SOOOO I heard about fellow Dragonball fans’ reactions to the
now-infamous “episode 5” of Dragonball Super. It reminded me of what
happened with the randomly screwed up faces in the Sailor Moon Crystal
reboot series @_@
Inconsistent animation quality is pretty
commonplace with a long-running series, so I think the characters should
make the best of it!
My first time participating in the Character Design Challenge! I’m sad I didn’t know about the mermaid challenge until it was too late, but it’s okay, I love Sailor Moon!
Princess Serenity and Luna always reminded me of the Chinese Moon Fairy, Chang E, so I kept that in mind as I designed. I tried to evoke her iconic hair style, but also inspired by more traditional Chinese hairstyles. Not too hard at all! I also put the planetary symbols of her main five sailor scouts on the “brocade” since I wanted to tie their relationship in somehow!
- Haruka, Michiru, Hotaru and Setsuna Pokemon Trainer Cards
Can you tell that I’m excited for Pokemon Sun and Moon??!! Here is the complete set of Outers!
- Haruka is finally done! Her base is Alexa from X/Y. She has a mostly flying team, with a sword to reflect her weapon ;) I gave her sandslash because it reminds me of her World Shaking attack! Look at that eyebrow, she so snarky. -
Michiru is my fave, so I worked pretty hard on her :3 Her base is
Serena from X/Y and she has a team of mostly water pokemon. Her last
name means “Sea King” in japanese, so ofcourse I needed to give her
Seaking and Kingdra ;) She also gets her strange aquatic-looking psychic
type to reflect her awesome psychic powers! -
stinking cute Hotaru is! The base for her is Roxanne from Omega Ruby and
Alpha Sapphire. I also took the hat idea from the X/Y Honeymooners. Her
team is mostly psychic, with the destruction pokemon Absol and the
firefly Illumise (firefly is the meaning of ‘hotaru’ in japanese). - Next is Setsuna, I used Professor Junpier from Black and White as the
base for her since Setsuna is a scientist often in her lab coat! Her
team is mostly ghost, and some dark. I wish there was a ghost eevolution
for her! Naturally she also had to get the key pokemon, and the
loneliness pokemon as well!
I decided to be nostalgic and watch old debut snsd performances ( back when Jessica and Taeyeon had like majority of lines and when they harmonized together) anyways when they twirl during Into The New World, the skirts remind me of the Season 1 and 2 Crystal Skirts LOL.
LMAO looks like I’m not the only one who is bothered by the ugly Sailor Moon Crystal skirts
They look weird and the way they’re animated is weird as well, also they look like ruffles chips.
Sailor Venus’ skirt or chips you decide.
Again, I prefer the classic anime more pleated and neat skirts.
In terms of potato quality
Also throwback to when SNSD invented 2x faster dances except it was the actual choreography and they slew everyone’s life with Sailor Moon-like skirts..
Clearer designs of the characters from KiraKira Pretty Cure A La Mode!
The designs remind me of Pri♡Para. The pink one looks like Laala, the yellow looks like Mikan, the purple looks like Sophie and the red looks like Hibiki. As I am a big fan of the show right now, this isn’t a bad thing!
Also, the mascot looks a lot like Cinnamoroll!
Cure Ace and Cure Felice remind me of Sailor Saturn, because of how young and playful they are in civilian form, but how serious and powerful they become in magical girl form. What a personality change!
