This came Third Place in the Japanese Embassy's Manga Jiman 2010 contest!

My first completely digital comic! ^_^ Drawn on SAI and with text added on PHotoshop. THis was fun to do and I hope to do more like this in the future.

As the requirements of the contest was to draw a 6-8 page manga, (which could be a whole story or merely a section) I just drew the first 8 pages of the story though I will finish this later.

The idea of To Sail a Moon was originally inspired from the advert and Sailor Moon to create a Sailor Moon fanart. However I liked the idea so much, I decided to create characters around it.

Artwork here was inspired by *pyromaniac and `Endling

Woohoo I'm glad you liked this! It was very crowded in the hall when they were declaring the winners, and my heart was pounding so so hard after they revealed fifth place. When I didn't get fourth place, my brain was exploding cos it suddenly hit me what was gonna happen XDDDD I love my digital camera :3
