COMMISSIONS ARE OPEN!!

Sailor Moon. Forever my childhood hero <3

Man, oh man. I've been working on this on and off since.... tuesday? I had to take a little break from commissions to keep my muse alive (so sorry, commissioners.... I'm getting right back on them tomorrow!) but I realized I didn't have a coloured pencil example in my gallery. Coloured pencils are my most expensive commission and the reason why is how freaking LONG they take me to finish! Hell, I think just the background and butterflies took me almost a whole day. Yes, I work slowly.... so sorry... But here she is! Coloured in prismacolor coloured pencils which were really quite fun to use. It was kind of like a blast from my past since for a LONG LONG LONG time that's all I used for colouring. I daresay my technical skill has improved some since then.... haha. Unfortunately my scanner kind of killed the colours.... it looks MUCH prettier in real life but I did my best to clean it up in Photoshop...!

Anyway, Super Sailor Moon here in a blend of her manga and anime uniform. I love how Naoko uses a gradient on her skirt and collar... it's really too bad the anime couldn't do it. But back in those days it would have been ridiculously expensive to try and do it I suppose. But still. I tried to pay tribute to both the anime and manga styles here. Super Sailor Moon is still my favourite of her uniforms <3

The title isn't very creative, I know. Named after the always recognizable opening song, ムーンライト伝説 or "Moonlight Legend" in English.

I had a ton of fun drawing it, I hope you all enjoy looking at it too!

Also, thinking of selling the original... anyone wanna make an offer on it?

Super Sailor Moon Naoko Takeuchi

Wow this is pencils!! When I first saw this I thought it was markers cause the colours are so vivid!! It wasn't until I read your comments I knew it was pencils - had to do a double take & everything!!!

Awesome picture! I was such a big Sailor Moon fan!! I used to video it off the TV at my sister's house (Cause we didn't have cable :<)
I especially love the colouring in the background! It's just so pretty!! :heart: I can see why it'd take you a long time!!

Yeah, I had to resist the urge to marker it, but I made up for it by markering another Sailor Moon picture afterwards.... haha! Thanks so much! I used to watch it on TV too, until I discovered the internet and how to mail-order fan-subs... haha!! Thank-you again bb <3333

Oh don't worry, it's okay, even though I'm not into Sailor Moon anymore, it's really influenced me in my life and my writings. I'm an aspiring author, and writing Sailor Moon fanfics back then has really shaped my writing skills and how to develop characters. You can check out my original stories in my gallery anytime. :thanks: My last Sailor Moon fanfic was back in 2002, and in it, I married off the Inner Senshi with the former Dark Kingdom Generals, and the Outer Senshi with the Planetary Knights, which I came up with. They all have daughters to carry on their names and legacy. I thought it was a nice way to say goodbye to an amazing show and manga. :) Thankfully, everyone loved it and I've gotten no flack or rants for ALL the Sailor Senshi marrying awesome guys. ;) So no, no worries, I'll always remember it. :thanks: You're so welcome, I'm such a big fan of you and your art! :D
