Sailor Mercury.  
So I have new art. This is just inks, but more art will follow in a few days.

Meanwhile, since you all are dying to know about my life, I'll share a few recent discoveries.

Discovery #1. Tofu diced and slightly fried in soy sauce and a bit of cooking spray tastes just awesome. I used to seriously dislike tofu. Now it's almost at the top of my current favorite foods list.

Discovery #2. All those immunization shots paid off. Digging through my boxes, trying to find my ink pens to ink this picture, I'd come face to face with some sort of flying stinging insect of the wasp variety. The impact of the insect with my hand shot pain through my palm and sent the insect flying towards the floor like a tiny brick. My mother was scared that I might have to go to the emergency room again, get an IV, that kinda thing. But my hand barely swelled where I was stung, and in half an hour it was all gone. All I have left is a little red dot where it happened.

Discovery #3. I still have a crush on my SOSC professor. Nuf said.

Recent good movie: Something's Gotta Give.
Recent bad movie: Mooseport.

Recent accomplishment: I finally finished Atlas Shrugged.
Recent almost-accomplishment: My webpage redesign is almost done. Yay.

And now for the picture. It's Sailor Mercury in the middle of her transformation. Enjoy :)

You deserve much fangirl love ^_^ It's a very nice picture- clean line art, and the swirly bits look both liquid and ribbony. Who was your SOSC prof again?

awww ^_^ danke :)

his name is hylton white. he's from south africa, he speaks with a british accent, he wears dark grey/black pants and medium grey shirts exclusively, he looks kinda like hugh grant does in notting hill, and he has this sparkle in his eye when something catches his attention... *swoon* all of the winter quarter, i'd try extra hard in that class, just so that i could say something worthwhile, just so i could see those eyes sparkle when he looked at me...

It's actually already been bought :)

1: Sorry about getting stung. Wasps are my phobia. I would have gone into total panic mode.

2: Oh God I love that pic. I know that wand. "Mercury star Power Make-up!"
Ami is my favorite senshie, tied with Setsuna. That is a gorgeous pic.

The entirety of the insect class is my phobia. Along with arachnids, millipeds and basically anything that's small and has an exoskeleton. My first sound when I got stung was a high-pitched scream, not because of the pain, but because of what attacked me. My second sound was a very loud "MOMMY!!!!!" ;)

I love their transformations! all of them. I'm rather annoyed though that the outers don't have their elemental "stuff" floating around them when they transform...

Ahh but the outers do have these blasts of their "elements" around them, like a tube of their element that when it disappates, leaves them in their senshi garb. XD I happen to adore Uranus, personally, with Mars on par and Jupiter a close runner up. I think of them as the bad asses of the Senshi group XD

I should scan Seiya pics from the manga for you...

And lovely pic, of course. I'd love to see it colored... :]

oh, nonono, i mean that the inners have their stuff encircle them and then turn into clothes and stuff... sailor moon especially of course, but other to a degree as well... with the outers (and with the inner transformations at the end of the series), the "stuff" is just a veil, under which the transformation is instantaneous... it looks cool, but it's not the best drawing material ;)

I LOVE Uranus. She kicks so much butt. Neptune is too femenine for me... she acts too much like a damsel in distress... except for that one ep of S or SS that I saw where Haruka was tied down and Setsuna had to choose between rescuing Haruka or getting some Thing that could potentially destroy the world. And the bad dude asks her, "what, that chick's more important to you than the world?!" and she answers "oh, but you don't understand. Without Haruka, there IS no world." which I thought was very cool. ;)

I also dig Mercury and Jupiter in the live-action... and Venus cause she's gorgeous *lol*

I wasn't gonna color it... but I was thinking of putting up a big monocrome version of it up in case someone else wants to color it :)

Hmm...you could draw it, I think. The inners trandformations are instantaneous as well, just drawn out by the animators so they didn't have to spend as much time animating the ep XD. Mars' tranformation really consists of a bunch of fire rings that make the outfit...and I've always thought of the outer senshi as one really big ring that as it passes over the body, "molds" or "melts" the element on the skin into the outfit. So you could draw it in mid-melt from the interior view of the transformation. XD

I'll have to go back and watch it again.

Neptune I think was supposed to be the uber fem of the cast -- the rich, upperclass woman, so to speak, a stark contrast to all the inner senshi, who are more kids than "women". I'm not that fond of her because I think her submarine reflection is an absolute joke...but anyways :]

Waiii! I've never seen the live action. ;_;
Maria Korchaginyllafairy on June 22nd, 2004 12:06 pm (UTC)

get it. watch it. the first episode hits you hard with the cheesyness of the transformations and the fights, but by the 3rd episode, i was hooked. ;)

I am going to have to send you . . .
$$ to get my Sailor Senshi character drawn and some other characters too, Ylla.

You will like drawing them. I'll send you an e-mail concerning this later tonight or today.
