Merry Christmas, ! and I came up with the idea to collaborate on a story this year - she wrote it and I drew this to go with it
Here's Koyra's story!
Play It AgainWalking into the filled parking lot, I looked around at all the trucks and vehicles parked there, each with large speakers playing different songs, all depending on what section they were in. Looking around, I turned to one of the guys that I had come with.
“Why did I let you talk me into this? Kiba, this is just like every other tailgate party I’ve let you drag me to over the years.” I jabbed playfully as I lightly punched my brown haired friend’s arm. With a fanged smile and a pat on his dog’s head, Kiba just shrugged before walking over to a group of guys. “Alright the party is here!” He called out as they all turned and greeted each other.
Laughing, I walked over as well and greeted the rest of my friends as we had all agreed to meet here. “Okay so what is our game plan now that we are all here? Just mingle or are we running a set of speakers tonight?” I turned my gaze towards my best friend, Sasuke, who always set this st
Man, this was so refreshing to draw! I've struggled a lot recently with drawing but this just flowed and I finally feel excited to draw again. Praise God! ;w;
I actually did all the coloring on one layer, except for the pattern on Naruto's shirt and some color manipulation. In the past, trying to do that has frustrated me, but this time I actually enjoyed it. I think it saved a little bit of time and allowed me to push the colors around more.

I think the lighting is EVERYTHING in this picture. SO pretty. <3 Amazing work!
Thank you so much!! The lighting was sooo fun to work with XD I feel like I learn a little more each time I try something like this.
Haven't seen you draw Naruto in a while. It's nice to see him again. Loving the outfit you have done for him. Those poses work well for both of them. That background really helps to capture the mood and bring them together.
Oh my goodness, so I logged on after a long day of opening and trying out multitudes of Christmas toys to see this in my inbox, and just...Wow! Words cannot describe how surprised I was and still am!
My goodness, this is absolutely breathtaking! From the colors used to the sweet expressions on their faces, I just can't stop staring at it. And that lace on Nozomi's blouse is amazing. Just how do you manage to make it look like lace and look so pretty at the same time?? And that pattern on Naruto's shirt is so well done, and that lighting too, just...I don't even have proper words right now to express how I feel anymore. xD You just.. *flails* You amaze me all the time, and I don't think it's a secret how much I admire you as a fellow artist. ^^
I still can't believe you and Koyra-chan were up to something like this! Many a night she watched me draw on skype and I was completely clueless! You both have made my day. Like seriously...please accept internet hugs until the day I can somehow find a way to meet you in person and can give you real ones. I'm so touched by this, like you have no idea...;w;
Yaaaay!! I'm so happy you like it!
Thank you so much! XD The lace is a bunch of little, random shapes and squiggles XD
I really enjoyed playing with the lighting! I learned a lot from references in the process, though I didn't make Naruto and Nozomi as heavily shadowed as they probably should be because I wanted you to be able to see them XD
Aww you're so sweet ;;w;;
Hehe I'm glad we were able to keep it a secret! >v< You're a dear friend and I love getting to surprise you with things like this XD
I'm grateful Koyra gave me the opportunity to take part!
OMG!!! This is sooo beautiful! I knew the outfits in my head were pretty but you made them look gorgeous! I’m still so honored by the fact you agreed to help me. To see an actual scene from one of my stories drawn out like this is amazing! Thank you so much!!!
