Hello, everyone! It's been a while, hasn't it?
Haha, skipping introductions, this here is my contest entry for
. She's trying to form a team for her Naruto Next Generation character, Shakino Nara. Lemme tell ya, designing this character was a pain. Dx I was stuck in artist block forever, and I kept changing what I wanted her to look like. But finally, I'm happy with the outcome! Warning: Some of the information provided may only apply is *E-vayuses her in the series, and the description might be kind of long..I am very descriptive when it comes my characters.

: Genin Background
Chouko Akimichi is stated to become the 17th head of the Akimichi clan, in the footsteps of her father, Chouji Akimichi. Unfortunately, after Chouko was born, her mother had mysteriously disappeared. It has been heard that after the birth of their daughter, Chouji and his girlfriend (at the time) had gotten into a fight, and in the end, her mother walked out and never returned. Chouko does try to connect with her father about the situation, but Chouji refuses to; he won't even tell her who she was. This controversy has had a negative effect on Chouko during her pre-nin days. When she was younger, kids would tease her about how she was conceived out of wedlock, or how she had inherited the "fat gene". This has caused Chouko to become very insecure. Chouji would tell her he understood completely--he knew what it was like to be teased for something that couldnt be helped. From that day on, Chouko decided that she wouldnt let the other kids get to her, and strives to make her father proud.
Chouko is kind, polite, and a very caring person. She is loyal, generous, and is willing to stop whatever she
s doing to help someone in need. Like her father Chouko also loves to eat. While Chouji prefers BBQ, Chouko is a big fan of sea food.. Chouko also loves to cook, especially for friends and family, and she'll usually bring lunch for her team on a regular basis. She's the type of girl that will always try to make you feel better after a rough day! She admires Shakino as a teammate, and best friend.
Chouko can use all of the calories she eats and convert them into chakra. Due to her size, Chouko is considered small for an Akimichi, but on the team she is known as the "strength" or "power". Though she isnt as fast as most, she is still improving on her taijutsu. Chouko has also learned Chouji's super open Hand Slap technique , though she is still having trouble enlarging herself. Techniques that Chouko has mastered is the Human Bullet Tanks (Otherwise known as the "Human Boulder"; she still has a bit of trouble controlling it, though...), Partial Multi-size technique, and the Super Open hand Slap. Unfortunately Chouko still must consume pills in order to preform some of her moves. She wants to learn the full Multi-Size technique, but Chouji will not teach her until she's older. Also, Chouko can take the Akimichi clan Three Colored Pills, which increases strength, speed, and stamina for a short time. Since these are used as a last resort (because they take the body fat reserves and converts it into chakra and takes a major toll on the body) but we all knew about that from Chouji, didn't we? xD
Some fun facts about Chouko:
-Chouko can also distinguish which plants are good to eat and which are not.
-Her best friends are Akiko
and Shakino Nara
-Is never caught dead without a bag of chips; usually keeps a spare hidden in scrolls.
-She has a major crush on Akiko's older brother Jenko
, but will not admit it.
-She sometimes helps Shakino with babysitting Esin and Navi, even though she doesn't really like kids.
-Dislikes Isamashii and usually makes this known to Shakino, trying to serve as some kind of good conscience. But of course it never works...
-Sucks at taijutsu but is interested in genjutsu.
I based Chouko's design off of Chouji's shippuden outfit. I even gave her Chouji's old scarf to wrap around her waist and the signature bandages. I also gave her fluffy brown hair, which also resembles Shippuden Chouji.
I really don't know why I gave her blue eyes, though. Those might change in the future.
Alright, so that's it! I'll probably be uploading a few more sketches of Chouko in the future, I just wanted to get this posted before I forgot. Hope you like! <3Oh, and one more thing
I didn't mean to draw Chouko this thin. As you can see I struggle with body types lol. I have other sketches that have her chubbier than this. I've also decided that even though she is an Akimichi she likes to keep herself in some sort of shape because, y'know, girls sometimes care about their looks. Makes sense? xD
