Kabuto and Dragon : True Colors by Yakushi--Kabuto Kabuto and Dragon : True Colors by Yakushi--Kabuto
Now that the powers of the snake-lord have been removed... what forms will this dragon take?

So, something I've been pondering lately. (spoilers if you haven't caught up)

Orochimaru removed all his powers from Kabuto, right? But, we know that sage-mode is something you have to learn on your own, its not some sort of kekkei genkai that you're born with or can steal from someone else. This, logically, means that even after Kabuto wakes up again from Itachi's genjutsu, he should still be able to go into sage mode...
but, will this look different now, without Orochimaru's influence?

So, anyway, last year around this time I drew Kabuto with a selfdragon, so i thought i'd give it another go but more Kabuto style :D
Enjoy!

I think his own untainted Sage-Mode may look a lot like you're Dragon-Kabuto, more purple and fluffy ^W^

I see his true colors, shining, I see his true colors. That's why he loves it, and don't be afraid.

I have to say, I actually really like purple dragon Kabuto. I love all the little highlights on the dragon. They give it real dimension. Now if only Kabuto's hair was still long. It looked so much better that way.

Love this. Love the dragon's colors and 'hair'. I like the light jewels reflected in his scales. [Ahem, Kabuto has dark eyes Mr. A. Mr. A says - :ignore: ] Maybe Kabuto's eyes are reflecting something.

Sage mode has to be learned and earned on your own but, you need enough chakra to do it. Not sure if Kabuto can call on sage mode without Oro's chakra. But I like the idea of him being very dragon like because he doesn't control it as well as he used to. [At least, that was the Toad Sage's explanation about someone taking on the look of the animal.]

But if Kabuto went that far into dragon form, wouldn't he be stuck like that then? Isn't that what Grandpa toad said? Or was that about the 'turning to stone' part? It was so long ago.
