Double Mercury by skimlines Double Mercury by skimlines
It is Mercury, and Dark Mercury from the live action...

This idea got a lot more complicated than it was originally thought up of.. I was thinking something much more monotone, and much more simple.. The idea I had must be beyond me right now.

Oh yeah, I heard there might be another live action (that will feature a totally new crew and will probably feature a totally unrelated story). I got through the existing live action purely by relying 100% on fandom, because it wasn't something I would typically watch (weekday morning kids show? lol no way it would have to be sailor moon or something.) but I still ended up liking it a great deal.
Once you get past the embarrassingly cheesy graphics and Luna being a toy/kid, it is all right.

Time Lapse Animation, on youtube!: [link] or www.youtube.com/watch?v=zxuMzGPDTOQ

My first try at the same subject in 2005: [link]
.. omg I just realized the live action is at least 6 years old.

OK OK I have stopped editing this drawing. The other versions will be in the scraps, including a wallpaper version: [link]

Touched up AGAIN for otakon.
I think I like mercury's body being bright afterall. While darkury is all subdued and eerie glowing.

I totally missed the double reference the first time, but was drawn to the largely monochrome composition. LOVE it.

Ok, I have seen a lot of Sailor Moon pictures in my time-- a LOT. And this... is easily one of the best I have ever seen. If I could put this in a fan art hall of fame, I really really would. It's so simple yet so great

ah ok. The cast list sounded more like a wishlist too, what with some of the actors being from AKB48 and all.

Yeah I don't know that much about idols but people have told me they are from rival studios. I doubt they'd follow PGSM with some star studded event like that.

....Wait what? PGSM didn't completely follow the storyline as it was -_- (well..from all I know, I never did read the manga or all of it, just bits and pieces).

I mean, don't get me wrong..yeah, after getting past the cheesyness (screw kid Luna -_-) I REALLY loved it but...

Making another one? Perhaps if they included the outter scouts? I dunno.....I really liked the cast of the first one.

The live action was a little different.. like a super condensed first season, and much more gaudy what with the likes like Princess Sailor Moon. I guess they had to make it more tacky/gaudy since their target audience was like 6 years old.
