Here's a quick sketch (...well it took an hour or so...) I did of Ichigo.
Here's a link theReference picture
This time I mix it up by using prismas colors on black paper. I was limited on colors, I only had three. The white marks are from a white charcoal pencil.It turned out pretty good, but the face could have been better and I totally messed up his eyes, so I colored the entire sunglasses.
Thanks to mangakid's post about the use of reference pic, I think I did pretty well. I did use a ref pic, but I wasn't too dependent on it, I just needed the structure. After I was done sketching I just colored it in without looking at the ref picture.
Well it's late and I gotta sleep, so later
