Can you even put to paper Megumin from KonoSuba ?? Her mischievous smile ? and the unprecedented way in which she goes “Explosion!”. Even as her nimble figure staggers to keep her feet firm on the ground??
These artists have tried to bring our beloved Megumin from the hit anime KonoSuba to life in their own little ways. If you wish to learn how to put Megumin’s nimble form to paper, refer to Seiji Senpai’s “Drawing Megumin” tutorial. He starts with a basic body form for a sleek female body donning a hat. Remember, the hat is an essential part of Megumin’s overall form ??.
Then, he details her skirt and the shirt ?. Finally, he completes the drawing by adding Megumin’s cloak? and her hat?. Get the cloak and the hat right and you’ve nailed Megumin. With a solid black outline using a black Copic, you can seal the deal with the drawing part✏️??.

Next, Fanluke Art has devised a step-by-step guide on filling every inch of Megumin’s agile little form with colors?️?. She adds a human element to Megumin’s skin. Even as she uses darker shades such as beige, peach, and pink towards the outside. It also lightens the tone with a cream and light pink ? towards the insides.
For her hair, Fanluke Art plays with a blend of black and grey to get a shade she fondly calls, “70% cool grey.” You can further blend this with white for a better light effect. A different part of the hair she colors in chocolate brown, a mixture of generous black and rich brown while endowing the highlights in this section with some light brown??. She follows suit for Megumin’s clothes? and her cloak as well ?.
Basically, she advises you keep it light in the shiny, highlighted part of the streaks of her hair. This maintains the light effect ?. Choose a lighter shade of the color you use to fill the rest of the area, say grey for black✒️. You get the bottom line here: blend dark and light shades of the chosen colors to create the highlight effect??.
