Kabuto: Shed by Yakushi--Kabuto Kabuto: Shed by Yakushi--Kabuto
Looking at my own body, an empty shell seen through three pairs of eyes....even I can't remember what was going through my heads at the time.

(minor spoilers ahead)
I'm a bit fascinated that Kabuto has that ability to separate into snakes and then reform into his whole self again. I really wonder what that feels like. And i wonder if that ability is now lost with Orochimaru's powers...

maybe we'll never know!

enjoy the art! my scanner somehow turned half the grays into browns, but it sortof works....

Kabuto Yakushi belongs to Masashi Kishimoto

My big sis has hangover after new year's party, and when I saw this I thought; 'Shit, Kabuto-san had drank too!'

The I looked closely; 'Oh, he shed his skin.'

Happy new year anyway...

I don't know Mr. A, that's kind of creepy looking with the eyeballs falling out and all. It looks more like the snakes took over him and left a human shell behind.

One snake looks mean, one looks curious and the other almost looks like a dog worried about his master. Did you use the markers again?

FEELINGS! I AM DROWNING IN FEELINGS! HELP! I DUNNO WHAT TO DO WITH THEM!


ASDFGHJKLASDFGHJKLASDFGHJKL *Sobs grossly* UGH! My 18 year old teenage heart hurts right now......
Are you srsly trying to kill people with your drawings?! ;___;

This is perfect!
When looking at this drawing, it's like seeing through Kabuto's eyes. I have often thought, what younger Kabuto would have thought of himself, if he saw what he turned out to when injecting Orochimaru's cells into him.
...It also depends how young. Let's try imagine a genjutsu, that would be able to take a person, and show them how they could turn out in the future...
Child Kabuto would probably been very frightened, if he found out that he would turn into a snake man and master of a jutsu to control the death. And make sure to never become what he saw...
19-20 year old Kabuto, when he worked alongside Oro... well, I actually believe he would be shocked... and ask himself if he's really that "obsessed" with his master... And also be fascinated at how powerful he'd become.

But now, as I look at this drawing, it's Kabuto looking back at his past, right after getting out from the izanami... with a new view on life! Realizing... that he was really close to turn into a monster... which he knows his mother would have get broken to see. Now, we don't know yet if Nonou is dead or still alive, but either way... I do wonder if he ever asked himself, as he tried to find himself; "If mother were here by my side... what would she think of me?"
......But really, try imagine someone asking Kabuto, while he injected Orochimaru's cells... "Kabuto... what would your mother think, if she saw what is about to happen to you?"

Well, I've always seen Kabuto as a good guy deep down. I now that sounds wierd, but he has never been purely evil! And I think you could see that when he cried in front of Itachi and Sasuke... poor soul...
Summary, I hope Kabuto has a big changing view on life when he gets out from the genjutsu... and do what he feel is right! Looking back at his past, and his mistakes... I believe that is what he'll do from now on.


I agree with ~Hikari4444 here; the shades of greys and sepia-browns compliments each other gorgeously here... a nice mix of warm and cold tones!
...I must also say, that the expressions of the snakes makes me smile. XD The one on the left is like: "Dude, he's dead?" The middle one's like: "Should I tickle him with my tounge and see if he reacts?" And the right one: "Well... he smell funny." ...I know, silly. XD

Oh, and I like how clean and thin the line art is. I can see you have a really steady hand when inking lines!
This drawing has a simple vision; it's easy and comfy took look at, but I also admire the small details you put into this one, like the snakes scales, and the folds of the cape. :)


Epic work as usual!!! :peace:

I’ve always felt there was more to Kabuto than the evil dude that everyone else seemed to see XD but you I am sure saw that much from all my work….

I wonder what Kabuto will say of his progression in the manga when he wakes up all the way…

Your comment has so much depth and detail :) thanks for taking the time to write it.
I’m glad you like this one! Thank you!

Ah, I also wonder how it looked like when he was trying these abilities for the first time. Using them lightly, probably, took much training... Probably he saw Orochimaru using it many times, but still...

Nice piece!
Now that I think about it I wonder what happens to Kabuto's mind when he does that.
Does it go to only one snake and controls the other or is it split between all of them?
