My @gemanimate shot step by step (sorry for the late upload). As I already said, this was such an important shot inside the episode and I wanted to make it the more gayer fascinating I could. Of course I took inspiration from magical girls’ trasformations (first of all Sailor Moon/Uranus ones). But since I had only two seconds I couldn’t do all the swissshhh and bliiinnks and poses of those iconic moments).
@art-of-swords is such a great blog! It’s where I looked for the concepts of Pearl’s swords. I chose these two as inspiration (sorry, I don’t have the direct link anymore D: probably they were uploaded on that blog during January/February).
