BLEACH: Yoruichi by Washu-M by Raenstrife BLEACH: Yoruichi by Washu-M by Raenstrife
The Black Cat hunts at night...

Check out the gorgeous original lineart by =Washu-M, peeps! [link]

I was thrilled to gain permission to color this amazing picture. @__@ Being a big ol' fangirl for Yoruichi, I had to try my hand at coloring it.

I had a loooad of fun with this one too! I tried a different coloring style out again, and I really am pleased with how the colors look. XD Yoruichi and purple = pure win.

Took a backtrack in the coloring of this picture due to ANOTHER computer crash. D8 But once I got going again... I think I finished this over the course of three days. That time includes experimenting with how I wanted to shade it, and I really am glad I took the time to figure it out and not jump to my default coloring style. :'D

And with that, over and out!

Yoruichi belongs to Tite Kubo

She so pretty :'D I can see why Soi Fong has a subtle interest in her! ;D

You did a great job on coloring~ 8D Air brushing that one area really did help now that I see it; it was a good choice! :nod:
I like her eyes the best though! :heart:_______:heart:

^___^ Thank you! XD I'm slowly getting the hang of this color theory thing, I think...

I know! When I first started watching Bleach, I stumbled across a picture of human Yoruichi, and I was like, "..... Yoruichi's a boy, though. D: What gives here?" And then... yeah. O_O That was a very tricky trick, Kubo. XD

I honestly could've believed this was wholly your pic. And y'know, you could've slapped some snow on it and called it your Christmas art. =P

Isn't that the chick you drew in pencil that one time?

8O Thank you, Miss Pamlady! Aww heck, if I could draw like that, I'd be thrilled. XD

XD DARN IT! Why do you tell me these things afterward? D: You and me should set up a mental connection!

And yes, this be the same chick. X3 She's an awwwwesome character -- therefore she needs LOTS of love!

I thought we had a mental connection once upon a time. :|

Guess it dies over distance?

I'll let you handle all the love-giving for Yoru-whatever. Nah, for Bleach in general. :shrug: I'll love me some gargoyles. B-)

Okay, you can love some gargoyles -- but only on the "two for me, one for you" rule. ;)
