ITASAKU by Doodle-Master ITASAKU by Doodle-Master
...Fanfiction sucked me into this. It's all's fault!

(and if any of you, perchance, were about to to refer me to a certain ItachixSakua fanfiction called "Loophole," I can tell you right now that that thing is really boring.)

I still can't believe that this in the only thing with a background I've been able to complete in what feels like over a year. *sulks* Maybe I'll go back and correct the clothes they're wearing later, since I really didn't look for any references before starting.

Also, Sakura's face reminds me of someone...

Wow, this is great! I think that this is the best ItaSaku pic. Ive ever sean! (or close to it :)) I have to agree with you on the story Loophole. I lost interest in it too. I read the first six chapters though.Have you read A Ripple in the Pond , or A Continuous Circle ? (+their sequels) Just wondering. I recommend them. :)

I know, right! Loophole was so boring! I read like 8 chapters hoping it would get better, and it didn't! I just don't get why so many people like it.

I like the unusual perspective. I don't know how you did it, but Sakura's face looks very 'real'. It's almost like a picture.

Love this pairing and the picture. Nice job.

Nice! Really well done.

Oh, Loophole, how you have dissapointed me... I literally just started it not an hour ago, and am already bored....

Anyway, love how you did this!

I liked Loophole, and I think you should give it a chance, read it to the end, it's very good. BUT my current fav is a story called Shisui by :iconLadyhanaka: Her profile name is the same as her one here. Shisui is actually the 4th I think in a series of ItaSaku. Also she has others that are good too.

Oh...hehe, and I meant to say, I love your art! The coloring is really awesome. I am horrible at backgrounds and I envy you.

The fanfiction you speak of, I have been loosing interest in :( It has been draging on, but I only have one chapter left to go, so what the heck :shrug: ^^ Very nice art indeed, like the style :nod:

Awesome Pic. I dunno about Loophole....I dunno If I've read that yet, But I do know a good ItaSaku Story of It's called 'A Continious Circle' and It's sequal 'And the Circle comes around' by JUCHKO. Definitely my favorite of all ItaSaku stories...

I think I read the first one, but lost interest during the sequel. D: I should stop doing that.
DudettRin101 Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2008
I know how you feel, I do it all the time. I've actually lost interest in the sequal a few times, But then she Does something that has me hooked again.

First of all, I love the perspective, it's very refreshing. And because they look much like real humas, the whole atmosphere is whoa. Very nice, very realistic.

Secondly, now you have every right to dislike Loophole (obviously), and I myself know something about an ff washed in (not deserving it in my opinion) love. It feels like screaming, right? ; ) But jokes aside, I can slightly agree with you. The plot of Loophole is not something ingenious and moments between them border on unhealthy mushy fangirlism, but looking at every fanfiction I've ever read, Loophole is the good one. Leafy doesn't abuse Itachi, has a nice, professional language (opposed to fangirlish) and well... It's not my favourite story, but I've read much worse. Yes, the ones, that everyone loves and would protest for me calling it bad +.+
May I ask which stories do you like? I'm genuinely interested.

Holy hell.

I'm incredibly sorry for not replying faster. I'll just leave my apology at that, seeing how anything more would dig me further into the hole.

Anyways, I really like more or less anything by paws-bells, and I'm keeping up with "The Contentious Heart," by elle6778. I've got one called "Perception" bookmarked, but reading it over again, I don't like it quite as much. For some reason, I'm thinking of the names "Midazuki" (sp?) and "Captive" as one for fics I liked also, but I don't seem to remember just what they were about.

There's a whole slew of other stories I liked, but my browsing history files got corrupted recently so I don't have all my favourite fanfictions bookmarked anymore.

Talking further about Loophole, it wasn't the plot or the tone that really put me off. It was the fact that it had too many blasted adjectives and descriptive sentences that disrupted the flow, and thus my enjoyment of the story. I suppose I mean to say that I just don't like Leafygirl's (sp?) writing style. I even checked her other stories and was very disappointed to find that they were all written the same way, but, judging by the amount of reviews she has, I guess many people don't have any qualms about that.

I've been having "The Contentious Heart" bookmarked for a long time now, but seeing how many repsectable people start to love it I decided to finally read it too. After 3 chapters, things are indeed very nice and even Itachi stays Itachi, so I'm having high hopes with this story.
Do you mean "Mikadzuki"? It's the continuation of "Captive", but I must admit these are stories I forgot after a week or so.
I love "Perception", mainly because of the feeling it lefts. I read it really long time ago and now, I'm not so fond of some particular scenes or motives, but the ending was powerful and the way I liked. That's why it's one of my favourites stories, because thinking of it in retrospection always brings pleasant memories and "good taste".

I see. Writing style is definitely something that can bug you. I myself haven't noticed that in Leafy, I'm rather bothered by stories which have many gramatical/spelling mistakes and are written in a "fangirlish-marysuish" style (than a style that is correct, but boring).
Speaking of a nice style, have you maybe read "The Way of the Wind"? It's an AU story with Itachi being Itachi and a very intriguing Anbu captain and Sakura who have most interesting character change, the best I've ever met. There is no boring description and the Authoress knows how to use... words. I recommend it with all my might :3

Love this background!:heart:

You really think Loophole is boring? :actually wanna read it to:
Btw. Great art! :typerhappy:
Doodle-Master Featured By Owner May 21, 2008   Digital Artist
I honestly lost interest in Loophole after reading about ten sentences. It has really nice descriptions, almost poetic at some points, but they weigh down what's happening in the story and drag it out to no end, in my opinion. It'd be fine if these descriptions were used to dramatize important events, but instead, they are everywhere. *shudders*

Obviously, though, judging by the sheer amount of reviews Loophole has, many people love that kind of thing and would (violently?) disagree with me on that.

are you leafygirl on
Doodle-Master Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2009   Digital Artist
No, but what gave you that impression?
xXTroublesomeGirlxX Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2009  Hobbyist
meh i just thought u wrote it a bit slow.

(and if any of you, perchance, were about to to refer me to a certain ItachixSakua fanfiction called "Loophole," I can tell you right now that that thing is really boring.)

Yerr ah well...

I still like the picture, tis very well coloured and drawn.
Mokulule Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2008
The thing is, it was the first ItaSaku with real plot^^ Which actually had a reason for Sakura to heal Itachi's eyes, it basically set a certain standard for that kind of fic. So it's quite famous. I'll agree that it's not the best, cause a lot has happened to the fandom since then.

I'm guessing your more into Paws-bell's type of fics then, cause they are simply amazing. There's not many who don't know them.

Okay to the actual picture... It's breathtaking.The angle, the background, the kunais stuck in the tree glinting, their expressions. It tells it's own little story. It's simply beautiful and with amazing details.
