This is Momoko Hanasaki, the main character of the anime Wedding Peach. If you've never heard of Wedding Peach, it's understandable. Wedding Peach never got any attention here in the USA. Wedding Peach was a magic girl anime that was actually made by the same artists that worked on Sailor Moon. Unfortunately, Wedding Peach got snubbed by Sailor Moon's popularity, so I wonder if the series got the attention it deserved. It's not bad and neither is it very awesome either, but that's my opinion on just about magic girl animes. However, Wedding Peach is cute and chaming and I like the character designs a lot. If you're into magic girl animes, give it a shot.
ANYWAY.........I'm sure that some of you are wondering what the hell is going on here. Well in a nutshell, it seems that Momoko, even with her magic girl powers couldn't ward off a stone petrification spell. Unless one of her friends can find a dispel scroll to release her, well, you get the idea.
The drawing itself actually came out of a request that my friend,
, made from me. This drawing of Momoko was part of that, but in the final stages of the request a lot of drawings ended up not getting used. The last thing that I wanted to do was put this one to waste though. This drawing was also inspired by a particular japanese artist's style. He's into the whole petrification thing. I would give proper credit where credit is due of course, but unfortunately he doesn't have a site that I know of.
