Dragon Year 2012 by beckitach Dragon Year 2012 by beckitach
Happy New Year, everyone~ Welcome to 2012!:iconveryexcitedplz:

It's the Dragon year in China and Japan, that's why there is the dragon with Naruto (why Naruto?Well...I just realized I haven't drawn any Naruto arts for half a year, and I think it's time to do so XP)

This piece is a mix of Chinese paper-cut arts and Japanese manga style, and I think they turned out to be a good combination.~:iconraepfaceplz:

Hope you like it!

------------
Naruto's style is from my earlier work:

Happy New year! Awesome artwork. Though the Year of the Dragon doesn't actually start until the end of the month.

Yup you're right. Japanese New Year is on the 1st of January. It used to go with the Chinese New Year time but they switched to Gregorian calendars (like we have) instead of going by lunisolar calendars which the Chinese (and a lot of others) do. Actually the Chinese New Year always starts on the second new moon after the winter solstice (December 21st). So that means that this year it starts on January 23rd.

Oh and if you want to learn what Lunisolar calendars are like click here: [link]
