Personal piece, 2014. Pencil, Photoshop PS5. Download for full-size.

And so, here it is: the piece I've been designing in my head since sometime early last year. I was aiming for epic, and wound up with one of the things I'm most proud of having made.

There were several things I was trying to develop in my coloring with this piece, chief of which being tonal ranges and trying to bring more variation of color into everything. Though I wasn't able to make the huge strides I set out to do, I learned a lot and I think I made a step forward, even if only a small one.

Anyway, thanks for looking. You can see detailed close-ups here:

It's an excellent update t o the beginning of Shippuden too. (The current Ninja Wars group shot wouldn't be as colorful, since all of them except Naruto would be wearing their village uniforms.)

I love that it's Naruto and yet still has that independent artist feel to it. Nice job!

Wow ~! Really loving this piece, you did the character placements and coloring so well xD (Ex: how Shino is barely visible as he feels in the anime lol) Really great work here~!

Thanks so much. I felt a little bad hiding Shino like that, but you're right - it seemed appropriate. :D

Your take on Akamaru is really great.  He actually looks like a real dog!

You have a really unique style. I really enjoy it. I know there are photoshop effects on this, but still, so impressive for coloring pencil. So much detail and expression on everyone's faces.
