Basara Sarasa x Shuri by SpiffyMai Basara Sarasa x Shuri by SpiffyMai
Okay! So I posted in my journal that I was digging the old-school style of anime so I gave ti a shot. LoL.

This is Sarasa and Shuri from Legend of Basara. I know its not the best thing in the world, lol.. but I had fun with it. XD

Waho! Love to see Basara fanart--Shuri and Sarasa are two of my heroes. ;) They look pretty young here. But then again, I guess they are rather young in the story, huh? (I always forget, on account of Yumi Tamura's art.)

If memory serves, and that is a LOOOOONG time ago, I believe they were young. I think that Shuri was maybe 19?

I love it, I think it came out more modernized than you intended, but believe me that's a good thing. It's tragic that not too many people know about this manga, especially because IT'S SO GOOD! Fucking Narutards >:\

Love your depiction, keep up the fantastic work!

Yeah I was reading it online because I don't have library access to it anymore, but the site I was reading it on didn't have the end.

I love Basara too! I like how you drew Sasara--unruly and kind of manly; it was probably how she actually looked, running around as Tatara. XD

I think I'd like to try starting some sort of DA community thing for Basara, where we have a goal, like "100 Basara fanarts" or something. I'm not sure it'd be possible, but it might be fun to try.

Sweet! I'll see if I can't set it up!
There is something like that, right? An option to create deviant art communities or some such? I'll have to look into it, lol.

Um. I dunno. I know you can make a new DA Account titled "Basara_Love" or "Basara_Club" or something like that. It'll be like the DA you have only you do things differently when running it.

Oh, woah, I totally forgot about this goal... that sounds like a lot of fun! Maybe we could make it a Yumi Tamura celebration... Basara and 7 Seeds (and other Tamura series) 100 drawings?

I know! That's why I had to make some. Its such a great series. I love the art even though its somewhat unrefined at times and VERY oldschool. The story was fantastic. Thanks for the comment! =D

I think it's because a lot of people don't like the art style, and therefore can't get over it to get into the absolutely AMAZING story.
Like.. holy crap. So good it makes my head explode. XD

I admit I didn't like the art style at first either.... I started watching the series first before I heard about the manga and I actually d/led it cuz it looked old [I fell in love with oldschool anime] and then I decided to read the manga. It has its own great qualities to it that I love artistically!! I love the style. Sometime I'd like to do a comic of my own in a replica style. LOL
