Bleach - Shunsui Kyoraku - by keelerleah Bleach - Shunsui Kyoraku - by keelerleah
Commissioned for :iconladyoftheseireitei: of the Bleach character Shunsui Kyoraku.

My first time drawing Shunsui. I was requested to dress him up in a pinkish/red kimono with lots of trees and a sunset... so I think I accomplished everything. ^^

My favourite part is how the sunset turned out. When I was sketching and shading it I didn't know if it would work (or turn out awful) but I'm happy with the result.


Next is Hitsugaya! ^^

---
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.

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

Time: Pencil: 8 days, Coloring: 5 hours.
Multiple references used.
Drawn with a regular mechanical pencil.
Colored in photoshop.
No Critique desired.

this picture is gorgeous and you did a great job on capturing shunsui's laid back and carefree yet playful nature with his expression and body language, and the background is stunning

Gorgeous work! I love that sunset (or sunrise?) The background is exquisite. Of course, I'm not familiar with the character but his kimono looks cool. The flowers in the foreground are a lovely touch :D Such pretty trees!

*struggles to not faint from the awesomeness of it* ....I can do this...I can...Yes! I can! *faints anyway*......*is revived* Aw, man, I failed....not that I mind too much. ;)

I love it! The trees and sunset are so well done. I feel as if I'm really watching a sunset with Shunsui!!

I look forward to the Hitsugaya one! Any chance of a Yumichika one coming??

Keep it up!
