[Naruto Art] Moku Ink

doesn't look like i'm writing fast enough this week. -_-. so i figured i'd better pay my Beta in visual gratitude.

Moku Ink
By: Ken
Complete: 04.20.2011
Pairing: Yamato and Sai
Characters © Kishimoto Masashi
Warnings: Not Safe for Work (barest hint of nudity).

~ Critique with Aburame Shino ~

The kanji Sai is painting is 'ki' or 'moku'.


Because Yamato uses Mokuton no Jutsu which is 'Wood'.


'Ki' in Japanese means 'tree'.

Sai painting on Yamato technically makes 'nishiki-e'.

The artist, Ken, said that after he was done coloring he realized the page was pretty empty and thought to add some plant-life or, at least, a rug.


Settled on the framing lines.

When asked for something positive on the piece he said: i'm really pleased with how Yamato's hair turned out -- and that TJ likes it. i will not be negative today.

Ha - I don't think 'likes it' is quite strong enough. ^_^ I really really really likes it. Every time I look at it again I see new details. Like the wet-raised edge on the cross-stroke that looks like the paint was just barely laid down, and the careful blending of the shadows, and the depth and texture in their hair. So pretty - Yamato's almost looks alive.

I am very much visually gratified. ^_^ And also, hee. ^_^ Cheeky, indeed. XD
