Hello again fellow artists and welcome back to another tutorial lesson. Today I was in the mood to draw a lot of anime characters from the popular anime series Naruto. There is one particular character that reminds me of Snake from Metal Gear and his name is Kakashi Hatake. Now, because I am a fan of Metal Gear Solid and Naruto I figured today’s tutorial should be on how to draw Kakashi Hatake. As you all may know this character is a very interesting one. I know you’re wondering who he is and the answer is simple, he is the one with the black ninja mask that goes across his face and rest slightly under his eyes. He also wears a thick headband on his head which drops just enough to cover his left eye that was scared from an intense battle with the rock ninjas. But since your reading this description you already know what he looks like, don’t you. Let me explain exactly how this brave warrior got his scar. You see, while Kakashi was fighting with the rock ninjas, he jumped in front of Obito to save him from the enemy's kunai, and because of that bold move he ended up losing his left eye which later healed into a scar. After that incident they were fleeing after the fight, but unfortunately a technique called rockfall was engaged. Obito decided to make a very bold and brave move so that Kakashi wouldn’t get injured; he pushed him out of the way. Obito gave Kakashi a gift, his Sharingan eye. Rin helped place the new eye into Kakashi’s injured eye socket. Obito died minutes after the transplant. Kakashi is also the leader of Team 7 and was formally a member of the ANBU which is short for ANsatsu Senjutsu Tokushu BUtai. I think that translates into Special Assassination and Tactical Squad in Japanese but I could be wrong. My brother actually told me what the meaning of that was, and he should know since he does a lot of internet surfing. He is the type of kid that loves feeding his mind even if it is about games or anime cartoons. Anyways let’s get back to talking about Kakashi. If any of you follow along with this particular anime series you will know that his father was the legendary White Fang of Konoha. The history of this popular Japanese anime/manga character can go on for hours. I’m sure most of you already know about what he is and what kind of background he holds. I had a lot of fun with this tutorial because I got a chance to practice drawing hands which I almost perfected while drawing him out. It is now your turn to learn how to draw Kakashi Hatake from Naruto step by step. The detailed instructions will help make this learning experience a whole lot easier. Peace out people.
