Description: In this next tutorial I thought I would do a character from a popular anime show. Today you will be learning how to draw Kirara from Inuyasha. Now, for those of you that watch this show you know exactly who and what Kirara is. Kirara is a nekomata yokai and has two forms she can take shape into. One is a tiny cute looking feline creature that has a yellowish cream colored coat, black ears, black paws, a pair of large red eyes, and two puffy tails. Kirara is known to be a loyal and faithful companion to Sango who is known to be an exterminator and who also comes from a mountain village called Taijiya where other exterminators live. Kirara usually appears as gentle kitten that wouldn’t or couldn’t harm a fly, but when her true form is realesed she turns into a massive saber-toothed cat that is as big as a full sized vehicle. When Kirara is in her true saber-toothed self, her legs and tails are covered with fire where she will then give her the ability to fly. Her main weapons of defense are her razor sharp claws and pointed fangs. Now even though she is a nekomata demon, Kirara carries none of their tendencies. In fact, she reflects the very opposite of traits that these demons are believed to have. Japanese anime cartoons are always interesting to me because the writers always make up these outrageous plots and story lines. The creatures and beings that they conjure up are also so fascinating and very colorful. The characters Japanese artist develop are also interesting to look at as well. I mean look how the show Pokemon took off in the mid 90’s, that was so insane. You couldn’t look anywhere without seeing characters from the series. Another popular Japanese anime series was Yu Gi Oh. Now that was a big part of American pop culture as well and still is to this day but not as bad as 10 years ago. I can remember watching those shows as well. I can also remember watching Pokemon 2000 the movie. At any rate learning how to draw anime is fortunately very easy to do. So in this tutorial you will learn how to draw Kirara from Inuyasha step by step. Take your time and have fun. Pretty soon you will be drawing on your own without tutorials. Wait, that not true because I still look at tutorials too.
Description: In this first step you will be drawing out the guidelines and shapes for Kirara. Start by drawing out the shape of her head which is just a regular circle. Next draw out the shape of her fluffy chest which looks like the bottom half of a acorn. Now just draw in the shapes of her hind legs as shown and the guidelines that are connected to the shapes.
Description: Next what you are going to do is draw out the shape of her ears which is a real simple thing to do. Then draw out the lining of her big round eyes. Now shape her tail and detail her coat with some thick looking fur. After you do that fluff up her cheeks as shown and then you can move down to the next step.
Description: As you can see what you will be doing here is drawing out the diamond shape on her forehead. Then Draw out the thick underling under her eyes and shade it in as well. Her eyes should be in the shape of an Egyptian princess. Now draw out her little nose along with her tiny looking feet and toes with the claws. Now lastly detail her fur on the chest and detail the hind paws.
Description: Here in this step you will draw out the zigg zag detailing to her two tails as shown. Next draw a straight line going down the middle of her eye. Draw out the zigg zag lines on her front legs and then erase all the guidelines and circle shapes that you drew in step 1.
Description: This is what your Kirara should look like when you are completely done. All you have to do now is color her in and add her to your collection of anime drawings. That will do it for this tutorial on how to draw Kirara from Inuyasha.
