High resolution please ^^
OTL a day after I said I'd post..but anyways this is my contest entry for a group on DA and I'm doubling it up as an entry for the Picturing Spring challenge here because I REALLY wanted to enter with this~(even though I mostly did this for myself but you get the idea xDD)
I think one of the most pure representations in the world for Spring has to be just a peaceful walk among cherry blossoms~ Byakuya is usually a relatively ruthless character, who rarely shows emotion but here I wanted to portray a bit of a softer side of him because at times he really is just covering up his soft-heartedness haha~ Cherry blossoms usually bloom anywhere from January to May I believe, right around spring time. And the blossoms just really make you feel happy inside ^^
Happy Belated Birthday, Kuchiki Byakuya!
Yes, belated...his birthday was January 31st xD I actually had started it that weekend but I've been so busy this past week, I've had no time to actually finish until today T__T
His face was SO difficult for me.. I have no clue why but it just was OTL.
And those are supposed to be cherry blossom trees lightly in the background >.<

Sorry for the watermark, I just really don't want this to be stolen because I've had my work stolen in the past.
Take care everyone and enjoy ^^
For Byaku-chan~ because I haven't heard from you in SUCH a long time and seeing your submissions again made me soo happy! I remember thinking when I was drawing this and saw your submissions come up that I didn't know who Byakuya was when I met you xDD But now I do and he is one of my favorite characters~! <3 Keep in touch my amazing friend, I love ya bunches!<33
