So, if I want to get digital, a single pic with 450*600 pixels, maybe even with a blue palette would be great. I just found a book on my harddrive with some art from early 19th century - So no scanning but copying and pasting… I was worried that it is a little different stylewise, but, hey Manga…

Another thing I noticed was that having opaque elements is tricky. This is most relevant if you plan on having white or blond hair cover parts of the face. As you’ll be using a lot of white filling, and since white is considered to be transparent, the face will will shine through your hair.
In order to handle this, I have seen two solutions. Perhaps there are more?
#FFFFFFfor the transparent background and use
#FEFEFFfor the white-looking opaque foreground. This usually involves flood-filling those areas in Gimp or Photoashop and therefore requires well defined, enclosed areas. This is not always easy to achieve and takes a lot of time.
