Here is the finished piece in watercolor. Not quite Arthur Rackham but I wanted something fairly kid-friendly and light and delicate. I used a .25 Koh-I-Noor to ink everything after I applied the watercolors with a #3 brush.
This piece actually took me longer than my typical superhero pencil work! Mostly because I had to pause and think about my approach at every step of the process. I think I could have spent many more hours just doing character design--that's how trippy these characters are.
Here is a larger scan.
