Neo Admiral Tsukino

This month's Sailor Moon Character Challenge inspired me to take on a redesign of the iconic star of the series. I imagined her as a much older commander with a stocky build like Captain Avatar from Starblazers.
The style choices borrow from an Iczer 1 character album I bought back in the late 80s. It was filled with beautifully reproduced stills from the film and had vibrant colors, crisp cel shading and that characteristically rough animation line.


Final Design
I decided later in the process to try a quick prop and vehicle treatment in the same style. In hindsight, everything could be pushed a lot more but I think the basic idea comes across in the final design.
