Sailor Moon by Charlie-Bowater Sailor Moon by Charlie-Bowater
I vividly remember a few moments from when I was growing up that - as corny as it sounds, felt like they'd altered my life a little bit. One was when I was six years old and I watched The Little Mermaid for the first time and the other: Sailor Moon when I was thirteen. I can't even describe how much they blew my mind and I'm sure they're some of the biggest influences that nudged me into art. 

Both have a certain reverence with me and as much as I drew them growing up neither of them are something I've painted now that I'm older, there's definitely a feeling that whatever I paint won't do justice to it but; I adored Sailor Moon from the very first second I saw it on tv. I would wake up at the crack of dawn before school to watch this and then race home again afterwards to watch the repeat. I think it's about time I paid homage to one of my favourite anime's ever; Sailor Moon!

I am also totally effing stoked for the reboot coming soon! :la:

Many people have been touched by Sailor Moon because she is a representation of the true form of the Creator Goddess that was known long before the jealous god Chaos stole the hearts and minds of the people of earth. Serenity is the divine feminine that loves her creation very much and one day she is going to moondust the jealous god outta existence.

This is gorgeous. Sailor Moon was the first anime I had ever watch and was completely enamored! I remember rushing home to watch it on The Cartoon Network and being totally absorbed. I love this picture :)

This is so beautiful. I just love everything about this illustration. How Princess Serenity looks, this lovely shine of the crescent on her forehead and the pixie dust gently falling on her. So beautiful! :D
RobertaBurattini Featured By Owner May 16, 2015
I totally understand your first words so much! I still remember forcing my parents to take me watch the little mermaid 3 times at the cinema when it came out.. I couldn't have enough! And Sailor Moon in my adolescence has had a big impact for sure and introduced me to mangas...
Thank you for this illustration! One of the best I've seen so far!

Jontamar Featured By Owner Nov 12, 2014  Professional General Artist
I can very much relate to how you met with Sailor Moon, instantly loved it, got blown away, drew it a lot.. My exerience was somewhat the same. It was one of my first "obsessions" and it feels like it will always be with me, sort of : )

Amazingly beautiful art! Very well played with the light and shadows <3
