Pose Reference:

"Hey There Sailor" by: :iconsenshistock:

Holy crap! I'm actually posting something?! O_O;

Apparently so, although to be honest I originally drew this over two years ago (about a week and a half before the new anime was announced...and then we had to wait two years for it) when I saw "Hey There Sailor" by SenshiStock and thought "I haven't drawn SailorMoon herself yet and this pose suits her." So, using various art from the manga as a reference, I drew this up...then sort of forgot about it.

Fast forward two years later and I'm putting files on my new laptop when I find the PSD file. I needed to get back into digital painting and, combined with SailorMoon Crystal finally premiering in July, so I decide to touch up the image in order for it to match up with my current painting style...even though my more animu style from two years ago it still prominent. Ah well, maybe I should stick to the animu style for Sailor pics? :confused:

So here's the Pretty Soldier of Love and Justice herself...and that's about all I have to say. ^.^;

Long Senshi Legs are Loooooooong.

Awesome colours and pose here! I like how her hair almost seems to be shining here, which is a great touch and attracts the viewer's attention very effectively. The composition is stunning as well, du to the placement of the letters and the moon pattern behind her. A small suggestion: her skirt looks a bit too stiff, almost like metal. I think it's because it's too shiny looking, almost, and the pleats look quite stiff.

Thank you. You know, you're right about the skirt. Do you think blurring it a bit and turning down the contrast would help? :confused:
Reply
:iconcharcoalfeather:
charcoalfeather Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I think so, but adding some folds in her skirt that aren't so straight (maybe part of her skirt can be flying in the wind a bit) would help, too.

:iconhotaruthodt:
HotaruThodt Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2014   Digital Artist
I can give it a try. Maybe lighting the lines on her skirt may also help. This is what I get for using the anime as reference for too long. XD

Oh wow! I actually used the same stock photo to draw Sailor Mercury a few months ago! Nice work! :love:
This pose really does suit the Sailor Moon gals! =P

Very unusual to see this from you, actually. But I am surprised in a really good way! i have to say that I like how Sailor Moon is a lot curvier in your style. I always thought Takeuchi's style was making her look very unrealistic and well… I just can't egt over how the original Sailor Moon is just a little torso with long (in some panels looking like 2 meters) stick legs.
So yeah, really great interpretation of this famous character!

:iconhotaruthodt:
HotaruThodt Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2014   Digital Artist
Well, it's not too unusual, I just haven't drawn any sailors (or anything really cute for that matter unless you count Marvin the Martian) lately. : )
I know what you mean about Naoko's style. I mean I love her style and it influenced my own a bit, but the super long legs and occasional weird bendiness of it was weird.
Thank you. I hope to be able to draw the others at some point. : )

I've seen some footages from the new series. (Haven't watched a full episode yet) Maybe it's just me, but I think they have made Sailor Moon even thinner O_o

:iconhotaruthodt:
HotaruThodt Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2014   Digital Artist
Well, Naoko Takeuchi drew SailorMoon really thin with super long legs and since the new anime will (hopefully) be following the manga closely, it would only make sense that her style be implimented. : )
