Anubis Gaara v2 by wredwrat Anubis Gaara v2 by wredwrat
EDIT: Ok, the bumblebee thing was getting to me.. so I edited the pic a bit. Quite a few people were also wondering what the funny thing across his mouth was, it's uh.. it's.. a.. um.. heheh I'm not too sure either. ^^; A bit? =p Anyway, I took it off, you can see the whole of his face now. Happy?
I hope he's looking less Marilyn-Manson-ey.

The original pic is here.

===

A be-earlied birthday present for my friend Fei. She likes Gaara. ;)

Gaara = sand + death = desert = Anubis = Egyptian god of death. Does that make sense? :D Oh well, trying something different.

Argh, now that I look at it again, Gaara here reminds me of a bumblebee! Ahhhh!!!! Must be his leg-things and all that dang yellow.

Painter 6.

Gaara from Naruto © Masashi Kishimoto.

Perfectly!! :nod: I mean Anubis is the egyptian god of death and gaara likes death. So put two and two together! This is so awsome!! :w00t!:

Anubis also is in charge of taking the dead to be judged.. [like a shinigami..] :D I know this cuz i use to read a bunch of books on the egyptian gods. I don't know why but im faninated by different mythologes of diffrent cultures..

Nice job!!! :hug:

All hail Anubis Gaara!! :worship: :worship: :worship: :worship: :worship: :worship: :worship:

sorry about that.. ^^; I can get weird sometimes.. :D

I've got to add another "OMG COOL!" to the sixty-some-odd you already have. XD So, here goes:

I have to say, this looks pretty darn awesome. I really like how you shaded his skin, and added such form to the gourd. Also, he still looks like Gaara- I find that when costume changes are done, the character's identity kind of disappears, but you've kept it. And, he looks pretty damn good. *wink*

Glad to see another awesome piece from you. <3

Augh, I never comment on time! I guess it’s because I want to make sure I have enough time to study the work and put it all down, but still…

And I digress before even starting. Anyway, I’ve been a fan of Egyptian mythology even longer than I’ve liked anime, so this really gave me the “it’s-so-cool” shivers. I never made the connection between Gaara and Anubis, but it really does work very well. Even the way the cloth drapes around him echoes the clothes he wears in the canon anime/manga, but it also looks very Egyptian and the Anubis mask also looks very ANBU, which amused me greatly. Everything here works together to make a very intimidating (and almost violent, even in its stillness) image. Gaara’s hand propping up his gourd is almost claw-like, and the thin trails of blood seep down the rock beneath his sandal like fissures. Ooh, and the way the blood covers almost the entire ground…it makes me wonder whether it’s a thin layer spread over hard ground, or if Gaara’s merely standing on the surface of an ensanguined ocean using his divine Anubis power. … That sounded silly, but hopefully you get the idea. ^__^

Thank you kindly, I'm glad you like the connection. :bow: This Gaara was quite a departure from what I'd originally envisioned him before I started the drawing.. he turned out more.. sinister looking in the end. O__o

OOooo. Nice. Am I, like, the only person who notices Gaara looks like he has kohl on his eyes? O_o;

Gaara reminds me of Stkh(Set), actually.

Very nice! XD I like the idea behind it =) =)
Mmm me thinks the blood puddle (it is blood right?) can have more details, dark shades and bits of highlights to make it look more like liquid!
I think you really do eyes really well! Gaara's gaze is really penertrating...!
I am sure your friend will like it =) =)

He looks a lot older and a lot younger at the same time here for some reason. Anyhow, I thought the idea of connecting him with the Egyptian death god very original.
