"Leave this to us!"- Lieutentant Rukia Kuchiki
& Sode no Shirayuki
My entry for this month's contest at EDIT: I WON 1ST PLACE! ^___^
The theme was Rukia Kuchiki and her zanpakuto Sode no Shirayuki.
Rather than displaying a sparkly, snowy, regal effect that Rukia's sword dances usually have, I decided to go with a blade of fiery ice effect by having the energy wrapping around the blade and pulsating with mist. I wanted Sode no Shirayuki to have a more fierce and powerful looking release, to help reflect Rukia's strength, determination, and will power.Please FULL-VIEW for complete details!
