NMP - Haku +Last Mission+ by matsunoki NMP - Haku +Last Mission+ by matsunoki
Before starting this thing.. i remembered a famous line..

"If anything can go wrong, it will"

Which greatly describes how this piece ended up to be.

Yesterday Evening i decided to finally Scan and CG a line art i did for 's project for like 2 months ago.

Thinking that my scanner is working fine.. i slapped the Line art on the scanner and went to proceed.

Then LO and BEHOLD!.

The scanner can't be found by my PC. The reason?.. a week ago i just REFORMATTED my PC and maybe maybe messed up the Scanner and it cannot be distinguished by my system.

YAY! I just realized... I'M SCREWED :dead:

The whole evening was spent trying to make the damn thing work... but to no avail nothing made the system accept the damn scanner (If i remember, the PC is popping something saying out that the scanner has no Device Warranty and sht... whatever). I woke up the next day after waiting for it to install and still didn't work.

My mind went to a panic... i'm stupid for being lazy and not finding out earlier...

Then we go to the remedy... i remembered that together with the awesome amount of my files backed up for the reformat is OPEN CANVAS (My savior! *kisses* ). With an immediate idea also backed up somewhere in my mind i started to draw something in Open Canvas with my trusty optical mouse.

The Line art was done after an hour and a half. Next problem.. the CG.

I let some hours of reality kick in for my mind to calm down.. (eat.. do some house work.. surf the net) Then in the afternoon I'm back to work!. The Base Colors (and some CG-d parts) are done in 3 hours (with matching intervals of doing other stuff in the PC.. like playing some games and stuff... i can never be straight forward sometimes..).

Another break to reality (nap.. watching TV... Supper...) and i'm back to work for the second time. Though now, i'm more compelled to do this thing and "finish" it. So after some hours of gazing to the PC monitor and getting some bits of radiation.. i finally finished. And this is how it came out...

Finally... :happycry: As much as i want to ask for an extension to i think that would really look absurd, because it's my fault anyway on why the sudden rush happenned. And it's also unfair to the other participants... and as much as possible i don't want to be unfair in some certain project.

This may have a hands-on version (Line Art in paper..).... Oh well... Gotta get my well deserved price.... Some Net Surfing... yeeha...

(NOTE: I wish it would be fine to for me including Zabuza in the picture... ehehehe.. :blushes: )

Rundown: (if you don't wanna read the stuff above)

Line-art: Open Canvas (3 hours)
CG: Adobe Photoshop 7 (6 hours w/intervals) (yay! it's finally working in my PC without giving me blue screens)

Art Me.
Haku & Zabuza. Masashi Kishimoto (Gawd.. i wish i owned both of them Mist Ninja's :tears:)
Don't Steal this Art and submit it to sites like and say you did it or else.. I'll hunt you down, stab you on the neck when i see you and pop your eyeballs out of their sockets.. :devil:

I like the Zabuza/Haku arc, there's something very touching and tragic about the whole thing - Kudos on a good picture!

Just looking at it..... It has a certain tone of sorrow to it, as if he knows something is going to go absolutely wrong..... If only he knew what were to happen..... He may not have died!!!!!

Thank goodness for fanfiction!

Cute haku pic! I really love the staging of it, how haku is in the front and zabuza in the back. Good job!

I don't know if your scanner is still not working, but I do know what's wrong with it.

Having reformated, the drivers and all software related to it has been deleted, so you need to reinstall them before it will work.

Hope that helps.

Ahahaha, Zabuza and his pajama pants!XD Actually jokes aside, I go with what Kikiam said. Haku's expression has that subtle anxiety that really catches my eye...and the background is simple but lovely. The hitai-ate just lying there unneatly is also a nice touch. Fav!
