-Naruto- Basketball Club by korilin -Naruto- Basketball Club by korilin
haha, submitting this for the Animerica contest, and since they asked for something original, what better than dressing the Naruto characters in modern day basketball clothes...?? ^^
Ahaha, full view if you want, although you'll see my horrible coloring up close if you do so...^^;
I'm glad that this is the first deviation I submit for the year 2005(not counting my screen shot) because I'm super proud of this one! ^^ If you noticed, this is my first piece with more than two people, kinda pathetic, huh? But I'm happy that I'm starting out the year strongly! =D

Why did I put these characters in such positions??
#4 - Shika as Captain and small forward because he is a genius, therefore able to handle the captain position.
#7 - Naru as point guard because he's too small to be anything else...^^; and he's got that trickster's face and attitude to do well as the point guard. he can also think of plans on the fly.
#10 - Kiba as center because he's presence is dominant enough for it and his style is the strong type. And because I didn't know who else to put there...^^;;
#11 - Sasuke fits the power forward position because he's so power-hungry and uses force to overpower his opponents.
#14 - Neji is perfect as a shooting guard because he has the accuracy and confidence needed for 3-pointers and such.

These numbers are the Slam Dunk Characters' numbers; #11 and #14 are perfect for Sasuke and Neji(see the resemblance to Rukawa and Mitsui??), and even though I would've put Naru as Sakuragi, he's just not tall enough. Shika would've been #7 and point guard, but I needed him as captain. And again, Kiba is just tossed in there as another guy, hehe...^^; *runs away from Kiba fans*

I really like how Kiba and Shika turned out though, but Neji is a bit boring, sorry Neji fans! =P

Uzumaki Naruto, Uchiha Sasuke, Nara Shikamaru, Hyuuga Neji, and Inuzuka Kiba (c) Kishimoto-san, who I worship for the awesome piece of art he has created.

Are you kidding? The color's superb! =O And it was done with colored pencils too. T__T *is jealous of your coloring skills*

I like Sasuke and Shikamaru in this the best. ^^ Hm, Sasuke looks a bit, um, what's the word... like he's nervous or something. O__o Like how he's looking out of the corner of his eye for something. o,o I don't know how to explain it, but it makes him look less intimidating than his usual serious self. ^^
