1990s Style Nozomi Tojo Art Commission by Otacat

It's no secret that I love Nozomi Tojo from Love Live!. She's my favorite girl, and means a great deal to me.

I've also worked with the retro anime artist Otacat before. She did my portrait here on the site (as well as one for my wife), and I've always loved her work.

One day, I decided to commission her with a challenge: create a 1990s-style take on Nozomi. The result is amazing!

We talked and planned the general look, and wound up going with a lavender take on a dress originally worn by Sailor Neptune, Michiru Kaiou, back in the '90s version of Sailor Moon. I think the vibe is just perfect; she captured Nozomi's style and expertly reimagined it through a 1990s lens. I'm so happy with the result!

Please, if you're looking for an anime commission, go give Otacat a shot!
