The Shobijin by cwpetesch The Shobijin by cwpetesch
My take on the Fairy Priestess Twins who serve and speak for Mothra from the Godzilla Franchise.
I also added the symbol for Mothra on their thighs in the style of a tribal tattoo.

Very pretty and anime-styled, I love these two and they're not completed without Mothra.

Nicelysketched & wonderfully colored.

Very interesting. Nice touch with the symbol of Mothra being on their thighs, not going to lie. :)

My designs for them are based on Rebirth of Mothra & Tokyo SOS.  Moll has a red one of those outfits, and Lora has a blue version.  I also added Belvera, gave her a purple version with a cape, and made her a priestess for Battra.

My version of the Shobijin are called the Aerinas which is what they were called in the original book that inspired Mothra. Lora is still Lora and a priestess of Mothra while Moll is a mixture of Moll and Belvera and Battra's priestess. They're also human-sized.

Aerinas?  I've heard of the book but never their depiction.

Well, the Aerinas were basically the Shobijin/Cosmos/Elias we all know and love (or love to hate depending on your tastes) except there were more than just two.
