Let’s learn how to draw Chateau Dankwort from Love of Kill today!
Chateau Dankworth (シャトー・ダンクワース) is one of the main protagonists of Koroshi Ai series. She is the Ritzland Support Company’s newest bounty hunter. She’s a skilled assassin who coolly and pragmatically executes jobs. During one of her bounty hunter missions, Chateau Dankworth comes across Song Ryang-ha, a professional hitman. Meeting Ryang-Ha throws her off her game. She is reluctant to trust Ryang-ha and constantly rejects his romantic advances. Though reluctant, Chateau complies yet refuses to open up to him. Her origins and past are shrouded in mystery, and as a child she was discovered at the site of a certain incident.
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 Chateau Dankworth 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! ^_^
