This is my version of Shisui's death.

Don't ask me why he his shoes are missing, I felt like he might have taken them off before jumping.

Shisui is such an intriguing character.

I actually think your depiction of his death is better then canon. Especially his expression, you can see the sorrow he must have felt over not being able to prevent the coup and his resignation about what Itachi would have to do as a result. Kudos!

Thanks! Well, I think there was hardly any depiction of his death in canon, so all I did was explore it somewhat. Shisui is a fascinating character to me, in fact I'm in the final stage of drawing a whole doujinshi about how his death happened and how it affected Itachi too.

Characters like Itachi, Shisui, Tobirama, and Danzo -I know some people don't like him but I find him interesting- definitely need to be explored more in canon. To me they embody what ninja should be; complex individuals who operate within varying shades of gray.

That would be amazing to see, especially in your style!

In my opinion when Itachi killed Shisui he awakened his Mangekyou Sharingan (because you need to kill the person closest to your heart) and then Itachi used Amaterasu to destroy corpses, that's why no one can't find them.

Actually, to activate the Mangekyou sharingan, one has to witness or experience the death of a loved one first hand, not necessarily do it.

Hehehe, You were right :). Itachi was the witness of Shisuis death and then activate the Mangekyou sharingan.

You're right, I quite forgot that Itachi must have been the one to kill Shisui, due to the Mangakyou Sharingan he has after the incident. Hmpf. I'm currently drawing a doujin about exactly those scenes, and I actually need to change my concept now because like you made me aware of now it would be highly unlikely for Shisui to kill himself all alone without Itachi having a hand in it. Damn! But thank you for pointing it out!

That's so sad. i wonder how Shisui felt when he gave his eyes to Itachi and committed suicide. Poor Itachi has alot of pressure on him :(. its so sad that he has to die. beautiful and touching picture though, made me cry :D

Well, yes. It's a sad story. Thank you, anyway!
