We all know Naruto is a brash, fun and carefree character that epitomizes a shonen manga main protagonist.
Although, he carried burden within that of forlorn, darkness and literally a demon, the nine-tailed.
So I decide to take a different route and deter from the usual "cool leaping intense rasengan Naruto" depiction and the attempt for maturity that should depict his 'inner battle'.
- Masashi Kishimoto
- Naruto Shippuden manga and anime.
DO CHECK MY OTHER NARUTO SHIPPUDEN WORKS, TQ:
Naruto looks cool and grown-up here! Nice piece.
could you teach me how to draw or give me some advice (linking books or tutorials you learned from would be awesome as well)
Very awesome Naruto pic!
this is too good
huh, im very surprised i missed this one. Probably the most cleanest, slickest, awesome naruto artwork I seen on this site. love it!
I'm not going to talk about colors and style here wich is just perfect for me, but, they way you can catch that realism from anime style, like, all drawed anime characters may look real, but not actually like those characters, here, i can see it's naruto, real naruto, you can imagine him now in real life. Your drawings are perfect, love them!
God, it is perfect
I like this realistic version of naruto. Makes him more manly =3
omg your art look like from game Great job!! I love your work
Amazing!!! Simply amazing!!!
Imagine if anime was really done this way... It would be so beautiful
So amazing *-* ♥
Great job and very pretty
Dddddddaaaddaaadddddddaaaannnnnnnggggggg that's an awesome naruto!!!
I like it!!
This is very well done, on a technical level. Pretty colors, good shading, and overall nice to look at. There's just one thing that bothers me--but I could be wrong here. I'm not sure if it was intentional (if it was, I guess just disregard this) but the eyes--the whole face really--feels a bit devoid of emotion. Now after reading your description, I kind of get the "inner turmoil, outer apathy" type deal you may have been going for, but when I look at those eyes I don't hear or feel anything. It seems less like a person whose earned maturity and respect going through a hard time, and more like... I don't know, one of Sasori's puppets during battle. Everything else is there, it's just the eyes.
Other than that, you have amazing talent so please don't think I'm just nitpicking or bashing. Just trying to offer insight to a fellow artist.
Thanks for your time!
Yes, in a general sense of art I can see what you meant. But when you are making realism from anime or illustration, there are things that you can't bring from the anime expression to a 'real' face. We are used to see Naruto with 'fierce' eyebrow expression that here it may look tame. But then again this isn't a linear depiction, you can view it in multiple interpretation
Personally, I view it as the 'acceptance' of this once inner self before he has control of the Nine-Tail beast - hence his calm demeanor, even grateful of the deep darkest hatred because it makes him grow.
I did initially make him looking fierce and struggling, but if watch few episodes from Season 12 (he trained with Killer Bee to have control of the Tailed beast), the way to beat his inner hatred is to embrace it - so making him having an aggressive expression kind of repels his goal to conquer his battle within.
At least that is what I went for here
On another note regarding my realism-anime, it sort of hovers near the premise of uncanny valley if the subject matter isn't looking too real like a human being but a bit more organic than a 3D graphic, so I may have stumble yet again the 'doll face' effect, so thanks for your input as it's been a personal challenge. Cheers!
looks like a girl.
Wow! Looks awesome!
oh my god <3
Can't you tell me which software you used to make it.. ?
Adobe Photoshop CS6
But that's just half of the tool, the other half is a decent pen and tablet: Wacom Intuos 5.
You make him look so HANDSOME!!
Damn!!! Really badass!
(that's all I've got to say...)
