Commission - Sailorstars Chars by ArtistMeli Commission - Sailorstars Chars by ArtistMeli
Commission for the fan-game "Sailor Moon: The Last Chapter" (more info here: [link] )

Portrait art of some of the manga-only characters of Sailorstars: :bulletwhite: Guardian Cosmos, :bulletpurple: Sailor Heavy Metal Papillon, :bulletred: Sailor Kakyuu, and :bulletwhite: Sailor Cosmos.

The game author wanted a very cohesive anime look to all the game portraits, so I referenced both official Sailor Moon art (for Sailors Kakyuu and Cosmos), and characters from Mahou Tsukaitai (for Guardian Cosmos and Sailor Heavy Metal Papillon), which is by the same director and character designer.

These portraits are for the express use of "Sailor Moon: The Last Chapter" only, please do not take or use them without the game author's permission.

Did you trace them from Sailor Neptune, Sailor Uranus, Sailor Pluto, and Super Sailor Moon? The poses are similar. Even if so, the picture is very nice!

Thank you! :D As explained in the description of the image, Guardian Cosmos and Heavy Metal Papillon were referenced from a different anime by the same director, Mahou Tsukaitai. Kakyuu was referenced from a screenshot, and Cosmos was indeed referenced from Super Sailor Moon. There wasn't any tracing involved, but I did spend a *lot* of time trying to get them to look as much like the references as I could.

It's too bad you weren't commissioned to do the Starllights portraits...

Because these are awfully nice! :heart:

Thanks. :D I actually did do a set of them in upgraded versions of their fukus, but the commissioner wanted me to trace specific portraits of them and just edit the fuku, and I don't uploaded traced stuff to DA based on how much I've seen other people get harassed about it.

Crazy Albino Rainbow Girl! SO CUTE!
H.M. PAPILLON!! So Pretty! *dies*
Kakyuu... Meh. (Amazing portrait, I'm just not into her outfit)
COSMOS! *vomits from excitement*

ArtistMeli Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
lol, the rainbow girl is Guardian Cosmos. She's only ever been in the manga, so she has no official color scheme, but I remember seeing a fanart of her with rainbow pearls, and the idea stuck with me. ^_^

I feel the same about Kakyuu. She's an interesting character, but I'm not too big on the poofy pants under the transparent flower petal skirt. :P

Glad you like them. ^_^

I feel like such a bad fan!
I didn't even know that Kakyuu could transform into a senshi outfit!
Only found that out after researching Guardian Cosmos.
After finding the only, like 2, manga images of G.C. EVER; I can officially say that I'm MORE impressed with your art! :XD:

Beautiful work ^^ These characters deserved for more attention :nod:
Even if Kakyuu appeared in the anime, she was never shown in her Sailor form which is a big pitty ;P
I love this so much! And I love your Cosmos' version :heart:

Thanks so much. :D Even though Stars is still my favorite season of the anime, I always wished it had stuck closer to the manga. I love giving those missing characters some attention. ^_^

I think it was because manga was running the same time as anime was ending so maybe this is the cause of inconsistencies? Nevertheless, both versions are awesome. Though manga characters that are missing were also fantastic ^^
Thanks you bring them here in such a great anime style :heart:

Ah, that makes sense. I'm glad it turned out as well as it did, then! Sometimes it can be a real disaster when an anime gets ahead of the manga... the TV run of Hellsing is a great example of that. :P
