"Once appeared a monstrous Nine Tailed Fox. One swing of it's mighty tail could crumble mountains and cause tsunamis. To fight the monster, the people assembled the shinobi. One brave shinobi was able to seal up the monster but he lost his life. That shinobi was called the Fourth Hokage."
- Naruto, Chapter 1

Yay! Naruto fan art!
It's not my best work but after not doing any fan art in months, I'm happy with it. I've been reading so much Naruto manga I'm surprised I haven't drawn more. Oh well, time to catch up.

Drawn and colored in Open Canvas 3.0
Time: 4hrs...I think, I always lose track of time doing this...

Yondaime and Kyuubi (c) Masashi Kishimoto
Art (c) Me

EDIT: Though it's probably too late for this, I put a watermark on this pic because for some reason people have been taking and using my picture without my permission on other sites and wallpapers and etc, etc. So, to prevent any further tampering, this was needed. Guh...

2011 EDIT - Well, I went back and edited the one thing that has always bothered me about this picture. I fixed Yondaime's hands. I made this painting so long ago and really wanted to tweak it to make it 'better' but it's kinda hard to do. I may make a few more changes to it in the future. Please continue to enjoy it! ^_^

I love it! Yondaime looks like a bit like a kid, though! xD It's cute.

Oh, thank you!
Yeah, old art is old.
I've improved a lot since I made this but...
for some reason its still got this many views!?!
I focused too much on Kyuubi, but that was the point.
RAWR! Glad you like it anyway! :XD:
I like the way you drew the kyuubi!
yea ninetails! i wish i was ninetails.

Thanks so much! Took forever to paint that fur detail. Oh! *hides face* This pic is so old...embarassing! (/_\)
I could imagine it would take a while, hehe, I'd probably quit halfway through, then come back like..a MONTH later..

I'm lazy like that.
