KibaIno - Dressed to Kill? by nightambre KibaIno - Dressed to Kill? by nightambre
Because Ninjas flip out and kill people, even while wearing semi-formal attire.

I have no excuse, no explanation, or anything for this picture, save for the fact I wanted to draw these two in more traditional clothing. I guess it's the fact that they never have conventional dates sat there and influenced the sketch to be more action oriented. *The-Z mentioned something about roller derby.

Yes, the background's lame. I finished this thing with a killer headache and that always drops the creativity factor. I'm most pleased with the gradient on Ino's kimono. That was done fully by hand. *puffs up proudly*

... belatedly, I forgot to add a pattern on Ino's kimono. I might go back and fix that. Er, when I don't have this damn migraine.

Edit Finally got around to adding a pattern to Ino's kimono. I apparently managed to find a non-seamless pattern but, meh, you can only see it if you look for it. I like how it came out, regardless, though. Also, I redid Kiba's hakama to hopefully show more leg lift. I'm still not satisfied with it, but, it looks a little better than previous.

Ino, Kiba, from Naruto, by Kishimoto... even my disclaimers get lame...

Wow. >D Katsucon probably. I haven't attended an AMA yet. :3 I'll be there again this year, so maybe I'll see you around~

OMG! This is just so ironic. Me and a mate roleplayed as these two in a scene just like this with them in formal attire. This is awesomeness.

The picture and the coincidence I mean. ^_^

I Just Realized Something. Kiba would Make a Great Inuyasha ^_^

Yay! Ino and Kiba! My 2nd favorite Naruto couple!

I love the way Kiba looks. He makes brown hakamas yummy. I'm not so jazzed about Ino though... it isn't bad or anything... it just kind of doesn't look like her. -shrugs.- Just my opinion. I love it, though! -faves.-

The colors are lovely, though I don't know if the character positioning is exactly harmonious. This especially becomes a problem with Ino being in the brighter colors and being a hard diagonal right off the page. Interest is really dragged to the right side of the page with little to no balance on the left. It makes for a very uncomfortable composition. While it's still dynamic I believe doing something so small as raising Kiba's right leg while he's running-- and thus causing the hakama to fan out a bit more, may have helped. A background would be nice to see too, but I don't know if it'd neccessarily help fix the problem without drawing too much attention to itself.

Another thing you might want to consider is to give Ino a bit more color to her face--especially in the regions of her cheeks, lips, and nose. I realize that's part of your coloring style, but otherwise, she looks somewhat pale and plastic.

I think this is one of the first really good 'action' pics I've seen you do which pairs or single. In the future, you might want to give more thought to how things are positioned on a page, but otherwise, I think you're on the right track.

Thank you. :heart: I'll keep that in mind the next time I go to do something like that. It's a whole new territory with me, I think, action poses and all. Particularly since I didn't have any reference for either, and had to sort of do things by eye.

Do you know of any materials or what not that would be a bit more helpful in such things as what I need to work on, particularly in regards to what you pointed out in this picture? Outside of playing around with things more, I think having something I can regard and study might help me a bit more.

Thank you, again, though. :heart:

SO very nice... Dramatic composition, colours and action. two thumbs way up. <3
annwyd Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2005
I think this is one of your better Ino pictures (not that Kiba isn't great too). The poses in particular are just gorgeous; the sense of motion, and the juxtaposition of the two of them, is perfect.
