That has to be the most challenging wallpaper I made so far. And for one particular reason: everything from the tori to the bird is painted from total scratch with references pictures. Photoshop CS + 8 days work + sleep time consuming plz (thx Nat for the scan in PZ).

You know why daytime sceneries are so hard to draw? Because you cannot hide details in shadows like you'd do with night sceneries. And I have to admit this background was a real pain. I started drawing the stairs and the tori (gate) which bears the kanji "soul" to the left. I let you guess what's the one to the right :D. I think I quite succeeded to catch the same perspective as the characters which was just maybe out of luck.

I added the fence and the brick wall out of ideas... I really didn't know what to draw there. It finally turned out ok but it was still looking kinda empty. So yeah, go me, I added cliche sakura tree loosing a goddamn huge pack of drops. XD But this is what gives the whole magical and serene feeling to this wallpaper.

As last touches, I added first the far-away shrine. Nothing much to say on this one. And finally, the little bird. If you've seen the serie, you'll know it's a minor character in the early episode. That was just too cute not to be drawn. XD Oh and hum... the scan was recged too.

It's funny how Rukia really seems to climb my stairs and Ichigo had his right hand perfect for grabbing my petal. @_@ Oh well, enough babbling, enjoy the work.

    Kyaa! Bleach! I love the concept! The sakura blossom is like really crazy, haha, it's everywhere! The sky is really beautiful, I love your clouds! I think you did a great job on the branches but it could be alittle bigger and further out but overall it gives off a dreamy, happy feel! The scan is crisp and clean! Awesome Job! An instant fav!

    The petals look too clustered in some parts, but it doesn't ruin the wall. This is a definite favorite.
