Unfortunately, the only credit I can claim for this is as the commissioner; all the credit should go to the artist, Laverith. (And if you really want to say how much you like it, don't tell me, tell her [here])

Anyway, the piece is a scene from chapter 5 of a decidedly excellent Naruto fic that I'm the beta reader for, Team 8, by S'TarKan. Link to the story [here].

And I wish that I didn't have to say it, but please no "borrowing" this piece for your own purposes without my permission.

I never liked fanfics but this one is special.

I love Team 8. Unfortunately I couldn't bring myself to read Naruto all the way through. It's a surprisingly popular team 8 fanfic.

I'm reading this chapter as we speak and this captures the scene perfectly. Kudos to the artist!

Great artwork and it matches the story so well. You can even see Shino trying hard not to smirk as he thinks about his two team-mates.
"Team 8" is often considered THE Naruto fanfic to read, this pic complements it perfectly.
Salutations, sir. Excellent work.

Without a doubt the best NaruHina story and one of the best Naruto fics (arguably better than canon) around

Nice. I'm in the middle of reading that fic after learning of it on TvTropes. You should be pleased to know they use your picture in the article about it.

Hmm... the piece is great... but something about Naruto NOT wearing orange just seems... wrong. 6.9

That's really quite excellent. A pity we can't see Kurenai's expression at this moment. Still, a wonderful amount of detail in the picture.

Ahhhhh...... another glorious Team 8 picture... I'm so happy it's getting more recognition (as it so justly deserves)

I'm very impressed with the picture. I do have one question though. I don't think it was ever emntioned that naruto wore a bandana now. Did you catch that or did I miss it, because I thought that's how he was mistaken for the Fourth in the clearing was by his hair.

But other wise you did a great job of cpaturing the moment!

You missed it. He did wear a bandana in the new outfit. It was only mentioned briefly though.

I'd expressed my love for "Team 8" in my reviews over at, and when I thought about "Team 8" fanart, I went to search for them. I found this through the writer's DA page, and I'm glad I found "Team 8" art that allows me to see Naruto's new uniform. :)

Hmmm.... His uniform doesn't seem to reflect what I vision it to be in the fanfic. It looks like his orange jumpsuit with the exception of change of color. Besides that wrap on his head made me think he's a Sand shinobi, when I know he's not. ;p

Anyway, I'm faving this so I can come back to it. Great job on the art. :)
