Here's something pretty simple for now — a portrait as Minato Namikaze, the person behind the title of Yondaime or Fourth Hokage.
The mystery of his character was one of the things that greatly intrigued me when I started getting into Naruto way back. I'm glad that much has been revealed about him now. I particularly liked when they showed how he and Kushina/Naruto's mom met, and the tragic story of that day in Konoha that changed so many lives forever. (Naruto Shippuuden episodes 246 to 249, if you want to check it out.)
So yeah, I guess I wanted a simple portrait depicting Minato before all that: A quiet, kind guy who used to just stand in the background but learned to be strong by finding the person he wanted to protect no matter what.
