Gaara can do everything with sand. There isn't anything he can't do! Good work, btw!^^

Is it the power to turn humans into sand, or the power to create animated human figures out of sand? Because I personally don't think the latter is out of the question with Gaara. :P

...AWESOME. And just for the record, I think he probably could do that, if he practiced and gained lots of skill. It would be like making sand clones, sort of. =P

Gaara and Michael Myers could be twins! In fact, he's who I thought it was until I took a closer look, It's very good. And congratulations on the DD for this. It's very well deserving of this status.

i am not a fan of the anime or manga but i do like the garra character and this is bad ass, but i don't think i know the metaphor cuz i'm stupid (or haven't watched the anime/read the manga(

I don't know what the metaphor is because I don't know who Gaara is, but this picture is really cool. I love the ancient warriors surrounding him the most. Very cool layout and theme.

While Gaaras face and body posture look a tid bit awkward, the sand and the characters in it look amazing! Solid and yet fluid, a perfect mold of the two!

*suppressing fangirlish squeal because a picture of my favourite manga character just got a DD*

This is a really awesome picture, even without the fan art element. That came out wrong, I believe, but I hope you'll understand what I meant. ^^;

Congrats on the DD! :clap:

(and now, because of MLT, I am now going to go on a Gaara :+fav:ing tangent. Thank you, dA. :sarcasticclap:)

Looks pretty amazing. I like how you took a more realistic approach instead of anime/manga. I also really like how you made the 'sandpeople', and how they are being merged into the swirling movement that is characteristic for this piece of art.
