Bleach - Cat and Hornet

Yep, another pencil/digitally colored Bleach pic. This time I choose to draw Soi Fon and Yoruichi. I am pleased at how they turned out (even if soi fon's arm turned out rather long and skinny looking) but my favourite thing about this one is the background. I always struggle with background ideas so its always exciting when it turns out better then I expected.

Drawn completely in regular pencil (on 8.5x11 computer paper) then scanned and darkened. I then added in some color with photoshop under the pencil. Some effects were also added above the pencil. I should also mention that a pose reference was somewhat used for soi fon.

The pencil only version can be seen in my blog --> [link]
I also have a step by step tutorial showing how to color under pencil like this. --> [link]

Time: Pencil: approx. 2 weeks in my spare time, Coloring: approx. 6 hours.
Drawn with a regular mechanical pencil.
Colored in photoshop.
No Critique desired.
(yes I know Soi Fon's arm looks to skinny and long *sigh*)

As always, thanks for looking! :hug:

Yoruichi and Soi Fon are my two absolute favourite females in Bleach and I think you've done a good job capturing them in this style.

I've noticed you've done some commissions, and I love your work! I was wondering if you could do a picture with my OC and Uryu Ishida?

All requests are paid commissions (prices are listed on my front page journal) and if you wanted to get a paid one done and the prices don't scare you away, just send me a note and we can discus the details. :)

Shiny, suzumebachi is... As a fan of bleach, I can't help but to be so happy to see that some artists like you go beyond the usual manga/anime style. I loved this too ^^
