All the blue and green lines are just construction lines that will be removed later, so don’t press your pencil too hard. I will do my best to explain everything in terms you can understand.
It is easier to go through the steps in your head than on paper. Make sure there is enough space on the paper for the next steps. The dimensions in this picture are a good guide to how much space is needed.
Dab the kneaded gum onto the paper to make all the construction lines clearer. Be sure to look at the image below when inking specific parts of the construction lines; only a few areas need to be inked.
Wait until the ink has dried, then remove all the construction lines.
To add colour, start with the right colour or draw the outline of the colour in pencil.
If you want to become a real manga artist and create your own manga characters, practice drawing Dabi from memory several times. Always compare the drawing to the source and correct any mistakes you discover.
Until you are satisfied with the result, repeat this process. The result does not have to be exactly the same; don’t worry about the details. The idea is to get the overall shapes right while maintaining a good look. This is the most effective way to memorise a large number of manga shapes so that you can draw and create your own manga characters.
