SMPP Luna and Artemis by BradenLock SMPP Luna and Artemis by BradenLock
Oh Gods, I know I was supposed to have this in ages ago, but I've been super busy with school, and Dog Sees God, and I now have exams coming up. I finally found a spare twenty minutes to post this, so here it is!

Entry number eight in my "Sailor Moon Poster Project!"

When looking at Sailor Moon in contention for a Hollywood film franchise, I realized that the series lacks a concrete genre. True it has potential to be action, superhero, sci-fi, fantasy and romance films, but, it occurred to me that the series follows thr formula of a horror movie perfectly. Five unsuspecting girls, thrust into a situation they don't understand, where they are hunted by monsters.

Keeping that concept as a jumping off point, I included as much black as possible in each poster, as well as using the modern city sklyline motif as often as I could.

It was a very easy decision to portray Luna and Artemis as real cats, as opposed to the plush toys in PGSM, which never made sense to me. The concept of the poster is totally unique compared to the others, which I like, but that said, I wish I had stuck with some variation of uniformity. Ah well. The nature of the colored markings on their faces are open to interperatation, but Luna's was meant to resemble femenine make-up, while Artemis's drew from male facial hair.

Their tagline is "the MENTORS", because that's what they are, and I couldn't really think of anything else for them.

Please, Favorite, leave comments, and check out my other posters :)

Sailor Moon is owned by Naoko Takeuchi and Toei Animation. I do not profit from this. Please support the series.

Hi there, I tried writing you a comment but I guess it didn't go through. I'm not sure if you know about this or approved of it but there's a jacket being sold from a Chinese website with your picture on it. I first saw it at a blog ([link]) where somebody found it. The seller is "Umeyon" and the shirt is here: [link] .:(

I don't know if you're aware but some chinese company has made a jacket with your art on it. The seller i think is umeyon at the bottom.

I saw this link first on someone's blog [link] and then saw the sellers site [link] :(

It wasn't planned but I'd love to include her in a companion piece! I so enjoyed doing Luna and Artemis, simply because my cat was such a brat when I was sketching. I really had a blast with this one.

I've already seen your other SM fanarts but I'm just commenting this one:
VERY COOL! These would probably be great comic book covers if SM came from the USA or something.
The SM characters look pretty cool this way :)

Awe, thanks! I've considered doing prints, but I'm not familiar with the print making/selling process, and I'm still only sixteen, so I don't have serious time to manage it. I'm glad there's interest though!

Also, I love your icon! Minako was always my favorite :)
