Mystery Project #5

A year ago I was lamenting how I'd never pull off something like that epic Zelda fanart in a million years. Well, much like every other prediction I make about my art, disregard that.

Today is the 20th anniversary of Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon's first episode airing in Japan. I had wanted to finish this tribute by then, but there was no way that was going to happen, so I figured I might as well give you guys a glimpse. At least I can aim to get it done within this year! :)

Close-ups from the most finished part (100% zoom):

This must be the first successful kid-face I've painted in, well, ever.

(Yup, all those portraits in the past few months were warm-ups for this. And also they were fun :3)

Aw, that's wonderful! I'm now like you were last year (though you were already way better than me a year ago, so it will take me longer even if I get there, I don't think I'll ever emerge from the neolithic cave).

I was going to say that one of my favourite pictures is of sailor moon and was going to point you to it, but now I realise (I hadn't put two and two together) that it's actually one of yours!

I don't actually know sailor moon, but I've seen loads of excellent fan art that I feel like I know it.

What tool/brushes do you use to paint? I'm trying to find a more paintery kind of tool. I realise most of that is my technique, but I've never been able to find a tool I'm comfortable with. If I knew what you used I could just stick to that.
