Sailor Mars and Sailor Moon by Margalot Sailor Mars and Sailor Moon by Margalot
Sailors in spaaaaaace! My love for the Sailor Moon series lives on. I actually put a lot of time and effort into this piece.

I made this so that you can view it with either Sailor on top or bottom, so if you want to, download it and flip it so that Sailor Moon is right-side up.

I plan on making prints of this to sell at cons and whatnot. If you'd like one, they'll be $15 including shipping. Just note me if you're interested. Also, I'll be selling the original (which is 11x17" and with shimmering paint!), so note me if you're interested in that as well.

Made with ink and watercolor.

I'm just starting to experiment with ink and watercolors, and I am curious: which do you put down first, the ink or the watercolors? And do you erase the pencil under-drawing, or just paint directly on top of it? By the way, beautiful piece!

I always ink before I paint. Make sure to be using ink that states that it is *waterproof* or you'll be in a world of hurt. Specifically, I like Winsor & Newton or Dr. Ph. Martin's ink best. I HATE Higgins even though I think it's probably the most widely used. You can also use any waterproof pens such as Copic or Faber-Castell – just make sure it has plenty of time to dry first.

The kind of paper you use also makes a huge difference. Hands down the best watercolor paper is made by Arches, which is what this piece used. If you're lucky, you may also find watercolor board which is also a treat to work with. If I'm just mussin' around, I'll use a cheaper brand like Strathmore. All of these come in a variety of cold press, hot press, toothy, smooth, etc – and those are all up to your personal preference.

I don't often do my pencils on watercolor paper. If the piece is going to be something quick I just wanna knock out, I might do my pencils on the watercolor paper using a red pencil or some other warm color that will blend in with the paints. As a general rule erasers will damage watercolor paper, so whatever I put down stays down.

Most often I will draw out my pencils on one sheet of paper, then transfer it to the watercolor paper when I have no more corrections to make. I used to do this via transfer paper which comes in graphite, white, blue, yellow, and red. Using transfer paper is a real pain in the fanny, but I did it for years, so I can't completely knock it. These days I use a light box to transfer drawings which is amazing. Changed my life. Best $100whatever bucks I ever spent. If you are interested in buying one, mine is made by Copic and uses LED lights. Awesome.

Ok, that was probably more information than you wanted, but I hope it helped. Happy watercoloring!
