How to draw Tenten step by step │ Naruto

Draw the Basics

Let’s get down to business, we’ll start by drawing Tenten’s pose, for Tenten’s head, draw an oval shape and ensure that it is not too small.

Add the necessary line on the head; a horizontal line for the basic of the eye, draw another horizontal line for the nose, and the last horizontal line serves as the mouth’s basis.

Draw a vertical line at the center of Tenten’s head that crosses the horizontal lines you drew for the eyes, nose, and mouth.

For Tenten’s neck, extend the vertical line from the head downwards to outline her neck.

For the Tenten’s chest, draw a rectangular shape under the vertical line of the neck so that the rectangular shape slightly bends towards the left side of the body.

For the Tenten’s waist, draw a circle under the rectangular shape of the chest so that the circle of the waist slightly rests on the lower part of the rectangular shape you drew for the trunk.

For Tenten’s arms, draw the right arm in a way that it is pointing out towards the right direction of the body and add the basic shape of the right hand at the end of the slant line of the right arm.

For the left arm, draw a vertical line from the side of the rectangular shape you drew for the chest, which should be pointing down towards the direction of the circle of the waist.

For Tenten’s legs, draw vertical lines from the circle of the waist; the vertical line for the right leg should be slightly slanted while the one for the left leg should be vertically straight, and add the basic shape of the feet connected (under) to the vertical lines of the legs.

With these approaches, you can start fixing the body’s features.

Draw Tenten’s Jaw

The next step is to draw Tenten’s jaw; her jaw is attached to the circle of the head, so you don’t have to spend more time on this step, trace down the lower part of the circle of the head (the sides of the circle) into the natural shape of Tenten’s jaw so that the lower part of the jaw (chin) is lightly blunt.

Tenten Neck Drawing

Since we already have the jaw fixed, let’s draw the neck. For Tenten’s neck, draw two little vertical lines from the side of the jaw to the upper part of the rectangular shape of the chest; make the vertical line on the right side shorter than that of the left side.

Tenten Hair Drawing

For her hair, begin with her two buns, draw the two basic shapes of the hair above the circle of the head so that these shapes are at the right and left side of the circle of the head, and let there be enough space between the shape and the circle of the head.

The next step for this drawing to draw her hair is to draw a curve around the circle of the head; this curve should be concave so it can cover the upper part of the head and also attached to the basic shape of the buns of the hair.

Now, make a zigzag line joining the ends of the concave curve to the sides of the head so that these zigzag lines form enough edges pointing downward in alignment with the sides of the circle forming the bangs on two sides of her head, and complete the hair.

Draw Tenten’s Forehead Protector

Tenten has a forehead protector that she uses to guide her head and the forehead. This forehead protector has a significant symbol, making it more enhanced.

For this protector, draw a horizontally curved line above the horizontal line of the eyes, and draw another horizontally curved line above the first one you just drew, minding the shape edges of the hair.

Draw a rectangle inside the doubled horizontal line you drew.

Add the spiral pattern symbol on the forehead protector so that it is also aligned with the direction of the head.

Draw Tenten’s Eyes, Eyelashes, and Eyebrows

Now it is time to draw her facial features.

For her eyes, draw a concave curve at the upper part of the horizontal line you drew for the basis of the eyes.

Add a horizontally curved line under the line and make a vertically curved line inside the eyes so that it forms the natural shape of her eyes.

For the pupil of the eyes, make a circle inside the body of the eyes with dots at the sides of the circle.

For Tenten’s eyelashes, make slant lines on the concave curve at the upper part of the eyes. For Tenten’s eyebrows, draw slant lines coming together to form an edge pointing towards the vertical line at the center of the head.

Draw Tenten’s Ear, Nose, and Mouth

Let’s finish up with the facial features, and for this step, I will show you how to draw the ear, nose, and mouth.

Let’s start with the ear; due to the direction her head is facing, we cannot really see her right ear, so draw a curve at the left side of the head and add curved lines inside the curve so it makes it look more realistic; this is her left ear.

For the tenten’s nose, draw a curve at the side of the vertical line of the head towards the horizontal line you drew for the basis of the nose and add a dot beside it (on the horizontal line), so it looks real.

For the tenten’s mouth, trace the horizontal line of the basic of the mouth with a broken horizontally curved line and finish the mouth by adding another horizontal line under the broken line, making the mouth more pragmatic.

Draw the Collar of Tenten’s Outfit

Fix the collar of her outfit so that you will not have difficulties while drawing the outfit. The collar surrounds the neck and rests on the upper part of the shoulder.

Draw a vertically curved line from the lower part of the right jaw to the right shoulder and another vertically curved line from the left side of the neck to the left shoulder.

Draw curved horizontal lines from the curved part of the lines you drew and extend the line down (vertically) so that come together to form a “V” shape at the top of the chest.

Tenten Arms Drawing

This is one of the easiest steps of the drawing, so now it’s time to fix her arms.

Draw Tenten’s Chinese Style Top

In continuation, draw the Chinese-style top she is wearing. Tenten is a fashionable and attractive lady, so I will walk you through the easiest way to draw this attractive Chinese top.

Start with the sleeves of the top; the sleeves are attached to the collar of the outfit; draw the right sleeve pointing to the right direction of the body in alignment with the direction of the right arm while the left sleeve is also pointing towards the direction of the left arm.

Tenten’s sleeves is not covering the whole arms.

Draw the body of the top with a curved line so that the left side of the chest is very curved; join the body of the top with a horizontally curved line resting on the circle of the waist.

You can now add another horizontal line at the top of the top’s lower part, making the top more realistic.

Draw Tenten’s Hands and Gloves

Are we still together? This time, we need to draw the hands and glove to finish the drawing on time.

For her hands, manipulate the basic shape you drew for the hands into the actual shape of the hands so that it is connected to the arms.

Add the fingers of the hands to the shape of the hands; the fingers of the right hand are widely spread. The fingers are not seen for the left hand because the waist seems to cover the finger, but the fingers are pointing downward.

For tenten’s gloves, she’s wearing a glove that covers her hands and part of her fingers. The glove has holes that allow the fingers to protrude out of the glove.

Draw Tenten’s Baggy Pants

We are almost here! Draw her baggy pant. The pant is connected to the circle of the waist, but it doesn’t cover the whole leg; the pant only gets to the lower part of the knee joint.

Draw a vertically curved line from the sides of the waist circle, and draw another vertically curved line from the center (under) of the circle. Ensure these lines are aligned in the direction of the legs. Join these vertically curved lines with a little horizontal line at the shin of the leg.

Add the curved line for the pant pocket at the right side of the waist.

Now let’s use thick lines for the border of the outfit and add lines to the pants pocket to make it more realistic.

Add a wavy line under the horizontally curved line of the pant; this is the helm of the pant. Add lines to the upper part of the left neck so it looks like the continuation of the hair and draws the extended role of the forehead protector under her left hair bun.

Still, on the detail, erase all excess lines and dots that might not be needed anymore so your drawing can be presentable.
