I have been hacking with CSS for a long period but I never made any CSS drawing or CSS art. I think it’s time for another CSS hacker to join the club!
I took one of my favorite anime character and I tried to do something in one day to see my level before spending more time.
I came up with this
It will not work on Safari, scroll down to the embed tweet to see a screenshot
Not that perfect but quite good for a
6h work. I would have done better if I considered an easier illustration but I took a complex one as a reference 😳 👇
- It’s responsive.
- I used a lot of
clip-path. A good technique for responsive but a pain to handle.
- I tried to keep a reduced HTML code
- I used an SVG filter to smooth up a few edges (related post: https://dev.to/afif/css-shapes-with-rounded-corners-56h). I am not proud of this one but I wanted a fast solution to end my drawing before midnight. Next time it will be a CSS-only solution.
I tweeted about it yesterday in case you want to retweet it or draw the attention of a CSS artist 🧐

‘Uchiha Itachi’ Made with #CSS
This one took me quite a long time, was a bit complicated than expected.
*I’ll be sharing the Codepen link in a while in the replies.*
RETWEETS ARE APPRECIATED! https://t.co/TIziBB1t4L
Let me know what do you think 👇👇
✔️ This is amazing, we want more like this!
❌ Don’t do this anymore 🤮 we want more tutorials and funny collections but no more drawing please!
PS: If you will choose the ❌, I will haunt your dreams for the rest of your life 👹
