The Art of BFA

This will most likely be for Star Wars AND Non-SW Art so yeah... Anyways....

Just a couple of quick sketches to start off with. I haven't drawn anything in a LONG while so please forgive me if they are a little off in some area's.

For the people who like Naruto, you will know these characters very well



And....




..... Let me know whar you all think yeah?

Thanks chev. I was kinda anxious bout these. As I said, I haven't drawn anything for a LONG while and I just wanted to do a little sketch before I try anything drastic.

Here's a Sakura one I did whilst in a Maths lesson back in 06...

What about it bothers you? Any idea's to make it look better would be greatly appreciated

The thing I find what I don't like about it most is her eyes. I didn't get them right I reckon.

The eyes look fine, great in fact, it's just that line mouths bother me for some reason, other then that it looks great

Nicely done, BFA! I'm not a Naruto fan but I've seen it a few times. All your picture's look very close like the characters, in my opinion.

Excellent artwork, Mr. BFA!! Completely awesome work! These characters almost look exactly as they do in the show! So the Chancellor of the Plumbership {aka, apprentice of the Sith Lord of Annoyingness} gives you......two thumbs up{That's a 10}


you very much

Those are very nice: I like the expression, especially the first drawing. The character looks... helpless almost.

I'm not into those Japanese cartoons (they have a name for what they are right... I just can't remember... @_@). But you draw them, and it actually looks GOOD! I know people who *try* to draw like that but only certain people can pull it off... Yours look great! =3

I've been drawing from the Manga I have of Naruto. Don't really watch the show much. It's on either when I'm asleep or working so yeah.
Thanks for the comments guys. Feels good when it seems that my drawings aren't as bad as what I think they might be

@Rachel: 'Anime' is the term I believe you are looking for


New thing. This time it is a painting I did not too long ago. I call it, 'Looking Out To sea,'
This pice won first prize at the local show art competition I'm proud to announce

I LOVE it! I adore the color of the sky and the water, and the matting really brings out those colors. Great job!

I done it a few years back when I was like ... 14 or something. And it was only a small town art comp so I don't think they had many entries to choose from lol.
I think I buggered up the cliff a lot and the rocks in the sea isn't the best either.
Ah well .. the curse of just starting out I guess...

Anyways .. Glad you all like

Meh, if you want to be overly critical about it I guess you could say the perspective is a little wierd. (There doesn't seem to be a vanishing point)

But I think it's very beautiful, especially considering you did it when you were 14. You don't need to be so modest, it's very lovely painting! =3

There's not supposed to be a vanishing point either. It's meant to focus on the entire picture. Apparently not having a vanishing point actually accentuates that idea.

Well then.. There's nothing to critisize. XD

Do you have any more paintings? I especially love your color, it's vivid.

I like this one, from what I can see of the water I like it. I also like the detail of the land. It looks real. ^^ Especially the reflections of the land in the water.

... Yeah, I had fun with the water. That's my most favorite part of this pic.
Glad you like

Not really sure about the sky and mountains in the background but. I think the sky could have been a little lighter and and moutains little less ... edgy, I guess. They stand out too much imo.

Wow, BFA, these are great. I was surprised to see both Naruto sketches and seaside paintings...I like the versatility.

As to Serene Bay: I agree, the water is awesome. I like the color of the sky, personally. I agree with you, the mountain could be a bit less edgy, but I think that is a minor detail that does not really detract from the overall piece.

Can't wait for reviews, eh? Oh, you never were the patient one .

Cheer's, Fish

Last painting for a while.
This is the first one I ever did. [Yep, like Rach, I dug deep into the archives ]

This one is titled, 'Outback'.
It also won first place in a competition.

Just popping by to say that's awesome stuff, especially your landscapes!



The sun goes down and the sky reddens, pain grows sharp.
light dwindles. Then is evening
when jasmine flowers open, the deluded say.
But evening is the great brightening dawn
when crested cocks crow all through the tall city
and evening is the whole day
for those without their lovers

Those trees are gorgeous, it's almost as if I can reach out and touch them. ^^

I love trees, and I admire people who can paint them beautifully like that. ^^

I think I kind of buggered up on Hinata's hair and eyes a little bit. Plus I forgot to dark her mouth. You can hardly see it!

^ Drops in the ocean I say. The mouth can easily be colored in.

Naruto's expression is priceless!

Glad to see the addition BFA!
