Bleach - Toshiro Hitsugaya- by keelerleah Bleach - Toshiro Hitsugaya- by keelerleah
Commissioned for :iconladyoftheseireitei: of the Bleach character Toshiro Hitsugaya.

I have always found drawing Hitsugaya difficult (which is probably why I don't draw him often), but over all I'm pleased at the outcome of this one. The frozen/iced lilies are my favourite feature (that was a request by the client).

---
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: 16 days, Coloring: 5 hours.
Multiple references used.
Background inspiration/reference: [link]
Drawn with a regular mechanical pencil.
Colored in photoshop.
No Critique desired.

Ahhhh!  You did one for Hitsugaya!  Yaya!!  This is so beautiful, the colors, the amount of detail!!  This winter scene combined with the other seasons you did with Byakuya, Ukitake, and Kyoraku make such a fabulous set!!  I'd kill to see them on a set of plates or art canvas prints.  I have one porcelain mini-plate for Bleach...I wish the studio would've released more, or would pick up outstanding fan-art like yours!

With the amount of artistic talent you have, please don't be afraid to try drawing Toushiro again, I think you did a wonderful job here!

I know! I hate doing his hair! I don't think I have done one remotely decent photo of him in all of my sketchbooks...

And here is my second favorite guy of the 13 Court Guard Squads. GAH! I love you Toshiro!!! And I don't care if you get mad and say "That's Captain Hitsugaya." I will ignore you!!!

Oh wonderfully done. Truly exemplary work.

Beautiful... though I have to wonder: where did he get those clothes? The others make sense cuz they're all some kind of nobility, but I haven't seen anything that suggests that a captain's salary can cover that kind of quality...

Meh. Whatever. It's still beautiful!
