Why this piece is awesome: The artist wanted to draw Ami in some nice casual wear, to make up for all the terrible outfits she ends up in during the '90s anime. And succeeds! The outfit looks so cozy (and she looks so cute in it). I want one.

Why this piece is awesome: Beautiful steampunk uniform designs with a wealth of perfect little touches. Mercury with her multi-lens eyepiece, Venus with her steel chain, Jupiter with her jewel-toned bustier...the individual personalities all shine through.

Why this piece is awesome: Starting off my Sailor Moon recs with a bang! I love "bad girl/girl gang" takes on the Sailor Senshi, because it celebrates in a different way something that I think is very important to the show's legacy ... that whole sense of empowerment and inspiration that a generation of girls and women (among others) got from such teen-girl-centric power fantasies. Part of what's important in the manga/anime/etc is the fact that in many ways the Senshi are deeply, unabashedly "girly" ... but that makes more blatant homages all the more enjoyable for me. Anyway, I'm rambling, but ... it's so in-your-face and FUN. :) The messy cartoony style and bold colors suit it nicely, and I love their faces.

Content Notes/Warnings: None
Medium: Digital art
Artist Website/Gallery: [deviantart.com profile] Ruriko-sama

Why this piece is awesome: I always love Madoka/other-magical-girl crossovers, and this piece is suitably epic for the two characters involved. Beautiful, subtle rainbow of a color scheme, with Serenity's dress dissolving into light and Madoka's into stars.

Theme: Humor
Medium: Digital art

Why this piece is awesome: It has a serious, detailed drawing of a Judoon in a sailor fuku. Plus a couple of other doodles that play on these particular aliens' distinctive way of speaking.

Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Sailor Team + Asteroid Senshi
Theme: Humor
Medium: Traditional art (colored pencil?)
Artist Website/Gallery: UndeadPrincess @ dA

Why this piece is awesome: The downgrade of Pluto by the IAC triggered a tidal wave of jokes about poor Sailor Pluto's fate. This one gets bonus points for incorporating the corresponding shakeup in the Asteroid Senshi, with nice clean linework and some adorably expressive poses for the characters.

Why this piece is awesome: It's a great imitation of the style of the series, presenting the "set" from episodes 110-111 (in which the Talismans are revealed) if the characters were actors putting it together in a studio.

Why this piece is awesome: Amazing seascape and cliffside, an illustration like an old-fashioned woodcut. Plus our heroine, rendered to fit in. One of the most honestly unique styles I've ever seen a piece of fanart take on.

Why this piece is awesome: This is one of those pencil sketches you would be afraid to ink, lest you ruin the magic and spontaneity. Beautiful flowing folds of fabric, precious tiny details (the jewelry! the nails!), touchable three-dimensionality on the characters' forms.
