Naruto: Blood and Sand by Risachantag Naruto: Blood and Sand by Risachantag
After reading my big sister's latest fanfic, I just had to go draw a baby Gaara! You can find the fanfic here: [link] (It's very good! Read!)

...It's been a while since I've done anything this dark (I got to play with my sand and blood brushes! Yay! ...I think), it certainly made a change from my usual fanart. I think the hardest thing about this picture was finding the right balance between scary and cute; the last thing I wanted to do was a "Baby" picture.

-About 7 hours
-Photoshop 7

Gaara looks so cute but does gaara mean blood in japanese because sakura means cherry blossom.

Really like all the sand pouring into the cradle/cot/bed/thing and the subtle contrast of blood, and you DID manage to combine scary with cute, since Gaara is an adorable baby!!!
Great work :)

Just a suggestion -- I suggest you watermark this. ^^; I've reported at least 5 art thefts of it on DA in the last 6 months, and DA seems to have no interest in dealing with it even though I've provided them with direct links. I love the picture and would hate to see someone try to do more with it, like sell it.

This is a haunting and beautiful picture. I especially like the composition, how the baby Gaara is highlighted, yet how the eye is drawn to the sand arms coming around the sides. Really excellent.

I went and read the story too. :) If I don't have time to leave a review there as well, you can let your sister know that she has another fan. It was a really engrossing read.
