Naruto Uzumaki is a young Ninja who wishes to rise to glory and eventually become the leader of his village, despite the challenges presented by situations beyond his control.

His story first appeared in the Japanese manga Karakuri in 1995. The story continued in an additional manga volume and the serial Weekly Shonen Jump. In 2002, Naruto became a television anime series. A second series, eleven films, and a number of spin-offs have been created from the original story line.

The Naruto series has a universal appeal due in part to the fact that it is a coming-of-age story. The characters not only grow physically from pre-teens to young adults, but evolve and mature in the process. According to the University of Missouri's Christopher A. Born, "the Naruto storyline contains Confucian values which can be identified and embraced by preteen and adolescent boys...[including] hard work, friendship, and winning at all costs."

Would you like to be able to draw Naruto? Doing so is easy with this simple step-by-step drawing tutorial. All you will need is a pencil, a piece of paper, and an eraser. You may also wish to use paints, markers, crayons, or colored pencils to shade your finished drawing.

Note that each step of this drawing guide contains both explanatory text and an accompanying illustration. In the picture, new lines added in the current step are highlighted in blue. In some steps, you will need to erase lines drawn previously.
