I see why Naruto thinks they are childhood friends, but I never felt Sasuke returned the same amount of friendship. If anything the only reason I can appreciate Sasuke is because he becomes a motivating factor in Naruto wanting to become better. He needs to rise to the skill level Sasuke has demonstrated by always being a step ahead.
Anyway, for the sketch I went with a horizontal view because I saw this Shippuden pose in my head before I started. I wanted to have his sword out to the side to fill that space. Another thing, I really like the visual look of samurai's. I think most comic artists probably do, but this was a fun chance to draw a similar garb. I will be doing a Samurai week later in the year, and Im sure I will get my fill then.
