I need to play Paper Mario again.
a boy and his octopus friend
I got the idea/inspiration after re-reading the *coughs* only BLEACH manga I have so far aside from the Bootleg, which is volume 38.
I instantly bought that because of reasons, lol!
To be specific, I got the idea from chapter 324, “The Reaper” wherein Shuuhei unleashes his shikai.
Well, shinigami are called “soul reapers” in the English dub, but Shuuhei kinda literally represented that because of his dual scythe shikai, Kazeshini.
The concept or the visualization of a Reaper or Grim Reaper or death, to be precise, is different in the west — a cloaked figure wielding a scythe, different from what the east, or specifically Japanese tradition sees. So, with those things, I tried to sorta merge the idea into one (like west meets east) thus, the reason for that ragged cloak, haha!
You can also see in the background the shadow of Kazeshini’s manifested form that is similar to the Zanpakutou filler arc, and the sketch of Kubo-sensei at the end of chapter 325. Also, in the background is Findor’s bloody crab-claw, because he was killed by Shuuhei.
On the foreground, there’s bloody Suzumushi, Tousen’s zanpakutou, because Tousen, like Findor, was defeated by Hisagi using his shikai. There are also white poppies on the foreground, which is the insignia of Ninth Division.
About the process… This is hand-drawn drawing that was scanned and colored digitally in Photoshop. The thing I like about using hand-drawn drawings rather than digital drawings is the effect itself on my style, which is messy and sketchy. Drawing it digitally is just… too clean, even if I intentionally make it sketchy. Oh, and also the texture! I’m still continuing to improve on my drawing style and making semi-realistic illustrations. :P
Whew, so, there you have it. Sorry for the lengthy artist comment!
Gawd, why can’t this be under “read more”…!?Anyhow, I hope you’ll like this~ ^^;
