I would've done a better one but my computer is driving me CRAZY D< UUGGHHHH. ~SpiritLion16
requested a tutorial on Naruto style males and females as well as hair. I included a few other things just cause they struck me as important.
This was also my attempt to help other Naruto style artists learn to draw Naruto style and not need to edit, trace or steal. Yes this is a problem in the community lol and hopefully this might help. Or they'll trace it and pass it off as their own which would be hilariously ironic.
I'm using Addi my Naruto oc from my ~Addi-Pink-Power
account, and her sexy-no-jutsu or m!self lol cause I can. I didn't really go into spikes cause I figured that'd be self-explanatory but essentially Naruto is just learning basic HUMAN anatomy and THEN learning the style. Your style will NEVER look at good as Kishimoto's if you just practice what you see in the anime because the anime is waayyyyyyyy lower quality then the manga lol Learn from REAL PEOPLE and take a freaking FIGURE DRAWING CLASS. Style comes second, basic understanding of anatomy is FIRST. Anyone that gives that bull shit that Picasso had his own style has clearly never seen Picasso's early work which was extremely realistic.
This is also BASIC FORM. This doesn't go into cross-dressing, bigger busts, skinnier forms, manly girls and girly men. This is straight up gender differences, as well as extremely average looking characters. I included the skeletons so you can see that you need to include the skulls so the head doesn't look wonky and rib cages help make a person not look too skinny.
For the hair I used references from the anime, just google Sasori, Hinata and Hidan and you'll find them. I just didn't want to include screen shots and risk getting this flagged as art theft or something. Those skulls aren't very good lol but it's just to remind you that a skull exists so don't make the eyes too big and don't forget the noses.
I'd also like to add that if you're practicing the style you might want to observe the MANGA more than the anime. No offense to the anime but it's really not as good as manga. The colors are nice but it's just really cheap looking, I loved the anime as a kid but as an adult the anatomy really isn't very good, the animation is painfully basic and dull and the movement just looks cheesy both English and Japanese versions.
