This gif was conceptualized when Naruto was on it's pre-time skip period and was being shown in local TV (dubbed). Gaara's battle with Rock Lee on the Chuunin exams was the main inspiration for this gif. When Rock Lee was evadng Gaara's sand attacks Lee was (i think) running in a manner similar to this.
So anyway the style that the Gif was in was not an original idea of mine but rather the SNK Fighter NGPC style
; in games like King of Fighters R1 and R2. If you're someone who knows SNKP's history of releases you'd know this style and there are many people who uses/used this style on countless on fan-sprites around the net.
Big props to the great efeX
for helping me with Rock Lee's face when i was doing this a year ago or something. This is kinda old and i just stumbled on this stagnant project some months ago... so i edited the animation and the colors while taking breaks on work.
And speaking of which, it still ain't allowing me to do more things. So...
