Description: Jiraiya was born in a village called β€œKonoha” and as a child he was a student of the Third Hokage. His team mates were Orochimaru, and Tsunade, and with the two the trio became or were a part of Team 7. For todays first lesson I will be showing you "how to draw Jiraiya”, and I think you will like what I have done. The only thing I like about Jiraiya is his cool looking appearance. His white hair and his customized head protector, really makes his style pop. Another cool part of his face is the cyan lines that run down his cheeks. Yes I know that he is a peculiar character from the Naruto series, but that doesn't change how he still stood by his village even after he left his people to help the troubles they were having when Orochimaru invaded Konoha. He helped them fight off the intruders, as well as offer protection. After the Third Hokage died, the village needed another. That is when he went on a journey to look for Tsunade so that she can take over and become the Thirds successor. Once he found her, he had to make it clear that if she betrayed the village, he would personally kill her without a doubt. The only reason why he threatened her like that was because he heard that she was mixed up with Orochimaru and his evil schemes. Once Tsunade made it clear that she was still loyal to her village, she accepted the her place as Hokage, and from there Jiraiya became her servant, trusted adviser, and a loyal friend that she can confide in. He also aided her as a personal spy to keep his eyes on the activity of the Akatsuki. As for his abilities, Jiraiya is a Legendary Sannin and the reason why this is so special is because there are only three and he is one of them. He is an incredibly skilled ninja, and he is also proficient with Toad techniques. It's inevitable that you guys will like this tutorial, as well as the way I show you "how to draw Jiraiya, step by step". I will be back momentary with some more drawing fun. Who knows what I will upload next. The only way to find out is to stay tuned in to Peace out people and happy drawing!
