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

Lol, I take it that Kakyuu is your favorite senshi?

I dunno, I may draw her again in the near-ish future. :)

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...?

All the above, with the generals as well (cuz there are guys in the hinamatsuri display thingi too).

I dont know if I could tackle such a project....BUT IT WOULD BE COOL!

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

I'm glad you like it!

Yeah that background pops more than princess Kakyuu. XD LOL

I'm glad you like it. ;)

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.
