The Haku and Zabuza Tribute!!!! The picture is now finished and posted! Hooray!!! It's about bloody time. I have been working on this for a couple of months now. (Actually I started it a year ago and then redrew it.... Ahem) Anyway...

I really wanted to take my time with this one, focusing on making the forest look as real as possible (I know it still looks cartoony... but that's my style. :P) I also really wanted to make Haku and Zabuza actually look fairly close to their anime selves... (I used a couple manga pictures as references to make sure I had their expressions right. ^ ^)


I think my idea on this was that they were sitting peacefully together right before they died... calm before the storm. Then while working on it though, I thought it would also work as an after death scene too. They made it to heaven together and are happy. *sniffles* Okay enough of that. ^ ^

End spoiler!

Favorite part: Hm... the color of Haku's shirt. I think it came out really nice... Considering the fact that I had to mix my dark greens and all of my aqua colors to get it that color. I hope it's close to being right. ^^;

Most difficult part: That would have to be the shadows... I have never done something like that before and it was a real challenge... However, now that I have given it a shot I might like to try it again... Maybe it will turn out even better.

Well that's about all I have to say. I hope you enjoy it. ^^

*comes to* Oh, wow, this is a terrific gallery.  Girl, you are awesome.  I've got very little to say because this is done so well.  Excellent use of perspective - the shafts of light draw the eye back further into the picture, and in the foreground of course they guide your eye straight to the subjects of the picture...  I love the peaceful forest scene that seems to contrast to the busy activity going on in the foreground; the girl looks worried or preoccupied and the fellow looks like he is concentrating on an important task  Just wondered if the two highest-up shafts of light should have stopped at the figure or if they should have continued: it looks to me like they are too far into the foreground to be hit by those, and perhaps they could be continuing in the background.  Other than that tiny detail, it's terrific: *faves*
