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.
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
ich glaube ich hätte das nicht durch google-übersetzter jagen sollen ^^' "ich habe das gefül ich kann nicht mer atmen und ich begine zu weinen wen ich das sehe" wollte ich i-wie ausdrücken hat nicht so gut geklapt ^^' wie gesagt wunderfoll und unglaublich traurig
Shisui really is such an underrated character, without Shisui, the story wouldn't even have been the same... I don't think many people know that though However! This drawing is so freaking awesome! I adore it <3
I don't think so! I'm not really the biggest Uchiha fan, but I still like Shisui a lot! But yeah, I guess that you won't be as interested in Shisui if you weren't an Uchiha fan, seeing as alot of people just like Uchiha's because... They're Uchiha's :S You're welcome though! I really like this picture >_<
It's a defined goal of mine to direct people's attention towards Shisui. He needs more fanart and appreciation. He was supposed to be one of the Uchihas' legends, I even read somewhere that he was supposedly the most talented member of his clan (and what does that tell us if we know Itachi? - right, he must have been godly.) Apart from that, he was Itachi's first love best fried, which makes him interesting in his own right. To top it all, he's pretty.
I'm happy I made you feel this way with my drawing!

SHISUI SHISUI SJFKDSJKFJDJFD MY FEELS, MAN
oh god, I think this is one of your most powerful drawings yet. Shisui is a character who is rarely explored by artists, and even though Kishi revealed what he DID, we still don't know nearly enough about who he WAS. I have my own headcanons of what kind of individual Shisui was and how he acted, but I wish I could have seen more of his personality from Kishi. As far as I know, he was focused and dedicated, and very, very loyal. Itachi did say that Shisui was similar to naruto as far as the fact that they shared similar goals and ideals, so I imagine his personality to be somewhat of an interesting mix between Naruto and Itachi. Despite not knowing much about him, I can't help but love him.
Love how you expressed his sacrifice and his final journey, as well as the silvery metal sheen of his headband. It almost looks cold to the touch. And you drew his lips and lovely Uchiha eyelashes perfectly. You're always the boss with lips. It's a Fifi thing.
ILOVETHATCOMMENT! Thank you so much! I kept it in my inbox and read it a hundred times!
Most people seem to perceive Shisui as a very outgoing, enthusiastic and also derpy kind of guy...I've often seen that in fanart and fanfiction. But that seems to be a headcanon completely made up by the fandom, since there is no actual evidence for that in the manga at all. I don't think it's a bad thing though. I personally think something similar to your view. He was portrayed as an outstanding fighter even for an Uchiha, and I think you're right in that loyalty and dedication are major features of his. I think he's also extremely intelligent, don't ask me why. Yeah, maybe his personality is a mix of Itachi's and Naruto's character. Geez, what an awesome personality, isn't it?
Haha yes the metal, I love to draw metal since I find it so easy to get the metal effect! Oh yes and lips and eyes, I can always go on a lips and eyes rampage when I draw Uchihas, cause they're so damn beautiful! I love it!
DEAR! THIS. The beauty and sadness that engulfs such macabre circumstances... You´re so talented, being able to create such a striking image. Love the details on Shisui´s face. Personally, I´d love to see more of him and Itachi, I can´t imagine the epicness and the impact both of them combined would have on my brain. Beautiful artwork!!
What a great coincidence, since I've become really intrigued by Shisui the last weeks. And of course, my only possible headcanon makes him Itachi's lover from before the massacre. So it's highly possible that I'll draw more of them in general, but due to terrible finals I probably won't upload a lot until march. Beware of sketchy spam on Tumblr because I have to relax from studying and exam terror.
You're the only person who ever draw this scene more perfectly than I ever imagined it. I'm devided between its unbearable sadness and its absolute beauty. I guess I could say the same about Shisui and Itachi's lives. You're an amazing artist... I hope you know that...
