Fanart Prince and Princess Birthday Contest  
Edit: Updated with lines cleaner. Still didn't get it colored. Darn it! >_>

[The Same Song]Same Song

I always have trouble with this part--coding and all, but I hope you enjoy! Happy Birthday to the beloved character, Ishida Uryuu. I wish I could have colored it in time, but I really wanted to focus on precision this year. I'm sorry, Debbie. I'll have it colored by Thanksgiving(?)!

Oh, I'm so glad you posted! I love seeing your art, and this is just as gorgeous as always. I really like the clothing design here; I wish Kubo would take a page from your book and put Ishida in boots! (He probably won't, but at least we can dream.) Great title for this. Now if only Orihime will hear the music. ;)

Boots ftw!! lol I really appreciate your kind words. I love drawing the human figure and dressing it up. I wish I could have drawn Inoue's back, too. I have an idea of how the back of the dress would look. =3 Someday...

The title was inspired by Ewan McGregor's "Your Song" from Moulin Rouge. So much of that movie inspires me.

Drawing people playing instruments is always really hard (imo) because you have to focus on the hands a lot, but you did it really well.

Thank you so much! The hands and the instruments alone monopolized all my time with this picture. I did have to use several references to get an idea of how the hands should look since I don't play either of these instruments.

Wonderful!!! You're so talented!! I love it! Can't wait to see it colored, but it's perfect even in black and white, we can see the lines better this way. Great!

Thank you so much! I do like to give people the opportunity to see the plain sketches before coloring. I tend to like them better--more character I think.

Oooh, they look so cute and as Verduister san said, it's really hard to draw people playing instruments <3 GOOD JOB as always dear *_* Ishida's clothes design is very good! I loved it! and Ori's dress is lovely too but Ishida's prince's clothes are the best <3

You are so sweet and kind! Thank you so much for your encouraging words!

Can I just point out that Ishida's face is absolutely perfect? Because I really feel someone should point out how perfect Ishida's face is. Could have actually mistaken it for Kubo's art. Goooood job.

Plus, clothes porn, mmmmmh. ;)

I think the instruments you chose go very well with the both of them, as well. Uryuu does strike me as a violin type, and Orihime as a flute one. Though admittedly, I'd be hard-pressed to tell you why... *ponders*

DO ET! <3

XDD Thank you so much! Ishida is really the only character I've ever just spent time doodling to the point where his face comes out halfway decent(which is my favorite feature of his design).

But to be honest, this is the first drawing I've done in a couple years that I felt was halfway decent. I guess I've had quite the extended art block? But I really appreciate the feedback.

Testing myself artistically is why I've dedicated myself to doing this contest every year. Bleach in general has made me a better artist than I would have been without knowing it.

This is the dearest drawing ever and I love it so much. I've always thought TOO that Ishida would play violin and that Hime would play flute (I play flute).

Ishida's face here... omg, it's adorable. <3333333

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! I wish the scan looked like the actual drawing, but I'm so glad you like it! I remembered from a whiiile back at Bleach Asylum talking about what instruments they would play. It seemed so romantic to me for them to play together as prince and princess. =)

I've finished cleaning the lineart for it, but I'm a little nervous about getting it colored by the end of the day(haz to work). Would you be interested in coloring it sometime down the road?

I'd love to. Finding time is the thing. I think I'll have time eventually. But stuff keeps happening.

<3 I love coloring.

Ahh...no sweat. I worked on coloring it some, but I couldn't even get half done. =( I have a nice long break for Thanksgiving, though. I expect to do it before then.

They make beautiful music together. It looks really pretty already, I can't wait to see it colored ^___^. <3333
luminous85: Worryluminous85 on November 19th, 2013 04:08 am (UTC)
Thank you very much! I can't wait to color it. I just haven't been able to find the time. Gah! It's about half colored at best right now.
