Bleach: Pride and Purity by keelerleah Bleach: Pride and Purity by keelerleah
Ah Byakuya and Rukia Kuchiki... these two will forever remain my favourite Bleach characters (and I will never tire of Drawing Byakuya).

I'm not completely happy with this one (some things really bug me a lot) but I figured after spending all this time working on it that I might as well post it. ^^;

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. 1 week in my spare time, Coloring: 7 hours.
Drawn with a regular mechanical pencil.
Colored in photoshop.
No Critique desired.

As always, thanks for looking! :hug:

*stares, slack jawed* Oh my gosh. I clicked your link and looked at other stuff of yours. (which I'd seen before elsewhere on the internet and had no idea it was you.) I thought it was more detailed work of Kubo himself! Your work is absolutely amazing. I use the same things, printer paper and a mechanical pencil, and I could never in my wildest dreams draw like you. Just...wow. :wow: :love:
