Artist Turned Ninja has created a portrait of Naruto Uzumaki that manages to portray the ninja’s entire journey from social outcast to beloved Hokage.

Artist Turned Ninja has revealed a stunning portrait of Naruto Uzumaki that portrays key events from throughout the famous ninja’s life.

When viewed from afar, the image simply appears to be a portrait of the adult Naruto, as he appears in the very end of Masashi Kishimoto’s manga and during its sequel series, Boruto: Naruto Next Generations. But a closer look reveals that the portrait is actually made up of several smaller images depicting key events from Naruto’s life: him sitting on a swing alone at the beginning of the series, the iconic photo he took with Team 7 and Kakashi, lying on the ground after his climactic battle with Sasuke, and finally, his first appearance as the Hokage of Konohagakure. It’s a touching and beautiful way of revisiting the young shinobi’s journey from hated social outcast to beloved hero.

Naruto was created by Masashi Kishimoto and was first published in the pages of Weekly Shōnen Jump in 1999. The series quickly became one of the most popular manga in the world, and is now the fourth best-selling manga series of all time, with a worldwide circulation of over 250 million copies. The manga was generally regarded as one of Weekly Shōnen Jump‘s “Big Three” franchises during the industry-wide boom period of the early 2000s, alongside Eiichiro Oda’s long-running one piece and Tite Kubo’s bleach. The series continues to be incredibly popular more than twenty years after its initial release, and has been adapted into multiple anime series and movies, as well as dozens of video games. A novel set after the end of the series, entitled Naruto: Kakashi’s Story–The Sixth Hokage and the Failed Prince, was recently confirmed for an English release.

Kishimoto’s original manga concluded in 2014, but it was followed up with a sequel series, Boruto: Naruto Next Generations in 2017. The new manga focuses on Naruto’s rebellious young son, Boruto, and was initially written by Ukyo Kodachi, who previously worked on the Macross and Fate Grand/Order series. Kishimoto took over as the sequel’s head writer from volume 14 onwards.

The complete Naruto manga series is available in English from VIZ Media. Both the original Naruto anime adaptation and the post-time skip Shippuden sequel series are available for streaming on Netflix, Hulu, Crunchyroll and Funimation. Both the Boruto manga and anime are currently still on-going: new chapters are released on a monthly basis by VIZ Media, while the show can be streamed on Crunchyroll, which is providing a simulcast of the series as it airs in Japan.
