I’ve mentioned before I typically prefer to use both Ryūko and Satsuki for yuri content, but everyone in the studio is pansexual so it’s okay to veer off the established path a bit. I thought Yusuke would make for a good straight partner for her, since both of them are based off of retro Japanese delinquent archetypes. I don’t have much more to say about this one, I guess, but I hope y’all like it.
I ended up with one extra commission for August than I’d originally expected, due to the move to SubscribeStar (several of my Master Tier people paid twice as a result, and I decided to bump those people all ahead one month for their annual rewards). It’s always been pretty common to pair Sailor Moon (and the other Sailor Scouts, too) with characters from contemporary boys’ anime. I think I’ve seen it most commonly done with DBZ, but they’re far from the only crossover I’ve seen for those gals. The commission here is all about pairing Serena/Usagi with Yusuke Urameshi of Yu Yu Hakusho, with both characters being popular protagonists from shows I watched when I was younger but haven’t drawn much of. This is the first time I’ve drawn either character, as it happens, which now opens them up for possible Character Asks down the line. The client wanted a softer, more romantic feel and I think that comes across here.
Also, here’s the Q&A video I did for my supporters last month:
