Leave This To Us! by Thesis-D Leave This To Us! by Thesis-D
"Leave this to us!"- Lieutentant Rukia Kuchiki & Sode no Shirayuki

My entry for this month's contest at :iconbleachrealism:

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! :)

I like your painting style here! It's cool that you can make your work look so smooth and seemless. The glow on the sash at the end of the sword is a bit distracting but, I do really like the contrast of black and white here.

OMG! Sode no Shirayuki looks amazing here! So intricate and beautifully deatailed! <3 And I love how strong Rukia looks here. She is such a strong a character in the anime and it is good to see you portray that. And though it is a small detail I love the way you drew her badge! ^^

To be honest, I don't know anything about Sode no Shirayuki, the new badge, etc, other than the information I've garnered offhand from others or by looking at reference pictures. I had the option to draw traditional Rukia, before the promotion, before the person in her sword is revealed, etc, but I had already drawn so many pictures of traditional Rukia, that I wanted to draw the updated version, with newer uniform and hair. :)
