Bleach Egyptian Halloween: Byakuya and Rukia by keelerleah Bleach Egyptian Halloween: Byakuya and Rukia by keelerleah
Bleach Halloween 2012: Egyptian Costumes/Theme: Byakuya, Rukia, and the Seaweed Ambassador!

A little fan service this year, eh? :giggle:

Well I wasn't originally planning to do a new Halloween painting again this year, but with recent events in the manga Byakuya has been on my mind a lot lately. And despite my bouts of tears, I felt inspiration strike again.

I pondered many different costumes this year and finally settled on an Egyptian theme. I've always been fascinated by ancient Egypt (I loved learning about it as a child) and the idea of drawing my favourite characters in something I loved so much really got me excited (and the idea of dressing Byakuya up in gold and transparent silk helped too!)
The outfits themselves aren't what you'd call traditional Ancient Egyptian costumes, as I wanted to include my own 'flare' to them, but over all I'm very happy with how it turned out.

:pumpkin: Hope you all have a safe and happy Halloween! :pumpkin:

Byakuya: *blank stare* What are you looking at?
Me:*evil grin* Guess.
Me: Can I lick you?
Byakuya: O.O

Time: 8 days.
Painted in photoshop.

I also have loved Ancient Egypt from a young age (in 3rd grade I told anyone who asked that I wanted to be an archeologist in Egypt) and Byakuya is one of my favorite characters so this combined them and I love it.

inset he and Kep like in a coma and close to death, but not dead yet
AngelERenoir Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2012  Student Digital Artist
(Spoilers) I'm not sure if you heard, but Byakuya is ALIVE!!! Squad 4 did a marvellous job patching him up. He barely survived, and is in a coma, but he's alive!!! :happybounce::squee:

That being said, I love all the details in the outfit. And the pillars in the background? Awesome!

I also love how you smuggled the Seaweed Ambassador there, like it totally belonged there. Well, it does, but it ruins the serious mood a little. Where's Chappy, though? Did I miss Chappy or is Chappy not in the picture?
