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.
Ah, yes. I'm not dead yet! In fact, I may just go take a walk.
Monty Python references aside, it took a contest run by a friend of mine to get me to get the ol' wacom out n' draw. However, I decided to really go the distance here, which means that A. I focused a half a month over details and getting references, then realize that the background is wonky, and B. stuff's too stiff. It is an eternal battle, digital painting.
Alright. Here's the gist of the contest here: [link] Basically? You grab a random desc from the make-a-ninja generator, and draw that nin. As simple as that. My description is here:
This contemplative female ninja is tall and has an elegant build. She is missing her right arm. Her large eyes are pine-green. She has straight olive-green hair. Her severe outfits are usually gray and include a belt with many pouches. She uses an artistic form of martial arts that emphasizes duplicating the moves of one's opponent and using kicks. Her preferred weapon is a garotte. She is skilled in mimicry, astronomy, and climbing. She uses her weapon to produce shockwaves.
I'm not sure if I'll get any points for exact accuracy, but it's an actual background and a more realistic rendering style. However, I wasn't sure if it fit more in the fantasy category or the anime category, as there were some stylistic nuances that seem to lend themselves to anime, but I guess it's up for debate.
My lovely one-armed nin shall squat in the anime section for now. She may ninja away to the fantasy gallery later, however, if someone recommends it.
Well, this is my submission for the Super Ninja Art Contest being held by
You basically use this random ninja generator that will give you a description of a ninja and you find one you like and draw it. This is the description I chose:
This clueless ninja has a slender build. He has large feet. His large eyes are blue. He has straight white hair worn in a weird style. He uses an odd form of martial arts that emphasizes turning an opponents' strength against them. His preferred weapon is a cutlass. He is skilled in sports and interrogation. He can communicate with wolves.
So yeah, his insane hair is the result of the "Straight white hair worn in a weird style" I just liked the fact that he has overly exadurated straight hair. And I had to use a reference for that wolf...because me drawing animals is like...noooot even funny. But the main focus is the dude anyhow, so yeah.

This is an entry for a 'Random Ninja' art competition. You had to go and get a 'random ninja' from this one random generator site, and then do your interpretation of it. Here's mine...
This plucky ninja is very short and has a broad-shouldered build. He has a wide chin. His hooded eyes are lavender. He has charcoal-colored hair worn in a style that resembles a horse's mane. His outfit is in shades of blue. He uses an odd form of martial arts that emphasizes dodging one's opponent and using submission holds. His preferred weapon is a katana (which seems to be almost alive). He is skilled in comedy. He can teleport.
While I didn't show him actually teleporting (which would've been hard anyway), I figure that's how he managed to get behind his opponent, put him in that obviously uncomfortable elbow hold, and sit on him. The purpose? Why to tell him a joke, natch... those samurai never /do/ appreciate a good laugh, the grumpy bastards.
"...So /anyway/... a kitsune and an ogre walk into a bar..."
My submission to: for the 'Design your own Ninja' contest.
Name: Toni Taka
Likes: Chakra boarding, girls, video games, and cherry soda.
Dislikes: Having a baby face, mean people, shopkeepers that won’t let him board around their stores.
Attacks: In order to use his chakra board, he can control his chakra at an immense rate through his feet which is the most difficult part of the body to mold it from. He can also fling his board at the enemy as another form of attack. His special ability inherited from the Taka (Hawk) clan, is ‘kessho kobushi’ (crystal fist) turning chakra into crystal to take the form of a weapon such as a spear, chakra bomb, shurikens and kunai, so he is never without a weapon. The weapons that he crystallizes are still under his control even after they have left his contact.
Weaponry: A chakra board, which is boomerang shaped. He uses not only to ride on, but it can also be flung at an enemy and will return to him without fail. His ‘crystal fist’ which he uses to crystallize various weapons formed from chakra. Along with several kunai and shuriken that he uses during battle, and while showing off on his chakra board.
History: Just recently moving up to the Jounin rank at a young age, Toni is an impressive member of the Taka clan. Graduating from the Ninja Academy at the age of 13, he was constantly picked on because of his small stature and his ‘baby face,’ he quickly moved up in rank so as to keep up with the older chakra boarders around Konoha, and to prove that although he was small in size, he could beat anyone at boarding with unmatched ninja skills. His small frame does have its advantages for a chakra boarder, when combined with his years of experience; it allows him to obtain the highest speeds ever achieved on a board, and the most daring of tricks on it as well.
The other Jounins are still…adjusting…to the new addition to their rank, although he joins them on missions, he spends most of his spare time with his boarder friends and former team mates looking for sweet boarding spots. But he prizes his friends and comrades above everything else and is a reliable new Jounin.
Any other information: Toni is laid back and calm but tends to get cocky impressing the kunoichi on his board between missions. He can’t stand it when the Hokage calls him “cute” and pinches his cheeks when he reports back from missions. He is especially good at fast missions because no one can keep up with him on his board.
Artists side note: Yeah, I have yet to come across it, but my apologies if someone has already done the “chakra board” type thing, it doesn’t seem like that far fetched of an idea, so if someone has, sorry, I’ve never seen it.
Oh yeah, and thank you, Tony Hawk…for the usage of your cool name and the revival of skateboarding.
…because we all know that Tony Hawk has a DA account and is devstalking me…
No, not INTARWEB, net as in -net-.
Another submission to Z's 'create a nin' contest... albeit not as cute as the other one.
Here's the description from the random generator:
This studious ninja is very tall and has a graceful build. His almond-shaped eyes are violet. He has ivory hair worn in a style that resembles an overused mop. His preferred weapon is a net. He is skilled in survival, stuntsmanship, and gossip. He can pass through and merge with water.
Yes, studious. Note the glasses and the scroll-cases. And the mop hair. (Mop? Dredlocks? Thingy.)
Anyway. One last go.
The only reason I am submitting this piece is because it took me ten hours to finish. Why would such a simple thing take me so much time, you ask? Because, apparently, I have completely forgotten how to use Illustrator and I had to figure everything out all over again. There used to be bubbles in the background, but I couldn't get the damn reflections right, so now the fish is flying. DEAL WITH IT.
Okay. The only time I do more involved images like this is usually when I'm in a really good mood or it's for someone I really love.
In this case it was a bit of both. ^_^ Happy Birthday !
Originally it was going to be Kuja being all evil and debonaire and elegant and crap with this little canary on his hand but .... I was having trouble with his face. Everytime I did it he looked constipated or .... hungry. *swt* So I improvised.
Oh and btw ... I apologize if Alexandria looks a little .. phallic. ._.;;;;
