Naruto - Creatures by Chelsee Naruto - Creatures by Chelsee
Yay; another piece of art involving Naruto actually acting like a ninja. There's never enough of it out there.

Lyric excerps from the song Creatures (For A While) by 311. Since before I ever joined DA, or even before I started doing my own Naruto fanart, whenever I would hear this song I could only imagine Naruto singing it.

*shrugs* If for no other reason than that, I would recommend hearing it.

Full Lyrics:

My name is volatile
Iíve been that way a long while
Iíd surely like to rest
But the energy gets the best of me
Itís been a wild ride
I wouldnít change a minute
I canít slow down inside
Guess thatís why I live it

The years of mischief
Followed by weeks of thrift
I land on earthís hard face
No legs could keep this pace
And through the rest I sift

Is there ever a time?
When the state of sleeping willingly leaves my mind

Highly frustrated wanna feel elated
Come monday morn you fell checkmated
You can be uncool and become the rule
Exceptions were made to drown

Iím not used to it, youíd think Iíd be by now
The ins the outs the ups and the downs

I wanna make a mess
I wanna blow off stress
I wanna stoke the fire
Just creatures for a while

It comes and goes and comes and goes

Sometimes I go a little crazy
Sometimes I go a little crazy just like you I do

I know what you weíre gonna say
But were afraid to cause dismay
Youíre lyrics switched around
The mixture watered down
And now a pointless display

Itís something one wonít understand
Unless there in it with me hand and hand

Donít buy the fear donít buy that my dear
The things you love you must keep near and
Carry on and you wonít feel withdrawn
Even if youíre coming down

Sometimes itís wearable sometimes is bearable
I careen towards balance tilí the glass is full

I wanna make a mess
I wanna blow off stress
I wanna stoke the fire
Just creatures for a while

It comes and goes and comes and goes

Sometimes I go a little crazy
Sometimes I go a little crazy just like you I do
Sometimes I go a little crazy
Sometimes I go a little crazy just like you I do

Krad, that looks like it actually has paint on it... I'm just wondering, but what disqualifies it from the "Paintings and Airbrushings" section of "Digital Art"?

Awesome drawing.

I love this. Very rarely does Naruto act like a ninja, as you mentioned. (Or maybe we just don't see it.) The lyrics fit him quite well. Now I wanna hear the soooonggg...

EXCELLENT body angle!! I love how parts of the outline aren't completely solid, allowing the colors to peek through.

Why did this only get 13 faves? This is one of the best Naruto fanarts I've ever seen, inside or outside of DA. The colors, the background, the pose, the expression, it's all simply perfect. You're definitely one of my top 3 favorite DA artists.

The poses that you come up with always amaze me! The extreme forshortening adds so much motion and makes this piece dynamic. I like the fact that you drew him a bit to the side, like we're watching him, or actually narrarating whats going on with the lyrics at the top. If it were drawn face on it would have a much more threatening and aggressive feel to it. *envies your talent* The coloring is just wonderful, I can't get over those clouds in the back! ...and of course, the hands and the feet! One of my fav parts about your style is your ability to draw hands and feet so beautifully detailed! Excellent work! I :heart: you and your crazy awesome talent :D

Fantastic. This monitor is such crap that I cannot see it really properly, but I'm loving what I can make out. The bit of vertigo from the angle and the detail of the trees and field below add an awesome sense of depth to the concept. I wish I was in a better mood so to describe what I like about this better, but I think I'll just end the comment here and stare at it for a while.

Wow, this is digital? It almost looks like there could be colored pencil in there. And the BG looks like a painting. Beauty composition :D I'm feeling it... totally.

The background was CG (Painter 7) as is the coloring, but the actual figure was a pencil-drawing ^_~. (More mechanical pencil on computer paper...)

Wow, Naruto does really look like a ninja in this! It is very awosme, that it is. He looks like a cat slinking around. His animal side is so intriguing, and so wild. That song truly does fit Naruto 110%!
