Gift: Queen Selenity I - The Choice by Labtrinthine Gift: Queen Selenity I - The Choice by Labtrinthine
This picture also known as Regret, which is what I've really been calling it since I started drafting this at work. XD

This was originally for :iconelila:'s art-jam, but time ran away from me and I never did finish it. >.> Finally sat down and really worked at it, so now it's just a gift.

Quoted directly from *elila's journal:
"She has the power of second sight, being able to see the future (well, somewhat, she can't really control it) and communicate with the spirit of the moon crystal (aka. Selena, the first sailor moon).

She is given the "choice" of two possible futures: run away and live happily with the man she loves and bear no children, ending the moon line - or choose to stay, marry the man her parents have decided for her, and continue the bloodline that illuminates the galaxy; that will birth the saviour. (Yes, Selena has a tendency to use purple prose. much like me! :P).
"

At this point, she is still young, and has just had her 'vision' of the choice she will have to make. I can't imagine it's an easy choice to make - one one hand you have duty and the joy of children, on the other, true love. I imagine her heart must feel like it's breaking, and I hope that's what I managed to convey here.

Done with Copics and white gel pen.

Things for critique:

-The hair is lovely, I really like how it turned out

-The redness around her eyes looks just a little too much/spread too far. The little dab of red on the bottom of the nose is perfect. I like how you handled the tear running down her cheek.

-Her forearm is too long, and the hand a little small

-Her lower legs look pretty long compared to her upper legs. Making the middle of her thighs a little thicker might help with foreshortening

-Although I like the way the water looks, having a few wider, circular ripples flowing away from the bottom parts of the dress would make it look more realistic.

-I'm not a big fan of the sky with the short marker strokes around the character, but to be honest I don't know how to avoid that without layering the marker on super thick (and hopefully not smearing everywhere haha).

Hope this is helpful!
