I astounded myself how I managed to post this with the incredibly HORRID connection! I started this vector simply because the scan was awesome and the second motive was that everyone is interested in the "cool" zanpakutos like Hyorinmaru, Senbonzakura, Sode no Shirayuki and so on. So I slapped myself for not doing this earlier since I was part of the category above mentioned. It would've taken less but this week was hell and I didn't have time to work on it *sobs* but now I've finished it. At first I decided to extend the left part of the image but then I realized it looks better with the sword sheath extended than flipped on the other side, so I quickly sketched the sword directly on the wallpaper.
Vector by yours truly, background image credits go to Dany from Desktop Nexus (link here) for the awesome background. I also used various floral brushes for decorative effect.
Hope you guys like it, have fun and keep smiling
*crazy happy funny yoruichi smile*
