Sky Senshi - Minako by RainyMeadows
Sky Senshi - Minako

I’d like to think she actually somehow stole that whip from Mr Moss.

You know how I said all of these outfits were influenced by something the character wore? I think Minako’s is the most obvious one: as far as I can see, it’s not much more than a colour-alteration of her Sailor V uniform, just with leggings instead of a bow on the front and more boot-lie shoes (sorry, but trendy heels don’t really fly in Atmos, unless your name is Ravess).

She has her hair loose because in this ‘verse she would act as the carrier pilot. When in combat she would put her hair up in a bun similar to Rei’s. The bow she has is orange because I did have it red originally, but without any red in the rest of her outfit it didn’t really seem to fit.

I think this is my favourite of all the designs. Mina is a total babe.

Sky Senshi - Makoto

Funny how these franchises are completely different and made on opposite sides of the world around 15 years apart and yet both have the tallest members of their team being really strong and associated with the colour green. Strange how the world works, isn’t it?

I wasn’t entirely sure what I could do with Makoto’s outfit. I’d already had Usagi’s based on her Senshi uniform, Ami’s is inspired by her school uniform and Rei’s got her shrine maiden kit, but I can’t think of any distinctive Makoto outfits except her school and Senshi uniforms. So instead I worked around her signature colour and incorporated her rose motif.

And I also gave her Yang Xiao Long style gauntlets for her to kick some ass with. If she can’t use her lightning or petals, she seems like the type who would happily use her fists if it came to it.

Sky Senshi - Rei by RainyMeadows
Sky Senshi - Rei

What I’m trying to do with each character here is incorporate elements of one of their other outfits into the squadron design. With Rei, I tried to make it reminiscent of both her shrine maiden clothes and her senshi uniform. Not too sure I succeeded but hey, I tried. I’m lucky that Storm Hawks already uses relatively simple colour schemes.

She’d most likely have Firebolt crystals on her arrows, because they’re a twofer: red and fire in the same shot!

Her hair is restrained for the same reason as Usagi: it would look epic and majestic in flight, but lord knows what would happen if it got caught in a mechanism.

Sky Senshi - Ami

And now the ever-adorable Ami.

I can totally see her as a crystal mage. She’s already pretty similar to Piper in some respects, like her intelligence and friendly demeanor, but I’m betting she wouldn’t be anywhere near as skilled with crystals. I like to think she mainly specialises in ice and water, because that’s relating to her powers as Sailor Mercury.

I’m trying to make sure they all have different eye shapes, because otherwise they’d just like kinda odd.

Sky Senshi - Usagi

Figured this would be a fitting intro for my art blog (rainymeadowsartyfarts.tumblr.com) since it’s my first time using a new technique in terms of shading. The reason her hair is tied up like that is because while it would look awesome, I doubt Usagi would want her long, trailing golden locks to catch in a mechanism (same reason I’m betting everybody else in Storm Hawks has hair that’s either short or spiked up).

So yeah. Sailor Moon as a Sky Knight. Now to do the rest of the group.

Yeah, I wrote a Storm Hawks/Fullmetal Alchemist crossover fanfiction and I'm very, very proud of it. I'm planning to add more and possibly turn it into a series because I can't believe how well it turned out and I've had some very nice feedback.

It can be found here and on my Tumblr blog (my URL is my deviantART username).

If you can find the time, please have a read and let me know what you think!

It's called Gravity. There will be a midquel called Grounded which explores what happens in Atmos between Wayward Son and Gravity.
