Hello all! Well looky here! I did another one! Been a loooong time since I drew and posted the last one and I'm very satisfied with this one. I wanted to draw Deidara and Ichimaru because; A. They're awesome to the max B. It's been way too long since I've drawn any Naruto or Deidara stuff, and there can never be too much Ichimaruuu, and C. They're helping me get through all this Avatar Season Finale business. I've come to the conclusion that if I continue to think about it, nothing good will come from it. So Deidara and Ichimaru represent that part of me that was just a fan before shipping took me and beat me into submission. Thanks guys*bows to Deidara and Ichimaru*
Now, aside from that ramble, what have I to say, you might ask? Well, let's see. In the last one, Ichimaru was getting ready to do Byakurai, but I really wanted him to be attacking with Shinsou in this one. I liked the way it turned out on his end, but had some trouble with it on Deidara's part. Hope people can tell what that is. The basic premise of this pic is that, because I like them both so very much, I can't take sides, so, in my mind, if they fought, they'd be equals, which I've tried to illustrate here. Deidara's sent an exploding clay bird at Ichimaru who shoots Shinsou at him. They both dodge and the bird explodes behind Ichimaru and Shinsou goes right past Deidara. A stalemate of awesome power XD I really like the explosion personally. Was experimenting there and really like how it turned out. Also wanted to do realistic coloring here, which I've quite satisfied with. It's at night, but they're all lit up because of exploding birdies XD
Anyway, not too much else to say I suppose. Last day of the semester is tomorrow! WOOT!
