this is based off & inspired by @indigonite ‘s demigods one. Like same poses and everything. When I saw it I couldn’t help but see the flash family so I had to do it. I also added Wally & Linda’s twins peering in. And Barry made a Batsignal Flashsignal. Please check out the original, Indigonite’s art is amazinggggg. wally was the hardest and i still think he looks weird.
i started this art blog so i could have a place separate from my regular blog stuff to put art and possibly take commissions from, but i haven’t made digital art in a while tbh. so to get back on track with this, i’m gonna try to post something every few days, even if its a dumb 1 hour sketch like this is.
I’m starting with this guy bc i been thinking about the dragon boi recently. cartoons these days are missing out on the dragon warlord type i need in my life
• gaara grew up closed off, bitter, cold, and volatile (much like sasuke and neji, except he was more inclined to homicidal urges). he grew up extremely alone, like naruto, with a family and village that hated and feared him, a father that put the cause of all his problems inside him, and the one person who treated him with kindness brutally and confusingly betraying him. while naruto turned his loneliness into a determination to be acknowledged by his village, gaara became convinced that his only purpose in life, the only thing that gave him worth, was to kill. with no reason to believe he was anything more than a killing machine at such a young age, he grew up continuing to believe that was all he was.
• naruto, as he did with many others, inspired and changed gaara’s life. he showed gaara that he had worth and that he could fill the void in his heart by protecting others. from naruto, gaara worked hard to become Kazekage and to earn the trust and respect of his village. naruto and gaara’s friendship is so good because they become inspirations to each other so that despite how they were treated and their insecurities and fears, they could make something of themselves. naruto, seeing gaara as Kazekage, is jealous but mostly extremely proud. gaara making it is only proof that he can as well.
• naruto and gaara are really the only ones who truly understand each other. this leads to a friendship that transcends everything else…time or space doesn’t matter, when one of them needs the other, they will arrive, because the survival of one is confirmation of the validity of their existence. one of their successes is both of their successes; they need to affirm their existence through the survival of the other.
• not to be emo, but they really changed each other for the better….they evoke so many emotions in each other because they are parallels who finally met….
