In this tutorial you'll get a chance to draw the handsome Usui Takumi from Kaichou wa Maid Sama again with his love interest, Misaki Ayuzawa! Though she considered him her stalker or perverted alien, he's won her heart. BUT I fell in love with this picture and had to draw it for the anime kiss... completely digitally in mostly my SAI and Adobe Photoshop programs. I'll have some tips for you and I hope you find this tutorial enjoyable. Let me know what you think of this tut by commenting, faving or clicking on "Love It"! And thank you so much for supporting my previous anime tuts! Peace n love to ya!
Description: Here is a little pre-tip before the actual drawing steps. The guidelines won't have the blue profile face and chin because it obstructs the drawing. Just in case you need a guide for getting those chins in. Here it is. The arrows show how the chins are almost on the same curved line. Hope this helps. Now on with the steps!
Description: We are taking a shortcut in the guidelines. Draw the two circles with the long lines for the neck, shoulder and Usui's hand. Sketch them with a No. 2 pencil. Remember to do it lightly for easy erasure.
Description: Without lighting, we have a flat subject. That's what makes Usui & Misaki so interesting, dramatic lighting. The red arrows are direction of light. Blue arrows are the shadows him being turned away from the sun, and is Misaki in his shadow. Here are three common sources of lighting that helps bring out certain effects in a face. DRAMATIC is made by overhead light. This can be in midday sun or strong moonlight. MYSTERIOUS is made when the lighting comes upward or beneath the face like holding a candle or flashlight. You'll see this effect used a lot in graphic or noir novels. CONVENTIONAL is the most popular. It is made at a 45-degree angle light placed to the side, above the subject and slightly toward the foreground.
Description: Last but not least, I want to show you how great a pencil is. And you can get these same effects with a regular No. 2 pencil. The first picture shows how to hold your pencil for Overhand (great for writing & details) and Underhand (great for shading large areas in wide strokes). You can practice tone shading and take it a step further with the Tone Exercise. I'm closing now. Let me know what you think of this tutorial. I love hearing from you.
