Here's my ninja character Pinari (as there is no "li" in Japanese). This took me a while, but I'm happy with the result.
For the contest at
I think I'm starting to appreciate how much a background can add to a picture now. :3 I never used to, but now I really put effort into and try and make a good background. I think it really adds up.
Anyway, the background is the arena from the Chuunin finals where they all were matched up and fought against each other. My character is supposed to be jumping up and forwards from the ground back there (the dust didn't come out too well) and spinning into a kick or something like that towards her opponent.
Yay! ^^ *waves tiny flags*
Oh yeah, one more thing. I have glasses in RL, but I just didn't think they'd be very useful when there was a chance someone was going to leap at me and punch me in the face.
