Draw Kisame’s Pose

Let’s begin our drawing from the head; draw an oval shape which should not be too big, and add a horizontally curved line on the circle of the head that is curved and touches the sides of the circle; this is for the eyes.

For the nose, draw a horizontal line under the horizontally curved eyes.

For the mouth, draw another horizontal line under the horizontal line of the nose but ensure there are spaces between these horizontal lines.

Draw a vertically curved line at the center of the head, this vertically curved line will be used to align the facial features.

This time, you need to outline the outfit to make it easier to fix other features of the body; draw a slightly slant horizontally line at the lower part of the circle of the head, and draw the widely bent vertical lines at the sides of the horizontally slant line and join these bent vertical lines together with a horizontally curved line.

Draw Kisame’s Pose

Outline Kisame’s Arms, and Legs

The next step hereafter sketching the pose is to outline the arms, legs, and his sword; for Kisame’s arms, his arms are attached to the upper part of the outfit, and they are resting on the chest so that they seem to point upward in a uniformly assigned direction.

For Kisame’s legs, his legs are widely separated so that he looks to be in a stable and convenient posture.

His legs are connected to the lower part of his outfit (cloak), and his legs are also resting on the basic shape of the feet (the right feet are slightly pointing towards the right side of the body while the left feet also seem to point towards the right side of the body).

Kisame Sword Drawing

Normally, his sword is always behind him and you hardly see the blade of the sword.

The handle of the sword is seen at the right side of his shoulder; draw diagonal lines at the right side of the head and join the ends of these diagonal lines together with a little line.

Draw Kisame’s Head Protector

The head protector covers the forehead and part of the sides of the head; draw a horizontally curved line at the top of the circle of the head, and draw another horizontally curved line on the forehead (make this last horizontal line of the forehead smaller than the first one).

Draw a vertically curved line from the ends of these horizontally curved lines in alignment with the circle of the head.

Draw Kisame’s Eyes and Nose

For the facial features, let’s draw the eyes and nose.

For Kisame’s eyes, draw small oval circles on the horizontally curved line you drew for the basis of the eyes so that the vertically curved line of the head is in the middle of the eyes.

Add a small circle inside the shape of the eyes; this is for the pupil of the eyes.

For Kisame’s eyebrows, add a little slant line at the upper part of the shape of the eyes.

For Kisame’s nose, draw a vertical line under the eyes in alignment with the vertically curved line of the head and trace the horizontal line you drew for the basis of the nose to make the nose look more realistic.

Draw Kisame’s Mouth and Face Markings

This is the last step to complete the features of the face; add the mouth and the face marking. This is one of the most recognized features of Kisame’s body because the mouth and his face marks portray his facial expression at the moment.

For the mouth, draw the mouth, so it’s widely spread; naturally, the mouth is under the nose; make sure they are not too close together so it can be more pragmatic.

For Kisame’s face marks they are like the appearance of the gills of a fish, draw curved lines at the upper part of his cheek so that these lines are uniformly placed under the shape of the eyes, and add another curved line at the sides of the mouth so.

Finish the facial features by adding a little bent line at the sides of the shape of the eyes.

Kisame Hair Drawing

Now let’s draw his hair. Kisame’s hair is an extraordinary feature that makes him unique among the anime characters. His hair is packed so that it’s pointing up with a flame appearance; draw a zigzag line with sharp edges pointing up towards the right side of the head.

The hair is held down by the head protector. Add vertical lines on the hair above the head protector’s horizontally curved line.

Kisame Cloak Drawing

As you already know, he is wearing a cloak as an outfit, and the cloak covers almost all of his body.

Here’s an interesting fact: I will divide the step into the upper part that includes the cloak’s collar, the sleeves and the lower part of the cloak.

For the upper part of the cloak, draw a curve from the vertically curved line at the right side of the head protector to the vertically curved line at the left side of the head protector.

This curve passes through the chin of his jaw. Add another little curve under the first one and some curved lines to the curves, which is for the upper part (collar) of the cloak.

For the sleeves, draw curved lines from the collar of the cloak towards the direction of the arms so that it is resting on the chest in alignment with the direction of the arms.

Add more curved lines to the sleeves to make them more realistic. The sleeves extend towards the arms and get to the wrist of the hands.

For the lower part of the cloak, draw vertically curved lines from the sleeves down till it gets to the lower part of the horizontally curved line you drew for the basics of the cloak.

Add a more vertically curved line to the cloak and join them to form the slightly open part of the cloak at the middle of the legs.

Complete this step by adding the strap of the sword, which passes from the right side (shoulder) through the chest to the left side.

Kisame Hands Drawing

Let’s draw his hands. The direction of his hands also contributes to Kisame’s pose. Now trace the basic shape you drew for the hand into the natural shape of the hands so that the left and the right hands are closely held together.

Add the fingers to the hands; only the index fingers should be pointing up, and the other fingers should be held together.

Kisame Legs Drawing

Do I still have your attention? If yes, let’s draw the legs.

The cloak or the outfit covers two-thirds of the legs so that only a little part above the ankle of the legs is showing.

Draw vertically curved lines at the lower part of the cloak towards the direction of the basic you drew for the feet; the curved part of the line will serve as the ankle of the legs so that the vertical line you drew for the basic of the leg is at the middle of these lines of the leg and also serve as the alignment of the legs.

Kisame Footwear Drawing

You are almost there!

Draw Kisame’s foot; the footwear is attached to the lines of the legs. Draw the curved line from the ankle of the leg so that it’s manipulated into the actual shape of the footwear.

I already know the question on your mind; you would want to ask me what type of footwear he has on. Kisame wears a sandal which serves as protection for the feet.

Draw the curved line on the sandal, which serves as the design on top of the sandal. Add a curved line at the lower part of the sandal; this is the sole of the footwear.

Finish up this step by adding vertically curved lines and little circles under the footwear design so it serves as the toes of Kisame’s feet.

Add Details to Kisame’s Outfit and Sword Handle

Here we are!

Add details to the cloak by drawing the distinguished design on his outfit; let the design be at the center of the cloak (under the sword’s strap), and add more lines to the sleeves.

Use thick lines for the border of the outfit and the outline, draw the shape on the head protector and add the lines and dots that complete the head protector.

Finish the sword’s handle by adding curves and circles to the tip of the sword’s handle.

Add lines to the wrist and ensure you erase all unnecessary lines and dots that won’t allow your drawing to be perfect.
