I spent most of the day using shift+click to get the straight lines in Photoshop, It was well.. a pain! But I do it for you guys. Since most people are having a lot of trouble with getting a crystal tokyo/palace of their own (when I was doing a quick search and saw people had issues with this.), I decided to do an outline, and supply the three basic colors used in most of the Sailormoon paintings of the background. I would have colored it, however, I have no idea which direction the lights should be for whomever wants to use this, so I left it as a line and three blotches. Have fun coloring it! I'm doing a gold version for myself. (For my fan fiction).

Tips: Use Layer Mask like there is no tomorrow... It will help to color your version much more efficently. (also shift+click is useful)

This was a tracing of the palace about 3 times the size from the anime Sailormoon R book. I know Crystal Tokyo is a pain, but I took out most of the work for you.

If there is enough demand, I'll post a version with the base layer colored... and upload it as a PSD.

Rules:
1. Link back (preferably to this particular deviation).
2. Give me credit.
3. Don't redistribute.
4. If you want to use it, you don't have to ask permission.
5. If you do use it and want to tell me about it, then give me a direct link to your work please. That's right DIRECT. I can get to your main page easily when you post (clickie on your name), but not your deviation.

Up next, I want to do a tracing of the unknown Serenity Palace.

PLEASE click to see the bigger version. The big version is pretty.. O.o;;

Any plans for the same for the Moon Castle, too?

Moon castle is more difficult and varies a lot more by version.

This sounds like a request and I don't do those.

Not a request, just a question; have you ever thought about it?  Which adaptation do you favour?

Click the smaller picture into the bigger picture. Right-click (PC)/control-click (mac) on the picture. Go to save picture as. save the image on your desktop. Done. You will get the larger image.

It's a PNG, so it has transparency--take advantage of this.
