I am SO happy to finally get to debut this piece. I made it for APE 2012 and wanted it to be a show exclusive. But now, the show’s over so here it is. If you can’t tell who or what this is of, give it a second. Think. Percolate. Ruminate. It’s SAILOR MOON!!! Well, it’s the Sailor Scouts, but I named it for the tv show. I won’t deny that I watched this show (hardcore) during my childhood, and drew these girls nonstop. All my little girlfriends in the third grade and I would discuss episodes and draw little anime people. Cute, right?
I wanted to grunge up the girls a bit. The show is very saccharine and sweet and playful - which is fantastic, but as with anything I do, I have to add something else. Reinterpret things, make it mine. Not that reinterpreting this series is new, it’s been done to death. I always had a soft spot for Mars and Jupiter: one being super bitchy and hot headed, and the other being really athletic and hardcore. Both of them were far from boring, and you can see why I featured them so prominently (Mars may be my favorite in this piece). I only watched the series before the additions of other scouts, so I’m not as familiar with them. Either way I hope you enjoy the piece. It was a big hit at the con. It will be going up on my store in two sizes within the week :).
