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:

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

This is so Western-centric. Regardless, if Sailormoon was White, I can't think of a better face.

sometimes i used to think about how much i wanted to do sailor moon.

often i would go back and just slowly masturbate while watching old episodes.

then i'd feel sad because i remember that she's 10. then again if she's aging chronologically she's probably fine.

nice art.

There were animes and movies that influenced me, too, so it's good to know that I'm not the only one. ^-^ Again, very nicely done. :heart:
