This art print is from the original illustration used for the bonus poster accompanying the laser disc "Kimagure Orange Road TV Series Vol. 1," released by VAP Inc. (1988).
On the Original, from Akemi Takada
The two characters were masked before the background was colored in, then the characters were colored in after the background was done.
I wanted a simple touch for this work, so I used Liquitex to draw in the leotards, Liquitex's Acra (currently Quinacridone) red for the shadows, and pastels for their skin.
I used an orange-pink shade of Acra to adjust the tone generally. Sadly, this shade was discontinued...

We were able to replicate the delicate orange-pink color by using orange-colored ink.
