Sailor Mercury by riordan-j-flynn Sailor Mercury by riordan-j-flynn
Photoshop CS-5
Wacom Intuos 3
About 20 hours. 

Lots of little details, so feel free to fullview! This is my own view of the Mercury fuku, I know it's not show/manga accurate. ;) 

I'm considering selling prints of this. Would anyone be interested?

I love this! A great mix of classic, realism, modernization, and your own style. The details are what really do it, her brooch, skirt pleats, lace, and the email envelope on her screen, are my favorites. Very well done

this is really cool but WHY would anyone upload a picture for the web that weights? 3.4Mb? >.< I thought my browser broke down or something, but it astually was loading so long because I have a very slow web connection :P Anyway, I understand you want to show all the details and big resolution and all, but even Photoshop reccomends compacting stuff down for web and applying compression ^^; there's even 'save for web' button. Not just for people with slow Internet, but the ones that acces from smartphones and pay for web transfer :P noone honestly would notice the difference if you uploaded a below 1Mb  file ;p
With that said, the drawing is amazing! Congrats :)

Thanks for the compliment, sorry for the long loading time.

Such tiny details make a character even more likeable.
:nod:
To be honest,I never really cared for Mercury before late season R or S too much,as she was too perfect for me...
I prefered Mars,Jupiter and Neptune over her...with their flaws and problems...
but still,Ami was a memorable character.
A huge supporter,her water rhapsody was actually beautful and deadly,
and with her cyber glasses she looks so much cooler and all these details you gave her make her great.
An admirable job,for sure :+favlove:

Aw, thanks very much. Makoto is my favourite of the inner girls, but I really don't like drawing lightning, ha! Of the outers, I'm like all of them actually except Michiru - she seems too frosty and superior. At least Haruka has a sense of humor. >_> 

Thanks for the fav. :)

trumi Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2014
You earned it.

Still...
How could you not like Michiru ? She is a great character...romantic,nostalgic,artistic...
she cares for Haruka,but wants to see inners become stronger...

Superior ? Do you think she has a superiority complex ? 0_0
She is just calm and mysterious...but she doesn't look down on people.She may seem distant...
And she is very hot:

3.three-lights.net/gallery/hikam…

she also helped Ami become a stronger person both at heart and confidence wise...

I think we just have different preferences in our characters, which is just fine. <3 

I don't actively dislike Michiru, I just like other characters better. :) She's definitely a powerful force for good, and she's Haruka's rock. Haruka wouldn't be Haruka without her Michiru, and I think that's a good thing. :3

One or do you intend to do them all? I only purchase prints when they are a series of them all because I'm Sailor Moon art collector.
