This was a pretty cool request. To my recollection, I don't think I've ever drawn a manga character before. I tried drawing a some Street Fighter characters long ago but not like this. I've never really followed Naruto, so I'm not sure what it's all about but when it came up among the list of requests, I just had to do it. Except I wanted to do something a little different with this character. I kinda wondered how he would look a bit older...maybe as a teen/young adult. I mean, we artists all gotta experiment sometime, right? Anyhoo...enjoy!
