April Contest Entry (Fanart) 
5th-May-2005 09:25 am
[Mumei] by Bara-chan
I've been a rather faithful lurker thus far, but decided to break my habits a bit with a contest entry.

Title: When the Umbrella is Too Small...
Medium: Pencil, Photoshop 7.0
Rating: G
Notes: *.txt document. Tried to make it look wet...ish.
E-Mail: fanartist@gmail.com

Went through four sketches and three drafts to get this =__=; It's a bit dark... And I'm a total sucker for pictures of piggyback rides =w=;

Uh, I guess this can be both April Showers and May Flowers u__u;

LOVE! *_* That's too cute! I love the look on Rukia's face and Ichigo's semi-annoyed little expression. The 'wet' look is fantastic! Joy! *saves for looking at later*

cuuuuuute!!!!!!! Ichigo looks like naruto LMAO!!
5th-May-2005 06:20 pm (UTC)
GAH! Every spikey-headed character I draw ends up looking like Naruto ;__;

...Then I guess Rukia would be Hinata...? XD
5th-May-2005 08:30 pm (UTC)

*clap clap clap* this is soooo wonderful!!! I especially like that effect with his right leg.

And he's HOLDING HER SHOES!!!*dies* what a sweet detail.~♥

Wow, this is incredibly sweet! I really like the expression on Rukia's face, and you know this is so something Ichigo would grudgingly do if necessary. ^^
5th-May-2005 06:41 pm (UTC)
AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW this is SO much cute!! and ichigo really looks like naruto xD..but anyway the colors are just great *---* love this ♥

O_O I love ur icon abari_akemi!!!!

Heheh, when I read the word "dandylions," first thing I thought of was the reference to Ichigo. XD
... then I noticed that she was holding some in her hands.

Lol, stupid me for not noticing them first, so I thought it was all a reference to Ichigo. :P

The picture's really cute! (And I love you're Naruto icon. ♥)
5th-May-2005 08:41 pm (UTC)
"Dandylions" are a very interchangable reference ^w^
5th-May-2005 08:50 pm (UTC)
Oh wow... this is really beautiful! You're so talented! The colouring is awesome too, especially the wet bits. I love the ambiguousness of "dandelion", gives depth and meaning to the whole drawing... great idea!

PS If I were to be picky, and I do hope this 'constructive criticism' help, Rukia's had is a tab bit too big... or maybe her head is too small if the hand were to be OK. Either way it doesn't have any influence on the greatness of this drawing! Great job, hope to see much mroe from you!

*Rukia's hand :P
5th-May-2005 08:58 pm (UTC)
He he he ^^; Rukia's left hand waslast-minute addition on my 3rd draft >w<;

Looks like I got caught =w=;;
5th-May-2005 09:00 pm (UTC)
Don't worry, the drawing as a whole is mind-blowing, so it's all good! ^^
5th-May-2005 09:04 pm (UTC)

Such a cute picture as always ^^ Did you think of Ichigo's Tshirt design or is it from the manga?
5th-May-2005 11:37 pm (UTC)
I had the T-shirt design in mind for awhile... Someone told me it was already made, but I've never seen it personally @.@
5th-May-2005 10:46 pm (UTC)
OMG, that is adorable. ^________^ I'd love to see that animated. XD And I love Ichigo's face and his shirt. :D

awww I love it! I especially love the color =D
6th-May-2005 11:31 am (UTC)
Lovely style & color.. Hehehe.. I recognize your art once i see it because it is so distinguishable... XD Good job~
7th-May-2005 03:49 pm (UTC)
Gah! I love this picture. Fanart pictures when the artist draws them in their own style is the best, because you're able to pull off the original artist's characters in a fresh, different style. I noticed how Ichigo looked like Naruto too (every guy I used to draw looked like Naruto, too XD)

The umbrella colors looks kinda like a water stain, and it adds to the touch COMPLETELY. The colors are suttle and dark but heck, I love that.

Fantastic job. I hope you win. =^_^= ♥
