Bounty Hunter of Akatsuki by Lee-nus Bounty Hunter of Akatsuki by Lee-nus
finally done! :D

i put a lot of effort and time into this, compared to what i usually do, and i do believe it shows. at least, i've never been so content with another fanart i've made, and i do like it! ^^

there are several major differences from the previously submitted WIP. the lineart has been completely removed, i worked a lot on the forehead protector, i re-added the smoke (that i first had, but then removed from the WIP), shading has been improved in places and so on! so, i really hope you will like this!

please comment! favs are welcome too... :D

oh, and if you for some reason would be interested in the old version it can be found here [link]

Wow ! It's awesome ! The only two problems is see is that the nose is too small and Kakuzu's eyes are green. But it's a really nice coloring !

lol, yeah. everyone went ballistic and thought he was so bad cuz he's destructive fundamentalist or whatever, but i stuck with believing kakuzu was the real bad dude, cuz he was just ice cold in the background... :D

ScarcrowKoibito Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2006
Oh yes Kakuzuīs just freaking hot. Heīs the protecting-thinking part LOLz
But I defintily love the way both work together, because it wasnīt like any akatsuki-team had a teamattack °_° Itachi and Kisame were more like Dog and Owner XD And Sasori Deidara just hated each other.

ooo, that's awesome! may i inquire how you do it? there's nothing left of that lineart in this version, but i probably would never have been able to make it like this without it. the size and quality (which was also superb) is vital to a colorist, you know! ^^

yeliel Featured By Owner Oct 26, 2006
Well, it's mostly by using vector drawing programs like Illustrator or Inkscape. Then just cleaning the huge thingy in PSCS2 ;) I might post a tutorial when I get the new comp.

Uhm, it does look sweet, but I'm not the one who did that lineart. I think it's Amandas, and her you can now find at [link]...
