I’ve talked a bit about some of the old Naruto commissions I did back when I was still mostly doing art as a side thing. At the time they were a huge point of stress in my life for a number of reasons, and kind of permanently damaged my ability to interact with Naruto or its spin-offs/sequels/whatever. I’ve taken two of these commissions that never got released originally and decided to go ahead and share them. This is the first of them, which features Hanabi watching her sister get fucked by Sasuke. This commission wasn’t too problematic for me like some of the others from this era, but it was still pretty unpleasant to create what was (at the time) one of my better pics and not be able to release it. I’m not an expert on this franchise by any means, but I think these versions of the characters may be from one of the movies (but I could also be misremembering, I don’t care enough to look it up). Anyway, I’ll release the other pic I’ve decided I can some time later.
So this Ask isn’t really up my alley in any capacity, as you might have guessed. Beyond my normal issues with the Naruto franchise, I’m just not that interested in underwear? So this one was pretty boring to work on, but I know there are folks out there who do not feel that way. My hope is this will do something for those of you who like these characters and enjoy underwear. ^_^; It’s been a long time since I watched any of Naruto, but I tried to get what I could remember of their personalities across in the answer. Honestly, the writing part is the hardest part of these “ogle” Asks (to borrow Naruto’s description of them). It’s easy enough to just draw the character (naked or otherwise) standing around to be ogled, but there’s only so much I can do with the answer portion. I do feel like they need to say something, but just saying “Okay!” or “Like this?” or whatever isn’t super interesting. Once I started writing Naruto, though, he didn’t seem to want to shut up, so I ended up with a bit wordier of a response than I’d originally intended (though far from the wordiest).
So this Ask could’ve been answered with just Goku talking to the camera, but then I thought it’d be neat to try and show him with some random crossover boy (even though he doesn’t really have an actual answer to the question. I ended up adding two more boys just ’cause… I’d never accept an Ask that demanded this many characters, but since it was my own decision it’s okay. ^_^; I went with three random boys, trying my best to avoid any sort of theme or anything with the selections. Just three boys who would be in the studio. I guess Goku’s pretty popular around the NH Studio, and he’s such an easy-going guy that he just goes along with whatever.
I don’t usually accept Naruto commissions, due to a bad experience when I was younger and more desperate to get commissions, but I made an exception this time around for one of the blog’s regular commenter who’s been wanting to commission something for a while. Don’t expect there to be much more Naruto around here, though, the aforementioned bad experience has ingrained an automatic distaste in me for the series and its characters. Even though I get along well with the client who commissioned this pic, working on it did remind me why I typically avoid Naruto like the plague.
That being said, it was fun to try out a new angle on the old spitroast position. It inspired me to push for a similar angle of the same pose in the Space Warped script, so if you see a panel similar to this image there, that’s why. I hope those of you who haven’t had Naruto ruined for you forever like I have can enjoy this pic; I know I’ve gotten requests for Naruto yaoi in the past, and chances are this is all of it I’ll ever do. 🙂
I recently completed a commission for ragingspeed featuring the Road to Ninja versions of some characters. Here’s a slightly tweaked version of the final product, as well as the lineart for an earlier draft that was redone (I liked both positions for Hinata, so I wanted to share them here).
I’m not a big Naruto fan, so I’m not familiar with what Road to Ninja is. I’m guessing, based on the images I saw pulling up references for this, that it’s an alternate universe story with the Naruto characters, but that’s just a guess. Either way, here they are, and I hope you guys enjoy the pic. 🙂
This image started as a commission, but the commissioner wanted to keep their purchase private. I support that, but since I put a lot of work into this image, I convinced them to let me release an altered version, which you see here. Prostitution is not a theme I typically visit, but here’s one pic of it for those of you who enjoy that.
I never really cared for Naruto myself. I read the first few volumes of the manga, but it never held my interest and I gravitated away to other things. So, probably there won’t be much else of Naruto on from me in the future, unless it’s commissioned or crops up in a crossover project of some kind (of which I have a few planned).
I recently finished my time at university, and should have a lot more time to devote to my art now. I have another commission or two I need to work on, and then I’d like to get back to Eromugen and some other pics that have been sitting half-finished on my computer for a while. Once I get caught up, I’d like to try starting some other comics that update a page at a time like Eromugen, though we’ll see just how much time I actually end up having.
