After the Battle by Cellesria After the Battle by Cellesria
Hey everyone! :D

Well, I finally took some time to work on this old fan-art piece that I started a while ago (on the side of my art-book project) and I think I will now consider it finished. I could have worked into it a lot more but I'm pretty satisfied with this result though I may change my mind and work into it again a bit later.

I was initially inspired to paint this image after recently re-discovering Sailor moon again. I used to watch it with my little cousin as a young teen and seeing it again recently brought back a ton of memories and inspiration to create this piece.

My goal for this painting was to create a sexy and more realistic depiction of Sailor Moon and Tuxedo Mask in a steamy/sensual embrace. I wanted to maintain as much likeness as I could whilst making them look more realistic. I hope I pulled it off! :)

Here is a link to a previous blog post with the work-in-progress! [link]

During the process of creating this work, I made a rose petal effect brush which I decided to make available to download as a thank you to all of you other digital artists who check out my blog. When using this brush it's helpful to blur the petals a bit to create a sense of movement. This brush was created using Photoshop CS5, Enjoy!

You can download the brush through a link in my original blog post here [link]

And here is a close-up as well. :) [link]

Painted using Photoshop and Painter!

Update: I have received quite a few requests for more Sailor Moon fan-art and have decided to create more as I find time. If you have any ideas or suggestions as to what you'd like to see me paint next please let me know. I'd be happy to hear your ideas! :)

Update (9-15-12) Supposedly there will be a new Sailor Moon anime series coming in 2013. This new series is supposed to appeal to older fans. Would be nice if they would continue where they left off but I guess we will see. :)

This work is dedicated to all of you older Sailor Moon fans! ;)

Hope you all like it and thanks for your visit! :D

The new anime is a remake. Starting from book one. Not to mention the actual anime in japan was rated PG-13 (or the Japanese extent). Umm--it's going to be about the Sailor Senshi. In color. The normal anime stuff. Hopefully not perverted as heck. And tasteful like the manga. The reason it's more catered to adults--it's being based off the manga far more strongly than the original.

Nice, btw. Made me do a double take when I realized where Mamoru's hand was!! O_O

This. Is. Mind-blowing. wow, your attention to detail is impeccable! They look so real! it's like...after the camera's stopped rolling and things turned a little hotter than Y7 (which, by the way, I don't think is an actual rating.) I would love to feature this as cover art for the book I'm writing. Here's the link if you're interested.
