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:

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

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!

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
