Let’s learn how to draw Senku Ishigami from Dr.Stone today!
Senku Ishigami (石神千空 (いしがみ) Ishigami Senkū) is the main protagonist of Dr. Stone series. He was de-petrified half a year before his friend Taiju and eventually created the Revival Fluid with Taiju’s help. Senku is a bright young scientist who wants to rebuild civilization after the human race suddenly turned to stone and establish a Kingdom of Science. He currently holds the title of Village Chief in Ishigami Village. As a member of the Five Wise Generals, Senku provides the ideas and initative for their large scale plans.
Senku is a slim, yet reasonably toned young man of average height. He has white hair with green highlights. His brush-like hair spikes up, with two locks of hair that drape over his face. He has sharp red eyes and pale skin. He appears to be handsome to women. His stone markings are two, symmetrical diagonal lines on top of his inner eyebrows, that appear to look like cracks around his eyes.
In a world before Petrification event, he wore a typical school uniform with a lab coat over it. After waking up in the Stone World, he switched to wearing animal skin clothing. He has Albert Einstein’s mass–energy equivalence formula (E = mc2) written in his own blood across the breast of his shirt.
Senku comes across as a straight-forward, confident, highly logical individual and arrogant character. Even so, his borderline-overconfidence does not cloud his judgment, as he is often backed up by his superior and vast knowledge of science. Senku has a very logical mind, believing that there is nothing science cannot explain. Senku never belittles those who are less knowledgeable than him. Rather, he encourages and inspires everyone around him to do better. Because of his charisma and caring nature, people tend to gather around him. He gains many allies by impressing them with his scientific knowledge or by giving them what they desire. Although he has a strong sense of justice, he often bends the rules, withholds information, and manipulates others to get what he wants, but if only for the better of his allies. However beneath his arrogance and manipulative nature lies a genuinely selfless and kind heart. What Senku lacks in physical ability, he more than makes up for with his determination. Senku is simply someone who refuses to give up on a task no matter how arduous it is.
Thanks a lot to Xaxadu 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.
If your goal is to become a real Mangaka and design your own manga characters make sure to try to draw Senku Ishigami 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! ^_^
