I bet you thought I was done for the day with submitting tutorials huh? Well folks, I still have two more on the way including this one here. For my next lesson, I will be showing you guys "how to draw Hokage", step by step. If you are a Naruto fan the name of this lesson will sound normal for you. If you are not familiar with Naruto, the word “Hokage” might sound a little strange. You may be asking yourself what exactly is the meaning of Hokage. The answer to that is simple. The Hokage are what you call the leaders of Konoha which is short for the name of a village called “Konohagakure”. These individuals are the strongest in the village and so far there has been five Hokage’s. The first Hokage was Hashirama Senju, the second was Tobirama Senju, the third is actually the character I based this lesson on which is Hiruzen Sarutobi, the fourth Hokage was Minato Namikaze, and the fifth was Tsunade. I think there is also a sixth or at least a candidate that is going to be cool and his name is Danzō Shimura. There is even a chiselled sculpture called the “Hokage Monument” which has all five faces of the legendary leaders of Konoha, almost like Mount Rushmore. Anyway, I think it’s time for me to go, but have no fear because there is still one more tutorial that will be super easy, and fun. Have fun with this tutorial that will not only teach you "how to draw Sarutobi", but the third Hokage. I will be going live today for a full blown drawing session so be sure to join me for that as well. In the mean time, enjoy your drawing day, and be sure to keep a smile on your face.

How to Draw Hokage

STEP 1.

Make a circle for the head, and then add the facial guidelines. You will then draw the curved or arched line for the shoulders, and then one long vertical line for the middle of the face. This will be for his hat.

Draw a a very wide shaped "V" for the top lid of his hat, and then you can draw the very squared nose, and then finish drawing out the pipe, and add all the wrinkles for the face which should be placed around the eyes, edges of the mouth, and on the sides of the nose like you see here. Also sketch out the beard like so.

STEP 5.

You will now start finishing off this Hokage by drawing the rest of his clothing or cloak, and then add some detailing to the pipe and clothes. Make sure that there is plenty of creases and folds. Draw the inscription in the middle of the hat, and then begin erasing the visible guidelines you drew in step one.

STEP 6.

When you are all done, Hiruzen should come out looking like the drawing you see here. All you need to do now is color him in and that's it. I hope you had a ton of fun drawing this Hokage from the very popular anime, Naruto.
