Sailor Moon inspired painting and Art Giveaway contest

When I was a little girl I was obsessed with the cartoon Sailor Moon. In the mornings before school I would watch it on TV while eating breakfast. It began a life long appreciation for anime, comics and alien warrior princesses which ultimately contributed to the development of my artistic style.  To my extreme delight, for the 20th anniversary of Sailor Moon, a new version was released in 2014 called "Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Crystal." This new release rekindled my obsession with the anime series and so I couldn't help but do a little fan art tribute.

It started with this pen and ink drawing in my sketchbook:

I was pretty excited with how the sketch came out so I decided to do a painting based on it:

"Sailor Lucid" 
original acrylic painting by Chelsea Rose


I made sure to add my signature third eye, as well as the single daggered pupil I draw all too often.
 I think it worked well, lending Sailor Moon a very eerie, whimsical, mysterious edge.

The full original painting is available in my etsy shop for $200. Interested in giving her a good home?
 Have a look here.
