I'm very creative, I love making things, and I love the Zelda games. I'm a gamer in general and a bit of a perfectionist. I always try to do things myself at least once, and more often than not end up with a new skill. I've dabbled in webdesign back in the day, but I'm a visual thinker and no programmer, so I stick to what I grew up with- making things with my hands.


Yuuka: Fight! by Sarinilli
Yuuka: Fight!

So I've always been iffy on my own line my awesome boyfriend SkyeMakoto sat me down and gave me some pointers; walked me through the basics he uses. I'd like to say I'm really proud of how this came out and very thankful that he took the time to help me out. This is probably the first pose I've done that wasn't just..standing..that didn't highly rely on references of some sort. :D

So here's my Naruto character, Yuuka, in a fighting stance. Maybe she's about to fight someone outside the image, or maybe she's just training.

Drawn on paper, scanned, then re-drawn and colored in Photoshop CS3 with my Wacom Intuos3 tablet.
The background is a digitally edited picture I took up in the mountains one day that I thought was fitting.

If you want to see her previous "profile image", it's over here.

And for the ease of it, if anyone wants to know her story...keep reading. :3

• ~ • ~ • ----------- How she came to be ----------- • ~ • ~ •

• Yuuka began as an original character. Or so I thought. I had worked out her personality and relation to other characters, mildly altering storylines so she would fit without being a mary sue or outright breaking canon.
This was back in 2006, and I was way behind in reading the manga at the time- legit OR fan translations. So when I wrote her story I had no idea who Rin was. Yeah. Exactly. Yuuka, without my realization, was only a slightly altered version of an existing character. So, I merged her OVER Rin's character.

• ~ • ~ • ---------- Bio, Info & Background ---------- • ~ • ~ •

Name: 入谷夕花 (Iriya, Yuuka)
Meaning: Yuuka means "evening flower"
Age: 26
Birthday: Nov. 15
Height: 5’2” (158cm)
Weight: 110lbs (50kg)
Blood Type: A
Hometown: Konohagakure
Team: Minato (disbanded)

Personality: She's a very bright, kind matured, understanding girl, who cares a lot about her friends and would do anything to help those she cares about. She dislikes conflicts between friends and tried to help both sides see the others point of view. She can be stubborn to a fault, and overly emotional but keeps it to herself. She has a mean temper that she also keeps in check, and to date no one has ever seen her loose her cool.

Background: Iriya Yuuka was the third member of team Minato, with Hatake Kakashi and Uchiha Obito under the lead of future fourth Hokage, Namikaze Minato. She was a highly skilled medical-nin, but never thought of herself as being adept enough in other skills. Yuuka constantly struggled with her team for various reasons- thinking it kinder to act oblivious to Obito's obvious crush on her, though playing down her own feelings for Kakashi. This aside she took it upon herself to be the middleman every time they fought, not taking sides, as regardless of her feelings she could understand both points of view.

After their mission to destroy the Kannabi bridge, and Obito's death, she grew closer to Kakashi, consoling him as well as eventually letting it slip how she felt. The night of the Kyuubi attack on Konoha however she ran off on her own to try and assist Minato and Kushina, much to Kakashi's protests as they had been told to hide somewhere safe. Kakashi pursued her, and they both fell into harms way. Kakashi was almost killed and Yuuka barely saved his life. After which they were found by the 3rd Hokage and stricken with remorse and blaming herself for the death of her mentor as well as Kakashi's near death, Yuuka decided to leave before Kakashi woke up. She begged the Hokage to keep it a secret to which he agreed. Yuuka was thereafter listed as a casualty to conceal the truth.

Yuuka's plan was always to return to her hometown once she felt she could face her friends again. During Kakashi's days as an ANBU, there had been "sightings" of a girl fitting Yuuka's description in the countryside- this being the secret reason behind Kakashi leaving the village for over two years even though she was supposed to be dead. He returned having never found her- Yuuka was always one step ahead (and had no idea he was looking for her anyway). Years later, far longer than she had intended, Yuuka finally returns to Konohagakure after travelling through various countries, learning various cultures and training herself along the way.

Current day: I'm saving this for if I ever actually write her into a fanfic. I have it plotted it, we'll just see what happens. :3

Hi everyone! I know some of you are always on the lookout for new things I'm putting up in my Etsy shop, so this question is for you:

What if I moved to my own website? I'm thinking about moving away from Etsy and running the shop entirely on my own... any feedback from you guys will be a great help! ♥

ello! it's been awhile. I'm working on a new piece and was wondering if I could borrow a font for it. I'm working on a new version of the Master Sword and need it to finish some detail work. You will get credit of course but I am going to ask you first instead of finding it on some random website.

Of course! You know all of my fonts are free for personal use; so slather your fanart/artwork with them as much as you want. I look forward to seeing the finished work! :3

I know they are but I didn't go through you first last time and found them elsewhere. Figured I'd at least ask for permission and let you know before I attempted anything THIS time ;)

Haha That's really nice of you! :3
But yes, feel free; and I look forward to seeing what you create with it. ^_^
