Luna (in human form), from Sailor Moon
This process really struck a chord. Usually when I try to incorporate all my scratchy-hatching into a piece it turns into mud in the end. It was very fun to make this, it felt a lot more natural, and heck, it’s just nice to finally see it be something other than a really sketchy smudge in the corner of a process book. I have been wanting to draw Luna and her giant space dress for so long now, I was starting to think it’d never happen!
It’s taken me a really really long time to get used to drawing Veronica, or I guess to find her face. The past couple of pages and panels I worked on really made me feel good about her progress! Now I just need to get a whole lot faster.
One thing at a time!

Dedicated to my lovely ladybro Alliebirdseed.
Thanks so much Amaya, this is really beautiful!!
I’ve been trying to draw Luna now for a year. This isn’t even the composition I started with, but it is the farthest I’ve gotten so far. Hooray! Since this falls into personal projects, thats just sorta how it goes. It is literally going to take a hundred years to draw all the scouts at this rate.
Still, this works out. Though not really a part of the ‘draw all the scouts’ goal, I think it’s nice to begin with Luna in her human form. The story about her and the astronaut was my gateway to the whole series. I remember being pretty confused about a lot of things, having never seen or read Sailor Moon, and being approximately ten. But it left a massive impression on me, and I still love it.
Pencil and gouache (for the stars) on bristol, so far.
Allie posted up the fabulous decor piece she did for AUSA 2014 so I decided to put mine up too!
This is among a few character illustrations I’m doing for AUSA this year. the theme is fashion so we all get to do whatever we want basically and it kind of rocks.
Alexa did a decora piece for the show this year too!! This is so freaking cute, and I totally agree. The theme this year couldn’t be more fun to work with. Also I need the kitty socks she’s wearin on that one leg.
All done! Whew. Now all that’s left is to design a cover for the program book, but that’ll come a little later. Anyway, I really enjoyed painting this one a lot!
Coloring on flyer 3, a potential foray into dangerously loud colors! I’m doing my best to keep them from going crazy, It is very hard not to just make everything the most aggressive shade of pink I can mix. But then my eyeballs would explode.
Flyer 3, all cleaned up and ready for color!
Flyer number 3 is well underway! This one will feature a decora styled Kaede, the mascot for AUSA. Also, it gets a landscape layout! It just worked way better for her pose when I started roughing it all out. More fun, more dynamic, who even needs feet.
