The latest Hatsune Miku drawing trend on Twitter rides on the heels of the recent #sailormoonredraw trend. After watching artists redraw Usagi from Sailor Moon, a popular Hatsune Miku illustrator named MayoRiyo decided “I want to see this with Miku, too!”.

And thus, the #HatsuneMikuDraw trend began! At first, some artists tried redrawing the pose from original Hatsune Miku VOCALOID2 boxart illustration by KEI.


Then some artists got the idea to mix #HatsuneMikuDraw and #SailorMoonRedraw trends together:


MayoRiyo even contributed their own art to the mix!

And for some fun, here’s a few more! But be sure to check the rest out yourself, or contribute your own on Twitter via the #HatsuneMikuDraw tag.
