My friends, I come before you with an important question, one that is specific to those watchers of mine.........as well as many deviants that see my work..........who are loving fans of the Sailor Moon genre. I have browsed this site looking at many different artworks of Sailor Moon, ranging from everything and every topic. There is no doubt in my mind that so many are masterpieces worthy of the name, first-tier creations in my opinion. In addition to that, many have created their own unique characters, along with bios, storylines, basically good fluff that really enhances the beauty of the artwork itself. Yet again I must give praise to all my fellow Sailor Moon watchers and artists, who are master artists in their own right.
Now to the question at hand. You all know of my own unique Senshi, created from many different elements, as well as the crossovers I have done. My latest work regards my own organization of Senshi which I call "Star Warriors" or "Sailor Warriors". It could be considered a galactic organization of Senshi that are part-military force, part law enforcement, part magical, part humanitarian, and part relief organization. They provide aid to the many worlds of this galaxy, which in my storyline are populated with life that have their collective ancestry in this solar system and Earth itself. But however, I created them with the main purpose in mind that they are primarily an independent paramilitary force of peacekeepers and part-time soldiers. Therefore, these Senshi are more down-to-earth and practical than say, Sailor Moon and the other main Senshi, for example. For instance, they are willing to kill to defend others.
Also, each Senshi of my storyline is trained in combat tactics, martial arts, and military strategy along with their professional careers, since all of my Star Warriors are civilian women as well. Plus, they are not so heavily reliant on magical items and powers to do their duty; they also use conventional weapons and technology, and possess material wealth and funds to acquire the resources they need to prosecute their missions. Picture one of my Star Warrior Senshi dressed up in her fuku and wielding her Sailor Items.........along with several pieces of equipment, such as a radio headset, scanner, medical kit, varied tools, and even a personal firearm like say, a Heckler & Koch MP5 submachine gun for defense. That would be how they would operate in the galaxy, as both magical and conventional fighters of sorts. Furthermore, each Senshi is not part of any other Senshi force other than their own, and they are heavily independent as well as publicly known to regular civilians.
I have planned to make my organization of Star Warrior Senshi as diverse as possible, so I have based many of them from mythology, regional and national culture, fictional stuff, historical events, animals, plants, forces of nature, crossovers, and even ones of my own design. It's still a work in progress, as I plan to have hundreds of these drawn. It seems a crazy goal, even to me.
So the question, or questions: could my creations be considered a bit radical or new, given all the information I have just put on this journal about their style and methods? Is there anything I can do to improve them? Pros and cons? What mistakes have I made? Have I gone maybe a bit too far?
I ask myself these same questions, and I observe my results with attention, but it's also important to get the opinions of others. Which is why I ask you.
Also, my 40k watchers, you can include your opinions too. I said I was being specific as to what kind of people I wanted to answer this question, but anyone is welcome to answer. I welcome all opinions. Many thanks.
