Sailor Scouts by KLSteeleArt Sailor Scouts by KLSteeleArt

My rendition of the Sailor Scouts.

I want to first say, these Sailor Series was a personal project, and not everyone will agree or like how I have depicted them. This project was to show how I have always seen the Sailor Scouts - as strong women. The Sailor Scouts were mere teens, and embodied everything teenage girls are. They are dramatic, fixated on true love, finding themselves and their individuality. But they grew and developed into strong, independent women who overcame obstacles every single day.

Obviously my versions are not teens, they are women. They are the scouts grown up and they wear their title with pride.

I would also like to credit Artgerm for inspiring the costume seaming. He drew a wonderful costume for supergirl and I was deeply intrigued by the seeming he used to define the shape.

By far the best and most realistic looking interpretation of the Sailor Scouts. Gotta love how you made them into women instead of girls. They look mature and determined. Awesome!

My God! They are so perfect! I love their beautiful legs and sexy sailor senshi costumes! I literally fapped to this! 😻😻😻 I used to watch Sailor moon since i was 6-7 years old and i was in love with them! I wanted to marry sailor moon. I remember in 2nd grade, i was kissing the tv when sailor moon came on when i came home running from school.

Ah! Finally:squee: . Women who are strong, beautiful and proud+favlove . Moreover, the have real feminine bodies and not an inch of fan-service. Their faces seem so real, it's amazing.

Be proud of the way you depict women, bravo!

"I am purposely ignoring comments that pertain to them looking like 'men' because they are toned, or may be thicker in some areas, or their noses."

Ugh. Yet you feel the need to address them.
Seriously, I was ready to favorite this picture, as I think it looks fantastic.
I especially like the fact that you drew them more realistic, but this reaction makes you look weak.

Some of the greatest comments I have gotten is from women saying they are now proud of the size of their legs, or their face, or the fact that they have toner arms."

Don't hurt your back by patting yourself so much.

Again, very disappointed you've chosen to address those people, instead of letting it slide.

This is not some discrimination nonsense. People are used to seeing these particular characters differently, that's why they react in such a way. Everybody who does re-designs or re-imaginations gets these type of messages. "You did the nose wrong!" "That's not how he/she is supposed to look like." All that is not discrimination, it's people who are too stupid to understand what re-design actually means.
KLSteeleArt Featured By Owner Edited Sep 13, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
While those were not actual quotes from what I said, I know what you were getting at. You know what. I respect your comment. You are right. I shouldn't care. I usually let things slide on things like this, but for some reason I was unable to on this. I have personally removed the edited part of the description and I am letting it go (No Frozen pun intended). Thank you for knocking the sense back into me.

As for the 'patting myself on the back', that was not my intention and I apologize for it coming off that way. I should have worded that statement better. It is comments like those however that make me feel good about the decisions I made, and I was happy that my art had that kind of affect on someone. As an artist, I think that is the point of what we do, is to make people feel something or think something personal and individually to themselves.

I appreciate you taking the time to write this out, as I think someone being that direct about how I was feeling about the things a select few had said was needed.
