Well...first colored work related stuff in a while.  In fact, if I think about it this is my first color version of something in 2018.  Took me long enough to post something like this and this time it's something special.  It's more LAMA gear and more Cardcaptor Sakura stuff and I've basically done a bunch of different scenarios with them so what else could I do with them...meet themselves ^^

That's right, not only do I have Sakura and Tomoyo from the original Cardcaptor Sakura but this time it's with Sakura and Tomoyo from the Clear Card series as well (Plus Kero) both underwater in LAMA gear and in the same picture together.  While you have seen both Sakuras in LAMA gear from a different picture, not so much with both Tomoyos here as they judging from their heart shape air bubbles it's a dream come true to record two Sakuras both old and new.

Now this idea of having both Sakuras in LAMA gear was an idea that I had for a while ago as I did thought of having a picture with both of these characters in the same picture ever since I've heard news that the Clear Card anime was coming out this month and this year and before you ask while I did already had someone else to have both Sakuras in the same picture, adding Clear Card Sakura was added in at the last minute as hey why have one when you could have two ^^;  Regardless I wanted my own version of this with Shoxxe drawing and me coloring but I didn't want it to be just the two characters as I wanted Tomoyo to join in as like I said, recording two Sakuras is a dream come true for her but because of the three character limit I had to choose one but I couldn't as while I wanted the old one I wanted to color the new one as well.  So I gave it some thought and figured that I want both of them and the only way to pull that off is to have two different pictures and combined them into one as much as that took a lot of time to do, that seemed like my only option but I did it.

Now before you go accusing me of copying the two picture idea as you seen that a couple of people have already done this kind of idea first and I'm just copying them, that is where you are wrong as remember the big Tokyo Mew Mew picture from a while back, that was my idea actually as I thought of having 2+ pictures and combining them to have more than 3 characters together.  Only thing different here is that I took in consideration about the dead zone in the middle.  If you seen some of the combine pictures you'll noticed and Shoxxe admitted this too that because of the space required in a picture requires the focus to have it in the middle and not to the side.  Here I made sure that not only that both Sakuras are as close as possible but I also recommended to add Kero to the right side of the left picture just to fill that dead zone and I think we did a good job on minimize that area.

Color was both a blessing and a curse  as most of my usual coloring is the same but with two things.  First is the background as in the line art you could see the surface water and I wanted to color that spot properly but I tried something different as I look at the cover of Part II and try to emulate the surface water and apply them there and overall I did a great job at that part.  The other is the frills and small details on Sakura's outfit which drat it Tomoyo I love you for designing her outfit as it looks great and would be something you would made in the show but drat it this was hard to color.  Seeing how it's transparent I had to erase the lines and put in color lines in it's place in which I wished I could of done a better job on that especially the skirt but everything else like the color details inside I did a well job there as well to hopefully hid that minor detail and the Jellyfish was more or less the same experiences.  Before moving on there's one more detail I have to point out which is the colors I used on both Clear Card Sakura and Tomoyo are different from what I've used from the Younger Sakura and Tomoyo as I did that on purpose.  It's always my policy to color the characters like from the original source and wouldn't you know it the colors used in the original anime are different in Clear Card and I get why as with Clear Card they wanted to match to the original manga in which Sakura's hair is light brown as appose to the original anime which is just brown.  I guess they didn't have the technology to make Sakura's hair light brown at the time but that's the reason why.

Now there are some things I wanted to point out like Clear Card characters seems...taller.  I mean sure there's a two year gap between them but they do seem a bit tall for 13 year olds which is kind of our bad.  I did as for the WIP of this but when I first got it Shoxxe already had most of the details of Clear Card Sakura's wetsuit and kind of at the point of no return without starting over and while he did try his best to fix this the need result is still having them silightly taller than usual so sorry about that.  Also normally I try to update Sakura's face to match it more to the anime but I didn't have the time to fix this and the person who I usually go to is unfortunately unavailable this time around so even though it kind of hurts me outside of minor clean up on the mouth I had to leave it as it is.

That's really it...I think it's safe to say that this is my new favorite colored work that I've done and what better picture to have that on.  My only regret is that I couldn't get this on time for the premire of the Clear Card anime due to Shoxxe's policy and luck.  That and the fact that coloring this took way longer than it needed to even though that it was worth it.  At least I was able to get this colored on the second best possible date, the day when the first Episode of Clear Card becomes free to everyone on Crunchyroll (outside of a few countries it seems so sorry about that) so Click here if you don't have Crunchyroll Premium so that you could watch it :)

Hope you love it :D
