Sailor Moon: Through the Years by furesiya Sailor Moon: Through the Years by furesiya
So I'm entering this into a contest~
The idea is to show with a picture and 100 written words only, what Sailor Moon means to you.

100 is so little... But I think I managed. And I hope this shows quite well my journey through art >A> all thanks to Sailor Moon inspiring me in the begining. I also wanted to mention cosplay since my sister and I had our dad make us Sailor Moon and Sailor Jupiter costumes back around when it came out, then I also made a full set of 5 later in middle school. There wasn't enough room though 8'D.. and my sewing hasn't gotten that good.. drawing definitely outstriped that :iconartemissailormoonplz:
Also, its actually more specific, the story, but I had to super simplify  to fit the reqs xP

Anyways. Here's this.
Tomorrow I'll upload the full version of the picture as well as a wallpaper maybe.



:iconsmplz: my 100 word entry:

SailorMoon was the first thing that inspired me to really start drawing. I was ten years old when it started airing in America, and its had me in its grasp ever since.

Ever since, I've practiced and learned all sorts of techniques, growing far past anything that ten year old girl could have ever imagined when she first put pencil to paper to draw those iconic characters.

Now, thanks to it, I have art as my passion and job.
For this contest especially, I created this new painting to see just how far I've come and still want to go.

P.s. If anyone might be thinking,. If it came out in 95, how did I have somehting of SuperS, with Helios etc. (net was not a big thing for us then..) but what it was, was that we lived in Hawaii. My sister and I had mad access to all sorts of Japanese merchandise once we knew what we wanted to look for *u* )

Heeeeee. It turned out soooo freakin' amazing, Fure! ;o; Just seeing the original two in comparison was mind-blowing, but the third add-on just leaves me speechless. :iconlazycryheartplz: <3

Your Picture and your Story about Sailor Moon and you is interesting. Sailor Moon was my first Anime, too. I loved it to draw, but with Sailor Moon, I had good references to learn more and more.

I hope you win this contest, because your new Picture of Sailor Moon is amazing and it is amazing what you have learnd in the last ten twenty years inspired by the Moon.

Much luck, and have a nice day! :party:

Hehe I was a huge Sailor moon fan myself. It was pretty much the first time I saw an Anime and the whole manga and Anime world caught me ^^. I really like this picture cause of it´s great colors, but I´m not 100% confident about the proportion of chest to hips. Anyways great Improvement <3
