Sailor Moon by Gabbi Sailor Moon by Gabbi
Done during livestream!
Where there were haystacks (or lack of thereof) and NO CAKE!
(I love livestream! XD Will probably do another tomorrow but with Avengers theme)

Soooooo! Anyway.
Sailor Moon fanart! :love:
I was feeling nostalgic and I was so happy about the fact that there will be a Sailor Moon remake in 2013... I just had to draw some fanart!
The Sailor Moon anime meant so much to me when I grew up, and I will always have a special place for it in my heart!

Sailor Neptune and Uranus are two of my favorites, but my BIGGEST favorite has always been Sailor Moon.
I felt very connected to her in so many ways when watching the series. We're both kind of idiots, and we tend to fall in love quite easily XD We both get attached to stuff and people, and we're not that good in school... (not as good as our friends at least)
Also I'm a cancer and my sign is the moon :la:

Who is your favorite sailor soldier?

I'm pleased with this illustration.
I was going to draw a compleatly different angle at first. Some kind of full body profile, but then I changed my mind, because I don't think I challange myself enough with my art nowdays... so I tried this angle instead, and I like it! XD

Hope you do too! <3

Want to see how I made it?
Look here: [link]




Made with Photoshop CS5 + Wacom Intuos 3

I can't decide between Mars or Mercury :XD:
I liked Mercury more when I was a kid because she was smart and shy (kinda like me) but the older I got the more I liked Mars for how no-nonsense and kickass she is. I guess that when I grew out of my calmer, shyer stage I kinda changed my favourite too... but I still like Mercury A LOT x'D So I guess I can't really decide.
I truly, truly hate Venus though x'D Or did when I was a kid for some reason. Now I just dislike her.

It's a really awesome picture anyway. The angle and pose looks great! :la:
And I love the shading and how the colours reflect on each other ^_^
Awesome! :dummy:

I felt a bit connected to Mercury too when I saw the series for the first time. Being kind of shy and studying a lot.
But in the end I've always felt most like Sailor Moon. Being a bit of an airhead, falling in love a lot, and caring a lot for friends and family.

I don't dislike Venus I think. XD Don't feel much about her in general really...
If there's a sailor soldier that I didn't like much, it was Sailor Pluto. Maybe it's because we never see her much in action. I like her design, but other than that I think she's boring.

(BWAHAHA... late answer is late)

I think that it's pretty fascinating that most girls can find at least one sailor soldier to identify with. So while I do think that Sailor Moon is way too hyped up now (because it's not very good when you get down to it) I think that it's a good thing to have in your background or something.

I've never really seen Pluto except during one episode I watched in German. Aaaaand that didn't make much sense because I was like... eleven. So I have no idea what she's like :XD:
But I have the entire anime on my external harddrive so I might just find out eventually, if I ever get to the point where I watch the entire thing.

Nostalgic is good! Sailor Moon and Pokémon was my first animes ever, and I feel very nostalgic for them both (along with Digimon which I watched some time later). :D

All in all I think it took somewhere between 5 and 6 hours to complete (from sketch to colouring).

Yes I think it's really interesting myself. :D I've heard from some people that I'm a quick person when I draw. In the end I don't think it matters much, but it's always interesting to see HOW and how FAST other people work. :D

Jag älskar dem alla! Det är svårt att ha favoriter känner jag.
Vi lekte Sailor Moon ibland (jag och mina kompisar när vi var yngre) och då fick jag alltid vara Sailor Jupiter för jag hade långt, brunt och vågigt hår! XD

Sailor Moon var det som jag fick typ 2 av mina vänner att titta på (bara ett par avsnitt), men jag älskade pokemon och digimon också, och det vägrade min vänskapskrets titta på! XD I övrigt var jag väldigt ensam med mitt anime/manga intresse...

Ja alla de där serierna är del av min "första våg" som jag brukar tänka den, haha! XD
Sailor Moon, Pokémon, Digimon, Beyblade och Dragonball är de första kontakterna jag hade med anime/manga, innan vi fick bra internet hemma och jag kunde utforska på egen hand. Då började man helt plötsligt se saker på japanska och engelska till skillnad från allt annat som varit på svenska :XD:

Var ensam också, men jag hade inte så mycket emot det större delen av tiden...

Hahah lite samma här plus att jag såg Cardcaptor Sakura på barnkanalen för flera år sedan. Så rullade på efter det hahah.

Ahh jo var lite så för mig med.

Min familj hade inte barnkanalen då CCS gick, så jag har funderat på att se serien i efterhand.
Är den värd att se fortfarande? XD Även om man är en gammal tant som mig?
