Let’s learn how to draw Shirogane Noel from hololive 3rd Generation today!
Shirogane Noel (白銀ノエル) is a Japanese Virtual YouTuber associated with hololive, as part of the Hololive 3rd Generation. She is an easy-going knight captain, though she has a dangerous side where she attempts to solve all her problems with muscle power. As much as this fluffy, meatheaded knight hungers for power, she came to the world of VTubers for training.
Noel is a clumsy but mostly wholesome knight, with a more girlish voice than her appearance would suggest. Her character archetype is best described as having more muscle than brains. She often streams video games, but is rarely seen actually doing well in them. Noel’s personality perfectly embodies the two parts of her—that of a knight, and of a woman. She’s determined, patient, gentle, caring, and affectionate all in one. Once Noel sets out to do something, she will stop at nothing to achieve it.
Her fanbase is officially called “Order of Shirogane” while in Japanese they are called “Shirogane kishi-dan” (白銀騎士団). She prefers to be called Danchou (団長) which roughly translates to captain or leader, with her being the Guild leader of the Order of Shirogane. Her representative emote is a pair of crossed swords, due to her Knight theming.
Noel was one of the primary ASMR-focused members of Hololive, though nowadays, Noel’s content is very varied and spread out, including but not limited to video game streams, comfortable chat streams and karaoke streams. Overall, due to her presence, demeanor and voice, Noel’s streams are usually very calming and relaxing to the viewer. Noel shares an especially strong bond with Shiranui Flare. She gets jealous if Flare so much as interacts with someone else, and since Flare is somewhat of a chick magnet, this happens very often.
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 Shirogane Noel 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! ^_^
