NARUTO: (Our Roles Could Have Been Reversed) by Creative2Bit NARUTO: (Our Roles Could Have Been Reversed) by Creative2Bit
"You know Sasuke. You and I, our roles could have been reversed"

Had a real fun drawing this picture, after finishing Naruto Storm 3, I've always wanted to draw this picture, and so here its is. ^^

Hope you guys like it.

If you do please fave it and add me to your watchers for more awesome work^^.

What caught my eyes to this drawing was the meaning it has, not only for me, but for every Naruto fan.
The title made the artwork complete and unique. I love to see pics from stories named as a phrase mentioned by the charecter. It gives such a powerful meaning to the piece and also makes people feel what you wanted to give and show through the image.

The details of making Naruto the one choosen by Orochimaru and his eyes swithched by Kurama's gave the final touch that Naruto is a "bad guy" and is using his powers for bad issues.
Sasuke is looking confident and definitely looks like the hero of the story.

The colors choise was perfect and everything in this pic fit perfectly

There's no better way to represent the sentence of the title than your drawing!
It's great!

(my first critique, so I didn't know exactly what to say. I just put my feeling towards this drawing into words ^^' )

Time for another critique, C2B XD

Alright, so there's not a whole lot I can say that won't mirror what Cacah05 has already said as far as the colors and the impact go.

What I can say is that I really enjoy the attention to detail in Sasuke's Mangekyou Sharingan. For the sheer size of the image itself with the relatively small aspect of his eyes, you hit the nail on the head with the detail for the Mangekyou.

I really like the way you took Kishimoto's style as reference but still managed to make your own style with what you had. That's a very nice touch.

Proportions are spot on, which I really enjoy seeing. Everything looks like it would be put in the anime as well ^^

The snake is a very nice touch, as is Susano'o. Naruto using a snake ability the way Sasuke did during the fight with Itachi is definitely something to imagine. If it wasn't for the fact that ALL Sharingan are red, it'd be cool to have Sasuke's Mangekyou a blue color to match the Susano'o ^^

I like the Curse Mark on Naruto's shoulder as well. While only half of it is actually visible, you can easily make out the tomoe associated with it (I believe it's the Earth Curse Mark, but it's been a while since I read about the difference between the Heaven and Earth Curse Marks that Orochimaru planted on his "vessels").

The color palette is also very pleasing, with Naruto's Kyuubi chakra burning red and Sasuke's Susano'o glowing blue. One thing I might suggest is having a blending area for where they overlap in the piece; have it transition between red, purple (probably a deep purple) and blue as it shifts from left to right.

And finally, I have to repeat what Cacah05 said about what the message actually means. True Naruto fans respect and read into what Naruto meant by that when he and Sasuke fought at the samurai bridge. It means a LOT to have to tell your best friend who betrayed you that it could have easily been the other way around. It also shows how much Naruto actually cares about Sasuke; remember that Sasuke is like a brother to Naruto.

Anyway, that's all I've got right now. I know it's been a while since this was submitted, but I saw it and had to critique it ^^'

Naruto with the Snake/dragon sage mode...DAYUUUUM
The story would have an interesting twist if this happenned, I mean, for the first time, the Asura reincarnation would be the "bad" one, and likewise, the Indra reincarnation would be the first "good" one.

I love how you have the snake around Naruto to represent him as Sasuke. It would have been intresting to see what there life would have been like if there roles were reversed. I would however liked to have seen Kyuubi in the background of the Sasuke picture. Well done on this peace.

I love this picture. Also, I love the colors that were used in this art work.
For some reason, I can not imagine Sasuke being the "hero."
