Hi! We saw the lack of anime drawing lessons on our website. But we woke up and created drawing lesson that you can see now. Today we are going to draw Naruto.
First we should draw a stickman. Naruto is a skinny teenager, he is about 13 years. The shoulders of our hero is considerably less than that of an adult. The head should look bigger relative to the shoulders than in drawing lessons adults.
If your stickman looks like our sample, you can proceed to the second step and draw the silhouette of the body. Draw the contours of the body, hands and feet in the form of simple shapes. At this stage, we should avoid athletic figure. As we have already mentioned, Naruto has a thin build.
You should be especially careful with the neck, forearms and lower legs. These parts of the body is not immediately noticeable individually. But they all amount create an athletic or slim body. You can see the figure of the Incredible Hulk as an example.
We have anime drawing lessons and now this style will be very signally. In this step we should draw the contours of the eyes, ears and hair. Also draw two short lines which show the location of the nose and mouth. Consider better all lines that are added in this step. Pay attention to the distance from one end line to the other.
At the end of this stage you should have a sketch similar to this:
How to determine the style of anime? The first thing we look at a face of the character and, especially, at the eyes. So in this step we will draw the eyes. If you want to draw the eyes you should draw large and elogated eyes.
Don’t forget to draw a famous lable on the fabric.
Ok, now we have a step in which we will draw Naruto’s jacket. Note the folds in the fabric. And note the clasp – as you can see, the clasp starts from the collar and then runs through the entire jacket.
In this step we will draw the final contours of the hand and erase unnecessary lines from the previous steps. Drawing of the hands is always a daunting moment. Consider Naruto’s hands and fingers on the individual pictures:
And the full figure looks like this:
Now it’s time to draw the pants and legs.
In this step we will draw the shadows. You couldn’t see the complex shadows in the original Naruto’s story. So we made our pattern without the complex shadows. You can just draw the border of the shadows and paint them. Use a pencil, avoid strong pressure on the pencil when drawing shadows. Use light movements.
