Itachi and Sasuke: Always by behindinfinity Itachi and Sasuke: Always by behindinfinity
"Your big brother's here to protect you, no matter what happens."

Because this is how we deal with our manga feelings. SHINRA TENSEI TO THE KOKORO

Last week, I was able to do an Uchiha brothers shoot with a special little guy.

One of the relationships in Naruto that really digs at my heart with a spoon is the brotherly bond between Itachi and Sasuke. We wanted to do a shoot that explores what they might have been like before the incident — those happier days we barely got to see in the manga and anime.

ArtistKev14 Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Normally I don't favorite cosplay deviations... but I saw this photo and this one actually moved my heart. As a brother myself, I could always relate to the brotherly relationships in Naruto. Ironically the one that has the most impact on me is the one between Sasuke and Itatchi. Now I don't have a bond like that with my actual older brother (in fact my feelings for him actually reflects Sasuke's bitterness for Itatchi after the whole Uchiha thing... long personal story) but I have a pretty close bond with my twin, Devin. It sucks to see how warfare and conspiracies devastated this intense bond but it's touching once the reader discovers Itatchi's ulterior motive.

You two pretty much captured their happier days in this photo and as I said I usually don't favorite cosplay deviations, but after seeing this, reading your description I had to favorite this. They say a picture can tell a thousand words, but this one doesn't need any words to draw the emotion out of the viewer (even me) and by "special little guy" I'm assuming that dude has a similar bond with you and to pull something as moving as this with someone like that makes the piece even more powerful. As I always say art will have more of an impact if the artists involved pours their soul into the piece and you guys did a splendid job. Great job and keep up the great work. =D

Thank you for the insightful comment, I deeply appreciate it :thanks:

I totally understand that sometimes circumstances lead to some siblings not having the best of relationships, but you are very lucky to have such a strong bond with your twin :)

And indeed, Itachi was a victim of matters far beyond his control, and it breaks my heart how much he had sacrificed out of love. And yet, things didn't quite work out as he had planned. Though with the more recent developments, things may be better than he had wished. At least he and Sasuke were able to speak each other again, with complete honesty, and he was able to let his little brother know how much he is loved.

Thank you so much for the appreciation for all we've done. I am glad our feelings were able to reach someone :)

No prob man. As a brother, anything that involves brotherly love usually leaves some sort of impact of me... especially as something as touching as your photo.

Yeah... I still love my older bro but he's given my Mom enough misery, and what he recently did totally strained our relationship. I never really got close with him when I was younger. It wasn't his fault though, we were always apart. It tried building a close bond with him, but he always seemed so busy. Eh no big, one day in the future those circumstances will flip and we'll talk but as of now the only sibling I really have that bond with is my twin, mainly because we grew up together and experienced a lifetime together in such a short time and I look to see where our futures will lead too.

Yeah Itachi's story is very interesting. I always had a feeling there was some ulterior motive because he never came across as a evil sadistic character. I mean he was the one who slaughtered his own clan and after the Konoha Invasion Arc when he returned to the village, he was portrayed in a very different light. The reader would think someone as powerful as him would've just finished the job and sought out Sasuke to kill him. Even when Sasuke tried to exact vengeance he just tried to avoid the whole thing. He had every opportunity to just finish him off in their first showdown but he didn't so that goes to show his love for his little brother.

Yeah I agree the recent developments really fulfilled Itatchi's wishes although there were steep consequences in the end. Yeah it was touching that Itatchi and Sasuke were able to be honest with themselves not as cold hearted, merciless killers, callous hardnend war torn shinobi, but as the warm, affectionate brothers they knew each other as. After the whole Uchiha incident, Sasuke lost every bond he held dear, but the gut wrenching fact that he his bond with his older brother became warped and twisted due to the conspiracies and war just destroyed him and as you said when they were able to talk as brothers in complete honesty, that finally restored their bond.

So yeah, I applied how I feel about my own twin brother and the story between Sasuke and Itachi when I saw your picture and after reading your description about who you did it with; those were pretty much my reasons why I like your picture and why I find it so touching. As I said before, art and literature that really tugs at the viewer's heart and especially if they can apply it to their own life really leaves an impact and really makes art and literature worthwhile in this world so yeah you guys be sure to keep up what you're doing. Again great job.
