Naruto is an action-adventure and comedy fantasy series drawn in Japanese anime style.
Kakashi Hatake first appeared in the series in 1999.
Kakashi is a teacher to Team 7, of which the show's titular character is a member. He is a skilled ninja, easygoing, and an emphatic rule follower. He had a difficult childhood, as his father died in disgrace. He had become an accomplished ninja by age five. He lost his eye in battle, and it was replaced by a Sharingan.

Did you know? Kakashi means "scarecrow" in Japanese. This phrasing has often played a role in the artwork, as when scarecrows appear in the background or when Naruto uses a scarecrow dressed like Kakashi for training.
Kakashi wears a mask. His drawing can be a reminder to anime fans to wear theirs, too!

Step-by-Step Instructions for Drawing Kakashi Hatake from Naruto
1. Begin by using a long curved line to outline the shape of the face. Notice the contours of the jaw, chin, cheek, and brow. Then, use curved lines to outline the shape of the eyes and eyelids. Draw two successively smaller circles within each eye, and shade the smaller to indicate the pupil.
2. Use pairs of curved lines to draw the eyebrows, pointed on each end. Draw a curved line across the face, upturned where it crosses the nose. Use a long and short curved line to outline the nose itself. Then, draw a pair of curved lines above and below one eye to indicate Kakashi's scar.
3. Use curved lines to outline the sideburns, the ear, the details of the inner ear, the back of the neck, and the hair at the back of the neck.
4. Draw Kakashi's Leaf Village headband. Use curved lines to outline the rectangular shape, as well as the rounded rectangular shape of the metal plate. Draw small circles on the edges to indicate the rivets that hold it together. In the middle of the plate, sketch the spiral and triangle symbol of the Leaf.
5. Use a series of short curved lines that meet at jagged points to draw Kakashi's hair. Notice how some of the hair falls forward across the headband.
6. Draw the collar of Kakashi's garment. Use curved lines to sketch the curved rectangular shapes. Then, draw a curved line along the top and front of each side to give it a three-dimensional appearance.
7. Draw Kakashi's shoulder pads. Use curved lines to sketch the rounded and curved rectangular shapes. Then, draw a small circle near the bottom of each.
8. Use curved lines to sketch the arms, noting the line that doubles back upon itself to indicate a fold or wrinkle in the material. Draw pairs of curved lines downward from the shoulder pads to sketch the front of the tunic.
9. Draw curved lines to indicate the neck of the garment, with additional curved lines below to form the hem. Draw a curved line downward and double it back upon itself to form the closure of the garment. Detail the neck with curved lines.
Color your cartoon of Kakashi Hatake. He wears green and black clothing, and his hair is silver. One eye is grey and the other is red.
