Let’s learn how to draw Selen Tatsuki from NIJISANJI EN’s 2nd wave today!
Selen Tatsuki (セレン 龍月) is a female English Virtual YouTuber affiliated with NIJISANJI EN’s second-wave, known as “OBSYDIA”. Selen was the last of the group to debut. She is a Lunar sky dragon descended from the moon with a gentle heart hidden underneath her mischievous nature. Despite her appearance, Selen is half-human and half-dragon. Selen is a highly decorated racer who also trains other dragons for racing.
She has an energetic, trickster-type personality and enjoys messing with people. She loves to laugh and to make other people laugh. Despite this, she has a cute, wholesome side that becomes especially noticeable when drawing or making bentos, and has gained a reputation for “gap moe”. She’s very hardworking and often goes to great lengths to support her fellow EN Livers.
She also has a strong love for gaming in general, especially shooters and retro games. She speaks English, French, Cantonese, Mandarin and is learning Korean. Her companion is named Ember. Her fans are called “Dragoons” and membership feature is “Embership”.
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 Selen Tatsuki 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! ^_^
