Sailor Chibi Moon - Teen by PaulineFrench Sailor Chibi Moon - Teen by PaulineFrench
YAY! PINK! And yellow!

I love making people angry with my color choices :D

*BLINDZYEW*

Sailor Mini Moon (Chibi Moon if you hate me for liking the American version)

I created my own uniform for her teen years since she doesn't get this far in the anime. Her character was always most adorable as a teen. To bad it was only for an episode =/ More ChibiUsa and Pegasus! =O

Based off the version of Sailor Moons uniform in Sailor Stars.


Mini Moon/Sailor Moon (C) Naoko Takeuchi
Drawing (C) Pauline French

Painting done on 10x15" Illustration board with gouache (most likely spelled wrong). Sakura Micron pens, Faber Castell brush pen, and white gel pen

Very nice!

You're actually very close to what Naoko-sempei, herself, designed for Chibi-Moon for the manga version of the Stars arc. I'll give you a few links - maybe when you reply {the computer I'm currently using is a bit slow}.

Thank you! I've actually heard that before and seen some pictures. It's neat that I came up with something so similar.

You're welcome.

This image is official, and should show why it has been said twice.

Actually this is pretty close to the eternal outfit Takeuchi did draw for Chibiusa. :nod: Let me see if I can find a link to the illustration...hmmmnnn no such luck. It may be on the web but I don't have the time to find it. It was on a pullout poster in one of the old tankoubans. :nod:

I like your color choices! It's visually very interesting. The pose is so spot on for Sailor Moon! I think going back over some of your lines when you finished painting would make it stronger. It would especially enhance the areas that are supposed to glow, where you would not want to reinforce the lines.

Hmm this is actually not too blinding lol. The colors actually work well together. O: I love the pose. Are those.. wings? The outfit and the coloring look really good! The shading on her face is a little flat (as in.. I realize that the light is coming from her right, but there would still be some shadows on the right side of her face)... Then again, this is anime still, so I guess that works too. xD And I like the random splashes of red. I bet you had fun flinging that paint. xD

I wish you could use the critique system. I'd like to get some use out of it, and you're the only one who ever really gives a good critique.

It's not blinding now, but it was before I updated it with a scan. The photo was horrible.

Her outfit and wings are based off of Sailor Moons design in Sailor Stars (Example: [link] ). I gave her fairy wings because of a character she meets in (I believe) the Super S movie. She develops a crush on a young boy who turns out to be stealing kids in their sleep, believing that he's actually helping them (or so I remember). He had cute little fairy/elf traits :D

Do you mean more detailed shading, or just more shading in general? I was going for a cell shading look, although I'm not patient enough for it, and the scan doesn't do it justice.

Splashes = awesome lol. I'm shocked at how well my yellow paint and splashes covered my mistake :P

Late reply lulz. This got buried.

Psh, I don't need the critique system. When it says 'critique requested,' I give a critique... I don't need DA's permission. r_r

I guess what I meant about the shading is... Hmm. *Looks* I think it's the mouth area. Even in a cell-shaded, anime-style picture, the shading would follow the contours of the mouth and the chin.. like here, in the left picture: [link]

..Over and out!

Aaah ok. The link doesn't work, but I think I know what you mean anyways.

Normally I avoid shading there. Mainly because it ages the character I'm drawing, and I don't know how to change that.
