So this is the result of my newly adjusted work flow, and I am happy to say it went quite smoothly. I think I cut out at least 5 hours of tinkering, which makes me really happy. So yay for blending technology and traditional methods!
Anyhoo, I was reading the new versions of the Sailor Moon manga in the fall (I stopped after 5, so that I could read the next round without having to wait for the rest to be released), and I excitedly doodled all the sailor scouts, and their queen. A couple months ago I drew them out as an experiment, which, as I mentioned above, went quite well. So here is the first one, of maybe many, depending on how well received this is: beautiful Neo Queen Serenity. I haven't drawn anything this girly since I was 12; quite an odd experience, really...
