Edit. This is not my Opus, but I at least did something:maeiounj.tumblr.com/post/10200…
Ill create my opus sometime this month hopefully.
Naruto, my Childhood. Part of the craziness that started it all. Its pretty much where I would considered my childhood at the end. And of course my username where I was pretty into Naruto.
In a way, you never realized, I have seen other anime beforehand. I had the trend for YuYu Hakashow, DBZ or Sailor Moon. However Naruto is the one I would say that would open my eyes to a whole new world I never knew of. I learn about the definition of manga and anime, and was more ok with my geekdom of anime and manga. Started anime conventions and cosplay. Loving music. Doing art as a Career. Becoming known by my friends as the Manga Encyclopedia. Meeting alot of famous people within the anime and video game community. Finding a bigger circle of Friends. Experimenting with various art fields like film and sound. In technicallity, I thank my best friend : I am thankful as thanksgiving comes upon us.
In a way, I as well saw Naruto in the same was as if he was like Jesus. In faith and as a ninja, never giving up, being strong, and doing the right thing despite the fact you are weak are important traits for Christian and as well as an artist. I am thankful as thanksgiving comes upon us.
My most emo story has some traits of naruto too. Shunsuke started out as just a really emo version of Sasuke. Hideaki was sort of like Naruto but I need to change it so it was my character, Naokoto was like Orochimaru, and Tatsuya I can't recall all too well.
I at most would declare this Naruto month, but I have yet to decide what I am going to do. I might get my game face on and draw my ultimate piece(s) for Naruto's farewell as like a direct letter. I would call it my second magnum opus, as raven would of been my first. The only obstacle would be my art school though, or my laziness. But sooner or later, Ill be in the mood to get it done. Or maybe send a commission to the cover, but Its very unlikely I can make that deadline at this very moment.
That isn't to say I didn't at least do something for Kishi. I sent my thanks yous and Farewells to Kishi through a forum by Shonen Jump. ANd you should too!shonenjump.thank-you-masashi-k…shonenjump.viz.com/thanks-naru…
