One More Time (Naruto OC) by KarameruYukika One More Time (Naruto OC) by KarameruYukika
Ack. I haven't drawn Yora in ages. @w@; I figured I would draw her last night when I found one of an old friend, =Hiota's, drawings of her OC. She was explaining how she made her character for her love of the series Naruto, and how really bad fans from the fandom would constantly give her crap on how her Oc was a "mary sue" and blablabla, and I have to agree. That shit was annoying. You couldn't draw anything from naruto without some little turd going "HURRDURR MARY SUE!!111!!11one1!" And it really kills the fun of drawing it.

: /

-shrug- All well. I personally stopped drawing naruto because not only was the series evolving into filler crap, but the fandom just got worse and worse. All of the friends I had into naruto (well, not all, but most) was in some sort of popularity contest to see who could gain the most popularity out of their character. I was just.. sick of it.

Finally, after I drew a piece for a contest, (from what I believe) the girl running it only picked the top three most popular people in the contest and not the best three entries. I felt the contest was rigged and the girl was only popularity hungry, and that was the last time I ever really drew anything from naruto ever since. That killed it for me. I was pissed. I ranked high up, but still, the more popular people won even though there were better entries.

Anyways, this picture is a dedication to one of my first anime series I got into, one of the most inspiring series I've ever seen, and a series that started me off in digital art, which is something I love.
I wish I didn't let the fandom bother me, but I still don't regret stopping drawing naruto. Drawing has become much more fun for me, because I do it for fun and not to match up to other popular artists. : /

Sorry for this long description. |D
Quick information on Yora:

Yoratenari (Yora) Tsukimoto comes from a small branch in a large clan. This small branch broke off and left to konoha to expand their knowledge and powers as ninjas, as well as rebel against the original clan line's obnoxious and crazy rules. Despite growing up hearing only bad things and smack talk about the main clan line, Yoratenari always had interest of going there. After assigned a mission with her team to go to the hidden moon village, all of the team members ended up splitting off and not following their orders, Mariko (Male, Yora's best friend, Yora is his love interest) cuts off a bit of yora's hair for a forbidden jutsu involving DNA merging, and runs off. Yora finds her original clan and stays for three years, training and living under the main clan, learning their ways. Due to their strictness, Yora was not allowed to cut her hair. It is believed in their clan that woman can carry any burden and aren't allowed to cut their hair, training them to fight better even when things are in the way. Before leaving, Yora had always been ditsy and quiet, focusing on minuscule things that weren't important. She didn't focus on her training at all, and because of this was very weak and vunerable. After staying with her clan, she seems to grow up and mature alot, becoming alot stronger. After returning to konoha, Mariko returns shortly after with the ability to use her clan's special moon chakra. He infused her DNA in order to steal her clan's special ability under the order of someone else. The two end up hating eachother, until they were put face-to-face in battle. Mariko nearly kills Yora before he realizes what he's done, and stops to revive everything again. He apologizes for what he's done, explains what happened, and that he always had feelings for her and blabla. |D In the end they get married, woo~

I'm glad I have my favorites on random, I get to find old favorites I forgot about, like this one! While I understand your decision to leave the naruto verse, I miss seeing Yora. She was always a favorite of mine! She was beautiful and had a wonderful story and clan. I miss seeing her and her story. I still love your work though and it's only gotten better with time and I'm glad I re-found this piece to remind me of that! Wonderful work!

Hi, your Oc is cute and your drawing style is amazing ^^ in my opinion just Oc is fine, but if you pair it with canon then I think the Oc is "mary sue" . Also when she have some "mary sue" things like: Big boobs, 2 hair colors, very "KAWAII" eyes, usually (emo hair or pink hair), "nothing can beat me", "I'm best", too many powers, too many relations with canon (brothers, sisters, lovers ), story that's not making any sense. Some people just made OC for that they can pair OC with canon. This is some information about mary sue Oc and stuff:) fandoms are also very sick in my opinion:3 hope you can draw more of your OC and remember to have fun^^

Would you ever consider allowing someone to use your OC in a fanfict? I've been thinking of doing a Naruto fanfict for a while now featuring an OC and Kakashi (cuz he's awesome). Let me know because you are really talented!

I'd prefer you didn't use this character only because she was one of my first characters and I hold her close to me, and still use her from time to time.
I appreciate that you like her so much but I have a story for her already and don't like the idea of people writing non-canon things about her ;v;'
You can use any other naruto OCs in my gallery (if there are some) that aren't her. ;v;
But thank you!

What I mean is, nearly everyone uses paint tool sai and photoshop and it takes all the surpirses out of it.  Because the both of them are so over used it makes them boring.  Besides, other programs need some love. 

You stopped drawing naruto oc's for the same reason I stopped using sai

:iconkarameruyukika:
KarameruYukika Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2014
That's a pretty dumb generalization. That's like saying everyone uses computers and that takes the fun out of the internet so you stop using computers.
The program doesn't make the artist, the skills and technique do.

Its the drama that stopped me from OCs. The lack of talent, the lack of care for art, the lack of a good community. Every now and again, I still draw my OCs, I just don't post them. They are my precious treasures~

Don't let something "popular" stop you from using it. There's also other underground programs which I'm sure you can find and use~ (not including paint.net, ms paint, or gimp because I think of those the same lol. More like Open Canvas, Fire Alpaca, and a few others I'm sure I haven't heard the name of)

I don't just not use paint tool sai and photoshop because there popular, its because there boring and people who use them look down on other art program.

Have you seen the ms paint haters!?

:iconkarameruyukika:
KarameruYukika Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2014
No, but Ms Paint isn't exactly a great program for anything other than pixel, and some dA users seem to think they are god descended from heaven and better than everybody else from using Paint. o: I feel like also a very rare and small chunk of people actually seriously use MS Paint and the rest are more of like... hobbyists
like "I am going to trace this here naruto screen shot or draw my OCs repeatedly not really expanding my abilities and das okei" which is why probably a lot of people bash it

Oh I hate that too, I draw my own pictures of my oc, editing isn't going to get you anywhere.  People don't think there god for drawing with ms paint where did you hear that?

Ms paint can actually be a very good programs, have you seen :iconminori-pixel: and :iconsakuraxss005: They use ms paint and there pictures look like it came out of sai or another program.  I used to use ms paint because it had no layer, I find layers confusing but then I converted to firealpaca. 

Everyone has there own opinion, and I'm not the only paint tool sai and photoshop disliker.
