Bleach - Modern Warriors by keelerleah Bleach - Modern Warriors by keelerleah
Oh my goodness, I am absolutely thrilled at how this one turned out. :excited: I always find group pictures extremely hard to draw and honestly, I couldn't be happier with this one.

When I started, I specifically wanted to draw them in normal street clothes and it also gave me a chance to draw Renji with his rarely seen down hair. The background drove me crazy though. Mainly because I couldn't think of what to actually draw. After completely erasing one whole side of it I just decided to go with a bunch of trees (and their swords). I wasn't sure if I really liked the look, but once the color was added I was quite pleased with the result.

Present are (bottom going up): Rukia , Byakuya (OMG he actually looks happy!! o.o), Renji, and finally Ichigo. (For those who aren't familiar with Bleach)

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

Time: Pencil: approx. 2 weeks in my spare time, Coloring: 2 days.
Drawn with a regular mechanical pencil.
Colored in photoshop.
No Critique desired.


As always, thanks for looking! :hug:

I went and looked at the lineart and dang but you did most of the work there. :wow: It certainly explains part of how you got everything so smooth. You started that way. I also greatly appreciated the coloring tutorial. (I like tutorials)

You're one heck of an artist, and I just want you to know the work you've done makes me feel good when I look on it. I sometimes grow tired of the standard carbon copies people make direct from an anime or manga. You actually liven it up, which is what makes you special.

So thanks for all the hard work. :thanks::iconthanksplz:
