Battle by Moonlight by Soap-Committee Battle by Moonlight by Soap-Committee
I've had this burning desire to draw something fancy for SM but already did ULTIMATE GROUP FANART not too long ago.  Rather than retreading old ground, I hereby send my love to those wonderfully whacked-out prototype designs, and to a lot of out-of-context stuff I loved from the show's first season.

(Close-ups of those newspapers where I drew over tabloids and news headlines)

Love the art style! I like the pop-art-ish feeling to this. So cute and unique.

Man, I love this. Beyond the super-fun, punchy use of the limited colour palette, which I love, and the incredibly fun and dynamic composition - it's plain awesome to see some appreciation for the concept stuff! The whole spirit of those early pictures? Nailed it!
So. Cool.

I'm sorry to reply this late - but thank you so much for your words of appreciation, here!  The concept stuff was just so wild and cool.  I love what we got but it's fun to think, "what if?"

I'm sorry to be so embarassingly late in  replying to you.  I actually do plan on making some more prints this summer, if you still have any interest I can add you to a one-time mailing list, or message you here on DA!

What program did you use to make your art in, Photoshop?

Yes...I think. It's been many months but I know the colors were 100% Photoshop, if not the lines as well.

wah love it! It's fun to revisit favorite characters with a different edge. Has a very retro fun look. I remember seeing those old concepts from the mangaka but I think you did something really dynamic with them.

(I'm sorry this is so late!)  Thank you! I can see why those prototype designs weren't practical for the comic (or for the visual message of "Hey girls, your school uniform is totally a superhero costume!"), but they were so cute and fun to draw here.

I love this so much that it is now my desktop wallpaper! It suits it wonderfully too, I hope you don't mind. It's just so inspiring.

Would you be willing to make the other sailor scouts in this fashion? It would make a killer series! Wish you had done Wicked Lady, too! :)

Anyhow, I love it. I love it, I love it.

xoxo

Hi there, sorry this reply is so late!  I'm so glad you've liked it enough to honor it as your wallpaper, I absolutely don't mind.  

As to the other scouts (assuming you mean the Outers) - giving them this kind of look would be more original and ambitious than what I did here (which was essentially yanking Takeuchi's prototype designs), but you're right, it could be really fun.  It'll probably be a while but I'll be thinking on it! :D

Haha, not at all!  I've been floundering about which online storefront to go with (storenvy? etsy?) and the best way to ship such big prints (cardboard tubes? boxes?).  I'm hoping to set up something in September now that Otakuthon's done, and will definitely update here when that goes down.  \o/ Holler if there's anything you'd like to see available!

The Paranoia Agent/Sailor Moon crossover is the one I have my eye on. 

Would selling right here through dA work? They handle the actual printing/shipping and pay you a percentage, right? Or is the percentage too small to not make it worth it? 

Also, in my experience, cardboard tubes are wonderful for mailing prints. Some people prefer the flat boxes, but I frame every print I buy, so being rolled is a non-issue to me.  (Yours got framed yesterday! It lives by my computer now.)

I'm so sorry, I fell off DA for the last month due to a heavy workload, you deserved a much more prompt reply!

For a SM/Paranoia Agent print: I just checked and found that its file is only about 7 inches tall (the original linework comes from my sketchpad).  As DA doesn't allow fanart prints, and as I would feel bad charging for such a small thing (and because I also really appreciate your stopping by and supporting the Otakuthon table!), would you like the original file to print as you please?

This is perfect. The prototype fuku are a bit of a doozy color-wise, but I've always loved how unique they were. Besides, I really like the... glamourized detective show vibe (it's hard to describe) I get from it. It's very similar to the feel I get from the first artbook and the anime depiction of Sailor V. Maybe it's just a really joyful '90s vibe, which is fantastic. All in all, it's so cool I can't even deal with it, and I love all the little details. Thanks for this art!

This is a really awesome and unique piece of fan art! I love all the different kinds of design elements that you've added to the background like the news headlines, TV monitors, and the city skyline. Actually, it almost reminds me of Persona 4 sort of what with the different kinds of eye wear and the TV screens. It's so cool! :happybounce:
