    Why are they carrying scrolls and have their hands in hand seals?

    I hope you know that in real life, Ninjas were nothing like Naruto.

    Lol, it's a pose and mainly for aesthetics. Many martial arts form have those type of so called "hand seal" poses.

    You just watch too much Naruto.

    That's probably because they are showing fillers right now. ^^

    With Naruto I think that at any random point in time you've got about a 50% chance they're airing fillers. Ugh, I just wish he didn't turn back into that 12-year-old kid (attitude-wise) during every filler.

    You guys DO know that those poses were used by Indian Buddhists right? Japan never used them until Europe broke their isolationism. And even then, only in performances. Never in real life. But aside from the personal negativity I have towards a far east AC, some improvements that could be made are depth. They all look flat, and it looks like the far right assassin has an astronaut helmet 0-o

    The far right assassin with "supposed astronaut helm" actually has a veil in front of his hat. I watched a lot of Chinese martial arts movies in the past, and I just took the idea from them, many of the assassins wore those type of hats with veils to hide their identity and also for aesthetics.

    And as for the poses, I actually got the influence from Chinese drama movies also. Just look at Shao Jun,
    her fingers has the same "hand seal" pose. It's a popular "finger pose" if you will, lol, in Asian martial arts, at least in films.

    I know I'm quite lacking in depth, I'm working on improving on my shading. But tbh, I actually rushed through these pieces. =/
