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.

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)
