Nice job! I like how you have the face as the background with a slightly lower opacity, it gives it a really neat feel Nice job on the forehead protector and the scar of the sharingan. I like how you shaded this as well
Hehe, just call it coming up with creative ways to get out of drawing a background... it's not that I can't draw backgrounds - if you look at the pic of Kiba and Akamaru on my pront page, the desktop screenshot, I drew that background! I think sometimes I just get... not bored exactly, but the characters are so much more interesting to draw than trees, grass, sky, whatever
I've drawn so many Kakashis, so this was fun, I really copped out on his Sharingan though...
Still, these are a lot of fun, and I am even getting requests!!
