CG SNK Bankai Ichigo by iDNAR CG SNK Bankai Ichigo by iDNAR
Ichigo's bankai. Done in SNK Shinkirou style. Somehow I think in some ways I think its more SNK, and some ways less. I finally kinda figured out how used multiply and color dodge tools.

Why his is clothes solid? I'm lazy ok. And nobody cares anyways. I know its not totally accurate, I had few references. I didn't like how he had the bandages.

I don't know why everyone says he's short. He's like 6' tall in the picture ok, I feel like he's too tall already? I don't care if looks short compared to the anime. He's 8' tall as human and 10' tall as shinigami. I hate the fact that all the shinigami looks like they're over 10 feet tall, especially the captains. Maybe I'll still edit it later.

My thoughts on Bleach? It's good for the first 10 episodes. From then on, it turns into something like DBZ and its all about who's strong. But for some reason...I still watch it.

Edit: Made him taller. Now he's the standard anime male character height of 7'. HAPPY!?

very good job, really looks like a character from SNK

You know...

I kinda like the weird difference between Ichigo and the uniform. Like, he's more real but less solid. It strikes me as a stylistic choice for an arty CGI movie.

I know why everyone says he's short- you made him waaaaaaay too stocky: a defining characteristic of Kubo's style is that all of his characters have fairly thin and lean builds, at least for the most part

and his outfit is pretty wrong. I'm sure you don't care, but I'm a nerd for Bleach, and am also annoyed at people who don't care to gather reference material for what they're making

love it
AC009 Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2010
Wow. You really nailed that style down. His expression, and face, and the color choices. All phenomenal.

I kind of like that you went a bit more "painterly" than the snk hyper-realism that they place on skin tones. Makes him feel more solid and less trophy like.

heh. fluffy anime hair. Gotta love it.

Seriously 7'? Thats crazy tall! ...i always thought of him as more 5'10"-ish XD
looks good. The expression is a little too un-ichigo, though.

He looks more like cloud than Ichigo though I think it's cause of the hair.

Nice. I love so much of SNK's work, and this is a nice homage. This character looks like he belongs in one of the "Last Blade" games...

Well I don't need to point out the clothes since you already addressed that. Everything else is spot on! I could really see Shinkiro really drawing Ichigo like this. Well done!
Madrona8 Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2009
I would say that the anime or manga version of him is sharper/pointier. However, I really like THIS Ichigo. I wasn't aware of that "style" me=not a gamer. But looking at view examples I think you've definitely captured that style.
pixyteriyaki Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2009
Sexy art I love it!

..Though..Ichi's like 5'8"-5'9"..XD
redtophat Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2009
it looks awesome, like all of your work! I really love realistic renderings of anime chars. There are a ton of comments so someone may have said this but i think if people are having problems with his height that is because with that style he's only about 6-6.5 heads tall, and the average is between 7.5-8.5 for characters like this. I like it either way though :)

this is fantastic, though Ichigo would have a longer and leaner muscular body and same to the face, but really not that much more a difference THIS IS REALLY FRIGGIN GREAT WORK :clap:
rukasu-kun Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2008
hm... very NICE! i cannot let go of the thought that his face should be just a little bit longer though

i agree with your description, shouldn't matter with how the colors are different, every artist have a different way of expressing themselves through art. which btw, i like how you make his clothes solid and his body in general 3d like. real cool. fav'd.
soopahsoljah Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist
you should try a Naruto or Dragonball Z like this. You got great talent!
Cwash Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2008
This is the DOPEST picture of Ichigo I have EVER seen. You got crazy talent man, I'd give my left arm to be able to draw like you.

Keep up the good work!
