Itachi n Kabuto: Gentle by Yakushi--Kabuto Itachi n Kabuto: Gentle by Yakushi--Kabuto
I don't think you really need these as much as you think you do...this may hurt, but...you'll be better off.


I have to say I'm still fairly enchanted by Itachi. So many things combined from those chapters with Kabuto-san just.... keep me awestruck. He's truly a glorious character.

Not quite as glorious as Kabuto-san of course.

Anyway enjoy the art. I had so many pen-tragedies making it and the scanner murdered it buuut oh well. Enjoy it anyway!

Itachi Uchiha, Kabuto Yakushi (c) Masashi Kishimoto

Gorgeous pic! Itachi quite personifies dragon-slayer/dragon-tamer archetype in Naruto.

I know ... that interaction between them in the manga was one of my favorites.

I'm interested in those wings on Itachi. I almost didn't see them. And I like the smoky background.

I still find it funny that, of all people, Itachi is the one reaching out to Kabuto. Who could've ever guessed that in a million years, mm? But it makes so much sense, as well. It really is one of the more beautiful relationships in the manga (Relationship meaning a kind of friendship, not going Yaoi on you D: haha).

It's funny..have you ever listened to "The Grace" by Neverending White Lights? This picture reminds me a bit of the video for it (Except Itachi is cutting off Kabuto's horns, whereas in the video, an angel gets her wings sewn on). But just the overall mood of the picture sort of relates it to that video for me. That bittersweetness of knowing you're doing what's best, but also just...I can't explain it. Just this really overwhelming sense of bittersweetness. If you ever watch it, maybe that'll explain it, haha xD

You created a beautiful mood in this picture. Itachi's expression is a perfect mix of softness and concentration. The overall idea of cutting off the horns is just beautiful symbolism in itself. Very good job, Mr. A

These pictures with Itachi and Kabuto are BEAUTIFUL! XD

I'll try to put my fangirling/gasming about Itachi aside as I say this (you don't know how hard that is).

It's easy to be "enchanted" by Itachi as you said I think because Kishimoto did an excellent job at developing him as both a skilled and feared shinobi, as well as intelligent, sympathetic, and tragic. I think he felt so bad for Kabuto not only because he saw Kabuto as the same as himself but also as a way to make up for basically....messing up Sasuke (he tried to manipulate his brother for the better but obviously things just got out of hand...but like Itachi himself said, he's "not perfect").

BTW the Kabuto fight has also been one of my favorite set of chapters as of late (when I'm bored, I tend to like to backtrack 20 or 30 chapters from what's currently out and I always make sure to read over this part when I do).

Also, I love the Itachi depiction with feathers. Strangely, I don't know whether or not this was your intention or not, but I DON'T see it as an angel wings depiction....not just because obviously he has crows and that's what they're representing, but as much as I like Itachi...."angel" I don't know if that's the word I'd used to depict him. I guess the best way I can think of it is, he might be a fallen angel.....but otherwise he's lived a too much of a secluded and blood-stained life for me to think of them as "angel wings." Never-the-less, I love them :)....along with awesome dragon Kabuto of course.

Sorry if I seem to be only be focusing on Itachi....you could probably say my passion for him is similar to yours for Kabuto.

Thank you very much! ANd i agree, kishimoto is truly a master of storytelling when it comes to creating his characters...

i was more thinking crow wings than angel wings! so its good you dont get the angel impression XD and dont worry, i completely understand enfatuation.

Indeed, scanners can be quite the bitch sometimes -they don't particularily like water colour drawings either >>
Itachi is the #1 older brother in anime as far as I'm concerned where as Kabuto is the #1 underdog villain ^w^
Speaking of Kabu, I hope he wakes up soon D8>

Itachi is one of those characters you end up loving more and more, because he's so complex but so well pulled off. The same could be said for Kabuto of course, and I must say Kabuto's role and personality shocked me a lot more than Itachi's did. :'D Awesome picture. And the dialogue you put down is perfect.
