Let’s learn how to draw Yukoku Roberu from Holostars 2nd Generation today!
Yukoku Roberu (夕刻ロベル) is a male Japanese Virtual YouTuber associated with hololive, as part of the Holostars 2nd Generation, known as SunTempo. He is the master of a hideaway bar: ROBEL. He streams before opening time. Even though there are many chances for him to drink, it doesn’t necessarily mean he is a good drinker. His motto is: Men happily believe what they wish.
Roberu is an energetic host whenever he is streaming. He talks to anyone openly, however it is hard to guess what he is thinking. Roberu the barkeeper has a fast mouth and is someone who can keep talking at length on various topics, sometimes even able to speak rapidly for nearly a minute. He can almost always prepare a funny quip for any situation.
His fanbase is officially called “Regulars” (常連さん). Although the Japanese fans refer to him as Master, given that he is a bartender, overseas fans regularly refer to him as “son”. This nickname began after a Mario Kart stream where he read a comment that asked “are ya winning son?”. He is very fond of RPGs and Gacha games, sometimes even attempting Gacha rolls on-stream. Roberu is a fan of Discovery Channel content, particularly things with Bear Grylls and Ed Stafford. He loves watching horse racing, is a die-hard fan of THE iDOLM@STER and is openly a fan of the onee-shota genre.
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 Yukoku Roberu 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! ^_^
