Bleach: Cloudy Skies by keelerleah Bleach: Cloudy Skies by keelerleah
Edit: Sorry for spamming you all again with this, but I got a few messages that this wasn't showing up in some peoples devwatch inbox. I hope it works and shows up now. ^^;

Well I've recently got a random urge to do another Bleach pencil drawing. I came across a photo of the band The Gazette on my computer and the idea for this just hit me (and yes, both Byakuya and Renji's clothes and poses are referenced directly from the pic I found). The clouds were also referenced from some photos I took. I have always found drawing clouds in pencil difficult, so I didn't know if I could get them realistic or not... but I guess they turned out alright.

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.

Pencil only version (as well as a second WIP image): [link]

I also have a step by step tutorial showing how to color under pencil like this. --> [link]

Time: Pencil: approx. 3 days in my spare time, Coloring: 6 hours.
Drawn with a regular mechanical pencil.
Colored in photoshop.
Multiple references used (see above)
No Critique desired.


----

Me: Renji, you workin' that hat! *starts humming Indiana Jones theme song*
Ichigo, you're great, but crap I hate coloring your hair. So Go Bald Kurosaki!!
Rukia, you like Kalafina don't you? (referring to her dress which was inspired from one that appeared in Kalafina's Magia video)
Byakuya..... *simply stares*.... (5 minutes later) *still staring*
Byakuya: *growing nervous*
Me: MINE!!! *super epic fangirl glomp x3*
Byakuya: *flash steps away*
Me: Darn it!!! *runs after him* Let me have your babies!!!!
Rukia: Nii-sama! *goes running after him*
Ichigo:....
Renji: So you really think I look okay in this hat?
Ichigo:.....

lol, as you can tell I planned that whole conversation out ages ago as I was working *dork*
