No, Nadadoll

I said then, and I say now, that while there is a lower class, I am in it, and while there is a criminal element I am of it, and while there is a soul in prison, I am not free.

I must create a system or be enslaved by another mans; I will not reason and compare: my business is to create.

OKAY SO i basically understand why the Sailor Senshi are all drawn with exactly the same face and body type and outfit.  It’s animation, right?  So it’s much easier to draw a thousand times if everyone is based on the same basic paper doll.  And I guess I understand why fan artists keep it that way— it’s on-model, and it’s appealing to have synchronized bodies, pretty maids all in a row.  

I think, however, that it’s a shame to take these distinct female characters with their own lives and personalities and give them totally interchangeable character designs. It ties into making women and girls in media seem like fungible commodities, doll blanks.  

now as individual transparent gifs with a strong vertical component that you have to scroll down past, directly confronting Usagi’s crapulence, Ami’s shyness, Mako-chan’s tough femininity, Rei’s perfectionism, and Minako’s athleticism.

been working on sprite art for a fan remake of the Buffy boardgame.

This is my reading of the girls of Sailor Moon in the styles they brought from home, my lines and pixels, my styles, my fandom.  And if you steal my thunder, in the name of the Moon, I’ll punish you.
