More work from my Anime Nostalgia Series, this time illustrating Michiru Kaioh, also known as Sailor Neptune from the popular and classical series Sailor Moon by Naoko Takeuchi.

Michiru was always my very favorite character in the series, and if I could be entirely honest, she is probably my character female character in the anime universe. Her grace and charm, her strong yet giving character, her skills with instruments and her blind love for Haruka, attract me to an insane level to her. I also identify myself with her on some levels, and those who know both myself and the character might understand slightly why. Sadly, I do not also posses her patience. u.u'

The colours here are amongst my favorites as well. Turqoise, being my favorite colour, accompanied by lovely shades of baby blue and navy.

I would also like to dedicate this picture to one of my followers who has been watching my work, commenting and supporting me in my rough times from day one. Big hugs, roses and thank you to ~Niko2x4

To Niko: "I know she's not Mars or Jupiter, but since you luv her too, I thought, why not!" xD

Let me know what you think. :rose::love::heart:

Very awesome!! Yeah I went and played it on repeat for a while earlier today. 
There are some cool life performances of violinists performing that piece on youtube. 
Those are always fun to watch.
