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)
