Naruto Shippuden is one of the hit anime shows to have been featured in cartoon hosting. I had fun drawing this character because of the pinks that is featured in her outfit. Masashi Kishimoto didn't really change much of her appearance except for her clothing and some facial details. If any of you noticed, her eyes are higher, her face is longer and mature, and she now has shorter hair then her previous short hair. The outfit is O.K, she wears gloves with a pinkish hue mixed with the gray, she wears skirt like pants occupied with some dark gray shorts. She is now sleevless unlike her older appearance. I believe she becomes more attached to Naruto in the series then she ever has. Masashi said himself that the three ninjas take the place of Tsunade, Jiraiya, and Orochimaru. Sasuke takes the spot of Orochimaru, Naruto takes Jaraiya's and Sakura takes Tsunade's place. I agree with some fans that Sakura is one of the annoying and tense character in the series. She nags too much on Naruto for some ridiculous things. A character that I personally favor the most is the old villain, Orochimaru. Kishimoto should have pursued the relationships with the plot and characters instead of reluctantly putting villains that don't seem to fit the story. On another note, I referenced the drawing from a picture of Sakura that gave me inspiration. I thought that maybe instead of drawing her in a 3/4th pose, I would draw her in a front view. I'm pretty sure some of you who own a previous Naruto 'Posterzine' recognizes this pose. Anyways, I really hope you'll enjoy learning ”how to draw to draw Sakura Shippuden step by step. When you draw Sakura's face, keep in mind that her features are faintly different from the old one. Her face is a bit longer so stay keen on that tip. Well, it's time for me to submit other tutorials, so thanks for viewing!
