Gaara sketchdump

He gets his own, because I like him the best.

Various sketches of that Gaara kid from Naruto, done sometime during the latter half of 2008.

First the twelve-year-old version, doing what he does best - deathglaring, hating your guts (but contemplating whether they'd be more tolerable outside you), sandcoffining and going all batshit. Then the thirteen-year-old (edit later: nope, he's still twelve, but moving on...) one, coloured mostly because I wanted to see if this brick-red marker called "Brown" would look okay for his hair (it does, the people who make Copics and Anko Mitarashi are clearly smoking the same stuff).

The last picture is what came to mind when I was watching Naruto and Sakura's "look how much I've grown" moments at the beginning of Shippuuden and wondered what the Gaaras of different ages might think of each other.

The bottom picture has a continuation here. :)

I have a question. Is it wrong that I find grown-up Gaara's remark funny? I hope not. I like this picture. It's so well done. I just added this to my favorites.

Yay! Um..What's wrong with tiny Gaara and crazy Gaara?
Your welcome.

In what way do you mean what's wrong?
XNocturnalTigerlilyX's avatar
I mean what made Tiny Gaara so sad? And what made Crazy Gaara go all batshit? I'm so sorry if I sound rude and I'm sorry if I offended you.

Ah. Just, stuff that happens to him in the manga.
