Sk- Orochimaru- lonesome dance by xxdhxx Sk- Orochimaru- lonesome dance by xxdhxx
This is Orochimaru from Naruto, looking fairly bishonen. I tried to work more with the CP9 system although im stil findning the watercolor system frustrating. I'm making this a sketch because its not as developed as I was hoping for, but I'm still happy.

image D*H 2005
Orochimaru, Naruto M Kishimoto, TV Tokyo 2005

5.23.5 edit - I uploaded a slightly cropped & edited version. I was not diggin' the text before -- it looked to norweigan & uniform, like Helvetica or somethin',....

2.14.06 edit - This image was originally much darker, but because my monitor was wrongly callibrated for so long, it appeared much lighter to everyone else. i reuploaded the gamma corrected version. :D

this is very beautiful; the tones you have used suit Orochimaru's dark nature. The traditional mask is a nice touch also, and the hands are perfect! (I find them one of the harder features to draw.) What does the writing to the side say?

The mask adds to his darkness! The highlights are perfect! He had graduated from the evil bad-guy in Naruto to
The moody beauty inside this pic! Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful!

Dude, this is so fucking cool. I mean, not that I dig Naruto, or any other anime, but.. your drawing rocks. The nocturnal feel to the lighting, the hand anatomy, the 3d look your colouring gives it. Nice.

I like the lighting, and the mask, but not his face... I just think the cheek bones are way to light, to suddenly.
just a difference in taste though I suspect.

You made Orochimaru look good. That's a gift, hon. *snickers* Seriously though, I very very much love the colouring job in this one. It's sharp but soft at the same time. My eyes love to linger in the lightnings of his arms.

Uuh, I've tried to hiss down my fangirl-reflexes and not to favourite Naruto-art Just Because, but this one has just talent stamped all over it, I gotta favourite it. :heart:

Simply fantastic. Great pose, and the overall tone suits him very well. My only complaint is that the mask seems a little flat. Otherwise, breathtaking. :+fav:
