Homicidal Psycho Ninja Fox by behindinfinity Homicidal Psycho Ninja Fox by behindinfinity
Here's part two of my Naruto and Kurama portraits! This time I've drawn them in the style of Calvin and Hobbes! The title is also a reference to one of the Calvin and Hobbes books — Homicidal Psycho Jungle Cat

Naruto and Kurama Best Bromodachis Forever fan art series:


:target: These three and more are available in my new print store :pointr: [link]
I could sign them if you want, and I ship worldwide!

:target: This is series is also now available as shirts on my Society6 page! You can choose whatever background color you want! :pointr: Art shirts by Jin on Society6


:bulletred: A little backstory:

This might look familiar to some of you because it's actually my second time attempting this piece! I did the first way back in 2005, and I was just a kid who had just learned to tinker around with Photoshop, hahah! The end product was this :pointr: [link]

I even submitted that here on dA back then, but it had to be taken down because I had only drawn over an image of Calvin and Hobbes after all. Somehow it made its rounds on the internet, though! I saw it going around on a lot of different sites and on people's forum signatures and stuff. I didn't watermark my work then, so nobody knew of the source, hahah.

I've improved my skills a lot since then and decided to give this piece another shot! And properly this time! I drew the whole thing from scratch, and painted it with watercolor like Bill Watterson's work. (Figuring out how to position all nine tails was a challenge yet again!)


:bulletred: About this painting:

This is part of my series of drawings of Naruto and Kurama as other iconic human and animal companion pairs, and for this stage of Naruto's life I chose Calvin and Hobbes.

It's partly because this is where the idea started (the backstory I wrote above) and because I think about times when Calvin and Hobbes don't get along, hahah. Hobbes occasionally attacks Calvin when he gets home from school, or tries to take over as club leader, and is nice to Calvin's arch-enemy, Susie. Still, when you got down to it, Hobbes was still Calvin's loyal companion. During Naruto's life as an academy student, the Kyuubi was far from being his friend, but it would lend him power and saved him when he was in grave danger.

Read more about my process for this piece on my art blog! :pointr: [link]

Based on this alone, I would like to see a "Calvin & Hobbes" style Naruto doujin made by you.

I've read the Calvin & Hobbes comics, and I've taken a liking to them. These two actually fit the roles very nicely.

All hail before your work, the inspirations of my days.
I will bring your latest works to my exam. They just make me feel better (lol) and maybe, if the teacher sees it ,she will give me a better grade :D ^^. (fingers crossed)
I dunno but could you try it with a Garfield perspective , that would be awesome :D.

Not as big a fan of Naruto as I used to be...
Still like it though. And I LOVE Calvin & Hobbes and Bill Watterson.
You've married the two together perfectly!

So, it only makes sense for me fave this!

Aww, though I am a bit older now, I am still a great fan of Calvin&Hobbes stories. They're full of philosophical ideas and the hilarity of everyday.

I feel like your previous portrayal was much more anime oriented, while this one really sticks to Bill Watterson's style a lot more.

Loving the mini series. I think it's a lovely idea, looking forward to see more :)

This is plenty sweet! Haven't watched Naruto or read it (please don't hit me), but I can more or less understand the relatinoship between Naruto and the nine-tailed fox.
