How to draw Ryoko:

Foreword: Here is a guide to draw the space priate Ryoko from "Tenchi Muyo!".
1. The basic shape is made of some polygons and a few lines as shown.

It's important to get the porportions right from the start.

2. Now that we have the proportions, we can start drawing Ryoko's jaw and ears.

In character drawing, avoid using straight lines. Curve the lines slightly. It's a little hard and you need some pratice, but just keep on until you are satisfied with your lines.

3. Draw the eyelids, nose and the mouth.

Note that you only need to draw the shadow of the nose, when you see a character in a front view.

4. Finish Ryoko's face.
Start with the eyelids and the two big eyelashes.

Finish the eyes by drawing the iris and the pupil.
Remember that the upper part of the iris is a light glare.

Also draw the earfolds and the "power jewel" earring under the right ear.

5. Now that the face is done, we start on Ryoko's hair.

The upper part of the polygon marks the top of her forehead.

Start by drawing the guidelines.
Start with the locks of hair on her forehead and then the rest of her hair.

Remmber to draw the guides for the locks by her ears.

6. Connect the hair guidelines to each other, and finish the hair.
7. Finish the drawing.
Ink over the lines with a thin marker. Gently remove all pencil lines with an eraser.
8. Color your drawing.

Start by giving her face a light skintone as shown. Then fill some light blue color into the hair. Keep some light reflections in the hair, to make it look shiny.

Put a shadow in the upper 1/3 part of her eyes.

Color the eyes yellow.

That's it!
