10 years anniversary(-ish) by Elruu
10 years anniversary(-ish)
Well, almost. If I'm to believe file dates, I drew my first Bleach fanart in July 2006. It was a sketch of Yumichika and Shuuhei.
Yes, surprise, I started shipping them first thanks to their fight during the time Ichigo and Co came to Gotei and were persuaded as intruders. Shipping these two didn't last though. Firstly, I didn't like the ship portrayal in fanfiction of that period, I couldn't find a nice story to read and to fuel my shipper's imagination. Secondly, the ship wasn't supported by new chapters of the manga. Yumichika and Shuuhei seldom interacted and I actually liked Shuuhei's cute crush on Rangiku. 
I started drawing Kira and Gin the same month (quite possibly because I read the manga that was ahead of the anime) and got momentum in 2007. 2008-2010 were most productive years, afterwards I gradually left the fandom. I'm still following Bleach, sadly, the canon doesn't inspire me anymore. I will probably still continue drawing my favourite OTP, but very occasionally. 
Anyhow, it was a good ride back in the day with more than 600 works (mostly sketches) and two DJs. I drew this Kira with camelias for Bleach musical Kira's actor Kitamura Eiki for his 30th birthday in 2011 (he got it, he liked it, yay). It's the actor in the role, so there are some disrespancies with manga clothes.

Forever cries over lack of Kagehisa/Rin fanart and fanfics.
