Pure vector graphics made in Inkscape 0.44 (www.inkscape.org), created one spline at a time, most semi-transparent or shaded. I think it ended up pretty good.
The process: Inked outline scanned and traced. When sufficient colour was applied, the original outline was removed.
A couple of closeups are included in Scraps gallerry.
