Description: I have been doing a lot of Naruto characters lately, and I think its because they have been requested an awful lot. Of course I never mind drawing lessons on how to draw Naruto characters because Naruto is one of my favorite shows. Since I have been sketching a bunch of character from the anime series, I have been getting into more of the story line and it has been getting really good. I wanted to do a tutorial on a group of characters that make up one cult. I will be giving you a lesson on β€œhow to draw Akatsuki step by step”. As many of you Naruto fans know, the Akatsuki is an organization that is criminal to the core. They are a group of S-Class missing-nins, and they are also one of Naruto's most wanted group in the shinobi world. The whole goal of the Akatsuki, is to obtain world domination and the only way to do that is to collect all of the tailed beast. The organization didn't really start taking off until part two of the Naruto series. They were only seen as a minor group in part one, but during part two they where THE main bad guys of the series. They have to collect a total of nine tails from nine different beasts. All the members in the organization work in teams of two, all except Zetsu. Zetsu is the organizations spy which means he travels alone most of the time. As of chapter 317, the Akatsuki line up is as follows; Zetsu, Deidara, Kakuzu, Madara Uchiha, Hidan, Itachi Uchiha, Kisame Hoshigaki, Konan, Pain, and Sasori. Like I just said previously, the team works in two's. The list of teams are; Kakuzu and Hidan, Pain and Konan, Sasori and Deidara, Itachi and Kisame, and of course Zetsu works on his own because he is the spy. A previous member of the Akatsuki was Orochimaru. Now all of this may seem well and good, but the most important thing about the Akatsuki is the Akatsuki Rings. There is ten rings in total, and all ten of the rings are given to each member of the Akatsuki. Now, each ring represents the position or rank of each member, and not one member is assigned a ring on the same finger as the other. The right thumb is worn by Pain, the right index finger is worn by Deidara, the right middle finger is worn by Konan, right ring finger is worn by Itachi, right little finger is worn by Orochimaru but he took off with the ring and no one knows of his where a bouts. Next the left ring finger is worn by Kisame, left middle finger is worn by Kakuzu, left index finger worn by Hidan, and left thumb is worn by Sasori at first and then later by Tobi. There is so much more to this Naruto organization and I wish that I could keep rambling on about it. Unfortunately though I can not because I still have much work to do. For now you will learn how to draw Akatsuki step by step”. I know you guys will have fun with this tutorial, so draw your little hearts out. Peace peeps!
