She is Always There to Defend by ArtistMeli She is Always There to Defend by ArtistMeli
Had a break from commissions, so I decided to finish up the series. :) I'll probably throw together a group pic sometime soon, as well.

Final in the series:

She should've been the sexiest of all Sailor Senshi (surpass the outers as well). I truly liked her! :D

Rei La Emoticon

Notice: Her eye is purple, not red.

I'm not a huge fan of the "prototype" outfits, but you've made them look great!

Yeah, some of them are pretty crazy!  I tried my best to make them work, thanks. ^_^

You should make prints of these. A poster series would be perfect. I wish I had a wall big enough.

Sadly, the originals are only done to be printed at a maximum of 4"x6". I started them mainly as practice in SAI, and then they became ridiculously popular! I'd love to get them printed as postcards, and I was trying to make a poster with all the main figures in it, but I stalled out trying to figure out a background. ^_^;

I really want all of these poster sized down the whole wall. >_<
But I understand, it's difficult to work with printing in mind.

I have *really* thought about re-doing them at a larger size... 11x17, or thereabouts.  Right now I just have no time.  x_x   My video game project is starting to pick up, so I'm working like crazy on that, but maybe it's something I can work on slowly in my "free time" (haha).  I'd like to be able to offer them on shirts on Redbubble, as well.

Thanks! I think they're more interesting to draw than the standard senshi fuku, even if some of them are a bit impractical!

It's a lot of fun. ^_^ Kind of silly, usually, but Sailor Moon is one of those shows I watched as a teen that I still get nostalgic about.

Allegedly the series addressed more and more mature themes as it went along and the characters actually grew older, since the creators planned for the target audience to mature as they followed the show.

Do you know if there is any truth in this?
Reply
:iconartistmeli:
ArtistMeli Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
There is definitely truth in that. The show is surprisingly deep, and *really* funny, not afraid to poke fun at itself at times, but still gets serious when it's called for. Unfortunately, it does suffer from a lot of the problems that anime from that time is known for; lots of filler, inconsistent quality due to low budget and multiple animation teams, lots of recycled animation. But it's worth watching if you have the time to go through a 200 episode series. Just don't watch the English dub, it's more dumbed-down than any of the other versions. :P

If at all possible, I avoid dubs at any cost, from bitter experience.
