[GIFT] Hairpin Arrows  
Wasn't intending on entering the contest, but I still wanted to do something as a gift for Deb and for all the faithful IshiHime fans. ♥ These two aren't just a side-pairing for me, they've always been my Bleach OTP.

The only reason it's so dark was so the bow and the effects would come out looking half decent. In case it's not obvious, Orihime's hairpins are replacing the arrows as the projectiles here. *has the wierdest ideas*.

This is just gorgeous! That's not an expression one sees on Uryuu's face very often but it suits him, especially with his hair. I love the way they are combining their powers here. I've imagined them doing something similar in the manga. I know Orihime has to learn to reach her full power potential on her own, but it's fun to imagine them finding a way for them to actually blend their powers and for them to fire Tsubaki together, with him getting an additional push from Ishida's spirit arrow. ;)

Also, I'm totally grooving on their clothes. They both look fantastic.

They look like dancers, it's so dynamic! It's wonderful!
(and, as someone who participates in the contest I'm really glad that this isn't going to participate *sweats* I'm mean, aren't I?)
From those I've seen it's the best fanart entry/gift for Deebie 'til now (in my opinion)

I concur there :_D (I'm mean too, sorry!!!) DB would beat us to death with this :____D

I'm digging the clothes here; Ishida looks awesome in a waistcoat, and the detail/embroidery on Orihime's dress is amazing.

Now that's just AMAZING! The concept is as original as it is romantic, the characters look just like themselves (how I've been craving timeskip fanart...!) and the coloring seems professional! The lines are so carefully placed and the different hues play off each other so well, it's as if the piece sprung up fully developed, instead of reaching this point gradually and methodically. It's a pity you didn't enter the contest; you would have won.

CHRIS! T______T

That has to be my favorite IshiHime drawing from you yet and that's saying something. Thank you so much. I'm waking up here and still groggy from napping a migraine off but I have to say that I'm ALL BETTER NOW--coconut cake and arts like these made my birthday amazing.

And it was so gracious of you to not enter the contest for a prize because you would so kick ass with anything you entered! XD I could gush about this piece but like enisy said it's just such a perfect, natural looking piece. If Sensei ever gives us Ishida and Orihime using their powers together in the manga, I doubt he could do with as much love as you have here.


Six years since I met you Chris. And ten years of Bleach. Wow.

Well, he has just kick our asses right now xDDD (and I can't be more glad about it!!!) KYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!

*is having a seizure*

Now Debbie, see Chris art while listening this song.


I almost died, the music gives it even more power (is that possible??) to that drawing *_*

*flees happily*

Ohmygosh, this is so hot and badass and adorable, Kubo needs to make this canon. I've always wondered what their powers combined would be like.
Hidden Gems: Hime OMG YAYhidden_gems on November 20th, 2010 02:53 pm (UTC)
Oh wow, Chris. Wow, wow, WOW!! I don't know where to start. The quality of your work (we might be used to it, but I can't not mention it), the dynamic pose, the way their clothes simply ROCK, the awesome idea you had about combining their powers...

Wow. This is my favourite IshiHime drawing of yours as well <3

That is too awesome!

Too awesome for words!!!

*Breathes in*

Character design is just fantastic. You've drawn them so beautifully with nice expressions to match the whole mood and scene. And do you realize how how your Ishida is? He's burning there! And Orihime is so stunning. I love the look in her eyes, just dazzling really. Your sense of style is quite impressive too. The clothes on them look really great.

I actually had a theory of them combining their strength in battle. The two of them can attack with spiritual projectiles (Ishida-arrows/Orihime-Tsubaki) and I think their abilities can compliment one another.

I love your idea of their combined powers. And your art style is just so great... They look so alive here. <3333

Thanks for sharing your art with us *_______*

So beautiful! ♥

I am not a fan of this pairing, but it still feels great, the idea is precious and the clothes are really great.
Only Ishida's face is a bit off. I like this particular expression itself, but it doesn't really feel much like Ishida. Maybe if the mouth was a little less wide...

Maybe if the mouth was a little less wide...

It's odd to see Ishida smiling, isn't it? XD I think this is what he'd look like if he were really down to the soul happy--not smiling way big but just contentedly like so.

I hope Kubo shows him smiling in canon one day--a real happy smile. I'd just melt.
pony_rocks: pic#84544780pony_rocks on November 21st, 2010 12:27 am (UTC)
Well, odd it is - he smiles so little. I wish he had more reasons to smile in manga.
Yet, I still think there's something a bit off with his jaw and cheek and that should he smile like this in canon, it would look slightly different.

OMG this is AMAZING!! The quality is one that reminds me of a movie! I'm so envious of your cell-like shading abilities and how they naturally float there as if they were filled with life. This is the epitome of what I think the Ishihime dynamic expresses. I love it times a thousand!!

I'm seeing this drawing while listening "Free Fall" by In Flames, the power boost of inpsiration that I'm feeling in this moment is just beyond this world. Like this art, this is just beyond this world DB san.

I'm speechless, I'm amazed and overhelmed, yeah I'm such a fan form them, even if I multiship Ishida and that I enjoyed all of his ships (cracky or not) ISHIHIME gets the crown forever and ever. There is no ship able to surpass it, not even beating it, period.

What I do like the most? ALL!

The cell shading technique, the way you work with the illumination. The position of them with that natural flow and the perspective in it, Ishida's Ginrei Kojaku and Orihime's hairpins. The mere idea of them working together and combining their powers (Love for your weirdest ideas! let them out more often! *_*) I'm having my own mountain of ideas about it. I've been thinking about and ishiHime tag team from long ago, not only with Orihime using her shield in the same way Hacchi used his but also using Tsubaki to attack and giving ishida's attacks more power. That would be epic. And Ishida who has the hability to fight with the power of his surroundings... well, he could bring more power to Orihime's Shun Shun Rikka *_______*

Aah! the ideas I'm having by looking at this. I love their expressions and the fact that they are holding hands in that way, you can feel the trust in each other, the support and the wish to win and fight together.

I'm in love *_______________________*

<3333333 throwing those arrow pins directly into my heart *melts* :DDDD. So sweet. I love Ishida's and Orihime's expression of total concentration, happiness and harmony between them. Their outfits are made out of win too ^__^.

Whoa, this is super awesome.
Jynx: spazzjynxed_keyboard on November 21st, 2010 01:26 am (UTC)
God this is gorgeous. The concept is lovely and the actual image, stunning! ;A; So pretty.
Alexa-chan: our hearts phone spreadalexaclyne on November 22nd, 2010 01:07 am (UTC)
*squeals* Fighting together, how sweet <3

I like the idea. xD And I like how you emphasized the bow's glow by darkening the BG. Good good. ;D And Ishida-kun's expression, so fitting of him. :D

Us contestants are lucky this wasn't an entry. It'd beat us for sure. xD
