Hirako Shinji: Serious and Ready to Fight by NateParedes44 Hirako Shinji: Serious and Ready to Fight by NateParedes44
Hi guys, Surprise 40+ LIKE drawing!!!!
I know that i haven't done the Hitsugaya drawing yet. (I'll explain that later below)

Anyway, in this picture i drew Shinji commencing his fight against a Vandenreich member. As you know, on chapter 490 of Bleach, we last left of as Vandenreich invaded Soul Society. In this drawing, Shinji starts by immedietly going to SHIKAI and drawing his MASK when he encounters his Quincy opponent. As he does so, he begins to spin his sword so its effect takes place. Hope you guys like it :D

I will do a new drawing according to the number of likes it gets:
50 "Likes"- Toshiro Hitsugaya Drawing
75 "Likes"- (Voter chosen drawing)
100 "Likes"- Sosuke Aizen Drawing
125 "Likes"- Yamamoto Drawing

:D :D :D 190 LIKES :D :D :D

LIKE the facebook page for hidden pics!

Thanks for everything guys :D

If you want to see how i drew this, i will be posting a video for it on my Youtube channel soon: (LINK=====>) :D :D :D :D

I'm new to writing critiques (this is actually my first time, so please don't kill me).

I think you did an awesome lineart work, the proportions are well done and the shading is where it's needed.

The only critique I would have about the drawing would be that his hand looks somehow off, maybe the palm is too fat compared to the fingers or maybe his index should be a bit more towards the other half of his mask... I'm not really sure, I have trouble drawing hands, too.

The concept is cool and fresh, this is the first pic I have seen of Hirako figthing the Vandenreich so far. You also kept him in character which is always nice to see.

It's also cool that you insinuated his relationship with Momo, considerating there isn't actual manga material to work with, I think the words choice was overally well done taking into account what Kubo said about them and what we already know about their personalities.

The only thing I can regret about this is that it's not colored, because that would make this even more impressive.
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR
15 out of 15 deviants thought this was fair.

First off i'd like to say i like the lines, though they are lacking some variation in thickness but they are still good! now, i dont know anything about bleach so im just judging on art alone. If he is commencing a fight, this should be much more dynamic, with action lines! shock lines! etc. its supposed to be fast-paced isnt it? also the position of the mask, his hand, his body and his face all kind of look like they were drawn in separate angles and dont flow well together. its a really awkward pose. i think the mask may be making the hand and the face awkward because without it they work amazing! I have a friend who submitted his work to shonen jump japan. and they told him the same thing - their suggestion tho, was to look at yourself in the mirror doing the same pose and practice off of that ! :>

Tsk tsk he was taken out so easily by Bambietta.. Well heres hoping the Leader of the Vizards will get to redeem himself and get to have a good fight next time we see him...

Nah, Kubo only took Shinji out of the picture momentarily so that Komamura would have screentime. He will be alright.

cant wait to see his bankai though :)
blackbommer22 Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2014
Hopefully he will win. Still pissed at how he revealed Rose's Bankai only to have him jobbed to that lame ass Mask...

I wish Kubo showed who he was fighting against.  Sakanade would have been very useful for everyone.  
NateParedes44 Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist

me too! I wanted to see who got him so beat.... id like to think he was protecting Momo, lol


From the tiniest info, though. I believe that Rukia was fighting Candice Catnipp, because her enemy got really angry when Rukia stopped paying attention to her fight.

Candice also got angry when Giselle ignored her while she was talking, even wanting to fight her over that.... :D

I cant wait to see his bankai and background with Momo <3

I really like the whole alphabet thing with the quincies, it shows us how many powerful opponents there are, I wonder who Shinji will end up fighting, right now I can see him fighting with Haschwalth.
Good work man.
NateParedes44 Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
it was very interesting of Kubo to implement the whole "Letters" to the quincys. That means that there were at least about 26 of them.... Kubo didnt show them all in the first invasion but their presence was implied...
Im not sure who shinji will end up fighting.... but i have high hopes for the vizards in this arc..... they better use their masks!!!

Ichigo doesnt have his anymore :/
