This is a pre-production hanken that was used to create the pencil board (shitakjiki). What's a pre-production hanken? It seems that the process of making hanken cels is not altogether different from making any printwork. Create different versions, change styles a bit, see which ones the clients like, merge them together, etc. A message from anyone with more information on this subject would be very welcome.

In my opinion, this is a rare case where I think the pre-production version looks substantially better than the final image. Lum just does not need that extra makeup - she looks great without it. Feminists unite! You can also click on the inset to see a closeup of the shitajiki. (10x14")
