My family is still making jokes about Rukia being responsible for the massive cold spell we're experiencing in the Deep South USA (IT'S SNOWED FOUR TIMES THIS MONTH IN LOUISIANA--UNHEARD OF!) I've heard very few people complain about Kubo's art in this chapter--except for maybe a few odd ones who were stricken with bitterness and said Rukia looked like she had scholiosis or that her being seductive was "OOC" (hahahaha).
Anyway, here are some of my favorite colorings and a couple arts inspired by Kubo's chapter cover drawing. I personally think it's the loveliest and strongest he's drawn Rukia yet.
DANCE WITH SNOW WHITE
From Tumblr, land of the lovely gifs: http://tsukigamisama.tumblr.com/post/76020943832/dance-with-snow-white
A special coloring by my friend Arie. She gave me permission to post it here. I love the light effects here so much more than the generic moving snowflakes I saw in many interpretations. The reds in the background and on Snow White's lips were perfect against all those icy tones.
This one I love. The muted purples, Rukia's color-- and what a wedding dress. http://tsukishiromitsuki.deviantart.com/art/Dance-with-Snowwhite-432141707
The details in Mika's are great. Visit her dA page for a closer look.
Blue, blue, bluuuuuuue! http://neoruki.deviantart.com/art/BLEACH-567-Dance-with-Snowwhite-432147272
This art is original--the dress is Kubo's as is the model! http://ze-rofruits.deviantart.com/art/Dance-with-Snow-White-432779931
