Crystal Tokyo by Pyro911 Crystal Tokyo by Pyro911
So, finally some new work.

I`ve been working on this for 4 or 5 months. It was ... gnaaaah >.<
Unfortunately, the sources of the photographies didn`t have really good quality, so this is all I could make out of it.

About the topic:
Well, Neo Queen serenity again. I just can`t stand it when I see some beautiful photography of her >.< There are so many gorgeous cosplayer here on DA *_*
This time the cosplayer is the amazing ~Usagi-Tsukino-krv
Thank you very much for using your photo! :3

I put her in front of Crystal Tokyo, her future reigning city, the capital of the silver millenium.

EDIT, because so many asked me:
HOW THE HELL DID YOU DO THIS FTW 1111?!?!?!?!

Well, keep calm. Let me explain.
This is a Photomanipulation, or better named as a "Matte Painting/Composing" (professional name).
That means it mainly consists of MORE THAN ONE photographies, added with hand-painted details and lights.
Here, for example, the cosplayer/Serenity is a separate photography, as well as the fountain. Crystal Tokyo has been build from several different photos of crystals, diamonds and shiny stones.
The ground is a texture, combined with painted light effects.
The sky is hand-painted, the clouds are brushes.
The rest of the details (hair~) are also painted or brushes.
The dress is original, it belongs to the photo of her and is sewed by the cosplayer.
That`s it~ ^^

This note is to both :iconusagi-tsukino-krv: and :iconpyro911:

I absolutley adore this image.  It's very moving and beautiful

I'd like to ask your permission to use it as a temporary cover of a story I wrote in honor of Sailor Moon's 20th anniversary.  I am working on my own cover but it will take months if not longer to finish.  Would it be OK if I used your beautiful image in the mean time?

Thank you for your time and sorry to be a bother.

Hi, can you tell me what kind of story that is and where/ how it is published?

The story is a Sailor Moon Fanfiction about Neo-Queen Serenity in Crystal Tokyo.  There aren't any Otaku Senshi in it, but there are fan characters (non of whom are named with the exception of the villain Desperia who is briefly mentioned).

The story is written entirely by me, :iconplayfulkitty828:/Aleksandra, and based entirely on Naoko Takeuchi's Sailor Moon universe, featuring direct references to the ideas she presented in her manga, and is meant to pay tribute to her.

:iconusagi-tsukino-krv: has given me permission to use it on both my page and yours (I thought both accounts belonged to the same person), so I assumed it was ok to publish it, but  I'll take it down if you want me to.  I have linked her to it.  I have credited her for the image, but I will now add a credit to you as well (like I said, for some reason I thought you were the same person).  The story is not inspired by the image - I found the image after I got the idea for it, but I think the image reflects it perfectly.  I am working on an original cover for it, but I cannot find my rough copy for it at the moment (it was near finished but I lost it while cleaning my room).

Here is a link to it:

I can't imagine the scale of gravitational anomaly because of which Moon became so NEAR to the Earth O_o. Tsunamies caused by this should be at least 200 meters of height O_O

but this is fantasy, so it`s a kind of surreal.
and for the tsunami, Sailor Moon will be there and punish it =))

Well ....ehm ... I don`t know how to explain it xD
It`s a lot of complex work.
I looked for fitting photos, arranged colour and lightness, cutted them out and put them together in a new way. That`s it in short xD"

Maybe at the end of the year, I will do some Making ofs (videos or something) of some upcoming pictures (f.e. an Avatar/Last Airbender-Series or an Sleeping Beauty-Artwork).

I find it relatively amusing that both of these deviations were posted on the same day, with only a 2 hour difference between them by two completely different deviants, and they BOTH ended up on the first page....right beside each other.
