habits have earned her the reputation of being the drunkard of gen 5. Her fanbase is officially called “Yuki-min” (雪民) which means snow people.
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 Yukihana Lamy 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! ^_^
