Sailor Moon redesigned - PSSS contest entry Picture

Here is my entry for the second round of theNekk‘s PSSSS contest (the link to the journal : thenekk.deviantart.com/journal… ).

Each of them represents a different realm and is connected to different moon phases, also carries different weapon. So Selene represents the heavenly element, is connected to full moon and carries a torch (is often portrayed in an oxen cart, but I decided not to draw it), Artemis represents the earthly element, is connected to waxing moon and carries a bow and Hekate represents the underworld element, is connected to new moon and carries a trumpet. I decided to include this triple split into my character. When designing her outfit I also used description of the three goddesses – the ideal of veil, sandals or horns (skipped the oxen though).
