Artist Comment

This came out of the blue. Like... I was rummaging through the Bleach wiki, and found this awesome screenshot from anime ep 208. I waited so long to see the Pendulum arc in the anime, particularly the short Byakuya part, that when I saw that smile I screamed and melted and died. I even screenshot that scene (but I found a better one, so I used that).
Now about the vector, it took me around... 5 or 6 hours. It wasn't as hard as I thought it'd be. I redrew the top of his head, so I apologize if it looks weird. I'm really glad with how this one came out. I had a bit of trouble with his mouth and nose, because the lines came to be too thick and they looked weird. And the shadows did nothing to help. But I somehow managed to fix it, and so, here it is. Hope you like it.

    Did anyone know that Byakuya was a twig when he was young?
    Did anyone else know that he actually smiled?
    The picture above is evidence...

    WOW! Byakuya is actually SMILING!
    The first and last time I saw him smiling was scary...
    His smile is mysterious that time and cunning at the same time...
    But this makes me want to HUG him!
    He is so cute!
