Second Place - Naruto by duneboo Second Place - Naruto by duneboo
So I was inspired to do this peice after reading a few SakuSasu fanficts where Naruto always seems to be neglected by Sakura and also, episode 98 when Sakura runs to Sasuke. It just seems like she'll never have any room in her heart for Naruto. Kinda sad...but it's up to you how you interpret this pic. The way I see it, is she is looking past him, even when she allows him to be close to her, but keeps her arm out to create some distance between them. So yeah. ;P

I :heart: Naruto. ;_;

Did the lines in Painter with my tablet, and the coloring in Photoshop 7.

it's like sakura loves sasuke and naruto finally realized that he should stop loving her so much and get over it

from information i have gathered...and from lots of research...i've gathered that even though later on (much laer on) in the series she cares deeply about sasuke...she might actually be falling in love with Naruto. Of course that's only a strong hunch cause of some sources that did not give me every detail...-cry-

This is so pretty. it looks like Naruto's trying to get close by putting his head to her, but his eyes seem glazed, like he knows its not going to do anything.. Sad ;-;

Great pick, I like it, and the way Sakura looks annoyed at naruto, and the arm as you said, is a great show of it, but Naruto looks more angry than sad, perhaps try changing that. Naruto simply...doesn't seem like he could be angry at Sakura. He's not the type to really get jealous, at least not in a angry way. When Sasuke's in the hospital, and Sakura is taking care of him, Naruto shows just how mature and understanding he truly is. If you draw another pic like this, try to change his eyes to seem softer. Nice though, definately worth a second, third, and fifth glance (but not the fourth, that one was for finding the comment box)

Well, similarly, Sasuke is never going to have room in his heart for Sakura either.
Sakura needs to realize this and get over Sasuke.

I personally wouldn't mind seeing Lee end up with Sakura.
Poor Naruto. I'm sure there's someone out there for him. *Points to Hinata*
...*thinks a bit more, points to Sasuke and giggles like a crazed shonen-ai fangirl* :giggle:

Lovely picture. I especially love their facial expressions and the poses. There is so much emotion conveyed in this picture.

Even without the description, I can see Sakura's complete lack of regard here-- even to the point of annoyance. That arm between them is a good indication. Poor Naruto. You can just see he's hurt and annoyed at that undeserved scorn.

*sniff* Its just too sad. I feel bad when I draw him so unhappy, its such a change from his normal, hyperactive self. Theres just soooo much to his personality, he's got all these different emotions and sides to him. I know Sakura loves Sasuke, and that makes sense to me, but it is still so crappy to think about how much it hurts him to not be acknowledged by someone he cares about. *sigh* But I guess thats life...

:heart: Thanks for the +fav. ^^

It actually makes my heart ache to see Naruto down-- and especially because of Sakura. She's really merciless, the way she turns him down cold sometimes, but they again, she gets the same treatment from Sasuke, so I wonder if she's not emulating that. Sakura's really not a mean person at heart ^^ Or else I don't think Naruto would be so attracted to her.

She's just rarely herself.

I think if/when Sakura relaxes around Naruto, we get a better peek at the real Sakura. In the meantime, poor Naruto is just mistreated by someone he cares so deeply for.

However, he COULD notice Hinata once in a while. Geebus. *baps the spaznin*

Same here, but he still has such a strong attatchment to her after she has turned him down so many times...which is pretty much exactly like Sasuke does to Sakura. Ohhhh the drama!

I totally agree, I think theres a lot more to Sakura than we give her credit for. And she doesn't necessarily have to 'love' Naruto in that way, I just want her to acknowledge him. I feel like Sakura and Sasuke are much more fitting for each other (atleast thats what I like to think) if Sasuke would just stop being a jerk and gets over himself. ;P If only all the characters would do what we want! But its all in the mercy of the man in charge. ^^

Agreed, she should realize what a great guy he is, I hate how he never gets credit for how hard he has trained and fought. Hehe, yeah, if only Sasuke wasn't such a hottie, then maybe Naruto would stand a chance. ;P

*hugs ya tightly!* You know, you need to get yourself up on SheezyArt, there are quite a few of DA naruto fanartists from here there. It might be a smaller community, but it's so much more friendly. Even MDY and the Z is there (massive destructive... too long to type). Well I'm just inviting ya, it's a very openminded and fun place.
