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 13. 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:

This is so awesome!! I always imagined her with smaller lips but its just so surreal how normal and real you make her crazy anime character design seem. Its like you filled in the resolution with your imagination really seamlessly. Sailor moon definitely changed my life too, even if I look back and cringe a little at the messages it was sending me. This is just so great though.
