Toei & Naoko apparently outsource those editors enforcing "strict quality control" in Bangladesh, too. Otherwise they would notice that their freelance artist just copy-pasted the same head over several images. P-:

Actually, when you put then side by side and compare them, you can see how impressive the strict quality control really is. These are clearly two distinct images, and yet they did an AMAZING job making it look the same. As one should with a licensed property.
I've rotated the head to match the angle a little better, which you can see here.

Image

And, to highlight just some of the differences:

Image

1. The odango are different sizes
2. The shading (and location of the lines) on the odango is completely different.
3. Her eyeshadow is different.
4. The shading for where her hair parts in the middle is different.
5. The way her hair is broken up on the left and right is different.
6. The light "highlights" in her eyes is different (in the left picture, right eye, she has two marks and only one in the right picture)
7. Her mouth is formed differently.
8. Her nose is more rounded in the left picture.

Among others!

Okay, I see what you are talking about, those subtle details are indeed different. But they still use the same outlines (not only for those two images, but for others posted in previous page). Whether those were traced, or their freelance artist can draw a bunch of images from a scratch with the same outlines, the final result still gives an impression of recycling the same pic and looks cheap. I don't think this qualifies as a strict quality control, but that's just my opinion.

I just saved all these. I love that the 90's style is still being used even with Crystal out. Funny but unrelated, if you google image search for 'Usagi' you get a ton of 90's art. Some Crystal, but most of it is 90's.. last time I checked at least.

I actually like the outfits with the bows I think they are quite cute. Especially Usagi's outfit.

My favorite outfit of the pictures is Usagi's space dress.

Those checker-like patterns also make them look AKB48-esque. lol

Wow, this artwork is gorgeous!

It reminds me of Naoko's style as well. I wish the 90's anime had looked this elegant.


Me too, SILVER. I feel that the 90's anime's character designs lack any sort of elegance the manga art had.

Very beautiful artworks..
Makes me wish that the remaining Crystal seasons will be animated in such a style. I mean, I the Crystal S3 style is cool, but I absolutely love the 90s art style (most of all the style of Ikuko Ito) out of all Sailor Moon depictions, so seeing it come back would be great.

But are you talking about the 1997 style or the 1992 style?

Bought the new 1,000 piece puzzle and thought I should share a snap of it.
Sorry I tried to get a better quality pic of it but this was the best I could get in the dark

Is it just me, or does Chibi Moon look too short and Saturn too tall in that picture?

It's too bad that such a group photo of all of those guys as they are right there (Inners in their Super forms, Outers in their normal forms, normal form Saturn also present, and all three cats present) could have never been taken within any of the events of the 90's anime.

That's why that pic is there to compensate for that. lol

The only thing I'd change is the solid white mouth interiors in those second and third pics. I don't like it when people don't fill in the proper mouth interior colors like that, as the white makes it look like the mouths contain a single giant-sized tooth that takes up the whole mouth.

I like the classic artstyle, and the Inners in particular look sweet, but Michiru looks like her neck is broken. :eek:
