Defiance from Phobos Deimos by Delight046 Defiance from Phobos Deimos by Delight046
Done with 75% watercolor, 15% Acrylic, 7% Colored pencil, and 3% panic/frustration/tears/regret

So finally 3 days after my sunday deadline, I finish my princess mars picture. I've had troublesome artworks before, but this one managed to get on my nerves more so than some. Mostly the fire part....it's one of my weaknesses and it came off fairly well, but the bottom portion of the "fire bending bow" just looks....bleh. Although the lava fire, is just pretty and I should have gone with that instead. Oh well. You live and learn.

On the flip side, I may have had a harder time with mars because she's one of the characters I like the least. She's pretty much the goddess of war, which enhances her fiery personality! Oh joy, let all the fire-related jokes commence! lol Well...that and having to use ORANGE, which is a color I detest because the planet mars is more of an orange red planet rather than red. So yeah thats probably why I dealt with problems. BUT ITS OVER! OH THANK GOD ITS OVER!

In the sailor moon manga, Phobos and Deimos castle is referred to, but never shown. So....I came up with my own version. Mars has two pet ravens (crows?) Phobos and Deimos so I incorporated that into the design as well (not to mention the symbol for mars). I didnt want to have the castle on just Phobos or Deimos, so I have it floating kinda between the two (although it's closer to Deimos rather than Phobos, cuz I have princess mars on Deimos).

Okay so why the Lava? Refer back to my comment on Mar's fiery personality: It's EXPLOSIVE. Not like fireworks, more like molten lava. LOOK OUT! RUN! OH FOR THE LOVE OF GOD...RUN! Also Princess Mars could totally thrive on a planet like that for archery practice. >_>

If you haven't already, please check out my other princesses! (more to come in the upcoming weeks!)

I love Mars, because not only is she fierce, she's very sophisticated. :D


And you're right, she could thrive on the planet. :D

I just....dont love mars. XD I think it's because the 90's dubbed version of sailor moon tainted my perception of her---that she's in competition with Usagi over Mamoru. I think now I can like mars as she is *coughfabulousinherownwaycough*, rather than think "she's a bitch". XD

Theres this little sailor moon personality chart that may explain things better. I tend to fall on the line of an EFNJ and IFNJ (Chibiusa and Hotaru), whereas mars is a ENTJ which is much more outgoing and confident than I am. >_>

I took a test like that once. I'm an ISFJ, Pluto. Which is funny because Pluto is one of my least favorite characters.

If you are planning to re-design Mars' Phobos-Deimos Castle, I'd keep most of the shape you've done there, but it might be a good idea to remove the two Raven-esq apparitions in the sphere on the top, and put flame-motif structures, like the Firebending Symbol ( img2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20… & avatar.wikia.com/wiki/Firebend… ) from the Avatar franchise:  What do you think?

Aha, yes I've seen Avatar (I stopped with Korra after the first book because I do not like waiting for the next episode), and I get what you mean.

The reason why I had the Raven-esq apparations is because of Mar's two Raven pets are also named Phobos, and Deimos. I think the real problem with my castle design was that I was trying to make it like the Mar's symbol (shape wise), rather than being creative. Probably a shrine/temple would suit as a castle.

RE:  Phobos-Deimos Castle Re-design. 

It's maybe worth a try. 

Then maybe the flame-motif structures, like the Firebending Symbol ( img2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20… & avatar.wikia.com/wiki/Firebend… ) from the Avatar franchise, might make for a good idea for Sailor Vesta's Castle, if you decide to go with including the Asteroid Senshi into you "Senshi Royalty Project"? 

P.S.  I apologise for having taken so long to respond, my old laptop's been misbehaving again, (bad laptop, bad).

Sunce you've said your planning on re-doing this one, I feel I should let you know that Mars' Castle is called "Phobos-Deimos" Castle, not "Phobos and Deimos" Castle.

I was certain that it was called Phobos and Deimos castle in the manga....but I could be mistaken. o___o;;; I'll have to look it up when my other computer is up and running (this one goes a little on the slow side on the interwebs. D:)

Ready designed (thumbs-up). Everything I Know about Magellan Castle is on this page; ( moon-shadow-1985.deviantart.co… ), and includes the links my other edited images of Princess Venus' home of Magellan Castle.

I hope they help.

Who's castle is next after Venus'?

:D Thanks for the reference! You are really excited about this project arent you?

After venus will be Uranus. I was hoping to do Uranus first and then Venus, but more people voted for Venus. Meh. Oh well. After that I dont really have a plan. It's more of a toss up between Mercury and Jupiter, and then I'll work on Earth (elysion), Moon (Palace on the moon), Chibiusa (Crystal Tokyo), and a family portrait of Queen serenity, Endymion, and Small Lady in the inner palace of crystal Tokyo (the one you showed me before).

Making it look like an alternate symbol for Mars (arrow pointing down) was inspired. As was the volcano theme (Olympus Mons?) Something similar, with fire, could be done for Vesta at a later date, perhaps?

Ohhhh! The Amazon Quartet/ Asteroid senshi. I didnt know that the 4 of them also had symbols.

I could probably do a similar project for the Asteroid senshi. :D
