Daily Deviation

Given 2010-09-27
Both the animation and the music in Itachi by *MichelVictor bring to life the dark and mysterious essence of this character, making you feel the fear running through your blood as his mere glance captivates you and unables you to take your eyes off it. Mesmerizing! ( Featured by rydi1689 )
Not only has MichelVictor created a stunning digital painting with phenomenally realistic detail, he has also pushed this art to an entirely new level by animating it. With entirely believable visual effects and awesome audio, this piece is truly fitting and respectful of the character it portrays, and gives Itachi the most human feel I've ever seen. This is so well put together, I have trouble finding a negative to point out. Even the warping in the heat is accurate. I guess I can only say that I wish you moved him around even more, I truly believe you are capable of doing so. It's a shame the entire show can't be animated to this level.
What do you think?

This animation personifies the complexity of Itachi's character. While we all know him to be the one who murdered his entire clan, we've also learned that he loved his village, his family, and most importantly, Sasuke. The facial expression is very in-character. It's calm, collective, and, from what I see, a little mellow and reflective. A clear sign that there is more to this character than just the surface details, he's not just a cold-hearted killer. MichelVictor conveyed that point masterfully. As far as details such as the proper shadowing, texture effects, and the glow from the fire, they're all there in fine order. The fire also helps project that reflective feeling on Itachi's face I mentioned above.

Now that I've seen your more recent works, I wonder how this would change if you decided to remake it. ;D Nah, it's perfect the way it is.

Even though I've had this tucked away in my favorites folder for years, this piece still remains stunning and entirely unique in the DeviantART world. This definitely deserves the DailyDeviation, I only wish it could have it given again!!

You're very welcome!

And yeah, I'm not surprised at all that it'd be tough to remake. Just making it in itself is mind-boggling to me!

Do you have any other Naruto characters in the works or planned at all?

Hahahaha, I always tought to remake all my old deviants, mainly the first ones, like Anne Marie.
Thank you!
