a more sinister portrayal of Kaguya Hime from The Bamboo Cutter's Tale

Kaguya Hime

Sketch which I’m going to be turning into collage/decoupage on a wood panel for an upcoming show on Mythmaking! Kaguya Hime is a celestial princess who was a refugee from the moon in the early Japanese narrative, “The Bamboo Cutter’s Tale.”

I realize Sailor Moon and other more light-hearted stories have their genesis in this legend, but I tried to make my Moon Princess more sinister and enigmatic!

    1. Indeed. Red/yellow/green does seem to be a popular combination the world over, from traditional kimono colors, to rasta culture, to stop lights! I guess people just like it.
