You might be wondering how to draw Naruto. Here, I'm gonna show you how to draw the most popular Japanese cartoon character in pencil.

But before that, let's see who is Naruto?

Naruto is a manga by Masashi Kishimoto with an anime TV series adaptation. Its main character, Naruto Uzumaki, is a loud, hyperactive, adolescent ninja who constantly searches for approval and recognition, as well as to become Hokage, acknowledged as the leader and strongest of all ninja in the village.

Naruto places strong emphasis on character development. Almost all outcomes are a result of decisions, character, and personality; very few things happen just because of chance.

At first, emphasis is placed on Naruto, Sasuke, and Sakura, who are the members of Team 7. However, other characters are developed, such as Kakashi, Guy, and Jiraiya, as well as Naruto's peers in the other Genin teams and other villages.

Okay, that's it for now. Let's learn how to draw Naruto in pencil drawing. It's easy! Just follow these steps...

How To Draw Naruto - Step No. 1

For beginners, I would suggest you to have a still 2D picture of Naruto. It's easy and I would recommend you to get Naruto comic since you can learn how to draw different facial expression of Naruto and other Naruto characters.

Or, if you find the drawings inside Naruto comics are too small for you to learn, then I would suggest you to get one of these Naruto wall posters below...

Already got one? Now, take a piece of paper (preferably a cheap A4 photocopy paper) and a drawing pencil set. (Do you know what is a drawing pencil set? Click here)


Select a nice place to sit. Make a cup of coffee or hot chocolate if you want.

Ready? Go to the next step...

How To Draw Naruto - Step No. 2

Take a HB or B grade graphite pencil. Use it to draw pencil sketch face of your Naruto pencil drawing. Start by drawing pencil sketch of an inverted egg-shaped oval first.
How to draw Naruto - Sketch 1

Look at your Naruto picture and create a vertical line to locate which way Naruto is facing.

Create an elongated horizontal line at the upper part (eyes position).

How to draw Naruto - Sketch 2

Create a circle at each side of the face, a short horizontal line at the lower part (mouth) of the face to create his nose and mouth. Create a rectangle at the top for his head band.

Then, stop looking at your pencil sketch face of Naruto and compare it with your subject.

Ask these two questions:-

1. Does it has a correct size to be on your paper?
2. Does it has a correct angle according to your Naruto picture?

If the answer is NOT to any of these questions...Erase your drawing pencil sketch, and re-sketch your pencil sketch face of Naruto according to the correct size and angle.

Okay? Finish drawing your pencil sketch face of Naruto? Let's continue to the next step...
