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.

This very much reminds me of the episode about that artist who used Mamoru and Usagi as models in her painting.

Oh I loved that episode! The awkward tension between them while sitting together was funny. It was cute and is one of my favorite episodes!

I love the realism that you have created! :) Usually people try to re-create Usagi as realistic as they can and it doesn't look too fantastic. You have done this flawlessly. I adore it!
I would love to see some more Usagi and Mamoru pictures with the same tone and theme you have captured here :)

This is quite a good work, truly beautiful and erotic in a delicate way.

My only concern is about the use of black in the shadow parts (a flaw I'm trying myself to adjust in my own works) : the image loses in intensity because of that. Try instead to contrast your image with colored greys, or very saturated dark colors.
For instance, in Sailor Moon's big bowtie, you'd rather use a very saturated and very dark red to color dark parts, instead of using black and desaturated grey. Otherwise it looks a little "dirty". Sorry, my English is not always good. See what I mean ?

Thanks a lot for your kind comments and critique. I don't ever use pure black or white though even though I know the shadows in the image may look black. I"m not sure about your monitor settings but I always create a color scheme and stick with it during the whole painting process - in this case I used a triad of red, blue and a yellow green shade. I think with the lighting that I created perhaps some of my shadows weren't saturated enough or something like that and that's why they may look flat. I always use contrasting colors when creating lighting and since some of my highlights contained light yellow green I contrasted that by using dark violets and blues in my shadows and some of them may look flat since they may not be saturated enough. I never use pure black or white though in any of my work.

Thanks again for your feedback! :)
