I love this picture!They look so happy and perfect together!I'd actually love to see the two get together in the manga...Temari is my favourite female character on Naruto and Shikamaru one of my favourites,too...So...there's still hope! Anyways, your gallery is really nice and I especially love this piece!
hola. looking at this again (it still looks great, I love it), I think that Shikamaru's head looks a little off. Not his head, but his forehead and hair line. I think it looks like he has a receding hair line, like when guys start to go balding. I think that you maybe need to change the angle of the hair line just a little bit because it looks like it goes back further on the right side of the picture than it does on the left side of the picture. If you need me to explain more or better, please tell me and I will try to reword it or show you what I mean by drawing on it a little bit. I think it's just the angle that you have him looking down at, his hair should be down a little further with his face. I hope that this makes sense to you. I love the picture so much though. I wish I had room in my new house to have a whole wall of your ShikaTema series. I'd love to have them all printed in order, and put them up all the way around the room, that'd be so sweet. Keep up the good work. I just love everything you do. You keep getting better and better.
I have seen a couple of artists do a progress piece where they show the year they started and some sample art from there, and then keep doing the same thing for each year from when they started to current. It's a really great way to see how much progress people have made with their artwork over the years. I'm not sure how many years you've been doing this, but, that would be really cool to see sometime if you have time to do it. And since the art is already done, you'd just have to take the time to crop it and put it together, which would probably take a lot less time than doing another piece. It would really be cool to see your progress from when you started to now in a big meme posting. Maybe someday when you get some free time huh? Don't take my critique too hard. I'm sure not many people will even think to notice it, it's not very noticeable, just something I saw when I looked at it, and you know I like to give you critiques not to pick on you, but just to make sure you do your best! I love your work so very much!!!
