Let’s learn how to draw Lacia from Beatless today!
Lacia (レイシア, Reishia) is the main female protagonist of Beatless series. She is an android who escaped from the Tokyo research facility of Memeframe. A chance encounter brings the Lacia face to face with Arato Endo. After saving his life from hijacked electronics, she immediately forms a contract with him, that she becomes Arato’s property. Lacia is one of a select band of special hIE (an acronym of humanoid Interface Element.
Her light lavender hair reaches her shoulder blades. Her eyes and eyelashes are the same color as her hair. She standardly wears a largely white armor that covers her torso front and back. Under this armor she has a black leotard with black sleeves that cover up to her knuckles. She wears white stilettos with black heels. Like all hIEs, she has hair accessories that contain her native AI. She is often seen with the Black Monolith, Lacia’s weapon, which doubles as a cannon and shield. It gives her the ability to make things invisible. She also has a belt with four small wing-shaped plates that attach to her waist during combat.
Like all hIE’s she doesn’t have a soul or feelings. However she is good with understanding and interacting with people. Lacia can cook, clean, do laundry and other standard services that hIE’s provide.
Thanks a lot to Ricladz Querien for request. ^_^
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 Lacia 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! ^_^
