Legacy II by mollygrue Legacy II by mollygrue
shi painter oekaki made at OC

This is a second go at a theme I worked on a while back concerning Naruto's origins and how he is attached to his father's intentions. I think this is actually a strong theme for the entire series, the idea of the previous generation exerting it's influence on the younger and how one either reacts against or goes along with it. You can see examples of it in Gaara's story arch and in the ongoing Sasuke/Itachi dynamic.

I'm not sure that I like this version better or not. I think that they're just very different methods of telling the story.

This is INCREDIBLY sweet. I've been trying to find a picture like this recently and hadn't had any luck until now. I love everything about it, especially your coloring because it just sets the mood for it perfectly.

So glad you like it! This is one aspect of the series that could use more artists' attention.

This is a beautiful picture. I have to admit, though, that I've never seen an episode of Naruto before. When I first saw that pic I thought that it was Cloud from FFVII holding a baby (future love child with Tifa?) lol

I thought I commented on this? Oh well ...
So people still draw at OC, eh? I'mma hafta check it out more often ...
Your Naruto fanarts are always something special, this is giving me a strong Mary and baby Jesus vibe. And thank you, finally a picture in which Yondaime doesn't have his "faraway-look-and-distant-smile"-face. x__x This feels much more real, and present.
