My first BLEACH commission....and it took close to four years to finish.
I was commissioned to do this back in in '09 or '10--the client wanted me to recreate a two page spread in the Bleach artbook All Colour But The Black (which I have, and it's a favorite). Of course, I had to make a few changes, so it doesn't follow the original picture exactly.
So I finished it...and lost the client's e-mail address and contact info. I put it aside until earlier this year when the client got back in touch with me again. After taking the picture out again, I noticed a few errors that I corrected, so that's why it's dated "2010-2013".
This was first drawn in Vermillion and colored with Prismacolor markers and with acrylics for touchups. It's probably one of the hardest pieces I've worked on, but as they say, no guts, no glory. And a shout out to Demitrius for asking me to do this--it took a few years, but here it is--and he gets the original.
BLEACH created by Tite Kubo. Artwork by me.
