Spread the love

Let’s get started with the Anko Mitarashi drawing.

Anko Mitarashi is a fictional character in Sakamoto; she appears to be an average student.

Anko is a Japanese word meaning “small apricot.” Her shyness contrasts with her studious personality, she uses a jacket that completes her outfit and net-like inner-wear.

She’s fond of wearing a mini-skirt while her pants are obviously showing under the skirt. I know you are eager to draw Anko Mitarashi so let’s get started.

How to Draw Anko Mitarashi from Naruto (Step-By-Step Guide)

Begin with Anko’s Pose

Begin your drawing with her pose; for the head, draw an oval shape (make sure the circle is not too big or too wide).

Add three different horizontal lines inside the circle so that the first horizontal line serves as the basis for the eyes, the second horizontal line for the basics of the nose, and the last horizontal line for the basics of the mouth.

Now add a vertically curved line on over these three horizontal lines that its serves as the alignment of these facial features.

For the chest, draw a slant rectangular shape so that it faces the left side of the body and ensure there is space between the circle of the head and the rectangular shape of the chest.

For the waist, draw a circle under the rectangular shape of the chest. So that the circle seems to touch the bottom of the chest, ensure this circle (waist) is bigger than the circle of the head.

At this point, we need to add the lines for the arms and her legs; for the left arm, draw a diagonal line from the side of the rectangular shape of the chest and bend the line towards the waist so that it is resting on the circle of the waist.

For the right arm, draw another diagonal line from the side of the chest’s rectangular shape and bend the line towards the direction of the circle you drew for the waist.

For the legs, draw a vertical line from the circle of the waist down; so that the right leg is slightly bent towards the right side of the body while the left leg remains vertically straight. With these few approaches, you can conclude that Anko is in a standing position or posture while her right leg is slanted towards the right direction, and her arms are stylishly bent towards the direction of the waist.

Anko Mitarashi Jaw Drawing

Add the shape of the jaw, which can be done by tracing down the lower part of the circle of the head into the natural shape of her jaw.

Anko Mitarashi Hair Drawing

The next step here is to draw her beautiful hair. Anko is an anime character with unbelievable and indescribable hair because you cannot tell what type of style she carries, but let me quickly show you the secret of how to draw the hair without wasting your time.

Draw a zigzag line (in the form of a horizontal line) on the circle of the head that the edges of the line are pointing towards the forehead drawing her bangs.

Add the zigzag line on the left side of her face so that it completely covers her left ear, and the sharp edges of the zigzag line are face the facial features.

Draw the spiky shape of the hair, which is at the upper part of the head; ensure this upper part of the hair covers from the left to the right side of the hair that the sharp edges of the hair are randomly pointing up.

That’s not all, and there is more!

Finish the hair by adding the right side of the hair with the last zigzag line, which is attached to the right side of the jaw, and its sharp edges are pointing down.

Draw Anko’s Forehead Protector

Since Anko’s hair covers the major parts of the forehead protector, drawing the forehead protector shouldn’t take much of your time.

Draw a horizontal line on the forehead so it almost touches the hair’s edges, and add the symbol on the forehead protector while minding the hair.

Draw Anko’s Facial Features

Anko’s facial features include fixing the eye, nose, and mouth.

Draw a horizontally curved line for the eyebrows and add a convex curve touching the eyebrow, so bit forms the shape of the eyes.

Draw the pupil by adding a convex curve inside the eyes’ shape in alignment with the horizontal line you drew for the basis of the eyes.

For the nose, add a curved line at the side of the head’s vertical line and a curve joining the end of the line, which should be aligned with the horizontal line you drew for the basis of the nose.

Draw a slightly curved horizontal line based on the mouth, and that’s all for Anko’s facial feature. You can add the curve of the ear to the right side of the head.

Draw Anko’s Facial Features

Draw Anko’s Jacket Collar

One of the special features that make Anko’s outfit complete is the jacket she’s wearing on her inner wears.

To draw this jacket, we need to begin from the upper part of the jacket, which is the jacket’s collar.

Draw the jacket’s collar so that it’s facing the left side of the body while it is wide open. The jacket’s collar is also connected to the neck and jaw. Ensure the collar is resting on the shoulder.

Anko Mitarashi Sleeves Drawing

The jacket covers all of Anko’s arms, so drawing the sleeves should be easier.

For the right sleeve, draw a curved line from the jacket’s collar in alignment with the line you drew for the right arm so that the curved part of the line (elbow joint) is blunt.

Draw a bent line from the right side of the chest, so it is also in the direction of the right arm (ensure it bends towards the elbow point) till it gets to the wrist of the hand.

Join the ends of this curved line of the right sleeve together by a little curved line; you can add another curved line at the top of the wrist, so it forms the folded part of the right sleeve.

For the left sleeve, draw a bent line from the left side of the collar that is also aligned with the direction of the left arm (pointing towards the circle of the waist), and add the line that forms the folded part of the left sleeve and that’s all for the sleeve.

Anko Mitarashi Hands Drawing

Drawing the Anko Mitarashi hands shouldn’t be a problem since the basis of the hands are already in existence, and you’ve already fixed the sleeves.

Draw the left hand, so the fingers are resting on the circle of the waist while the right hand is being folded without showing any of the fingers.

Complete Anko’s Jacket

The next step is to finish up the jacket which you started, draw a curved line from the collar at the left side to the left side of the circle you drew for the waist, and draw another curved line from the right side of the collar to the right side of the circle of the waist so that this right curved line crosses the circle of the waist pointing towards the right side of the body.

Add the shape of the jacket’s pocket to the right side of the jacket and finish the right side of the jacket by drawing a curved line from the sleeve through the hand that it’s also pointing towards the right side of the body ensure it touches the pocket of the jacket. Join the right side of the jacket together with a curved line.

To finish the left side of the jacket, draw a curved line from the left fingers resting on the waist that looks like the continuation of the curved line you first drew for the left side of the jacket.

Complete Anko’s Jacket

Draw Anko’s Inner Wear

For the innerwear’s neck, draw doubled horizontally curved lines joining the upper part of the jacket (under the jacket’s collar) together.

The innerwear has a round neck shape. Draw two separate curves in the middle of the chest so that it’s attached to the left and right sides of the jacket; these curves will help to make the shape of her chest realistic.

Add a curved line under the curve you drew for the chest (at the left side), so it’s pointing towards the waist; this will serve as the inner part of the jacket showing on the left side of the body.

Anko Mitarashi Belt Drawing

As a warrior that she is, it is a must to wear a belt which completes her outfit.

To draw the belt, draw doubled curved line from the curved line of the left jacket to the right side of the waist circle.

And join these doubled curved lines together with a horizontally curved line from the right side of the jacket to the left fingers resting on the waist.

Add a horizontally curved line under the last one, joining the fingers on the left side of the waist.

Anko Mitarashi Skirt Drawing

As earlier said, Anko is wearing a mini-skirt on the innerwear, and replicating this is very easy, draw a vertically slant line from the horizontally curved line of the belt, draw another slightly bent vertical line from the right side of the jacket in alignment to the jacket and another curved line from the belt too while minding the left fingers.

Join these lines together with a horizontally curved line, so it forms the natural shape of the mini-skirt.

Finish up The Inner Wear

We are almost there! Complete the inner outfit by drawing the lower part of the wear, which serves as the outfit’s pant; Anko’s pant is very short (doesn’t reach the knee).

Draw the pant, so it’s attached under the mini-skirt you drew. Double the helm of the pant so that it makes it real.

Finish up The Inner Wear

Anko Mitarashi Legs Drawing

Her legs are connected to the pant; therefore, draw the left leg in such a way that it is vertically straight and the right leg in a way that it is slightly bent towards the right direction while having in mind the curved part of the leg’s knee.

Add Details to Anko’s Outfit

At this stage, you don’t have to rush yourself because you have to be patient enough while adding details to your drawing, whether it’s the outline or the outfit; details are meant to be added with caution, so that you won’t miss out anything.

Firstly, you have to add lines to the inner wear (the lines can be uniform or random); the purpose of these lines is to make the inner wear have a pattern that looks like that of a “net.”

Add the hooked design on the belt and the mini-skirt of the outfit, and join the lower part of the jacket, which is connected to the legs. Erase all excess lines and dots that are not needed in the drawing.

Add Details to Anko’s Outfit

Add Enhancement

This is the last step of your drawing, which is adding enhancement to the drawing.

Enhancement is simply adding beauty to the drawing, adding shadow and highlighting to the outfit and Anko’s face.

Use the suitable color for her hair, her pupil is greyish, the inner part of her jacket is purple, use the same color for the inner wear and her pant while the skirt is of different color, and the head protector is blue and above all, use a suitable and attractive color for the jacket.
