Naruto no keki

How many of you recognise this guy? I'm feeling rather not with-it as I had no idea who Naruto was. I don't mind so much not knowing the kids' characters, but this one was for someone my age!
I'm quite pleased with the way this turned out, it looks sufficiently like the real character for my liking. Bit mischievous. To make the 2D pic pop out, I added a layer of 3D hair to give it a little texture and some folds on the bandanna.
I was at a loss for what to do around the base, but when in doubt, use an extension of the main feature. So I used the idea of the bandanna and dusted it over in silver to make it look a lil snazzy and dangerous like the Naruto pix I found online. Wonder if he's like hero-dangerous or naughty-streetkid dangerous.
