Bleach Halloween Byakuya Rukia

Well I didn't think I'd have a Halloween picture to post this year but last night I just got a random urge to start painting something new.

This is what I'd call a speed paint, as I started it at midnight last night and I worked right through until 7am (with no stops in between... I didn't even pause to stand up). And before I knew it, this is what happened. There are still a lot of things that bug me, but with my very limited time now, I just don't have any more time to waste on it. So maybe in the future I'll go back and work a bit more on it... but for now, here it is. ^^

I started off with just some head paintings but as I worked down, the idea of doing this as a Halloween picture stuck. I ended up going with a Vampire theme, and if your wondering why the pumpkins face looks odd, it's because I drew it to look like Byakuya's own creation the Seaweed Ambassador. Kind of a strange idea, but I liked it. ^^

Time: 7 hours straight
Colored in photoshop.
No Critique desired!

:pumpkin: Hope you all have a safe and happy Halloween! :pumpkin:

May I have permission to save this picture to my phone as a background and lockscreen for Halloween? Please?
keelerleah's avatar
Sure! :D
And thanks for asking first too, I appreciate it.

Awesomesauce! You just made my Halloween amazing! Thank you so much! No need to thank me, just for asking, I wouldn't have been able to just take it without permission I'd have felt terribly guilty.

Nice, the vampire theme does suit the Kuchiki siblings very well. Love Rukia's outfit.

Scary and horrific. Perfect for the halloween season. Let the pumpkin hunting begins!

Dark theme suits the siblings.

Beautiful. I love Byakuya and Rukia together, even though TECHNICALY they're siblings.
But anyway. I digress. I love it!!!!!!!!!

Oh gosh! Have you read the book, "Vampire Kisses"?

There are two main characters one vampire guy named Alexander and a girl named Raven but she's human (of course haha). This picture reminds me so much of it! This is exactly how I imagined they would look! It's crazy!

I love it!

Are you going to do more Halloween Bleach Character pieces?
keelerleah's avatar
Perhaps in the future someday, but so far I don't think I have time yet this year. But who knows, that may change. ^^;

This is Drew Henry, artist and owner of The Boston Spectrum cyber art 'zine~ Every October I run an international issue as Halloween is my favorite holiday, and... I'm on the talent search once again for the October 2012 issue! I have chosen this piece for consideration, and am seeking "permission of use"! If permission is granted, please email me at for further details! I eagerly anticipate your response! Also, if you are unfamiliar with The Boston Spectrum and have questions, many of those questions can probably be answered right here at the main page: [link] . If you visit, be sure to check-out last year's International Halloween issue (October 2011)!!! Cheers, and be well! ~Drew !

Byakuya kinda looks like what Barnabas Collins from Dark Shadows would look like if they did an anime (the ORIGINAL Dark Shadows, not the crappy Johnny Depp one). Very cool :D
