I really like how the style looks closer to the 90's anime and how her smile is a little smaller. :mrgreen:

Great comparison!!! Thanks for sharing.
To me, it's fine if the art is going into the direction of the manga (the eyes and the smaller mouth are a clear sign of this direction). I think the new eyes are the best ones.
I still prefer Naoko Takeuchi's more mature style (like the latest drawing published) but it's fine if they follow her early 2000's style. Yhe main point, to me, is "please follow the manga's art as much as possible and stop follow PreCure".
I think the new merch is more manga-like than PreCure-like, which is a good thing.

I don't think the new style is so 90s anime-like, though (and I don't want it to be)

Give me back the past pigtails and the lipstick and I'll be satisfied.

Here's a comparison of all of the recent artwork in the "new style."

There's a surprising amount of differences with each image. Not sure if it's because they're testing new things out or if a different artist drew each image.

Everything is good, except the pigtails. I prefer Sakou's version.

... or he or she couldn't draw the same face for all pictures. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

I have a weird idea of mine. :smug:
Starting from this:

It was one of the latest commercial in season 1-2's style, BUT there was already a slight change in it. Look at Usagi's smile.

I tried this experiment:

Attachment:
takahashi's mouth.png
takahashi's mouth.png [ 241.68 KiB | Viewed 5366 times ]


The upper picture is SMC 3 x Giants.
The lower picture on the left is the commercial in season 1-2's style, and the picture on the right is the same picture on the left but with eyes and mouth taken from the Giants' picture. Basically, the mouth is the same: Takahashi's kind of smile, which is pretty different than the mouth in previous commercials still in season 1-2's style.

Basically, the new mouth in SMC 3 x Eagles is the same mouth Sako drew.
It means that, changing eyes and mouth of the first commercial showed, we have this:

sako's mouth.png
sako's mouth.png [ 284.02 KiB | Viewed 5369 times ]


I think that the new commercial is really close season 1-2, beside the eyes: the face is basically season 1-2's style with different eyes, like a sort of moving back.
So, if Takahashi was already changing Usagi's mouth in one of the latest commercial of season 1-2, who's drawing this mouth, now, which is exactly Sako's mouth minus the lipstick? :smug:

The new art, to me, is really close past style but with new eyes.

Attachment:
sako with new eyes.png

(is the new mouth the signal of Sako's coming back... or someone drawing Sako-like... the way Takahashi's way of drawing the mouth was the first signal of Takahashi when we had still commercials in season 1-2's style? :eeklez: )

Sorry for the weird posts ^_^' (yes, I know, it's weird) All this mess for saying that the mouth of the latest commercials for season 1-2 was already Takahashi-ish and the actual mouth is again Sako-ish :googly:

It's doubtful that Sako is ever coming back. She was a freelancer when she worked for Toei and her contract has ended. Plus her style is very... angular. The new style has elements of her work, but it's most likely from imitating Takeuchi.

(Also everyone needs to remember that the next character designer will likely become chief animation director so they need someone who can dependably redraw as many frames during the corrections phase of production. Sako was removed from the role of Chief AD after Act 6 which was... odd.)

I found this season 1/2 art on Tumblr that I've never seen before. I really like Venus and Mercury's poses. :mrgreen:

I think most of the corrections were done by the studios animating the episodes + Kozue Komatsu who took over as Chief Animation Director after Sako was taken off. The last time Sako did any corrections to my knowledge were the last two episodes of Season 2.

It also resembles the 90s anime a little bit.

Yeah the newest style for Usagi reminds me a bit of this one, also very recent but for the 90s anime

Maybe they're done by the same artist who's trying to make it look a bit different for Crystal and Classic but the similarities are still there

As beautiful as S3 could be, I wish they'd gone with the rainbow motif in that fanart for her Super form. :(

I guess the gradient effect was too time consuming. They made the yellow and blue stripes, made a filter that blended the edges together, but it didn't have the intended effect.

I think that they followed the 90s design instead of the manga's design. It would've have been too complicated to add another stripe of green to the fuku's skirt if they could add the gradient - there's more complicated detail like the lines of the sailor collars in the show.

Is the cigarette carton part of the poster, or just a reference for scaling?

Yeah, using cig boxes for acale is pretty common among Japanese auctions. It'd be weird if SMC was being used for contraceptive ads AND cigarettes, lol...

Found these on Twitter. They seem to be the "hybrid" style from the new season 3 and based off old images:

I like them. They look like Naoko's style.

I love the new style too but they seriously need to get on with telling us SOME news instead of just redrawing old art.
