Let’s learn how to draw Miyuki Shirogane from Kaguya sama wa Kokurasetai today!
Miyuki Shirogane (白銀 御行,しろがね みゆき, Shirogane Miyuki) is one of the main protagonists of Kaguya-sama Love is War series. He is a second-year high school student at Shuchi’in Academy and the president of the 67th and 68th Student Council. Miyuki is a monstruously smart, handsome young man with blonde hair. His eyes are dark blue and appears to glare, due to his constant sleep deprivation and nearsightedness. He usually wears the regular Shuchi’in Academy black male uniform adorned with the Aiguilette, the golden chain-like accessory around his neck, as per his authority as the student council president.
Shirogane is a diligent student who, despite his underprivileged background, climbed his way to the top of his class through hard work and determination. Due to this hard past, he has been led to a frugal lifestyle of part-time jobs and hard work to support his family. He’s skilled in management as well, so he is respected by others as a genius. He studies for ten hours a day and works part-time jobs too, resulting in a life where no one knows how or when he even sleeps. He often puts his own health at risk for the sake of his work. He also maintains the illusion of a perfect person at all times, in order to project a proper image befitting of the SC President of Shuchi’in High. Shirogane holds himself in high regard, consistently working to maintain his perfect image. Although he excels at studying, Shirogane has proven to be painfully talentless in a variety of other activities, such as sports, singing, dancing, and more.
Shirogane is unwaveringly kind and virtuous, never putting any of his goals above the well-being of others. He is extremely supportive and generous, willing to help any students with their problems. He will never turn down an opportunity to listen to people who come to talk to him or do favors for them.
Thanks a lot to Miiriu 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 Miyuki Shirogane 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! ^_^
