How to draw Rika from Higurashi

how to draw rika from higurashi step 1

STEP 1.

First lightly sketch out her bangs. This may be a little bit of a frustrating proses considering her bangs look like they are all over the place and un even. Make sure that you are not making your lines to dark, if you make your lines too dark it is going to be harder to erase your lines in case you make a mistake or you need to redo certain areas on her bangs.

Now draw out her face. This does not need to be perfect you can always go back and reshape the face in case you don't like the way it was drawn out. Remember to keep your lines light.

Now it is time to start drawing her eyes. Don't be too concentrated on detail at the moment this will be added on later. To help you get her eyes even with one another lightly draw the action lines across her face, make sure that the action lines are not too dark so you can erase them later on.

Now draw in her eye brows and the lines above her eyes. This gives her more charter and makes her look more friendly. However to those who have watched the show you would know that she is not always this friendly looking. Also don't forget her nose and mouth.

Now starts the shading. Start with the tops of her eyes and make the line darker, along with the bottom of her eyes as well. also add on where her eyes are shiny, there is one larger round area and one small circular dot. Lightly sketch out where the shadows will be on her face. this may sound a little bit stupid but it will help you locate where the shadows across her face are easier.

STEP 12.

Finally after finishing shading in her hair and face all that is left to do is her eyes. Her eyes should not take that long to shade in. The crescent shape area of her eye that you drew out earlier will be lighter then the rest of her eye make sure that you do not shade that area to dark. After finishing with her eyes you are finished.
