Bleach Today- Ichigo Kurosaki by keelerleah Bleach Today- Ichigo Kurosaki by keelerleah
I started drawing this picture over a year ago. It remained unfinished until last night when I randomly came across it during some cleaning. Deciding to finally finish it, I completed sketching all those stupid little rocks, then scanned and colored it.

Although, while I was coloring it in photoshop, my computer decided to stop working for a moment and I lost nearly 5 hours of work. *Cries* I managed to save a .jpg version of what I had done but the PSD file was gone. >.> So what you see here is a re sized version of that .jpg file. I retouched a few spots but even so, there are a few things that bug me... so please no critique again. I cried over this enough last night.

---
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.

Reference used for the pose, background, and clothing--> [link]

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

No Critique desired.

---Others in the Bleach today series---



Oh, and I now also have a gallery at pixiv, stop by if you want. ^^ --> [link]

I look at this, and I love the detail, but not what you are detailing. You give the shinigami (soul reapers, whatever) those noble gardens, Ichigo is sitting above a river in the slums. It's not right.

O.O Sugoi!!! I am so impressed that I-I don't even know how to describe it! You are really amazing! From its thumbnail view, it pretty looks like a realistic Ichigo and upclose is even much much better, or I should say its one of the best artworks I have ever seen in my life :)

So hate when the computer stops and you loose hours of work. I try to save every time do a new section, however hours go by too fast.
Auto save should come on these computers, with an undo option if your not happy (like a revert to when file last opened).
Apple and Micosoft.... this is a good idea somebody, are you listening!

Great work, you are awesomely talented!:heart::heart::heart:
