Real men wear nail polish... by MerianMoriarty Real men wear nail polish... by MerianMoriarty
so. i was thinking about the Akatsuki, and how badass they all are. and i was thinking about how they all paint their nails blue.

and then i wondered if they paint their toenails, too. XD

in my head, Kisame is in the background with a giant sweatdrop and a 'wtf?!' look on his face...X3

on the technical side of things -- as you can see, strathmore drawing paper is cream-colored and has a light but consistent texture. it seems to resist smudges pretty well, unless i erase too much. it's entirely possible that itachi's feet are different sizes....but feet are hard to draw, so cut me some slack, eh? ^^;


EDIT
this piece is much nicer in FULLVIEW. hint hint, nudge nudge. please, if you like me, fullview.

UPDATE: April 2005
YES! episode 81 of the anime confirms it -- itachi paints his toenails, bwahahaha.

yeah, so Uchiha Itachi is Kishimoto. i wonder what shade that nail polish is? hm...

all the pretty villians in naruto paint their nails. (unless they're under cover).
I love this picture! ^.^
Everything looks wonderful and you can't really tell that the feet are different sizes unless you're looking for it. (at least I wouldn't have caught it if you hadn't said anything ^.^)

I like the feet. Well drawn. The look of intensity on his face is slightly distrubing considering he's painting his toenails... :smile:

i figured that itachi would be super-focused on just about anything he does. and it's hard work to paint your nails perfectly! =D
