Uzumaki Ramen by jesterry Uzumaki Ramen by jesterry
For NarutoGroup's Job contest
I got Karin - Chef for code 24T - so here's the result :lol:
Enjoy the diversity and order your ramen now!

:star: :star: :star: Prints & merch available: RedBubble | Society6 

:bulletorange: With the recent revelations of ch.579 I so fell for Karin/Nagato stalking relationship :heart: I had to change the initial idea of Team Taka Restaurant :XD:

:bulletorange: It's all about SuiKa, of course (FC-SuiKa approves :lol:) but Karin has every single male in this pic around her little finger, since she's the mighty chef in charge, after all :nod:
:bulletblue: And you've never expected Suigetsu to be a cook, have you? :lol:

:bulletorange: Naruto is the Rokudaime Hokage, and he often visits his newly found relatives for a good ramen ;P

:bulletorange: Juugo is a peaceful (on the outside) florist :meow: I believe the job suits him perfectly :aww:

:bulletorange: Nagato was let out of Itachi's Totsuka sword 'cause the Edo Tensei stopped and Nagato turned to the Light once again :la:
And since there was nothing left for him in Amegakure, he stayed with his new family in Konoha.

:bulletorange: Plus, Karin needs someone strong enough (and with a rinnegan) to help her tame the certain enraged Uchiha Sasuke, whose punishment for leaving Konoha consists of dish-washing after Naru & Kurama' festive dinners :D

:bulletorange: YES, you can totally see Itachi/Anko :eyepopping: Your eyes don't trick you, it's just Jess slightly trolling you :lol:
I'm yet to prove why I believe in this pairing's possibilities :mwahaha:

So good to see the young uzumakis (naruto, karin and nagato) in one picture. And what if sasuke tries anything funny with the dishes, such as «accidentally» break them ?

Naruto is actually the nanadaime (7th) hokage. Rokudaime (6th) was Kakashi.

Somehow naruto ending up at a ramen shop doesn't surprise me

I'm not a fan of KarinXNagato or AnkoXItachi, but I really love this pic! lol It really is great! Every bit of it! I'd be afraid of Suigetsu's cooking to be honest... especially with his love of causing trouble! lol

lol awesome, i like it !
jesterry Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2012
:rofl: Thank you :mwahaha:
Yeah, my epicness is indeed for thoughtful guys :lol:
And they never regret it :giggle:
jesterry Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2012
Thank you, my dearest!! :heart::hug:
You comments are my inspiration by themselves already!
Though I'd hate to know my art provokes such reactions as fainting :tears:^^; - this sure isn't healthy!

But as a consolation for that experience I'd make an extract with Itachi and Anko for you right away :aww: :date:

I'm SOOOOO happy and relieved to know that you also (together with Niv, of course) accept this pairing - I first and foremost fully agree with you on the fact Itachi NEEDS TO BE LOVED finally after all the pain and sufferings!
And secondly, they make such a cute pair!

Actually, the idea of their possible realationship occured to me, 1 - because of the current manga, of course (the dragon, yeah :lol:), because Kabuto stop braggin already, let Itachi save the lady!!! :la:
2 - because of the timeline I sketched - Anko is only 2 or 3 years older than him :aww:

And both of them, having experienced certain issues with Orochimaru (as much as I love him, he's still a jerk :D) and other awful events, they so deserve to be happy! :la:

Kurama also makes me laugh - I decided to include him in the image after that Kishimoto's recent drawing of Naruto on the balcony and Kurama sleeping spread across Konoha's houses :XD:

I'm glad I managed to convey the utter feeling of laughter about the whole thing :nod::aww:

But yeah, anticipating Niv's Orochimaru as a musician... :eager::eager::eager: Oh, why am I even imagining him playing harp??! :XD:

My favs are Kisame interviewing Samehada; Hidan the florist (because of Itachi and Zetsu in the back :XD:) and Shikamaru the weather teller - the cutest Shika I've ever seen!!
misspepita Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2012
Everything about this picture is perfect. PERFECT!
SpectorKnight Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2012
Actually I could sort of see Itachi/Anko. Mostly I'm just happy to see Anko. :XD: Great picture. :D

ANKO!!!! Thank God, finally a good piece of work with Anko in it~

Oh my... you just made my day. Go Karin! She's the number one ruler in this drawing. I definitely love the colors. All in all, this is the epitome of awesomeness. I bow to your logic. ^^
Umaken Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Wow! Watercolours! :D
Jugo's plant looks terribly like Zetsu :omg:
winniekay Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2012
I like it! Family and extended family. Uzumaki's, Uchiha's and anyone close to them. Are you sure Karin is making Sasuke wash dishes for leaving Konoha or leaving her for dead on the Land of Iron bridge.
nexuGL Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2012
Ah so creative! Love it <3 I do wonder a lot what would happen if Naruto found out Karin was his only living relative.
Ah poor Sasuke... well he is lucky to even be let back into Konoha, even if he is stuck washing dishes...

Good luck in the contest!
TheAddster Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Ahhh it's so colorful!!! And I love all the Uzumaki''s fabulous. :love:

HOOOooooooOOOooo ! :iconkarushifaplz:
I love this work ! I't warm, fun and very cleverly done !
I'd like to have those colored dishes, they are lovely ! All your colors are lovely ! :iconcryingrainbowsplz:
And your interpretation of the characters is just so pleasurable !:iconluvluvplz:
jesterry Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2012
:iconrainbowtearplz: Thank you so much :hug::la:
The dishes, yeah - but who's going to wash all of them for you if you had like, over9000 of them? :XD:
vya Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2012
That´s such a great idea!! xDD I really adore Karin and she´s perfect for that role! How Suigetsu is looking at her and how she´s the one that tells Sasuke what to do! :XD:
Crazeegurlhaha Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2012
Sasuke's face :icononionxdplz: and I could so see Karin pulling all the strings like this. Female domination FTW
frenetic-maker Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2012
I love how you managed to depict the characters in your own personal style and yet still make it clear who's who. Loved the festive coloring, too!
jesterry Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2012
Forgive me for not replying immediately, I've just spent some time rolling on floor laughing hysterically upon your comment, so that's it ^^;

Juugo sure needs more love - he has no current family, or clan to care for him - so I thought it would be only good to keep him in Konoha among people he grew to be close with during their time in Taka :)

It's one thing to wash dishes for a wage - and completely another to be forced to do it on a regular basis as a punishment :XD:
I think it really suits the purpose of taming the notorious Uchiha pride :XD::XD:
and Maddy is so going to accompany him there at the sink

Thank you very much, I'm glad you like it :hug:, since oh trust me, when the idea of the characters' interaction struck me I was like:
"Wow, Jess, it was indeed very thoughtful of you to inform Niv on your crazy Uchiha theories beforehand".

It means more to me more than I can express with words you see this crack!pairing as a funny one (because I'm also giggling whenever I'm picturing any sort of their interaction :giggle:)

And that musing about chakra...
Oh dear :D:D:D
The last time I was rofling so much was when I was imagining the wild jinchuuriki passion betwee Bee and Yugito - and Bee even managed to sing his rap in the process.
That's one killing scenario :D

Karin is as bossy as Tsunade, I can easily picture her fighting Naruto for becoming a Rokudaime Hokage :XD:
