Let’s learn how to draw Revel from Platinum End today!
Revel (ルベル Ruberu), is one of the main protagonists in Platinum End series. He is a first-rank angel or the Angel of Emotion, who was part of the thirteen chosen angels, who would seek for God’s replacement after he ran out of energy. He selected Saki Hanakago as his God candidate. Before he was promoted to first-rank, Revel was a second-rank angel known as the Angel of Trickery.
Revel has an androgynous appearance. He has chunky ear-length hair with bangs. He wears a golden headband to secure his white locks. He has wings that come from his hips, a golden halo above his head, and golden frilled marks on his body. His eyes are thin with long lashes, making him often look taunting.
Revel was first shown to have a manipulative personality, a trait which he himself had acknowledged might be responsible for his low rank. However, he later showed a more lively, emotive, and somehow kinder personality. He cared for Saki and he has been really supportive of her. He used Mirai to protect Saki. She was also the reason why he hurried to become a first-rank angel.
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 Revel 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! ^_^
