Sailor Neptune by Spelarminlind Sailor Neptune by Spelarminlind
I have such wonderful memories from when I was little and used to tape every single episode of Sailor Moon. I would probably have continued to watch it had they not started showing it on a pay channel and my parents were unwilling to buy more channels. Sailor Uranus and Neptune never made an appearance before that happened and so I found out about their existence several years later (although I loved the series I was never much into the fandom). They are still two of my absolute favorite characters from the series, and Neptune in particular.

If there is one thing I love about Sailor Moon, except for how sincere the series is with its beautiful message, it is the gorgeous art. At times the manga itself seems inspired by Mucha and there are some really fluid poses. It is like one big celebration to woman.

I actually do not have the time to paint right now but today I felt that I would only be able to pace around in circles unless I got to draw Sailor Neptune (of all things). It was absolutely crazy. As I had other things to do I kind of rushed but as I do not really have anything to post I thought it could be nice to add some Sailor Moon fanart to my gallery.

I have no time to come up with anything witty or good to say about this drawing, Sailor Moon or Michiru ^^; In any case, she is the typical kind of character I tend to like. One day I would like to draw Samus and Zelda as Haruka and Michiru.

You matched Michiru's personality so well in this artwork, especially with the lines!

Amazing series when I was growing up. Loved running home to watch it on Toonami(rest in peace) and finding and reading the manga. This is a lovely piece. Love the color and water feel.

Thank you most kindly. I loved the series too when I was little and I am so jealous of you for having read the manga.

Thank you ever so much :rose: That is without a doubt one of the most flattering comments I have received.

If a print would be for sale I would be afraid of copyright issues ^^; and the original... Well, I am hesitant to part from it.

could i ask though, if i where to ask you to do an uranus in the same style, how much would you like for it?
Reply
:iconspelarminlind:
Spelarminlind Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2013
I am not sure. I do not know what the general price class is, because I have never sold anything (I do not want to ask for too much). Unfortunately I have accepter a number of requests and because of personal matters I am lagging behind.

I have already intended to make one of Uranus and I would be happy to send you a note when I finish.

I love this pic. It has a creative style that stands out in a large array of other artists works. The pose and the face are so equally soft, feminine and sensitive. The colors and the light blend so well. Very lovely piece.
