"I don't wanna be "the bee's knees". I don't wanna be any kind of "knees"! I just wanna be a normal girl, with normal knees". That is a quote from one of the main characters from the anime RWBY. Today I will show you "how to draw Ruby Rose", step by step. She is a very sweet looking girl that wears a blood red cape. Her hair is also almost the same color as her attire and she has a very sweet innocent face. What some people may not know is that Ruby is the first main character that was introduced with the first airing of RWBY. The weapon that Ruby uses is a High Caliber Sniper Scythe or the Crescent Rose. I had fun recreating Ruby because she has this softness about her appearance that really is a pleasure to draw. I hope you like this lesson and remember there are more RWBY lessons coming your way.
