So this is the second of two ancient Naruto commissions that I’ve decided to release now. This one caused me a lot of stress and anxiety at the time I made it, for a number of reasons, but now I’m releasing it in the hopes some of you might enjoy it. I’ve taken the liberty of editing out some of the more upsetting elements from the original image, so hopefully it’s a bit more palatable. I don’t really know much about the Hyūga clan dynamics or the implications that come with them, though, so I apologize if this one’s still upsetting for some people. At the time I drew this, I remember feeling like it was one of the best pics I’d done (even though I hated it), so I had a lot of mixed feelings at the time about not just this pic, but the fact that I wasn’t going to be able to release it. Now in 2020 it’s obviously far from my best work, but it’s my hope some of the people who keep asking about Naruto pics will be able to get something out of it.
I also cropped a version I could share on sites like Twitter, so if you just want Hinata there’s this:
