The meticulously detailed Naruto fan art is amazing

A new piece of naruto fan art gives a whole new meaning to the phrase hidden leaf.

Fan art, created by Tiktok user staceyaveri, does not take the form of a painting, illustration or animation. Instead, the non-traditional artwork is an incredibly detailed leaf sculpt that depicts Naruto, Sakura, and Sasuke in their younger years, running into the future with Kakashi watching over them. The artist’s TikTok account is full of other equally impressive leaf sculptures of several characters from the classic anime franchise, including Itachi, Kisame, Minato, Madara, and Jiraiya.

It’s been 20 years since the first episode of the naruto anime debuted and five years after the conclusion of Naruto Shippuden. Still, the series remains hugely popular, and as staceyaveri’s leaf sculpture exemplifies, it continues to inspire works of fan-made content. For example, popular cosplayer Izanamitan posted photos of a fiery Madara cosplay, and artist Chien Chih Kang reimagined the titular shinobi in classic Japanese Ukiyo-e art style earlier this year.

In addition, fans aren’t the only ones still churning out artwork for the franchise. naruto Creator Masashi Kishimoto recently released a series of illustrations to celebrate the anime’s 20th anniversary. They highlight several iconic moments like the fight between Orochimaru and the Third Hokage and the battle between Sasuke and Itachi. Pierrot, the studio behind the two naruto and Naruto Shippuden, also released a promotional video for the special occasion. It features reanimated versions of the anime’s highlights.
