Ichigo/Rukia


Welcome to ichiruki_stills, an non-animated icontest featuring Kurosaki Ichigo and Kuchiki Rukia from BLEACH. Every week we'll have new challenge to see who can make the best icons. If you've never participated in an icontest, don't worry! Just read the 'Rules' and 'Submissions' below to familiarize yourself with the how the contest is run.

The community is OPEN MEMBERSHIP so feel free to join! You don't have to be a fan of IchiRuki or even a fan of BLEACH -- you can just join for the sake of seeing some great icons. Remember, only members can vote and participate in contests.

Credits to hhr_stillness for the idea of a non-animated icontest.
