*Gasp! Pant!* My gosh!!! This is like the biggest thing I've ever done. I'm so glad I did it though. ^^

Okay, it was all coloured pencils and outlined in a 0.4mm pen for the body and 0.2mm pen for the hair and facial features. I'm going to be nice and tell those that want to know that I achieved the background look by using pencil shavings and rubbing in the colour and cut outs of hearts and stars where I didn't want any colour.

I must admit I had so much fun doing this and it's totally been worth it. I'm extremely proud of it in the end.

I love Minako's pose and her dress - such a nice colour. ^_^ (Orange is my favourite colour.) Mako-Chan's boots and shorts came up great. The ribbon on her wrists looks pretty good too even if I did have to rub her out and draw her again. I nearly cried. x__X

I really loved doing Rei's and Usagi's hair and I think Rei's in particular, came out great although it took me forever to get it right. Ami is just so cute and I love her pose and skirt.

Anyway, those are my thoughts on this piece- I just had to put them down although I could keep babbling on about it for ages yet. Feel free to use this image as a wallpaper too although no adjusting it and reposting it as your own. I've already noticed several people have been into Ryutaro Hino's stuff. He does heaps of Hotaru images which looks just like an anime image but isn't so people can be forgiven if they got the image from somewhere and didn't realise.

Anyway, post me a comment and let me know what you think!

Love Ralinde* ^_-

RalindeWow. Have not been on this site forever or drawn anything for that matter. You know what - I figured out why the legs and arms look like sticks. It's because the boobs and hips are too small/undefined. Throws the whole thing off and makes it look like that. OMG - I really should draw something just to see if I've actually improved any. Ha ha!

Jet_lunarskyeBeautiful drawn picture! OMG, I can't believe I never noticed this picture before! Please draw more pictures! You've totally inspired me to continue drawing! I love how you gave each girl a unique wardrobe that fits their senshi color. Makoto is my favorite senshi, but I LOVE Ami-chan's outfit the best. Excellent use of shading and the poses are great. Please, please continue drawing. This is going on my favs. Hope to see a lot more! ^_^

RalindeThank you! Twas lovely to get a comment from you since I've been wondering what you've been up to lately. It's been a while since I heard from you.

Thanks once again!

ShadowWingNice very nice. I like this one. The background looks great! I think Raye or Ami might be my favorite this time, but I definetly love Usagi's hair! Still love you're coloring skills! Hopefully my piece for you will be up to par. ^_^

RalindeYay! Someone thinks I did a good job on Usagi's hair! Thank you and for the comments on my colouring skills too. You know, Usagi used to be my favourite and then I moved on before I started drawing Sailor Moon characters to Sailor Venus so this is my first attempt really drawing her. I think Ami came out the best in this piece. I always seem to enjoy drawing her and she turns out well.

Thank you once again!

RalindeWow! Thanks!!! ^_^ It's an awesome kind of feeling when people have nothing to say so I seem to have done well. I wouldn't go so far as to say I'm a pro but that's okay because I'm always working towards that kind of thing.

Thank you once again!!

RalindeWhy thank you! They took me so long to do in some cases. I'd never drawn shoes like Minako's before so that took me ages but it was well worth it. Shoes are something I've spent a lot of time practicing to get right.
