Bleach Happy Holidays by keelerleah Bleach Happy Holidays by keelerleah
Whoot, *dances around* I actually got it done in time.... I didn't know if I'd make it or not... but either way, this will probably be my last submission for 2010. ^^

Yep, its Rukia, Byakuya, Ichigo, and Renji sitting comfortably in font of a snowy window and behind some candles and flowers... original eh? :lol: But seriously I did have great fun with this drawing, despite some difficulties (I had issues getting them all proportioned compared to each other ^^; ) .... but anyway I hope all you Bleach fans like it!

:star: Happy Holidays!! :star:

---
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 (Along with a few other new goodies) --> [link]
I also have a step by step tutorial showing how to color under pencil like this. --> [link]

Drawn with a regular mechanical pencil.
Colored in photoshop.
A few references used.
No Critique desired.

Why you don`t want to draw Byakuya\Hisana?

Simple. Hisana simply isn't one of my top favourite characters. I don't hate her, and I'm not against the pairing (after all she was Byakuya's real wife). I just enjoy drawing my favourite characters more and both Byakuya and Rukia are. These drawings of mine aren't really meant to be 'pairings', they are just a way for me to draw characters I enjoy drawing.

I may end up doing a Byakuya/Hisana painting someday though. I've pondered the idea of doing a wedding scene...

I have a question about your process. (You pic is amazing, don't get me wrong. :D )

When you're still in the stages of outlineing their bodies and the background, do you draw them as just plain body figures, like, outlines? Or do you draw the clothes over... er. I don't even know how to ask this!! LOL. I don't even know how to draw it. I usually draw the bodies, and then the clothing, but it never turns out right. I guess I was just wondering, 'cause my style is still developing, and I just need a bit of direction. ^^;

Thankies. :bucktooth:

Gorgeous work! :clap: The lighting is so pretty! It's really neat how you do this too because even though you colored it in Photoshop, it still looks 100% traditionally finished. If I ever get good enough, I'd like to try my hand at that tutorial. Anyway, the coloring is really beautiful but your works always are :D

I am in love with Renji's hair. Almost have the urge to tug on it since it's so long. I can already imagine his reaction...
Me: *tug tug*
Renji: ZAMBIMARU!
Me: *runs*
