A good friend of mine told me something about this drawing that I'll never forget. I showed him this photo, and this is exactly what he said to me..

"This is you picking yourself up, you are moving on. You are done with the crying, and you are standing up on your own two feet.. and pushing forward.."

I personally took this very emotionally, ...and now I believe this to be one of my most successful pieces of artwork. (Though it isn't the most popular) Thank you all for :+fav:ing..

Reading the description always makes me cry ... but the good kind.
I've been going through a really rough time lately and I've taken to looking at this picture very often ... it helps. A lot more than you'd think.
Thanks for creating this. It really means a lot to me.

Sorry for the late reply Ezzie, a lots going on atm. Thanks you, this picture is so old haha. I havent drawn anything else like it though, I think its probably my the emotional that Ive ever done.. Most people dont really see it though unless they read the description or look closely. Im glad that you like it though! An thats it able to help you during your tough times..

Yeah ... the show itself really hits me on an emotional level. I end up reading the manga or watching episodes whenever I'm feeling down. I dunno-Kishi gets me. 
I kinda felt silly confessing that to you, to be honest. It's kinda hard for me to admit stuff like that ... but it's kinda weird, you know.
I find myself looking up to characters that never existed and people I will never meet. I don't know why, but it helps. 
It's kinda funny how it works.
But, yeah, this picture is possibly my most favorite that you've done (I love your whole gallery, though).
I really feel like this one deserves a lot more credit, but hey it is what it is.
I just wanted to say thanks for making me cry and making me feeling worthwhile again.
That's a lot of really heavy stuff to say on the internet XD

I know what you mean, I had some emotions towards Naruto to. Especially how he was lonely all the time and no one liked him, I had common things happen to me like that while growing up. (Not the whole parent thing but just not being liked by anyone cause I wasnt "cool" ..) An I agree with you, Kishimoto's messages that he gives through out the show are very powerful. For example, when Im crying over something.. I usually try to think of what Naruto would do in my situation. He'd tell me to stop crying and do something about it.. save my tears for something more important. I think its a VERY inspiring story, especially when how much it tells you to never give up. It is extremely helpful and Im grateful that Kishimoto made this story, without it Im not sure what I be doing/who I'd be right now haha. Its been a really long journey, but it's finally come to a close.

Yeah, exactly. I think everyone feels completely alone at some point in their lives. Unfortunately, some much more so than others. I remember some of the earlier episodes where Team 7 was going up against Haku and Zazuba. There was this one scene that still sticks with me to this day and that is when Kakashi tells that kid that Naruto just got tired of crying one day. I think that's what makes the show so great and Naruto so relatable.

If Naruto was real, he'd definitely kick my butt around for sure XD

Man ... this series ending sucks :(
It's making me feel the same way I did when Harry Potter ended ....

I dont think the ending was sucky, but I dont like chapter 700 at all. I think it should of ended at 699.. Now theres just a bunch of fandom that Im really not into haha. Other than that it was a super great story with a nice ending.. I just wish it could of lasted for ever ya know? I never thought the day would come were Naruto finally ended. I totally agree what you said though.

I actually loved the epilogue XD
I dunno-seeing everybody as parents and their freaking adorable kids gets me all happy inside 
But I get what you mean. It was kinda funny because I was telling one my friends how bad I felt for all the SasuNaru fans (which she is a part of) out there 'cause it's not canon and then she pointed out how there's this whole SaradaxBolt ship now (which I can definitely support haha)
No, she started getting all silly on me and said something along the lines of "Their blood will mix!" or whatever. I laughed so hard XD

I don't want it to end, either D: 
I feel like I lost something really precious now :(
