I'm going to start with my own feelings and I have so many of them. I mean really. It's Team Gai- who were the most adorable of all the children- and their sensei, meeting their future rivals from across the way as children. And they are all exactly as I would imagine them being, in character.

My favorite part definitely has to be Gai. Of all the cuteness and the in-character childish antics, Gai fits in wonderfully. His pose is perfect and the way he's looking at Lee- approving as always- is wonderful.

Now onto the actual critique. I like the shading and the gradients you used on each character. I get the feeling they were done individually, rather than as a whole however, as the color change makes me confused on what kind of lighting there is. It's as if they're in a rainbow spectrum. Like there's an orange light on Tenten, but a green light on Naruto. A red light on Neji, a purple one on Sasuke. Does that make sense? This might have even been intentional, I'm not sure.

There's a lot of good poses here- Gai, Neji, Lee, Kakashi and Naruto are all just fine- but Tenten and Sasuke look a little stiff. It looks a little like Sasuke is leaning forward- just a little- and it makes him look a little weird. Putting the foot farthest away from us out and bringing his farthest hand up might fix it.

Tenten's pose could be fixed by showing a little more bend in her torso or pushing her farthest leg out a little more- to show she's running quickly, rather than just turning and making her swing. Now if that's what you were GOING for, than putting her leg out a little more would still help and turning her shoulders a little more to show her movement. She'd have a bend in both her arms to have the stick-sword right above her head like that, unless she had it at an angle intending to hit Naruto from the side.

Sakura also looks a bit stiff, mostly because she seems so relaxed even when Kakashi is bending down and 'struggling' to hold Lee back. Her arms and her torso should be a little more tense- perhaps bent a little- to help her stay in Kakashi's arms while he fights off her overly romantic suitor.

Poor Lee. ;u; You'll get her one day.

I'm not going to go into detail on the background because I hate the color orange and that's probably the only reason I don't like it. I love the coloring book clouds mixed in with the yellow cloud shadows, those are definitely not a problem. They're precious and fitting.

I realize I overexplained a lot of this and probably shouldn't have, but despite it all, I actually really like this piece and found it really, really adorable. I had been wanting to see a piece like this for awhile and even contemplated doing it myself. You've done a good job and I wouldn't critique it if I didn't think it was worth the extra effort. <3

Keep working hard~

I think, this picture really good, but, if you put some emotions again (like tenten's angry, Lee's love, and Gai's twinkling teeth), I am sure it will make your drawing look very cute and alive enough. Also, Gai. Is he try to be cool in front of Lee although Lee don't look at him? Beacause, it makes me confuse, for whom did Gai show his coolness?
Well, tahts all I want to tell about. I like Naruto's expressions, though, plus Neji and Sasuke starring contest.
more over than that, You're great.

sorry if you angry for my critique. please don't be mad.

And of course Gai has to be supporting his pupil and like always Kakashi is pulled into there!

The normal day in Konoha: Lee chasing Sakura with kisses, Sauske and Neji glaring and showing that they never learned what a proper sentence is, Tenten getting mad and beating Naruto to pulp!!!!
