Venus Celestial Power, Make Up!
Here's an animated video that I finished months ago, but didn't get around to post until now.
I consider it really pretty, and I put a lot of hard work into this, only to put all the pieces together and realize that this is not what I wanted at all. This looks nothing like anime transformations I look up to, even though it's pretty interesting at its own. At the same time, I can't "fix it" by adding or deleting some scenes, I can only redo it completely to get what I want, starting with the entire concept, or maybe even with the music. But that will probably take another couple of months at best.
Posting something you aren't satisfied with feels weird, but it's also the first step towards admitting that the work has been done and has not been done in vain, it's just that I didn't initially realize the concept was wrong.
I'm not saying it's bad though. Watch it! It's pretty!
Found one of my first Sailor Moon - related drawings (10+ years old) and decided to make a quick redraw. Isn't Sailor Venus just the cutest?!
Original picture + some info under the cut
This picture here is probably my first Sailor Venus drawing ever! Her design is supposed to be different from the series, since it's actually from another Sailor Moon AU I've had (the one with the Sailor Earth, we all had one of those at some point in the Sailor Moon fandom). For this redraw, I've decided just draw her in the Celestial outfit from Sailor Moon Space. I wanted to incorporate the flow of her hair and her bow into the redraw and, of course, i've kept the lovely hearts in the background and her cute wink! I've only changed her pose slightly to make it more balanced, since at this point of my art I can actually stop hiding the hands of the characters I draw behind their backs.
(fake) DVD covers for Sailor Moon Space, Crystals (arc one) and Shadows (arc two).

For every anime opening, there should be an anime ending! The absence of the ending for Crystals arc, despite all five episodes being already written, bugged me, but the absence of glasses bugged me even more, so I've decided to throw together an ending based on a traditional drawing (as a nod to the original Sailor Moon anime too). I quite like how it turned out! Maybe the second ending should be traditional too? It could be a nice tradition (heh).
Anyway, the ending and opening lists are added to all the episodes of the Crystals arc now, so you can play them before and after reading for a true anime experience...
