Rukia Kuchiki by Gravija-Sunrise Rukia Kuchiki by Gravija-Sunrise
Original lineart by *jadeedge.
:iconjadeedge:

I was in need of some CGing practice and came across *jadeedge's wonderful line art. I originally had no idea who this character was, but I colored it anyway. :D Several hours and countless color changes later--I eventually looked her up and realized she didn't have blonde hair--the image and it's sort-of-a-bail-out background is complete. I need to do more backgrounds.

This being more of a practice, I wasn't afraid to explore a bit. I wanted to try my luck at a convincing translucent silk-like fabric for her clothes. I thought it would do *jadeedge's the most justice. I didn't make it TOO transparent, though, since I didn't want to stamp a Mature Content on this one. :D

Also, for reasons unknown, I don't think I've ever shaded a midsection before this. It was pretty difficult for me, and I even had to use several references to try and get it right. And, as always, I had some trouble with the hair, though it wasn't as horrible an experience than I had originally feared.

On to the next one!

Great pic of Rukia! The transparency/silkiness of the clothes is very well caught and the attention to the skin tones is really good. =)

I thinl I like this one more than J's....yours has more of an artistic feel, because of the background...I like seeing an artistic illustrations of anime characters that veer from the norm...the remake you did is really great but I favor this one a lil more

I love Rukia.

She, aside from Scherrice Adjani (S-cry-ED), Faye Valentine (Cowboy Bebop), Esther Blanchett (Trinity Blood), and Sango (Inuyasha), has to be one of my favorite of anime girls.

Very well rendered. And I love the PSP wallpaper too. (Currently my new PSP wallpaper) ^_^

taking a second look at this picture I finaly notice something odd/off about it althou it took me a few minutes to realise what it was. Her hand the one rest on the windowsill to me it's looks like it's more floating over it part of her pose makes he look like she's resting on the windowsill edge, at least to me she is but her had doesns't it looks like it's supposed to be but just something about the hand and arm and it's angle makes me think no it isn't.

Not sure why I just do.
