Fooray busted out these sickass lines and I had to give them an attempt. Still trying to make a comeback here. Not exactly how I pictured it to look, but at least I'm trying to get back on the right track. I hope ya enjoy it, and I hope I didn't butcher Foo's lines.
been a long time since I've been drawing some naruto fanart, so here is one cute Sakura . Don't know why I draw her kinda dancin'... °___°;;;
this one's meeant to be colored, hope I'll get the time soon ...
edit: put a bigger size this morning with a watermark. the size is now waaaay bigger than the original, hope it won't affect your judgement
This seems to be the basic shape of Nightow's male characters: slim waist, long legs, long arms. The first one is "mortal" proportions, eight heads tall. The second one is "hero" height, nine heads, but if you take a look and compare the two, the extra head height is not distributed equally along the entire figure. The arms are the same length as the mortal proportions, but the legs are much much longer.
I am pretty sure sometimes Nightow draws his characters almost 10 heads tall... Every once in a while in the manga, Nightow will illustrate a kind of idealized version of Vash, like, the mythical version. One of those pictures has IMPOSSIBLY LONG LEGS. (Still looks cool, though...)
There's no doubt about it, folks. The extra height is in the legs. Even the character design for Vash on the anime is crazy disproportionate. If you look at the model sheet for the anime, you can see that out of 9 heads, 5 of them are LEG. If you compare this to the mortal proportions, it's only 4 heads tall. If you look at NORMAL hero proportions, the legs are still only 4.5 heads tall.
Vash character design probably belongs to either Yasuhiro Nightow or Madhouse Studio.
This will be the beginning of my new coloring era. Hopefully I will improve with each color. I was surfing around and found this Naruto lineart. It just caught my eye. I hope it's an improvement over my other works, and I hope you enjoy it as well.
This is one of my fav parts in the manga/anime. Basically the goodbye that Sasuke gives to Sakura. I happen to be a Sakura/Sasuke fan and am hoping that someday he does open up his heart a little to her. In the begining she does seem obsessed with him, but she really does care a lot, and for a moment he respected her for that and thanks her for being there when no one else was. I look forward to seeing how things develop between them.
I wanted to give it a more soft and dreamlike feel, then the night setting that the original has.
