haruka, watercolor on paper
4 years of classical schooling and 5 years of professional illustration evidently couldn’t train the sailor moon fan art out of me.
i don’t know if anything will make me happier than watching old sailor moon movies while painting neptune and uranus. that series was one of the best things about childhood. no joke.
why can’t there be more entertainment about kick ass girls? and what’s with every villain also being female? i’m sure this show is doused in metaphor about femininity…or is some social commentary about women in modernity. maybe i’m just frustrated by the ubiquity of the “weak boy protagonist” :P
my point is, i love sailor moon. everyone is strong and at least a little gay. and that’s the best.
i hadn’t worked in real media since last july and i’m surprised how much more satisfying it is to paint in real life than digitally.
