This opportunistic ninja is tall and has a lithe build.
His beady eyes are blue. He has straight, short, soot-black hair. His uncomplicated outfits are usually olive-green.
He uses a classic form of martial arts that emphasizes deceiving one's opponent.
He is skilled in poison-making, acrobatics, and negotiation.
His body has traits reminicent of a panther.
So, I made his outfit very uncomplex, not many buttons and holes and fashionable accessories. He does have a panther claw motif on his pant legs, his boots and on his bandana/dew-rag, that's about as flashy as it gets.
I really disliked the colors that were choosen, but I do think they fit well with the deception part (cameoflague!).
The claws on the end of his knuckles and fingernails are poisonous, and he keeps extras on one of his silver belts. The second silverbelt holds throwing needles; his arm guards also hold these poison-tipped needles as well.
His face is painted to accent his panther-like looks. His is the only black ninja (ningro? jk) so far I think to enter. The tail he carries is a trophy attached to his hip with the silver chain. He has purposely sharpened his teeth to look more intimidating. He keeps a trim diet to be flexible and stlk "prey" through the trees where he is light on his feet and keeps a steady grip with his hand and foot claws.
As far as negotiating, as you can see, he has one...with someone from Konoha village. Tsk-tsk should have listened to a crazy 7 ft tall black panther nin.
I included the bw art because I think my color ruined it. I also included the sketch where he is standing normally so you can see how simple his outfit is.
Yeah, I'm tired. Wish me luck! I worked hard on this- mostly out of respect of Z, a long time sempai.
And I finaly got another brush set put together for all you folks to use if you want.
I actually put this together using some pictures from when i went on the Seward trip (the main one being the Summit Lake picture with the bench) and some other little secrets that i don't feel like sharing... i'm just that much of a lazy ass (ok, they aren't secret really, i'd just like it to seem that way )
Anyways, there are 15 brushes in this pack and, as always, the preveiw does not show all of the brushes be sure to give them a try, tell me what you think, and send me a link if use them on something, i'll love ya for it
Kakashi and Kurenai from Naruto. Hand-drawn, manipulated in Photoshop 5.
Am I total hypocryte or what? Here I am applying for a contest in an Asuma/Kurenai community, and then I turn around and post something like this in my gallery. Bah. Next to Asuma/Kurenai, Kakashi/Kurenai has become an endeared crack pairing of mine. I don't consider KakaKure cannon, but it's cute somehow.
I actually drew this a little less than a year ago for a friend of mine. It's always been my favorite drawing that I've done of this pair, hence why I'm keeping it in my gallery and not putting it in scraps like some of my others. I'm not quite sure what it is about this one that I like so much. Maybe the composition, or the warm implications against the cold backdrop. Whatever it is, I've always liked how this one turned out.
The thing is, while I wish I could say I'll be making a whole batch of AsuKure stuff to balance this out... I actually have a kakakure doujinshi in the making.....
Curses. This is the first time I've been torn between pairings--or at least indulged the non-cannon one more. Go fig.
Hatake Kakashi from Naruto. Hand-drawn, gradients added on Photoshop 5.
I messed up on the anbu uniform--vest and arm-guards in particular, and his mask isn't as detailed it should be. Nonetheless, I'm quite happy with this piece. I just sketched it out at random, didn't really think about what I was trying to do, and just let the drawing be itself. Mmmm, angsty, anbu Kakashi.....
Er, uh... *wipes drool away* Anyway, just putting up another one.
