Step by Step Tutorial for Saya x Saeko Fanart

It seems like a lot of my watchers expressed interest in seeing a tutorial on how I painted the Saya x Saeko Fanart piece, so here it is.  I'm going to break down everything into the basic elements so it's easy to follow along.  However I can't cover everything as that'll take way too long and this is already running pretty long as it is.   I'll save the finer details for future, more in depth tutorials 
Lines And Setup
Composition
The first step is to set up the composition.  I outlined Saeko first and Saya second.   The two are on separate layers so I could play around with their placement.   I also did some rotating of the two until I ended with the final look.   During this step don't be afraid to play around with all the characters and objects, either with rotation or resizing to get the look that you want.   It's best to keep

Good morning, James. Thank you for visiting and viewing my work, and very cool! thanks for the faves on Young Medusa with Vipera Ammodytes (I'm planning another one of the same theme, as this one doesn't yet get the concept across that I want), and thank you especially for sharing your own unique vision, drawing style and technique.
Cheers,
Ed
