New doodle, should really oughta maybe go to sleep…
If I’d thought this wasn’t going to explode into colormud like all the others, I would have drawn something better. I even used crappy paper because I thought hey, it’s probably going to turn gross and weird. There’s a little digital foolery here and there, but other than that It’s just pencil and watercolor. That’s not how this usually works. HMM…
The paints I used were: (Daniel Smith) perylene green, alizarin crimson; (Cotman) emerald, raw sienna; (Winsor Newton) cadmium red. The shadows in the corners were tinted in photoshop, and the highlights in the roses were also added digitally. Next time I might try that with gouache or acrylic depending on how i’m feeling about gouache and acrylic. The brightest whites were also boosted in photoshop because they scanned a little too paper-beige.
Gosh jeeze thanks so much for the feature!! Now I feel all super anxious to start drawing more things!

Luna (in human form), from Sailor Moon
This process really struck a chord. Usually when I try to incorporate all my scratchy-hatching into a piece it turns into mud in the end. It was very fun to make this, it felt a lot more natural, and heck, it’s just nice to finally see it be something other than a really sketchy smudge in the corner of a process book. I have been wanting to draw Luna and her giant space dress for so long now, I was starting to think it’d never happen!
It’s taken me a really really long time to get used to drawing Veronica, or I guess to find her face. The past couple of pages and panels I worked on really made me feel good about her progress! Now I just need to get a whole lot faster.
One thing at a time!
