Forty Years of Magical Girls by KoriMichele Forty Years of Magical Girls by KoriMichele
She's finally here!

I dropped the ball on the character-by-character reveals for a while there (who knew getting married was so much work?) but here it is, fully revealed on the internet!

I'll be selling 23 x 35 inch posters at Another Anime Con ( [link] ) in Nashua, New Hampshire next month (October 14 through 16), along with the trading-card counterparts! Come see me! And buy one!

The original painting is 23 x 30 inches (active area 16 x 36.)
Holbein watercolor and gouache on Arches watercolor paper. Poster was designed by my partner (and now husband!) Peter Selmayr.

Phew!

Exelent work thanks for sharing, i recognize a lot of this girls but not all of them, my favorites are honey, Utena, Hikaru from magik knigth rayearth, cure black and white, my favorites and in my opinion the best of the Pretty cure franchise, and more importantly you draw them using the suits of the first season, my opinion the best suits were those because they ilustrate what the series original idea, these are my favorites but the others are good too i love Nanoha but the last part the last season was a bit slow for my taste and there were parts that i didnt like, also certains things in the series and actitud i didnt particularly likePretear and Corrector yui i love them too but not so much as other, dont misunderstand me there were very good series, awesome, but well you know not as good as others, tokio mew mew i wastch only one chapter and i think i didnt like so much, thats it, the girls at the bottom i dont recognize them maybe if i know the series i watch them, thanks for sharing these awesome and beautiful work full with awesome memories, and characters that define in my opinion the gender that maka anime so famous

I can't believe I recognize the "duck girl" in this picture. Didn't something happen to her every time she heard the word "quack", or something like that? I'm male, so I tried to purge all memory of her from my brain, but it didn't quite work... :iconaahplz:

I'm probably going to portland this fall, if you want to meet up! I could probably drive to brunswick, driving in ME is way less scary IMO. Not as many big highways.

Lovely idea for a poster! I wish I were close enough to come to that conT_T. You don't ever plan on coming to any cons in the southeast, do you?
Reply
:iconkorimichele:
KoriMichele Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2011  Professional Traditional Artist
Thanks! No, South East cons are not in my plans yet, sorry! Mostly I stick to the northeast. Might venture a little lower to midcoast eventually. If you were really interested I could see about shipping one? Might get expensive, with tubes and all.

Hehe, I think eventually we might overlap. I have been wanting to go to some cons more north of me. I'll be graduating soon, so hopefully I'll actually be able to.

feel really bad that I can't name all of these beautiful magical girls... All I know are Pretty Sammy, Sailor Moon, Sakura, Hikaru, and Ichigo. ^^; Who is the lovely lady at the very top in the center?

At the top center is Lyrical Nanoha.
