Naruto: Christmas by Risachantag Naruto: Christmas by Risachantag
^_^ Merry Christmas peoples!

...I actually drew this for the Wai-con fanart competition, and the NarutoFan holiday competition, (and because I wanted to dammit! =P) at the beginning of the month. Phwee... this has got to be one of the biggest projects I've undertaken this year. I've made up a step-by-step tutorial to go with it, which you can find here: [link]

I spent a long time just trying to plan the picture out; just deciding which characters to include was hard enough. I was originally going to go with a Naruto, Sakura, Sasuke and Kakashi picture, but with the way the recent manga and anime is going, the Naruto, Shikamaru, Chouji, Neji and Kiba combination just seemed to work. (And I've been looking for an excuse to draw them for a while. They just rock! :XD:) But yes, no Sasuke =( (Though I'm sure one of those presents Sakura is holding is for him >_^)


-Photoshop 7, around 20 hours over the space of six days

*EDIT* This was drawn just after Sasuke had left Konoha, so please stop asking where he is. It wouldn't be right to include him here.

This is lovely! Saw it on fb today where it was featured. Absolutely great composition. 20 hours is a lot of time but I think it was worth spending on this :nod:

I love the detail and all the activity. Guy and Kakashi are still as war. Jaraya and Tsunade are up on the roof drinking. And Naruto is gleefully tearing open his gift.

Oh, this picture... There's just so much to love. Your style is great; this isn't so dynamic that it's overly busy, but just the right balance! I really envy your coloring skill, too.
