Update 21.05.2015: Fixed Ulquiorra's face and shoulders, extended canvas.

REBLOG @ TUMBLR



-----

A little something that came to mind when I saw a gorgeous snowglobe two weeks ago while buying gifts... ^^
Orihime would definitely be fascinated by such a present, Ulquiorra can't go wrong there~
Also, this was an excuse to draw them in their matching winter outfits designed by Kubo. ;)
(Clothes ref here and here)

Another inspiration was a song that defines the mood of the scene: "December" by Kay Starr

This is my last submission for 2013, so I wish you all Happy Holidays and a successful New Year! See you in 2014! :holly::blowkiss:

I love all the details you put into this! The snow looks so light, the detail on the lace of her skirt, the braid of her hat, and the fluffiness of that puffball on top and sleeve edges! XD and is he crying green tears?! AW!

Looks great! Orihime's eyes are a bit too large in comparison to Ulquiorr's, but still looks great nonetheless

YESSS! I was telling Zelka earlier that I wasn't happy with how little UlquiHime winter/Christmas art there was.

I'm so glad you created this lovely picture.

I always loved the idea of Orihime in green. Not only is it "Ulquiorra's color" but since she had redish hair, I think green would really comment her.

And of course, Ulquiorra. I don't know how you do it, but he looks very boyish but so masculine at the same time. It's very unique to your style and I really like it.

This just gives me the feels. They look so cozy on their winter outing /date. I imagine the snow globe was a gift from Ulquiorra to his girlfriend <3

Thank you! <3 I had a cozy feel myself while painting this and listening to "December" by Kay Starr that I wanted to incorporate into the picture - I'm glad it got through! Just a lovely date strolling through a christmas market... Ulquiorra knew Orihime would love that. :heart:
