Parting by Yakushi--Kabuto Parting by Yakushi--Kabuto
So take a look at me now....there's just an empty space. There's nothing left here to remind me, just the memory of your face...so take a look at me now, I'll just be standing here...
-Take a Look at Me Now (Postal Service Cover)

I assume that if Kabuto-san was woken up before he had a chance to have a change in his mentality, Seeing himself stripped of Orochimaru's powers would break him yet again.
Fortunately, I am very sure that when he wakes up he will have some new perspective on things and will be more grateful than horrified at what Orochimaru did.

I've thought that Orochimaru simply leaving him there, without his ill-gotten powers but otherwise unharmed, was....a strangely kind gesture, in a backhanded sort of way.

Nice work, the way their expressions hint at a wealth of emotion without letting us pin any of it down.

When you're gone
The pieces of my heart are missing you
When you're gone
The face I came to know is missing too
When you're gone
The words I need to hear to always get me through
The day and make it ok
I miss you....

Beautiful. I love the colours and the shadows... you did a great job, here, with the deepness of the figures... and Kabuto's eye is beautiful! O_O I like your long lines - the mouth is especially nice to look at.
My compliments!

I LOVE that Kabuto's eyelashes are also silver-gray. It really goes well with the skin tones used.

It was really quite sad seeing Orochimaru take his chakra from Kabuto...it was like he was really stripping Kabuto make to the very basics. Although it will probably be better for him in the long run.

I love the different colors in Kabu kun's hair. [Oro's has depth too but I don't like him.] How do you do that digitally? Awesome. :deviation: And if Kabuto still has the dna, couldn't he rebuild the chakra and get the power back?

Poor Kabuto-san, again... But maybe he would be okay with it, since then all his powers would be his own, not someone else's? Who knows.

I would like to see those two fight as a team again...!

I love the way you colored the hair and the eye in this one. So lively.
Although, Kabuto's mouth looks a bit strange. And lol, he has pretty eyelashes :D

Ohhhh, great!! :D

Naww, but no he can't wake up, if he isn't changing his mentality.
Nice work with the hair, you must've used many colours and shadings to get that look. I wonder what Kabuto is thinking of... he looks depressed. And I wonder if Orochimaru has plans for him, or will leave him all alone from now on.
What do you think? Will Kabuto walk his own path now? That would be... great actually. However, I support any way of what he will do next. And do you think Orochimaru will part up with Kabuto again? Maybeee.~

When seeing this, I get an intense will, that Orochimaru walks up to Kabuto, and gives him a hug.
However, that would be kinda oot... or maybe... I do really wonder Orochimaru's deeper thought about Kabuto's condition and mental state. Does he think Kabuto did wrong or right?
Wrong or right... that's a question with different answers, from different individuals.
Orochimaru looks very thoughtful and... slightly curious.
I also like how hair is casting most shadows over their faces. Very effectful.
Lastly... how would YOUR reaction be, if Orochimaru came up to Kabuto and gave him a hug?


Over all, sweet work! :clap:

Pretty sure that kabuto is still fighting itachi in his mind. that fight must feel like the longest thing ever for him right now. and i do think that kabuto will walk his own path, for many reasons. he will use the loophole and eventually escape the jutsu... i think orochimaru was like "thanks for holding that for me" lulz. and maybe "whooo kabuto. you had fun while i was gone"

and lulz i'd be surprised to say the least.
