Both the animation and the music in Itachi by *MichelVictor bring to life the dark and mysterious essence of this character, making you feel the fear running through your blood as his mere glance captivates you and unables you to take your eyes off it. Mesmerizing!

There's only one word can sum up this work...EPIC!!! This is some epic animation I've seen so far and I'm loving every bit of it! I may not be a big fan of Naruto but this animation just makes this character more bad-ass than in the show! The music you used just emphasizes a lot more edginess, emotion and wounder of the character and the picture is clean with the shadows and lighting in all the right places. All in all, 5 stars is not enough because you blew me away! Continue making masterpieces like this, you are on fire! <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/w/w…" width="15" height="15" alt=";)" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="387" title=";) (Wink)"/>

To be extremely fair: I love almost everything about it!
I mean, I haven't seen anyone trying to bring Itachi to reality, so this version of him is the first I've ever seen and the best so far. Really the details stand out, I like the scene that you have chosen (the most famous .gif of Itachi is pretty similar to this - the wind blows left to right, the Konoha Leaf sigh is pretty clear on his forehead and his eyes mysteriously stare right at you, but you cannot look him in the eye, or he will put a genjutsu on you).
I like the music, the rock rhythm with mystery keyboards really describes the mystery that is Itachi Uchiha.
Thank you for this beautiful piece of digital art/flash animation!

Wow! This is amazing! You did justice to Itachi. There are very few artwork I have seen on DA which depicts Itachi as he is. You made his features exactly like his character. The fire shadows on his forehead protector are awesome. It gives him a menacing look! Overall nice real life depiction of itachi. There are some minor mistakes like his right eye is a little far apart. Itachi's eyes are his biggest asset. You should make his eyes a little bit bigger and attractive maybe. Add a little bit more details and your artwork will be perfect! The music is the coolest!!! <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)"/> Keep up the good work!

Amazing, I just couldn't look away. I love how this seems to be realistic, almost as if he's walking from a fire towards you. It gives off a dangerous appeal to the eyes. The sharingan gleams perfectly attracting your own eyes to see the power in this. The flames dance and give off shadows only adding to the feel of power. I may be going over board and I may not be, but it won't stop me from saying how amazingly well done this was. The lights and shadows seemingly dance and makes you wonder where he is, what is he doing? I love this.

Wow the overwhelming appearance of Itachi Uchiha when you look at the picture how his gaze just grabs you and you are hooked on how he looks at you you just feel chills down your spine and you blood just cools down he. Looking at the picture he is the true meaning if fear. Keep looking at it you might not know what he will do he might strike he might kill you don't your just hooked on his eyes and you can't fight the feeling of just looking into his cold violent eyes It's Just so Breath taking WONDERFUL I love This Picture so much Keep up the good work Beautiful his eyes just so breathtaking

I love the overall look of it, and I love the feeling that the work shows. Even thou I'm not a naruto Fan i rather like watching other stuff, I love what you did with Itachi. The soundfx works really well you can tell the fire burning, the soundtrack chosen makes a perfect combination with the imagery. I like the small animation you did because I can see were the wind is coming and is moving the fire, hair, and cloth to one direction, it looks like something small but not everyone does that or don't pay attention to it. But i think there's should be less light in the right part of the face since the cloth is blocking the fire and part of the face, and there's should be more light in the left side. Overall I believe this piece works very well and perfectly.

This animation personifies the complexity of Itachi's character. While we all know him to be the one who murdered his entire clan, we've also learned that he loved his village, his family, and most importantly, Sasuke. The facial expression is very in-character. It's calm, collective, and, from what I see, a little mellow and reflective. A clear sign that there is more to this character than just the surface details, he's not just a cold-hearted killer. MichelVictor conveyed that point masterfully. As far as details such as the proper shadowing, texture effects, and the glow from the fire, they're all there in fine order. The fire also helps project that reflective feeling on Itachi's face I mentioned above.

Not only has MichelVictor created a stunning digital painting with phenomenally realistic detail, he has also pushed this art to an entirely new level by animating it. With entirely believable visual effects and awesome audio, this piece is truly fitting and respectful of the character it portrays, and gives Itachi the most human feel I've ever seen. This is so well put together, I have trouble finding a negative to point out. Even the warping in the heat is accurate. I guess I can only say that I wish you moved him around even more, I truly believe you are capable of doing so. It's a shame the entire show can't be animated to this level.
