There were three in the beginning by saniika There were three in the beginning by saniika
I saw these three girls walk down the stairs 200 times. I made this as a gift for a special person, it is impossible to put the story behind into words though, so I won't even try.
Took me some considerable time to make this - coloring took me the longest - about 2 days. But no time in the world can say Thank you enough to that person.

Please enjoy everyone as well. Maybe rewatch the first opening as well. C:

Great BG! It reminds me of the old anime. Great group shot too! I really like their expressions and this is colored so well.

Thanks, I aimed for the old anime look - it was reference to the first opening.

yeah ppl forget that the first season was just the three of them and i loved it when it was just the three of them. because each girl got he proper amount of attention back then i think. and I loved being able to watch Sarina and Rei go at it. i loved Rei

I know right? I dubbed them the Original Trio. ;p In the manga the attention was more evenly spaced out than in the anime though. ^^;

I miss Serena's Moon Tiara Action. Her first attack ever. :( Her frisbee skills were legendary, it's sad she doesn't use it anymore.

I have to admit, I do not particularly like Sailor Moon, whether it is the manga or the anime but this piece... I simply love the way you painted this.
You style is, as usual, beautiful and really "fits" to the characters. They look quite mature but kept their original spirit, and that's the most important, to me. And when it comes to the colours, they are just... wonderful. I adore the way you have painted and shaded their hair (especially Moon and Mars' one, for some reason), they are so beautiful and silky looking, the lights on it are also wonderful. I also love the way you have shaded the multiple folds of their skirts and that delicate and beautiful mix of blue and purple you used to share their white tops. Overall, the atmosphere is really nice and I like it a lot!
