Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhh! This took THREE days. One day for the lines, one for the coloring, and the last just for deciding the background. The lines were easy. It took two movie lengths to finish Orihime's hand. Ulquiorra's hand took about the same time. Orihime's hand was easy to color but Ulquiorra's was a pain. And the background was the biggest pain. It took hours to find the right background. I was going to make it like the recent opening "Change". Where they are reaching towards each other with a bright white light as the background but it was a failure. Then I thought of the scene where Orihime tells him that "I'm not afraid" (which is where the title came from) and reaches out towards his hand. That background was easy, just the Hueco Mundo night sky. I was able to finish that background within 10 minutes.

I used this scan for the hands:

    You had have the same idea as me... It was turning to the idea, but and the end I have not done the wallpaper. Congratulations for the work, the background is perfect like "Las Noches" good decision :).

    Keep it up the good job :).

    Although you could have made a bigger version of the wall ^_^".Still I love the concept you imagined and the way you made the colors ;)
    Keep up the nice work! ;3

    Interesting wall, but it lacks your sign...
    Otherwise, novel and really nice wall.

    uuuuuuuuuh! this are supossed to be Orihime and Ulquiorra... such a weird couple but romantic at the same time... I wished Tite let live Ulquiorra in the serie but it didn't happened... he was such an amazing character along with Grimmjow... such a waste!

    but i love this, kinda new shot for me... thanks for sharing...

    i have moved this to indy/vector art. if you would like it to be a wall, the background and color composition need to be more detailed :)
