Sailor Neptune by SakuraSetsuna Sailor Neptune by SakuraSetsuna
Here's neptune. I adore the hair. It looks like a Van Gogh painting. The skin might be my favorite!! Defiantly the best skin I have ever done, freckles are awesome. The eyes are really striking too.
I played around with using different hue highlights. I really love the way it adds depth.

Here's the others:

Wow I had thought I'd commented ages ago. Oops! My bad! This looks lovely! I love all the textures throughout this, particularly the addition of the freckles! They look so cute!! And I'm a sucker for freckles!

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment!!! I did put a lot into this. It's my favorite out of all of them and I can't wait to do the rest.

You have such beautiful drawings. It's nice when I'm in the mood to color but not draw I can just pull out one of your linearts. Thanks so much for that, it's really helped my coloring skills. 

So many people color your drawings. To see you comment was a big surprise. Thank you so much.

wow  the skin looks so realistic Ovo
and that hair! *W* Yasuko Takasu (Fangirling) [V1] :heart:
But in my personal opinion I think it would look even better if the clothing had an a bit more special colouring.bunneh icon5 
I mean it looks amazing (better than my digital works so far) but in comparison with the hair and the skin it doesn't fit. It looks kind of boring except for the lighted parts they are really well done!
 
In fact you did a really nice job here. It does look amazing!  :icongoodjobplz:
I hope I could handle it to tell you what I mean... >w< :iconkawaiipandaplz:

I added some lace to the pink. It looks good!

I think I know what you mean, like a pattern or something maybe. It does look a bit flat. 

I tried really hard with the high lights, it's changing to make different hue highlights without making it look like a gradient.

Exactly that's what I tried to say :') I am glad you understood.

The highlights are as I already said really well done!

About your newer version of the pic:
That's indeed better :3 but I like the old skin better.
How have you done this pattern on the knee socks etc. ? They look so cool. Is it a brush or something like that? O:

I left the skin the same. All I did was add the lace.
I downloaded some lace brushes awhile back. I just selected the pink parts and made a new layer. I used a large size of my lace brush and just overlaid it on the pink, then I turned down the opacity to about 20%.

ah okay... strange...ah okay now I get it... my laptop display was fooling around again ==
when I pull off my charging cable than everything looses colour ... don't ask me why.. usually I only draw with cable
And I could swear it did look different before but... maybe my brain was afk or so
haha sorry
I had a math test today my concentration has gone... (it was like my whole future was depending on that test)

Cool, I wish I had brushes like that for my sai... but somehow I wanna do it myself (even if it's really hard...)
