So this is a request for a dear friend of mine, great Bleach fan, who asked me to draw Toshiro Hitsugaya's bankai. I gladly accepted, seen that he was my favourite character :XD: And I took this as an opportunity to practice a bit with humans. Man, I really suck with them c: I asked her if I could draw him as a Transformers, but she started laughing in my face. Think that she thought I was kidding her. Yeah, I was.
Anyway, This was just SO FUCKIN HARD TO COLOR, I spent almost two hour for one of those ice wings, and please do not ask me about the ice tail D:
Well, I'm pretty satisfied about the result, that ice was a challenge to me, certainly it's not so realistic, but I like it c:
Hope you like it too^^

This is beautiful! I love how vibrant the ice is, you did a good job on it. And that fierce stance fits him so well :D

I'm very glad you like it! While I was sketching it I went to read some parts where he fights, I took inspiration from the manga for his stance:D Even if it's not good as the original one anyway:P
Thank you very much btw!^^

Looks like it took some time with the color heh :XD: But the result is amazing! And certainly it's hard to make that icy effect :XD: How do you manage to keep the quality on traditional work, If I can ask... my scanner always ruin it... :XD: I'm not going into details, the picture is just fabulous, and fyeah, I love Toshiro! :noes:

Eheheh, you think right, it tooks A LOT of time :XD:
I'm glad it finally came out quite well, I didn't draw icy things so often, in truth xD

About the scanner... it's a lost fight D: I mean, everytime I scan a drawing I know for sure that something is going to be ruined:| Especially warm tones, I usually lost orange and dark red colors first. 
Anyway, I try to clean up the drawing with an eraser tool from any drawing program, just the small spots the scanner stands out with its damn light :XD: To make sure that I don't have to change contrast and similar parameters that could ruin even more the colors! Then I increase a bit the light (ehm, I'm not a digital artist, so I may use some generic terms xD) to make disappear what you can't erase with that tool, and the difference between the cleaned parts and the uncleaned ones (sometimes it could be a bit too invase). In this way the quality looks better:)
This simple thing usually works on drawings without a complex bg (almost all of my works really DOES NOT have complex bg :XD: ). It's a rough method, but I've never been so good editing digitally my works^^;

Thanks anyway, but if you want to talk about the details, useful comments are always welcome, don't worry;P

I stopped to read Bleach some time ago, but Hitsugaya's always been my favourite character from the manga, a friend of mine also gave me a small action figure for Christmas that actually is on my bedside :XD:

Bwahahah looks like it! Well all the ice turned out good, but my favorite pieces are definitely the flowers! Love how you made 'em :heart:

Oww same here, I usually try to fix that with some texture and that but never seems to work all right :c Sounds like a lot of work but If it's really worth it, I'll give it a try! Thanks for the tips :heart:

Awww read it again! I'm a new Bleach fan (a friend of mine kept trying to convert me until he did D: it caught me that hardcore orz :XD:) Specially love it because of it's humor (xD) and that it has many awesome characters (I like a bunch of characters!) But you know, from periods I may like one better than other and the one I'm liking the most at the moment is Toshiro; how not to like such a cute little captain :XD:

And thanks for the reply! I actually didn't think you would :XD: I refuse to comment because I never get replies IF I ask something... which it ends on me ninja-faving :XD: But I saw none else commented when I did so I thought I'd give it a try hah. So thanks again! =D

Oh, you have to know that the flowers were the only part of the drawing that I didn't like too much, but then, after scanning, they became sort of nice. You see, sometimes our scanners do something good :XD:

I know, it's a long work, especially if you have some detailed drawing to clean upo, you've to be very careful, also to make the correction "invisible" when you're going to change contrast and such parameters, but it's the only way I know D: As I said before, I really suck with digital editing... well, in truth I suck with digital EVERYTHING. The best thing I'm able to do digitally is add some textures, that's my maximum ability :XD:

Well, I think I should. I stopped some time ago because after the Arrancar/Aizen saga I thought the comic would have finished, and I thought it would had a good ending after all. A bit sad but good! When I saw it continues with a new saga, well, I lost my patience. Unfortunately I'm not really a patient person, and I thought that the new story would have been just something to keep the comic alive, to make some more money and go on. I stopped for that reason, a couple of years ago, I think. Well, looking at my last Bleach fanart I finished to read it exactly in October 2010 :XD:

In these days I started to read from chapter 549, just because I wanted to give it a look (imagine my pleasant surprise when I saw there was Hitsugaya 8D) and now I just want to know if he's going to be alive after that shot :XD:

Well, when I decide that one character become my favourite character I change idea veeery hardly xD After two years too, if I would start to read Bleach again, I'm sure my fav character would be Captain Hitsugaya, eheheh! I liked him because of its behavior, nature. I always like icy people who in truth are not-so-icy-people :XD: And because Hyorinmaru's bankai is the coolest bankai, in my opinion, the one I liked most c: I liked Hollow Ichigo too, but he was the second with Ichigo himself xD

Oh, why would I? c: I would have replied to you even if there was like 100 comments xD If you look at some other deviations of mine, with more comments, you see that I usually reply to all comments, somehow. Just because I think it's kind of rude to not consider the person who's trying to talking to you xD I'm not talking about artists who received 1000 and more comments per deviation, of course, think that they're justified after all. But I receive a media of 15-20 comments per deviation, sure it's not so hard to type on the keyboard :XD:
You're welcome c:
