Bleach - Byakuya: Looking Back by keelerleah Bleach - Byakuya: Looking Back by keelerleah
I know, dumb title. ^^;

Well I tried a slightly more cartoony style this time, which was a nice change of pace. I actually found this style much harder to paint then the usual realism I do, but over all I am more or less pleased with the outcome. However I am aware that a few things could be improved upon, so no critique please.

Painted for myself as a birthday present. (which was yesterday)
Painted completely in Photoshop.
Pose referenced from a pic (not of Byakuya) I found somewhere online.
Time: 2 to 3 months working in my spare time.
No critique please

Note: I am now on Twitter (mostly art updates) so if your a member feel free to add me if you wish. --> [link]

If you liked this one you may find the following worth looking at. ^^



I don't think I'll make this 'style' into another series (oh the horror) but who knows? :dead:

I don't think it's a dumb title at all! You don't have to see it in the literal way. I got the feeling he's looking back in the sense of remembering his past, maybe thinking of Hisana or his parents. :-) It's beautiful either way...
