Lovely! Your traditional work is a pleasure.
What makes it a cel, by the way, as opposed to just a drawing?

I'm pretty sure she drew it on animation cell "paper" which is basically a transparent sheet of plastic with the character painted on it. It's how old cartoons used to be done. I wish I could find some so I could try it!

Here's the brand I use! https://www.amazon.com/Grafix-Dura-Lar-9-Inch-12-Inch-Sheets/dp/B002542SZY/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1508329628&sr=8-1&keywords=duralar+clear

Thanks for the explanation! This is really cool.

OrangeSoiree has it exactly right. This is painted in 2 layers, one on Watercolor paper is the background and the Figure is painted onto a transparent plastic sheet over that. It's how animation cels were made in older animated movies.

Oh wow, I had no idea that's what cel meant! I'll have to look up more about this, it sounds really interesting. Thanks!
