Because We're Friends by Rozefire Because We're Friends by Rozefire
I'm still on a Naruto fanart roll here! :D

Wanted to do something epic and upscale for a change... but then I gave up and did this instead. The fur was HILARIOUS to do. Most fun I've had since christmas '98. NOTICE THE RIPPLES AND THE QUIFFS, DAMMIT! It took ages, man. T_T

Anyway, a pic of Naruto/Kyuubi and Sasuke for my fellow narutards. (Sasuke's probably kacking his pants right about now.) I'll probably do a tutorial of this in the near fufture since I have so many early versions of it stored away.

Tool: Photoshop CS only.
Time: 3 days-ish.

I'm still a sickie! :faint:

FULL VIEW, plz, Pretty People!

Oh, and the tutorial is up now: [link]

EDIT: Tweaked the image a little. Fixed the major gaff I made with Kyuubi's teeth and corrected some of the shadows, as well as changed his eyes a little to make him look a little more pissed off. :XD:

And I should probably explain the concept behind the picture, both for those who aren't familiar with Naruto and those who are but still don't know what the hell this picture means:

When Naruto tries to stop Sasuke leaving Konoha at the end of part I, Sasuke asks 'Why' to which Naruto responds, "Because we're friends." Even so, Naruto is unable to save Sasuke from his curse and Sasuke runs away, severing their friendship.

This picture depicts a reversed situation where it is now Naruto falling prey to his own curse, and Sasuke is the one stepping up to stop Naruto's mad rampage to bring him home. Why?

Because despite what has happened between them, they're still friends.

This made me squee so hard. XD

Oh, I love this. I love the concept, I love the lighting, I love Sasuke's billowing cloak of epicness.
Also, I have never seen a cooler Kyuubi. Maaaaan... *squees and dances around the room a bit*

Good work!

I love this piece. I've always wished there were a fanfic based on it. On well, maybe I'll write a one-shot this weekend. Nothing better to do. It is definitely EPIC! ^_^

The title hit me the most because of the value of the words in the series.
