Minato Namikaze: Simpler Days by behindinfinity Minato Namikaze: Simpler Days by behindinfinity
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.

:snowflake: special thanks to aliceandrabbitshop.com for my contact lenses (I'm using Crystal Max in blue)

I also used this image for a sort of "Yondaime Says" series of photos I want to do with some issues I wanted to address about cosplay :pointr: [link] (on Tumblr: [link])

Guh, drowning in Naruto feels nowadays. We've got a couple of shoots lined up that are a bit more elaborate than this! I hope you guys are somewhat updated in the manga, because one of the shoots is kiiiiind of a spoiler! A little preview :pointr: [link]
