Now I can't say I'm an obsessive fan, I missed out huge plot chunks (I didn't watch any of the fillers either apart from one or two) and I didn't set off fireworks when Shippuden finally rolled around but I do check back when I remember as I do want to know the ending and despite all the rage people throw at Naruto I like it. There, I've said it, and I won't take it back. That said, I haven't checked back in a while so today I went to check out the latest chapter and found I'd missed two. For the sake of spoilers all I will say is that my eternal love for Gaara has just been amplified ten fold.
I love Naruto and Gaara. I don't mean as a pairing, if you wish to take this as a yaoi piece then you're free to interpret it as that. For me, they are like brothers, so similar and so strong and just so good together. And I love the fact that Gaara is the one-tail and Naruto the nine, there's a spectrum, a completeness there that just really appeals to me. Along with all they've been through together, from the chunin exams to Gaara losing Shikaku and nearly dieing to now where they're both so far apart but both doing their part. They're both so strong and it really is inspiring.
And I'll just take this moment to say that if you don't like Naruto, my art is not a place for your vendetta, so feel free to comment on the art for better or worse but generic hate will not be tolerated and on your own head be it.
But yeah, I read the chapter and my love for Gaara was renewed so I took a break from Mortal Instruments and Infernal Devices fanart to do this. I'd just finished Gaara when a pose flashed into my head for more MI fanart which has since been sketched. Inspiration is such a fickle thing.
Took a while to get Naruto as I wanted him so he actually looked like the Naruto we all know and love.
Hopefully I've done them justice.
Naruto and Gaara belong to Masashi Kishimoto I just drew them.
Yaya Han (the Cosplay Goddess) was looking for a Drop Dead Sexy graphic to use on her marketing materials and merchandise, and I was thrilled to have the opportunity to work with such a beautiful subject
She wanted to be portrayed in her very own "Barberalla" style outfit, which I think worked out beautifully!
18"x24" posters of this graphic are also available in my shop located here: [link]
If you aren't familiar with Yaya make sure to check out her Deviant Art page ~yayacosplay:

Name: Fubuki Madara Race: Human Age: 26 or 31, depending on what she decides to tell you today. Gender: Female Weight: That's a secret~ Height: About 5'9" Three sizes: B91 W68 H87 (taken from her previous job's records, apparently...) Class: [UNARMED ASSAULT] Weapon: N/A, her own two fists! Fighting Style: She's trained in a bit of street fighting on her own, but she mostly learned to fight under the discipline of Bajiquan, a Wushu style martial art that features explosive, short ranged power and is famous for its elbow strikes. She only takes the Bajiquan stances when getting serious against an opponent (aka actually wanting to seriously mess them up). Otherwise, she just uses a mix-up of whatever gets the job done.
It's said that her glove holds back some sort of power in her right hand but that's probably a story she only made up just to sound cool.
Story: She was born and raised in the entertainment district. She doesn't remember what exactly happened to her parents to put her in that situation, but only her Aunt has taken care of her for as long as she can remember. As luck would have it, her Aunt is also the owner or the renowned Wang Shim Hostess Club, one of the most famous hostess clubs in the entertainment district. Being raised there wasn't an easy life, as she had to stay in her house for long periods of time when she was a child, and was only allowed to leave if she was escorted through the club by one of the hostesses or a guard. There were a few times when some rowdy customers would bother her, but it never amounted to anything more than that. Her curiosity often got the best of her, wanting to know exactly what it is that the big girls were doing with all those men in the lounges, but the hostesses were like big sisters to her, and kept her out of trouble (constantly). In addition, as a form of self defense and discipline, her Auntie began teaching her the art of Bajiquan when she was 8. Since her Aunt was the owner of such a prestigious hostess club that made so much money, it was no problem for her to send Fubuki to a proper school in the residential district with proper children her age. Luckily, Aunt taught Fubuki all the little tricks that she could use to make sure that no one would find out that she came from that kind of background. It seemed that people from other districts looked down on those who were born in the entertainment district. Fubuki was able to lead a normal school life with no questions asked. When she turned 18, she decided that she wanted to start helping her Auntie who'd taken care of her so much, and asked one the hostesses to train her "how to be the best hostess around." She managed to undergo training without her Aunt knowing, and suddenly applied for a job at the hostess club a year later. Because of her looks and natural charms, she easily rose to the top within a year. She became known as the youngest, yet somehow most "experienced" of all in the club (or rather "she's really good at faking it"), almost like a carbon copy of her Aunt in her younger years. Contrary to popular belief, this actually didn't bother the hostesses as much as one would think. They were all more happy for her, than anything. It was almost like watching a little sister or daughter grow up to be successful thanks to the hard work and guidance they all gave her. It was only natural that with every hostess training her, and with Auntie's natural talent in her blood, that she would rise to the top with no problem.
Oddly enough, the reason she started working for NAPSO was due to pure impulse on Frelia's part. Frelia saw this pretty girl walking down the street and was instantly mesmerized; she couldn't help but approach her. Fubuki's natural charismatic aura about her and the way she's able to smooth-talk her way into anyone's heart made even someone like Frelia feel some sort of affection towards her, and she was hired immediately without any questions.
Now, as the Operator of the Business District, Fubuki hopes she can show the stiffs in that district just how capable someone from the Entertainment District really is.
Personality: Clever, eccentric and charismatic. She goes all out on everything she does. Not once has she "backed away" during a fight, and often ends up teasing the opposing party constantly during said fights. She's kind of a free spirit.
Extra stuff: People think she's a prostitute but that's not how the hostess club worked. It's more like "geisha" entertainment for men in that they kept them company in the club, and they would have to pay a large amount of money (and the price in Fubuki's case is extremely high, often unaffordable) to get "anything more" wink wink nudge nudge. She's not ashamed of it. In fact, she feels like she has quite a bit of understanding and control over how men think and how they react to many different things. Given the chance, she says that she could probably lead an army of men (as she flips her hair) But just baiting men with sex appeal only goes so far, and she's definitely aware of that. Therefore, she keeps such things to her hostess club and only brings out that side of her if she wants to tease her opponent or make a few dirty jokes or so. As previously mentioned, she's uncommonly charismatic. People of all types are drawn towards her for no concrete reason, and she tends to accept...most people...that try to be "friends" with her. Yes, I know shirts don't work that way. Deal with it. She always wears her traditional training shoes even when wearing a full suit. She's been in the discipline for so long she says that her feet feel naked if she's not wearing them.
One of the Great 7 Councile of the Virtue's. Along with Diligence ordered the Banishment of Lucifer.
'You know the Laws Micheal, The Lord has issued the wish of us to Love all Humans more them him, this is His Law, Lucifer must be punished for his sins, of corupting Eve and forcing The Lords hand to banish them from Eden. You are the one to banish the Blasphemer, or do you wish to face our Judgement Gods Wrath?'
I wont give The Virutes Wings and Halos because, just like the Sins i belive them higher then Angels.
It's te time for a Strike witches drawings! This is an original character that I've made based on the character that my girlfriend have used on a RPG session based on the strike witches world with some realism and credibility. She was an English lieutenant and her striker unit is a Spitfire MKIXc my favorite plane for the air combat on the WWII (but also I like the Zero!). The armament thet she use on combat is a combo of a cannon and a machine gun, as the spitfire that have been the same armaments.
This is the pencil drawing, soon as possible the colored version.
P.S. The uniform is the real version of the RAF female version of the uniform.
