OMG, I love your anatomy!! (And of course your art in general too :3) I hope you don't mind me asking, but how did you get so good at it?

Thank you very much!

really want to say that I’ve diligently studied anatomy and attended life drawing classes and drawn people around me in everyday situations but…that would be lying. Not only did I quit doing art in school at GCSE level (age 16) but I’m inherently lazy and have done none of those things despite knowing that they’d be really good for me. It’s not a recent revelation that my art has probably suffered because of this, and sadly I’m approaching those basic necessities from the wrong direction: attempting to break nearly a decade of bad habits rather than building a solid foundation to work from.

In all honesty, I’ve got to where I am through practice and trial and error. Okay, yes, I’ve vaguely looked at RL and read tutorials and I use reference pictures if I get stuck (that, or I’ve posed awkwardly in front of the mirror to see if a pose is, yanno, humanly possible), but for the most part I’ve just got by on what I understand about my own body and not given up if I get frustrated with my failings. Actually, I find sometimes giving myself a break instead of pushing and pushing to get it right is really beneficial. Things tend to sort themselves out in their own time with me. I’m also pretty open to accepting constructive criticism and taking suggestions (even if I have to back off for a while and take a breather, then come back at it objectively).

The thing about my art is that I do it purely for the enjoyment of it. I’m not trying to pay my bills or earn a living with my artwork - I draw because I find it both relaxing and mentally engaging and I like contributing something to my fandoms because I sure as hell can’t write fanfiction for shit. As a result, I haven’t pushed myself as hard or as far as I could probably go. Improvements are slow and steady and I’m pretty happy with that.

Having said all this, if you ever have the opportunity to take some sort of study in anatomy DO IT FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THINGS ARTY. Although I’m content with where I am and how I got here, I do regret not sticking with art at school (I had real issues with the art teachers there, and was taking the science and English route anyhow) or at least doing some sort of studying outside of books/online in the earlier stages of my drawing life because, as I said, it means I lack a solid foundation to work from.

Well…that turned into a bit of an essay. Sorry! I hope you get something out of my answer >__>;;

I really like your Sailor Jupiter redraw thingie. Very well done, I like your art style. Apparently the reason the original scene had the skirt defying gravity was because the creator of the franchise didn't want their girls having any fanservicey shots throughout the anime. I'm in no way complaining though, your drawing was a great redraw of the scene. Cheers. <3.

Thank you very much! I’m glad you like it <3

I can understand why they drew her skirt as gravity-defying in the original but considering how many other up-skirt shots there actually were in the show, you’d think that having her knickers showing in this scene would make more sense than the more gratuitous ones, and be slightly less fanservicey to boot because of the humorous element. I dunno, I don’t put much weight behind any comments (theirs, not yours!) about not wanting fanservice shots because evidence shows otherwise.

May I enable one of your art works as my profile picture? They're AMAZING!

Thanks, Anon! I’m happy for you to use my artwork if you drop me a message as yourself :D I won’t answer publicly if you don’t want!

Omg I want your art style to be how sailor moon gets done. OMG THE FIGHT SCENES

*cackles* There would be an abundance of flowing hair and ribbons and mysterious showers of rose petals. So, pretty much business as usual for SM!

I can just imagine the girls following Usagi everywhere with a wind machine and baskets full of sparkly stuff to chuck JUST IN CASE, you know? “GUYS, monster at 3 o’clock! FIND ME A PLUG SOCKET ASAP! Red petals in 3, 2…”

Have you done any Uranus/Neptune art? If so where can I see? Thank you. Your art is beautiful.

I’ve got a lot of unfinished SM yuri stuff floating around but alas, time is scarce these days. Unfortunately I have no finished Uranus/Neptune art (except that one I did in 2005 that will remain hidden forever) - sorry, Anon! :( The only thing I’ve got to show is this WIP, which is old old old, although I really want to finish it one day. This will probably involve starting from scratch. There will be lots of flowing material and falling rose petals. 

Also, thank you! I have a really bad habit of focusing on the question part of an ask and forget to say thank you for the lovely compliment (which makes me seem like an ungrateful prat, but your kind words mean the world to me and brighten my day, I promise!).
