The European Series: Germany by Matts-91 The European Series: Germany by Matts-91
Rukia from Bleach

So, I don´t know if you read my last journal but I´m going to make a new series, *insert epic drumroll here*

The European Series

Starting with my homecountry, Germany! :la:

Basically, this series will be about Rukia (or maybe other characters, too) wearing clothes representing a country from Europe in its concept.

All in colour of course!!

The European Series: Germany
The European Series: Spain
The European Series: France

If you want your country also to be part of this series, comment or note me! ;)


That´s all for now! Have a great time and please leave some feedback for me! Hope you like this coloured piece and the idea of this series ;P

*edit: I noticed it was kinda dark on other screens. changed the brightness to a higher tone now.

You have some really awesome drawings. If you don't mind, can you do some bleach requests from me like some in some Slovakian uniforms like Tatsuki in that and Orihime in Montenegro's please?

I can do those too, of course! thanks for requesting these!

So, it´s Tatsuki as Slovakia and Orihime as Montenegro, yes?
And by uniform, do you mean something like a soldier´s uniform?
I mean, do you want something military and strict? Or can I make them like Germany and Spain?

but I can´t tell you when I´ll have finished them. they come as inspiration kisses me...or not.
But I´ll do those requests for you for sure :)

I hope you´ll like the next pieces at least the same :)

Sorry for not replying. Busy life on my end and forgetting. A close friend of mine reminded me to talk with you.

Tatsuki in a dress from Slovakia or something of that nature like Spain


Second, can you make Loly and Menoly in a dress from Austria please, this is my 3rd request. Again sorry for not reply, things are kind of hectic on my end. If I can think of anymore I'll let you know.

I know that feel!

okay, now I get it. it´s on my list :D but it will take some time, so I beg for your patience.

those are these two arrancar girls, who teased Inoue, right?
I´ll think about it. I have no concept yet for that but eventually I will get an idea and do it.

I´m glad you have so many requests, they keep me going and I´m very thankful for that :D

no problem, life´s hectic here too. so take your time and just relax, I´m a patient type so no need to hurry or to worry :thumbsup:

Ich bin froh, dass du sie nicht in ein Dirndl gesteckt hast.

I'm glad, that you didn't make her wear a dirndl

Ganz ehrlich: ich hab schon dran gesacht das zu zeichnen, vor allem weil ich selbst aus bayern komme ;) aber ich dachte mir, dass es nicht für deutschland stehen würde.
Allerdings möchte ich nochmal ein konzept für deutschland entwerfen, ein komplett neues ;)

Schön, dass es dir gefällt :) spanien kommt dieses wochenende noch!

Ja, Deutschland ist mehr als nur Dirndl und Lederhosen (und Oktoberfest...)Auch wenn ich mir nicht so sicher bin, wieviel davon überhaupt im Ausland wahrgenommen wird.
Du kommst aus Bayern? Ich komm aus Franken ;)
Ich finde die Idee, Umrisse von Wahrzeichen deutscher Städte in den Hintergrund zu setzen, übrigens sehr gut. Freu mich schon auf Spanien.

stimmt, aber vielleicht mach ich auch noch eine extra Version von Bayern. Und ich denke nicht, dass es zwanghaft ein Dirndl wird. Es wird vielmehr um die Rauten in der bayrischen Flagge gehen.

naja, Bayern is nunmal das bekannteste deutsche Bundesland, eben wegen dem Oktoberfest und der Tracht. Das ist das gleiche wie wenn wir sagen, der Übergewichtige ist Amerikaner.

Hab heute zwei stunden an spanien gearbeitet und dürfte am Wochenende fertig werden. sieht bis jetzt echt gut aus. mal sehen was drau´s wird :la:

danke, freu mich über jedes lob :dance:

You're most welcome, my friend.

Yay! :iconredbullglompplz: I've got no problem with whoever character you draw.I'm wondrous about the theme; are you going to draw them in an ancient greek outfit? It would be nice and would surely represent Greece well!

Don't you worry. :pat: I'm most patient :meow:

I don´t have a good enough idea yet, but I think that it will have that ancient touch. since I really love the ancient greece the same like the ancient italy :) :love:

thanks for understanding. and you can still tell me if you want to see a certain character ;)

Reply
:icongaaradesert6:
gaaradesert6 Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2012
Which character?Oh so you'll be doing various characters,I thought it would be just Rukia? Hmm..character...either Rukia or Toshiro..which is easier to you. Or maybe Toshiro so you wouldnt repeat Rukia.I dunno whichever causes less hassle :D

What kind of info are you looking for?(anything specific?)
Hmm well usually i use good ol wikipedia [link]

:iconmatts-91:
Matts-91 Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2012
I originally planned to draw only Rukia but a lot of people have already asked to me to a version of theit cointry with another character. So I will do others, too ^^;

It doesn't really matter but I prefer females over males because there are a lot more options to different clothing creation.

I'm fine with anything you tell me. It's better to get info from an inhabitant of that country first hand :) just tell me what you like about croatia and maybe any traditions or typical clothing there is. that often helps me to be inspired.

ok,well if you prefer girls,then either Rukia or Hiyori:)

Okay, but it will take some time until I Get the piece done. before that I must do spain, greece, usa as an extra for a friend, france, and and and...
Maybe I can make croatia a bit earlier ;

its ok,i cant wait to see any country!
Spain is great,I like Greece,America is kinda overrated to me(I see DOZENS of America based clothes here,its just plain boring,I got bored of the stars and stripes concept for clothing)

(But dont worry Im not one of those pushy people,this is my 1st request ever,so I'll wait xD)

just worked to hours on Spain^^; I went from photoshop to paint tool sai, so I gotta get used to this new programm. I must say it´s much easier to use and to understand. and those brushes are all so well programmed, I just love it!!

I´ll get it done on the weekend probably...

that´s really a pity. but all the clothing I`ll do, will be based on the flag colours of each country.

that´s good to know because I usually take my time to make my pieces as best as I can^^;

Germany is my homecountry so I wanted to start with it. Great to hear you like Germany! What do you like about it? :)

thanks for liking the idea, too. I already finished the lineart for Spain (it´s again with Rukia) and I´ll work on it tomorrow. after that I´ll do Greece :D

I saw you´re from Mexico and if I get a good idea for mexico, I´ll do that too as an extra ;)

and your english is just fine!

I think that is a great idea, and wish you knew someone who made clothes, I have nieces who would wear that outfit in a hear beat.I know absolutely nothing about Rukia, okay I do know a little, but I think this is a great idea. I also like how you put some white highlights along with the dark it adds so much to making it look like really good hair. I am also glad you mentioned Greece. I know their flag is only white and blue but it is a really cool flag.

really? I´d gladly send it to your nieces, if I could sew ^^;

I love thinking about the design of clothes. It makes a big part of the drawing so I actually think a lot about what I give the drawn characters to wear. If I ever get the chance I want to design clothes. But I won´t be permitted to studying any kind of subject related to design. I´m not good enough for that. And I know the design is not all to good and I have to get better but it is a beginning ;)

that hair... that hair took me forever! but it really looks nice and neat and I didn´t know I could get something like that done in photoshop ^_^

I also must tell you that I´m not really satisfied with these clothes. it´s a good concept but something´s still missing.

Great to hear you like the idea! the lineart for spain is finished and tomorrow I want to start colouring it :la: and the concept for spain is way better than the one for germany. You´ll love it. and your nieces, too ;)

next one will be greece then, I guess. I already have some ideas in my mind.
