Second Time Around by Amasaki-chan Second Time Around by Amasaki-chan
:iconpapmingplz: homygod you guys.
This took me forever to finish. I think I started it in like May, seriously. I'd only work on it every now and then when I'd get the chance to or motivation struck.

Yes, this picture has a backstory, or an explanation more so.
It stems from this thought that popped into my head one day.
I've always wondered how Sakura's chuunin exam went the second time she took it. In the beginning of shippu Sakura simply affirmed that she was an official chunnin now, and it was never brought up again. Later we found out that everyone else became a chuunin over the time skip also, but again, there was never any detail. That's how this idea was born.

What if - since all three failed the first time - Sakura formed a three-man squad with Ino and Hinata to have another go at the exams? I think it would be a nice bridge to how these three went from the weaker side to substantially improving in shippuden.
So they all get new outfits, of course.
This is also where Ino and Sakura grow out their hair (Sakura cuts her's off again before part 2 starts).
I have always wondered how Hinata grew her hair out from her dora pixie-cut to her super long straight hair. I tried to portray that transition with her hair here.
You might also be able to see the little hints at what items of clothing stuck to later be a part of their shippuden outfits. (Hinata's shoes, her purple-ish/white jacket, Sakura's boots and gloves etc.)

Can you imagine Sakura freaking out every 10 seconds during the forest of death thinking Orochimaru's gonna pop out behind every tree lolololol I wanna draw that maybeIwill.

Wallpaper size because I said so.

Thank you so much! Ino's shirt was inspired by Kallen's outfit from Code Geass. I love all of their outfits in their respective ways~ o u o
And I tried to give off a sense of 'canon' with this so I'm glad you think so!

Well I don't know Kallen from Code Geass, but I think I'll take a look at her!
Their outfits are all really cute, but Ino's is best ^^

Ah, here's a good close-up image of her wearing the outfit that inspired Ino's shirt, [link] .
It's the dark red undershirt.
And thank you again, I'm really proud of all of their outfits. When designing them, I knew firsthand that Ino would be wearing PANTS, because in all of her outfits she's wearing skirts. I wanted to make her look all heavy-duty/serious business.
Oh, and this re-design by one of my favorite Naruto artists, E-nat, also convinced me that pants were the way to go. :thumbsup: [link]
She just looks so awesome!

Oh, she looks cool. But I've really never seen her before.
I think you've selected the shirt well ^^

Yes, it was a great idea to let her wear pants.
It's boring to wear always skirts :D

E-nat's picture is pretty cool. I also like it! :)

I had forgotten about Tenten, maybe I'll do something separate for her like this [link]
Unless I feel up for designing new ones for Lee and Neji as well.
And I might do Temari, her's would be more difficult considering she moved up ranks back at the sand. But thank you for the lovely comment! I'm so happy to hear that you like my style<3

I wish Kishimoto's Hinata looked like the Hinata in your drawing. Her time-skip long hair is too generic a hairstyle and unlike her jacket in this picture, her outfits in the manga and anime are ugly. :(

On a postive note, I really like Sakura's shirt. :)

Yeah I'm not a fan of her jackets, too often they get lazy with the coloring and make her look like a blob. I don't mind her pants in shippuden though. And it's also the same with her hair, lazy coloring makes it look like a brick, or that she sprayed forty cans of hair spray on it - too stiff. Thanks so much though for this lovely comment! I'm ecstatic that you'd want my version of Hinata in place of the cannon one. And I really like Sakura's shirt as well, thanks! o v o

Totally agree about her hair looking like a brick. I thought I was the only one.
