Essence from Tankei by Delight046 Essence from Tankei by Delight046
Done with Watercolor, Acrylic, and Colored pencils

I realized belatedly that the planet Kimoku IS referenced in the sailor moon stars anime..and I didnt put it in this picture. :< Oh well...

But since it was destroyed anyway in the sailor moon series, I decided to draw a make believe world within Kakyuu's incense burner (which also doubles as her castle. Oh yeah I'm sneaky smart like that!). I also made a pretty broad reference to the "starlights" in the upper left hand corner (I'm working on a princessy picture of them as well). I'm not very....content...as to how the butterflies came out, but meh, I'll live with it.

I hope y'all enjoy it! :3

EDIT: Realized belatedly that I misspelled "Essence" as "Essense". LOL, wut? Has been changed to correct spelling! :D

(looks like your submission expired Tears
if you'll add this note to the description of the work
and resubmit tomorrow - it should go right through Nod

thanks watercolorists administration)

Princess Kakyū would make for another candidate for a portrait of her in a Kimono, wouldn't she?  Don't you think?  (thumbs-up). 

What do you think?

All the senshi would look great in a kimono IMO. XD

Now I'm starting to wonder if I can even stick ALL the senshi in their own heian kimono for a single Hinamatsuri picture. Probably have to go with digital.....cuz watercolor would require me buying a larger sheet of paper. XD

By ALL of the Senshi, do you mean: 
* Inners, Outers, Asteroid & Royal Family (Moon, ChibiMoon & Tuxedo Mask)...? 
* Dito with Kakyū & Star-Lights...? 
* Dito with Kakyū, Star-Lights, & other Senshi like Chū, Mermaid, Coronis, Maū, Cocoon, & Lethe & Mnemosyne...?
* Dito with Kakyū, Star-Lights, & other Senshi, & Galaxia, Cosmos & ChibiChibi...?

Why thank you! I enjoy making starry backgrounds with watercolor, despite how long they take. But they look so pretty afterwards. :3

Sweetness.  But, while basing the form of her castle off of the incense burner she was safeguarded within by ChibiChibi was a good idea,  I would have made some differences with the bottom of the castle, myself, for ballast/balance. 

If your doing the Sailor Star-Lights as well, will they be getting a castle each, Or are they going to have a conjoined castle, like you did for the Asteroid Senshi?

^^ Yup! And Eventually I'll get to the Galactica picture as well. ;D

To be completely honest, I havent decided yet as to what kind of castle(s) that I'll give the starlights (and I started coloring this monstrosity and I forgot the castle(s).....whoops!) . Technically the starlights are princesses from the small satellites that orbit Kimoku, but they also band together to find their precious princess.....so I dunno. I'll probably dream up something considering I haven't gotten too far in the coloring process.

What I know for certain is that in the starlights picture, Kimoku/Kakyuu is heavily suggested/mentioned, so the two pictures tie eachother together. Other than that, you'll just have to wait and see.

What kind of dresses would you do for the Sailor Star-Lights' Princess Forms?  All I know about the Sailor Star-Lights that might help is that: 
* Fighter's personal colour is a Blue colour ( ai-no-senshi.net/gallery/artbo… & ai-no-senshi.net/media/image-g… ). 
* Healer's personal colour is a Green colour ( ai-no-senshi.net/gallery/artbo… & ai-no-senshi.net/media/image-g… ). 
* Maker's personal colour is a Purple colour ( ai-no-senshi.net/gallery/artbo… & ai-no-senshi.net/media/image-g… ). 

Hope this all helps.

aaaand I beat you to the dresses already: I gave Fighter a pastel blue dress, Healer a pastel green dress, and Maker a pastel purple dress (on the same lines you were thinking about). I guess great minds think alike? :P

Although You'll have to wait and see for the design of the dresses. :P

I also picked up a couple of non-art-bucket-list projects so I may wait to post those till they are completely done. >D

Haha! With all of these project, it sure seems like I'll never get to the end of them. XD

Which may mean I'm getting close to burn out....with a specific media (watercolors).... :<

Yeah I hope I dont either. :< Usually it means that I need to switch mediums for a little while (thats why I flip flop between watercolor and digital sometimes).

I may try to do some comics or something to throw a different medium type to hopefully bypass burn out (I'm full of creative ideas, but having the energy and time to do them is the kicker). XD

I suppose that, if you were to give the Sailor Star-Lights a conjoined castle, like you did for the Asteroid Senshi, it's name might be "Trinity Castle", or something like that... 

What ould you name their castles, if they have one each?  Or if were a conjoined castle, like for the Asteroid Senshi?

I'm still debating about a conjoined castle, or separate. Decisions decisions.... How I've done the the picture so far makes it difficult to stick in a building or buildings, unless they are placed a certain way. :/

I dunno at the moment for castle(s) names because I tend to name castles once they are finished or go with a general theme. Till then, I'll keep brainstorming and let you know when I come up with something devious. :P
