Actualy it has... We have clear examples of Karin's back and a toad belly + a sold wall example.
It has never been stated that Amaterasu burns quicker when the user focuses on a target for a longer time. What has been shown however, is that although Amaterasu can burn anything, it does so relatively slowly.
Not Amaterasu. ENTON Amaterasu. 1 opens in your face and is focused the other does not. For instance Gaara has no sand at his eyes and those would be burned to a crips before he can take any actions.
Gaara has already been shown to be able to block Ametarasu with his sand. If Sasuke decides to keep on Amaterasuing away at Gaara, he can just create more sand. Who will last longer I wonder...
That dude was trying to capture him and not fly away. Sasuke can fly away prep Kirin and shoot it down very fast. Also vs Deidara he had the sand in the desert... Bid diference.
And Gaara has already been shown to be adequately equipped to deal with fast flying targets - Deidara anyone?
Doton is EARTH. Handseals or not its irrelevant. Jutsus can be done with or with no handseals. Jutsus replicate the properties of the element they are created in. Fire burns, wind blows and so on. If jutsu X has the same identical properties (chemical and so on) with water then that IS water. Also we already got Chidori making a huge hole in sand... There is no diference from real elements to made up ones.
Again, never been stated that Sand is doton. In fact, there is a lot of evidence against it (someone posted a load of it a while ago if I recall). Gaara doesn't even use the hand signs for Doton to use his sand.
No. Sasuke is going to Amaterasu Gaara's face off.
That said, Sasuke would probably do better sticking to Susanoo and his regular techniques than Ametarasu against someone like Gaara.
Amaterasu burns slow? NO. It burned close to instantly trough the belly of a frog that spits fire and trough solid wall. That is FOCUSED Amaterasu. It also burns trough fire itself. The databook even states it burns with the heat of the sun.

Now considering the non-focused one obviously does not have that heat the databook was probably refering to the focused one that was able to burn something design to survive fire close to instantly and then trough solid wall. There is NO slow.
Kirin blew off a mountain completly. I really don't care what shield Gaara puts up as it is going to be obliterated. Also Gaara has no time to put his shields up (move sand) before Kirin strikes. Do you have any idea how fast a lighting bolt moves? If not google it but it moves way faster then you can blink.
