Sabaku no Gaara by KejaBlank Sabaku no Gaara by KejaBlank
:heart::heart::heart:Gaara is one of the characters, I also love very much! :heart::heart::heart:
He has something unique, his character is a very evil one in the beginning, but he changed a lot during the story and even became one of the best friends of Naruto. I tried to give him the features, I think which would suit him. He is a dangerous person .... I wanted to create him as someone, who is respected at first sight because of this gaze. In my imagination I compare his character with the leader of a ghetto gang in a big city. Dangerous, nasty and fared - therefore respected. Because he is no model, he has some kind of nasty features. I also love his eyes - half human and half not-from-this-world. He has something of a gothic guy and the combination between red hair and green eys always fascinates me. The first time, I fall in love with this combination was when I saw the Disney movie ARIELLE THE MERMAID.;-)

I hope, you like my version of Gaara!

EDIT: For I forgot, that his Kanji "love" on his forehead is no tattoo, but actually a self-carved sign (scar), I edited this.

There was another one that looks kinda like this one, in my opinion, the other one is a accurate Japanese Gaara, this one is more like if he wasn't Japanese but American. I love it! American Gaara.

I dunno, if this is typical american ... I thought more about Caucasian .... Originally all characters of Naruto are drawn in Japan, but the most haracters does not look like Japanese. So it is a lot different, when it comes to RL.

I was just saying that he looks American and not Japanese. I know they are Japanese lol. I feel like if Naruto was Americanized then this is how he'd look.

It is interesting, that I got many feedbacks like that. I guess the people are used to see it Japanese because it is a Japanese manga of a japanese creator and author. But nearly no character in mangas have slit eyes. They have big eyes the most times (normal in mangas). And in Naruto there are all kind of eye shapes, hair styles characters, heights and different ways to life. They live in different areas and so my conclusion is, that they are not all Japanese. Otherwise all must be a little bit smaller, all must have dark eyes and dark hair or dyed hair and must have - of course - the obligatory slit eyes.For this reason it is just a subjectice view on that topic.

The only thing, what is quite Japanese, is the habits and the culture. My assumption is, that when a creator lives in a country with customs and culture and a certain way of life, he kind of adapt it to the comic/manga. For Naruto is a created world and no real life Japanese city, it creates just the impression of beeing Japanese because of the martial arts and the habits.
Interesting is, that I never questioned the manga DEATHNOTE for being all Japanese, because the area of acting IS Japan and real life cities.
One of the first Animes was HEIDI. And HEIDI plays part in an European setting and is not Japanese at all. It mostly depends on which kind of research the author wants to make or if it is that relevant for the story.
Naruto is a created world, therefore in my opinion not really typical Japanese at all. But it is just my opinion. I try to have a wider view on the whole "creation", not just what I think what is best. I hope it is understandable, what I wrote. ;-)
I just try to nail the CHARACTER of a person in a portrait, the nationality plays not soooo important role in this.

I agree. I think that they are different nationalities. For instance there are some blacks in Naruto and they aren't Japanese. Shikamaru and choji look Japanese. Gaara looks kinda Korean to me or Japanese...deffinately one of those two...idk lol. I love the Naruto world though. It kinda looks like a map I've seen in rl.

Normal would be "Sabaku No Gaara". In Germany the translation always is first name and last name. I also thought about that before uploading. Maybe I change it! Thank you.
