Royal Family Project Picture

okay, so this took an IMPOSSIBLY long time to do! i actually started this waaay back in september, and explanations are due! this piece was begot through the idea of doing random mythology research. i came across the legend of Selene and Endymion in greek mythology,which inspired Naoko Takeuchi to create Sailor Moon. i read the part about how in the myth, they had 50 daughters and chuckled at the idea of 50 chibiusa's running around Crystal Palace. and my muse latched onto that idea and threatened me with dark things until i agreed to do it! so, here are the 50 daughters of Neo Queen Serenity and King Endymion. and please, don't ask me how some of them do their hair. let's just say it's magic and a LOT of hair gel, okies?
