Spread the love

I will show you how to draw Kankuro from Naruto in this article. These are easy steps that beginners can handle, therefore, let us take a closer look at Kankuro Drawing.

Kankuro is a character from the Naruto series.

He is a shinobi of Sunagakure, and he is typically calm, level-headed, and easygoing; Kankuro dresses in a fashion reminiscent of feudal Japan with his head protector.

He wears a complete outfit, including long sleeves and long pants, he’s fond of using gloves during a fight, and he also wears sandals.

How to Draw Kankuro from Naruto

Start with Kankuro’s Pose

Have you wondered why people think drawing is complex? It is simply because they don’t know the best way to start the drawing.

Let’s begin with Kankuro’s pose, draw a circle for the head; ensure the circle is not too big but of a standard size of the head, and draw three slightly curved horizontal lines for the eyes, nose, and mouth while ensuring that these horizontally curved lines are strategically placed in their natural position.

Now add a slightly vertically curved line on these horizontal lines so that it serves as the alignment for his facial features.

Draw a slightly bent square shape for the chest while leaving a little gap between the head and the chest for the neck to be fixed.

Draw a circle (which should be more significant than the head) at the bottom of the shape of the chest while the circle is resting on the chest; this circle will serve as the waist.

The next thing when it comes to his pose is the legs, make vertically slant lines from the circle of the waist and make sure the lines are not close together.

Then add the shape of the feet under the lines for the legs, and ensure the feet are facing the front in alignment with the separation of the legs.

For his arms, draw the left arm in a way that it is pointing towards the right direction of his body, and draw the right arm in a way that it is pointing towards his chest.

With these few approaches, you can quickly tell that Kankuro is in a standing position or posture while his legs remain in a separate position.

Start with Kankuro’s Pose

Draw Kankuro’s Head Protector

Here’s the magic to quickly draw Kankuro’s head protector.

Draw vertical lines at the sides of the circle of the head so that the line at the right side touches the circle while the vertical line at the left side is beside the circle; make a sharp edge at the end of the vertical lines that it looks like a horn and join the end of the edges with a slightly curved horizontal line.

Make another horizontally curved line at the top of the basic of the eyes and add a vertically curved line at the end of this horizontally curved line (make sure the vertically curved lines touch the chest).

Finish up the head protector by joining the vertical lines at the side of the circle of the head to the vertically curved line that touches the chest with a wavy line so that it looks like the fish’s tail.

But wait, there’s more!

Draw the symbol on the head protector, which looks like a rectangular shape with a curved upper and lower horizontal line.

Draw Kankuro’s Eye line and Face Paint Design

Now that you are done with the Kankuro head protector drawing, you can fix the eyeliner and face paint design.

Let us start with the eye line, make a diagonal line on the horizontally curved line of the eyes and head protector, and cover these diagonal lines with a little horizontal line that looks like a slant square shape of the eye.

Do you know one funny and fun part of the Kankuro drawing?

You can play around with his face paint with your pencil by making different types of designs on his face.

Let’s look at this fantastic design and draw a zigzag line at the sides of the face (that looks like an open and close bracket at the left and right side of the face, respectively).

Draw another zigzag line at the chin so it has a blunt edge under the mouth, and use a line to join these zigzag lines at the side of the face to the one at the chin.

Use this avenue to draw a curved line at the bottom of the circle of the head in alignment with the circle; this serves as the jaw, and that’s it!

Draw Kankuro’s Eyes, Nose, and Mouth

The next step here is to draw the facial features, which are the eyes, nose, and mouth.

For the eyes, make a dot inside the slant square shape of the eyeliner while making some vertically curved lines at the side of the eye line, so it serves as the eyebrow of the eyes to complete the eyes.

You can also make a zigzag line like the letter” V” in the middle of the eyebrows.

For the nose, draw the shape of the nose on the horizontally curved line you drew for the basic of the nose so that it looks like the letter “W.”

For the mouth, trace the horizontally curved line you drew for the basics of the mouth and make a little zigzag line under it that it forms the natural shape of Kankuro’s mouth.

Kankuro Sleeves Drawing

What type of sleeves is he putting on? Kankuro is wearing a long sleeve which helps to protect his body. To replicate these sleeves is very easy.

Draw the right sleeve from the wavy part of the head protector so that it’s resting on the chest in alignment with the basis of the right arm (you don’t have to be too perfect while drawing this).

Complete the sleeves by drawing the left sleeve too.

Use the same technique you used for drawing the right sleeve and the left sleeve. All you need to know is that the left sleeve must align with the basis you drew for the left arm.

Kankuro Sleeves Drawing

Draw Kankuro’s Bodysuit and Side Pocket

Yes! Here is a beautiful place to carry out your skill and test your creative ability.

The next step is to draw Kankuro’s bodysuit first before the side pocket, which is still part of the bodysuit.

We’ll have to divide the bodysuit into two, the upper part of it and the lower part.

For the upper part, quickly make a rough vertically slant line from the sleeves while minding the circle of the waist.

Now to the lower part, draw a horizontally curved line close to the top of the waist circle; this will help align the lower part of the bodysuit.

For the left pant, draw a slant line at the circle of the waist and extend it to the direction of the left leg while it’s curved at the lower part of the knee (the limit of the pant).

Draw a free-hand vertical line from the horizontally curved line, which aligns the lower part of the bodysuit.

Join these vertical lines of the left pant with a curved horizontal line.

Check this out: the right side of the pant can also be separated into two, the upper and lower parts.

For the upper part, draw a little vertically curved line from the waist circle so that the curved part touches the line of the left side of the pant.

Draw a vertical slant line from the horizontally curved line, the lower bodysuit’s alignment to the right leg’s direction, and join these vertical lines with a horizontal line.

Add two more horizontal lines joining these vertical lines together, and that’s for the upper part of the right side of the pant.

For the lower part, draw a horizontally slant line under the upper part while leaving a little space, and add a vertically curved line (draw it with your free hand) at the end of the horizontal line so that it doesn’t exit the limit of the pant (under the knee joint); finish the lower part of the pant by joining these vertically curved lines together and there you go! You can now draw the side pocket.

For the side pocket: don’t be too curious. The pocket is on the right side of the bodysuit’s pants.

Draw a little slant line at the side of the upper and lower part of the right pant, draw a vertical line joining these slant lines together, and add the bent line that serves as the upper part of the side pocket joining to the shape of the pocket.

Draw the Symbol on Kankuro’s Body Suit

Don’t forget that Kankuro has a symbol on his bodysuit.

To draw the symbol, make a circle on the upper part of the bodysuit (center of the cloth), make another smaller circle inside the first so it looks like a ring, and divide the smaller circle into two equal parts with a slight slant line.

The right side of the circle (semi-circle) is yellow, while the other is red.

Draw Kankuro’s Hands, Gloves, and Fingers

We are almost there! The next step is to draw what I call 3-in-1; this means drawing the hands, gloves, and fingers at a time so.

For the hands, draw little lines under the sleeves in the direction of the arms and draw the upper part of the gloves attached to the vertical lines of the hands. Complete the glove by drawing the remaining body of the glove.

At this point, you can now add the fingers under the body of the glove, make sure the fingers of the right hand touch the sleeves of the left arm while resting on the chest, and the fingers of the left arm are pointing towards the right side of the body.

Draw Kankuro’s Legs and Sandals

Practically, this is the last step required to finish your Kankuro drawing.

Let us start with the legs here, make vertical lines under the horizontal line of the bodysuit’s pants.

Ensure the vertical lines align, are meant to the direction of the legs, and are not too long so you can fix Kankuro’s sandals.

For his sandals, draw the upper part of the sandal so that it has an opening that is “V” in shape.

Draw the remaining part of the sandal in alignment with the direction of the basic you already drew for the feet.

Draw a curved line under the sandal, which serves as the sole of the sandal (you can make the line a zigzag if you like), draws the concave curves that separate the big toe from other toes, and use the opportunity to draw the toes of his legs.

Add small circles on the toes; these circles will serve as the toenails.

Add Enhancement in your Kankuro Drawing

Let’s take a closer look at how we can significantly enhance our Kankuro drawing for a better result.

Firstly, we need to add some details like lines and dots to make the drawing realistic, and there is also a need to erase all excess lines and dots so the drawing will not look weird.

Add shadow and highlight to the body, especially to his outfit, and add the best color you can ever think of to the outfit.

Use blue for the symbol on his head protector and purple for the paint on his face.
