So hem I don't know if you remember this. In fact I hope ou forgot about this picture xD because I suck so much, I wasn't even able to draw a totally new thing for ya D':
BUT even when I sketched this 4 months ago, I had only you in my mind. Because thanks to you, I really got into Bleach, and could feel my most incredible anime moment of my whole life, WHILE WATCHING THIS FOURTH MOVIE .
This picture just exploded all my records. Longest time sketching (10h+) to get EVERYTHING excactly as I had it in my mind. I have simply no regrets. It looks plain awesome. Longest time linearting (DAMN WHY HIHIO ZABIMARU AND THE SKULL CLAD IN THE SAME PICTURE !!!! DAAAAAAMN I'M SUCH A DUMB PERSON, WHY CAN'T I THINK TO FIND IDEAS !!), and quite long time to color everything.
One of the only complete background (I submitted alone, because well, Zabimaru hides the most part of it) I have for my drawings and yeeaaaaahhh so many experimentations ! I was still a beginner with SAI, so hem I played around with SO MANY THINGS (mostly on the skull clad, which looks epic. There's just that ~dust effect I couldn't get exactly, but it's still fine.)
Background story for this ? Well, when I watched Bleach Jigoku Hen, when Ichigo ~received that Skull Armor, I randomly said to myself : "woooo this skull armor and Zabimaru, and Ichigo becomes the Ultimate Skull Warrior !! .............................wait............" and this is how it started.
THEN why Renji and Rukia ?! I had to change my phone wallpaper, so I decided Renji had also to change his. SO WHY NOT HIS ZANPAKUTO WITH ICHIGO HAHAHA //bricked
And Rukia being like WTF you doing.....srsly...
Then WHILE drawing I tried to stay more or less logical (in this quite non-sense haha), and...since Ichigo was in Bankai state, his reiatsu would be the black and red one. So. Hem. On Zabimaru too, I guess......WELL those little Kuroi Getuga flames on it look awesome as well
And where's Tensa Zangetsu ? Rukia is keeping it, since Renji is taking a photo. Logical.
So I am sorry for not being there for you as much as I would like to. You deserve so many many many things. I hope you like this as much as I do, and I hoooope you weren't expecting something else, or....well. Happy B-Day, Bro.

oohh mother of grumpy cats
HAHA I KNOW, RIGHT !
I can already see the ads. Free Wi-Fi in all Seireitei !
OOOHHH YOU TOO !!! DAAAAAAMN WHEN HE WENT VASTO LORDE FOR THE FIRST TIME, WITH YUZU IN HIS ARMS, I HAD MASSIVE GOOSEBUMPS OMG OMG OMG BEST ANIME MOMENT OF MY WHOLE LIFE AS WEEEELL (I even wrote a suuuper extreme comment on *KylePhantom's page after seing it haha) the fights were so fluid ! True, the animation was amazing. Really. Hehe the skull clad
HIS HOLLOW SCREAMS STILL GIVE ME SHUDDERS, EVEN WHEN I ONLY THINK ABOUT IT D: !!!! And...oh my bad yeah.....when he comes back from Hell with Yuzu..it's just...so incredibly emotional...the true despair of a brother D': (also thinking that he could turn into such a monster just to ~avenge her !! OH. MY. GOD. TERRIBLY CREEPY. SCARY AS HELL.)
Same here. Kokuto seemed like the good guy.
Zabimaru, Y U NO easier to draw first ?!! D': then yeah...why so huge....mah..mah background dammit
Divi had the huge chance of Learning to draw realistic first :I I think that's it. Once you got everything right in realistic, manga (even more realistic ones, like Bleach, admit it.) instantaneously seems easier I think......
I've NEVER been able to do anything realistic. People AND landscapes. So basically, I must do and do and redo and redo again until I get it right
Divi is one of my idols, that's it. :')
Huuuuuuunnn thank you sooo muuuuch !!! I am so happy I could see some improvement in my anatomy already, but I'm still far from doing it bim bam like this. BUT with references, I already find it easier.
YUSH MA'AM I WILL.
