Bubbly fun for Sakky (You're a sweetheart!)
You're right in assuming that this took a long time. It did. I started this at 12 or so yesterday, and finished this morning at maybe 1. I only had to stop a few times to get dinner and to let the other family members use the computer, so that's a good.... 9 or so hours on this. I had to make the lineart from the original drawing by Naoko (Because I won't cover up that fact, the template is by Naoko-sama from a manga drawing of Sailor Moon and Sailor Chibi Moon), then minimise it, open it up in adobe, make a single pixel width lineart from that, delegate the colors I would use (as compared to the real colors which aren't so dulled like right here), then shade the sucker.
So yes. A very long time for a very good friend. She's done a lot for me, so this is a Christmas gift^^ One day before she has to pack up and go home for the holidays, too. I guess it's a good send off.
So yes, steal and I'll send in Napalm armies. I put a lot of time and care into this edit.
