Gaara of the Sand by T-f Gaara of the Sand by T-f
Okay, so I was sitting in my room, thinking of the stuff I've done so far. When I got down to it, all of my stuff was comical drawings that looked very cartoonish. I had the jones to something cool and....not so silly.

So I decided to manipulate a stock photo. This one was provided by Thanks!

I also downloaded a texture for the cracked edges from Thank you, too.

And also to for the blood brushes. I was too frickin lazy to spend hours painting blood on him, so thanks to you, too.

Anyway, this is supposed to kinda look like Gaara from Naruto. As if that would surprise anyone. XP Hope you all like!

Worked on this for 3 1/2 hours on photoshop cs.
Naruto is copyrighted to Kishimoto.

Amazing.

It really is.

I love the mixture of his blood and the sand. Gaara is such a complex and tortured character. You did a very good job.

Very good- It's quite expressive, me likie XD -my only comment is it probably would look more like him if he had spiky hair... though probably couldn't be helped anyway if u just used a stock photo. Other then that, I love the colours and cracked skin effect *thumbs up!* :D

I was wondering, how did you make the sand like that, I'm working on something and I need help with the sand! Oh, here's my evaluation on the pic -->

First, I just painted where I wanted the sand to be with a soft round brush, and I shaded and highlighted accordingly. Then, I went to filter>texture>grain. I lowered the intensity so that there aren't all the bright colors in it.

Whoa! Great 3d rendering of Gaara!

The only gripe is that his face is hard to see.
Reply
:icont-f:
T-f Featured By Owner May 10, 2007
That would be because in the stock photo, his face is hidden. XD

Ah that explains it.

But it got me thinking..

What would a live action naruto series look like (with Hollywood special effects)

Either really cool or really sad. Depends on who's directing it and the cast and stuff....
