Fukano Moon by meteor-echo Fukano Moon by meteor-echo
So, back in the summer of ‘14 I saw a peculiar post making rounds on Tumblr. Apparently, back before Bandai started working on the fifth Sailor Moon season, the R and S main character designer, Youichi Fukano, drew an additional design for Sailor Moon. Sadly, it wasn’t accepted, but a couple photos of the actual art designs remained and got circulated around. They can be seen here.

The design looked absolutely lovely, so I drew a fanart of it, which took me about half a year to finish due to a sad mixture of art block/depression/dealing with crappy life circumstances. However, in December I tried to start drawing more actively (thus a new blog!) and, finally, this fanart got finished. Enjoy!

Haha, yeah, saw it. I drew this sketch before Fukano published the full design, and had to pretty much design the lower half of her outfit by myself.

Admittedly, I like my own version better, because Sailor Moon just doesn't look good without her boots. I like the skirt, but the shoes he gave her are.... meh.

Oh man, now I'm wondering what Chibi Moons and the rest of the scouts designs would have looked like.
This is indeed a really pretty design, totally would have perfered it to the eternal version too.

I designed her skirt and boots; apparently, the finished design had her wear high heels similar to Venus's. But yeah, I wish there were more similar designs by this dude. They'd look amazing.

I sure as heck does. I haven't been able to squeeze any new art for almost a year, and now I'm drawing a whole damn lot. It's amazing.

Thank you! I wish this design was in the series instead of the one they used for the fifth season.

LOVE the background! The fuku design is very cool too. I love her boots :)

Also, I'm hoping you're feeling better. 2014 was a rough year for many.

I designed her fuku from waist down :) Apparently, Fukano completed the design recently, but I like my version much better for some reason (perhaps because he drew her wearing pumps).

And thank you. 2014 was shiiiiit.
