This is a commission for atelierv
Created with Photoshop CS2, Paint Tool Sai, and Wacom Intuos3 tablet.
The commission details I was given was to draw a pinup of any character of my choosing. Plan A got scrapped due to a corrupted psd file (dont ask), so I opted for Plan B, a Manga/Sailor Moon Crystal Version of Princess Serenity.
Awhile back I saw some images online of backlit dresses (light behind the person or at the right angle) that reveal the figure underneath. So I decided to give it a try, but make a moonlit version. Back-lighting kinda drove me crazy for a number of hours, but eventually I got it right. Water is still kinda meh, but I wanted it transparent enough to see some of her dress yet. Also butts are hard to draw. D:
This was an artist judgment call, but I did not add the "butt bow". Since this was a commission especially for pinup art, I felt the bow would have taken more away from the figure in the image.
Anyway, I hope y'all like it.
