Fanart - Ichigo (disappearing clothes edition) + Rukia and Sode no Shirayuki  
*waves* Hey all! This is my first post to this awesome comm, though I've been lurking and dropping the occasional comment when I can. I was hoping my first post could be with an entry for Debbie's Ishida b-day contest, but I didn't have time to get past the sketching stages for it. :( Ah well, now I've got a year to prepare for the next one, heh.

But yeah, here's 2 pieces of fanart I whipped up today... for some reason I got the sudden urge to do some natural media work (since I mostly do digital stuff nowadays) and ended up with these 2 inked drawings.

Hope you enjoy 'em. I inhaled unhealthy amounts of permanent marker/Sharpie fumes in the process, so you'd better! xD Got sketches of Orihime + Tatsuki, Ishida, and Ryuuken + Isshin in the works as well, hopefully I'll get around to inking them soon (plus there won't be nearly as much black in them as in these pieces, lol).

(You'll never hear me complaining about how often Kubo rips up Ichigo's clothes. xD)

You've done a great job.
(Completely know the fumes I tend to smell like Copics all day when I work with them ;))

Thank you. =]
(Oh man, Copics are so sexy but I can't afford 'em. I think I'd take their alcohol-ish smell over raw Sharpie or that Prismacolor funk any day, though.)

Wow! Great job! You have a really unique style, and you've translated it very well to the dynamic energy that Ichigo and Rukia have. I very much like how Tensa Zangetsu looks.

Also, speaking as a n00b who knows nothing about art, gosh those pens look fancy.

:D The slight texture on the blade of Ichi's sword was actually an accident, but I was like "cool! I'll pretend I did that on purpose." ^^;

The Micron Pigma is a really nice pen as far as disposables go, but I paired it with some generic permanent markers for filling in... so half fancy, half not.

Wonderful pieces. Very nice ink-work ^_^. I enjoyed the cross thatching technique while filling up with the markers. I hope you didn't get too high XDDDD. I know I get my share of fumes when I ink as well lol.

Thanks for the kind words! I think my favorite fill to do was Rukia's hakama, where the hatching kind of follows the folds.

I only got a little woozy, but sometimes that high actually improves one's art. xD

I do love it when artists remember to draw Ichi's lovely abs. :3

Mmmmmmmmh, abs. ♥
ExMachinar4r3truffle on November 20th, 2009 12:34 am (UTC)
In a weird way, the Ichigo drawing happened precisely because I wanted to draw him half-naked, haha... especially those abs. xD

My artistic motivations are lofty indeed.

Oh, I love sharpies--they're all I can afford and I makes lots of poster art for kiddies. I love the sharpie smell too because I'm a thrill seeking mad woman!

I love your Shirayuki there and how you made Ichigo's face look so vulnerable. And nice patterns with the black sharpie ink on the folds. <3

Thanks for the offering! I'm so happy you've brought something today! I was have a craving for some Ichigo and Rukia as a matter of fact.

(boo no chapter this week)

I'm jealous - I wish I could enjoy Sharpie smell... maybe it's an acquired thing, like black coffee and wine. xD

And yea, the withdrawal on weeks without new chapters always gets to me... got the urge to do something Bleach-related, glad I could share it with you all. =3

very nice!!
But... please forgive me for saying this.. but... is Rukia's ear like that?
If its that way.. then forgive me. Btw, I love the way you draw Shirayuki. Still elegant. =3

Ahhhh, thanks for pointing that out - I need to fix that. ^^; Sometimes as I'm finishing a drawing, I'll get caught up in all these other details and miss something completely obvious. Gotta make it smaller and add the inner-ear details...

Such marvelous lineart!!! I wish I could keep mine so clean. Your works display your skill with anatomy and form as well. Great job!

Clean beautiful lines, your style is very awesome!
