Princess Serenity color by catzilla Princess Serenity color by catzilla
Time spent on sketch/inking: 4 hours
Time spent on coloring: 8 hours... ugh.

The full view is worth it. Watermarked because it was advised, understandably.

Colored version of: [link]

I'm so incredibly happy with her. I wanted a limited set of colors, mostly gold and blue. I colored her dress with metallic pencils, can't really capture shiny on the scanner :(

the part I'm most proud of is the shading of her skin! Especially the nose :P

Yep, that's all!

inked with microns on smooth bristol board.
colored MOSTLY with spectracolor design pencils.
especially one sad little blue pencil that is now a 1 1/2 inch stub.
one layers of blue tria marker in the background over pencil.
yellow marker on the moon.

Gorgeous. The coloring is really great XD I'm sure you had to use a lot of the blue colored pencil, unless this is smaller in person.

i really like it but i think it would be more beutifull if you did the face as it is with thouse big eyes and incocent look...she doesnt look like usagi/sailor moon/serenity to me...

I think she looks older and more Japanese. It's a style difference I guess. *shrugs*

She is, but she's older when she's in Crystal Tokyo...

Thank you ^_^

I need to watch them all again soon (and I still need season two >_<;)

It's all colored pencils with an overlay of blue marker in the background and yellow on the moon.

Ooo!!

I know, but I feel like she had to have an in between somewhere. It's not shown at all. So think of this as Usagi age 18/21... somewhere around there.

That brave little pencil did a good job. The blue beautifully complements the other colors, makes it really eye-catching.

Very good. ^_^
