Naruto was only a baby when he became a vessel where Kyubi, the terrible Nine-tailed Demon Fox, in order to imprison him. While often feeling “cursed” with it, Naruto learnt to live with it and even eventually befriended his “guest”. This is the feeling we wanted to emphasize here: the unusual bond between a young boy and his Tailed Beast.
Based on one of our artists’ original artwork, this statue features Uzumaki Naruto, sitting on a massive Kyubi. We can feel the fresh feeling of understanding and friendship between those two. Naruto is watching Kyubi, looking annoyed by his guests’ giant tails. Kyubi’s looking at Naruto, feeling slightly upset, yet kind of amused.
The sculpture fuses digital art and traditional art to achieve a stunning visual result, both precise and organic. While being technical and complex, the statue still displays reasonable sizes so as many collectors as possible may be able to exhibit her with no need of a specific setup. One of the most important part of the art was to get Naruto and Kyubi’s expressions right, just as their gazes. This is our first piece in the original Naruto universe, and we wanted to offer an original composition where sculpting and painting would convey as accurate as it can the show’s ambiance.
The statue comes with a numbered plate and a certificate of authenticity.
Scale 1/8th. Total run of 1600 pieces.
Estimated release date : 1st semester 2020
