Artist: Dawn / December 5, 2009

Step 1.

Drawing Akamaru is going to be pretty simple. To start just draw a circle fro the head and then add the facial guidelines. You will draw another circle for the body of Akamaru and then draw two lumps on the sides of it's body for the thighs.

Step 2.

Start sketching out the lines for his eyes, and then draw the shape of Akamaru's nose, and mouth as you see here. Once that is done you can then move onto the next drawing step. See how easy it is drawing Akamaru so far?

Step 3.

Akamaru has a funny fur style. It looks like his hair or coat is spiked on the top of his head. You will then draw the shape of his ears and then draw the beginning lines for his shoulders. Once that is done draw the shape of Akamaru's scruffy lookin   

Step 4.

Finish drawing out Akamaru's legs starting with the hind quarters. Once that is done draw the back paws and or feet, and then draw the lining for his front legs and paws.

Step 5.

For your last drawing step all you have to do is finish drawing the shape of the front legs and then add a bit of fuzz to the chest as you see here. Erase all the guidelines and steps that you drew in step one to clean up your drawing.

Step 6.

When you are done with this lesson on "how to draw Akamaru", your character from Naruto should look like the one you see here. Color him in and you are all done.

Description: Well I guess I couldn't do so many tutorials on all these different Naruto characters without submitting a lesson on “how to draw Akamaru”. I mean, isn't Akamaru a popular character of the series anyway? For those of you that follow the show, you already know who this pooch is. But for those of you that watch or read Naruto but haven't gotten far enough to know who all the characters are, I will explain a little something about this dog. Akamaru is the pet, best friend and companion to Kiba Inuzuka. He is a dog that was given to Kiba by his mother Tsume Inuzuka. She had much faith that the two would be close even though Akamaru peed on Kiba's face the first day they were joined together. Despite such a fowl and disgusting thing, Kiba fell in love with his pet nin-dog nevertheless. Akamaru is a white colored “Ninken”. Ninken is a breed of any species of dog that have a good amount of chakra supply which makes them perfect companions for ninja. There are also Ninken dogs that can hold conversations and straight up talk with no problem at all like Pakkun and Kuromaru. Kakashi has a group of ninja hounds that have the ability to walk on water which is very impressive. In part 1 of the Naruto series Akamaru is along side of Kiba when Kiba and Naruto fought. In part II of the Naruto series Kiba rides on top of his trusted friend and companion. Unfortunately, I think Akamaru dies in part II when Sasuke killed him. I thought it would only be right to submit this tutorial on “how to draw Akamaru from Naruto step by step”. I do hope you guys will enjoy this lesson, I will be back later with much more drawing fun and I think you will like what I will be uploading in a few. Peace peeps and happy drawing!
