Team-mates are not furniture by nightambre Team-mates are not furniture by nightambre
Someone should really notify Shikamaru of this fact.

This was code-named Spawn of Satan when I was coloring it. I liked the line art, but I got really tired of the coloring. I need to fix things, but, honestly, this might be the last time I work on it. And since I /did/ like the line art, I figured I'd upload before I deleted the thing.

Also, it's Shikamaru's birthday, and Ino's is a day after, and can't be a fan of those two without having some art with 'em. Or something, right?

Maybe it's the swollen foot talking.

Time taken: WAY TOO DAMN LONG.
Done on OC.
Nara Shikamaru and Yamanaka Ino from Naruto.

*Enter Inoichi*

Ino: Uhhh... *super loud* Hi Daddy! I swear, this isn't what it looks like! *super-smiley ^_^*

Shika: *groans* Ino, do you have to make so much noise? Troublesome woman...

*Shika-poundage via Daddy's Wrath no Jutsu. Poor Shika*


I couldn't help it! Ino just looks like a deer in the headlights, so someone must have come across them. Might as well have been "Daddy" ^_^

I really like the hair, especially Shikamaru's. It looks nice and smooth. The flower is nice, and Ino's expression is cute, considering. Nice work!

wow OO i feel bad I didn't get a chance to comment on more of your artwork >< *flips off her busy school schedule >< curses!* I LOVE this OO I love the expressions the best... Ino's expression is priceless while Shikamaru's is so just like him >< it doesn't really seem to bother him at all that it's making her so unconfortable ^^ I LOVE the coloring OO I admire you for that ^^ the softness is so soothing... I really love her hair color and Shikamaru with his hair down is so SEXY infact OO they both look very sexy... so beautiful >< WAI! I MUST :+fav: this OO and now I need to ink in the Ino chibi I drew today ^^; it's so small... I hope it'll look okay and I'm gonna dedicate it to you ^^ AND even color it! that's a miracle in itself I think... but ^_^ I still have a non chibi pic I drew for you too! heheheh I need to ink it >< *hugs!* I LOVE this picture OO

celticangel Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2004
That's surprisingly similar to what I had in mind for the ShikIno peice I still owe you. ^_^

I love Ino's expression.

Love it, it's finally done and I can finally enjoy it. Your effort is noticeable and your muscle tone shading on the skin and Shika's shirt is awesome. *nuzzles ya*

Ino: WTFmate?

I like Shika better with his hair down. :3 But I have a known weakness for long hair.
nightambre Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2004  Hobbyist General Artist
What's funny about Shika's hair is, I left it down because I was too lazy to draw it in that stupid ponytail.

Yet I spent 3 hours looking up flower references and meanings (Yes, that thing in the pot actually has a meaning).

Can you smell the irony? :3
farli Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2004  Hobbyist
*hees* Finally done! And I still love the shading on this thing, along with their mutual expressions. XD The EvilPicture is complete, and well worth the time spent on it. :D
nightambre Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2004  Hobbyist General Artist

Now that it's finished I can /almost/ look at it without going rabid, so, hopefully in a few days I might actually like it. >D;

Oh, you should thank :defLillian-hime: for the suggestion on the wall. :3

You can really see the effort that went into this. I love the hands and the arms, not to mention Ino's expression. ^_^d
