-Friendship- by nocturnalMoTH -Friendship- by nocturnalMoTH
Lee and Gaara as toddlers :)

I used this image as a reference.
The drawing is a bit rushed because I'm a very very very impatient person when it comes to coloring - I never do my best because my best requires a helluva lot of time and I just don't have the time or patience to do it, so mostly everything I do is rushed. I think I've "done my best" on two drawings in my entire gallery - and obviously this is not one of them :p
but anyway, I hope you like this despite the crappy shading, the odd ear, lack of three-dimensionality, etc etc.. ;P

It's so cute! I really loved this one, if they'd been friends from toddler years, things would've gone a lot more smooth and there would be more friendship and love for Gaara :-3

LOL Lawd at first I thought it was Chobi and Shiki...idk why i guess cause in my head i always see em as "destined to be friends" and whatnot from their team and family thing going on. But this is even better, seeing little Gaara being loved...by Rocky...oh goodness...I don't think I could handle tht kid in those days if I was a naruto character. lmao

Hvis du noen gang kommer til å gjøre mer på bilde så kanskje du kunne gjort ringene rundt øynene til Gaara lit mørkere og kanskje lagt til symbolet i pannen hannes? Men fremdeles, fantastiskt bra tegnet. Kunne aldri klart å tegne noe sånt på photoshop xD

Very nice! I agree that it kinda lacks 3-dimensionality, but only on Gaara's forehead. But you say this is rushed, so wow! I love it! :D

I reaaaally love this (Gaara and Lee, mwee! So very cute. >W<;) But somehow Gaara looks... naked... without "AI" tattoo'd to his forehead. xD I know he doesn't get it until he's a little older, but it still looks... very different. Not in a totally bad way, just different!
