ZETSU by free-energy03 ZETSU by free-energy03
Requested by the 'Kween! :iconcalicokween:

I haven't sketched just to sketch for a long time. I usually turn them into something else, but my main goal here was just to sketch.

It's not cleaned or polished much. Just sketched, scanned, and adjusted the brightness and sharpness in PS a little.
I think the rougher look kinda fits with the picture.

NOTE: Where are Zetsu's hands??? I think they are inside his flytrap so I drew it that way, and since half of his body is black, i just assumed his hand was too :shrug:

NOTE 2: (11-5-07) Made his hand smaller, it should look more proportionate now.

free-energy03 Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2011

ya k no ay muchas imag de Zetsu en general!!

No se pork pero se le a dado poca atencion a este personaje de mi parte YO!! pienso eso, y por ende creo que kien intente darle algo de diversidad a este personaje es alguien en kien talvez no le salga BIen, pero por lo menos le dad algo de importancia y trata de realizar algo k los demas puedde k piensen inutil.

Thanks for the kind words, Zetsu isn't one of the more popular Akatsuki members, but I'm glad you thought my drawing of him stood out among the others!

Mini critque: Your drawing is very well done. The proportioning is brilliant, as well as the detail. Although it seems as though you used the least amount of lines possible, it looks so, so... Amazing. I can tell you really spent a lot of time around the rocks, and on the plant, but their face, it's just utterly absurd how good you did. His expression is one of profound meaning, and it makes me wonder what's going on in their head. Althought there is no background, what you have around Zetsu is perfectly placed that there is no need for one. You make Kishimoto look bad my friend, and that says alot.
free-energy03 Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2010
Thanks very much for the positive critique. With sketches like this, it's hard to decided where certain hatch lines should go, too much in any given area makes the pic look unbalanced. But I'm glad it seems this one has that balance. Thanks again!

Nice and clean shading. The tree and rocks looks realistic. How I wish I would sketch as clean as that. Good job by the way! :+fav:
aba1 Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2009  Student General Artist
hahahaha i love it the rocks look greak love the shading <3
MidnightDhampyr Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2009
Well, for a sketch, it's excellent. <3

....I'll see if my one a.m. brain can come up with concrit...

Well, for one I know that I could never use pen like that, ever. I fail at using ink. D:

The fingernails on his hand should be a lighter color though. He paints them lavendar, so...yeah. Shouldn't be black. Kudos for remembering his ring placement, though. Or remembering his ring in the first place. I think this is the first time I've actually seen it included.
xtreamxboxer Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2009
amazing. im stunned for more words.
Veretai Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2009
