May the God-Emperor forgive me for this blasphemous display, and may my fellow 40k viewers not declare me a heretic
Anyhoo, thought I'd try mixing two canon characters from two different genres. As usual, Sailor Moon is here in her Super Sailor form, looking a little beat-up but still strong. Behind her is a seven/eight-foot tall superhuman giant: Garviel Loken, captain of the Tenth Company of the Luna Wolves Legion from the 40k universe.
A little intro is in order, for those who don't know what 40k is. Warhammer 40k is a tabletop game and universe in where humanity is now a vast galactic empire (the Imperium of Man) and is ignorant, highly religious, xenophobic, and constantly at war with numerous alien species. Loken here is one of hundreds of thousands of superhuman warriors called Adeptus Astartes
, or Space Marines. Super-strong, immortal, seven to eight feet tall, and highly intelligent.
Back to the drawing, the basis here was symbolism and similarity with icons. Both characters share the same symbol, the crescent moon.
Sailor Moon's main symbol is the crescent moon itself, while Loken's Legion symbol is a grey circle with a black wolf's head imposed over a white crescent moon. Here are the different yet similar symbols

I also wanted to try and mix a little symbolism on both characters. Sailor Moon displays four Imperial symbols: the Luna Wolves badge [link]
, the Eye of Horus (from 40k), [link]
seen on her chest, the Eye of Terra, a red eye with black slit, seen beneath her chest bow and left arm, and the Imperial Aquila on her waist[link]
. Loken displays a few of Sailor Moon's icons as honour badges.
So, that's it. An attempt at mixing two different styles, and at trying to make the Space Marine look life-size (most of us probably would only reach up to his waistline).
