I had some free time last night so to pass the time I ended up doodling another pencil Byakuya drawing. I was really happy at how it turned out so I decided to take the time and color it.
The coloring itself drove me crazy this time. With all the while glowing effects I found it REALLY difficult to color and have it not turn out weird looking. So after nearly 9 hours I finally gave up and I'm submitting it as is.... *shakes fist*
Anyways, I've always wanted to draw Byakuya in his final Bankai phase: Shukei Hakuteiken (Last sight white emperor sword) and besides the coloring issues I'm more or less happy with the final results. *drools over Byakuya*
Oh and before people start pointing it out, his head is facing more away from the viewer which is why it looks rather narrow....
Drawn completely in regular pencil (on 8.5x11 computer paper) then scanned and darkened. I then added in some color with photoshop under the pencil. Some effects were also added above the pencil.The pencil only version can be seen in my blog --> [link]
I also have a step by step tutorial showing how to color under pencil like this. --> [link]
Time: Pencil: a few hours last evening, Coloring: 9 hours.
