Loneliness from Charon by Delight046 Loneliness from Charon by Delight046
Done with 97% Watercolors, 1% colored pencils, 1% white acrylic paint, and 1% sleep deprivation inspiration?
Approximate time to complete: Uhhh, I dunno... 9 hours over a span of 3 days? I dont like keeping track of time (haha, maybe ask Setsuna because she IS the goddess of time? lol)

Yayyyy, I finished Sailor Pluto with Charon Castle on Pluto's moon Charon! :D Not many people know this, but in fifth grade our class got to research the different planets in our solar system and I got Pluto! So since then, Pluto (and other aspects of astronomy) always has a soft spot in my heart because she's more of an outcast than the other planets. Plus it didnt help in 2006 that the scientific community demoted pluto as a planet (got changed to dwarf planet??) . :/ OH WELL.

btw, that staff wand thingi took me a while to figure out. STRAIGHT LINES! THEY ARE THE BANE OF MY EXISTENCE! Maybe I should get a ruler? ugh...

I hope everyone likes the picture! :3

This totally fits her, since she was lonely throughout most of her life.

Wow! This has got to be my favorite now! Sailor Pluto is awesome as well and you convey her persona very well. I like how you use black and white for her dress because it makes the darkness of her hair pop out.

Originally in the manga, pluto's dress is black and white. (far right on the image below).

I added white highlights on her hair (reflection from the sun as a light source) so that her head wouldn't disappear into the starry background. ^_^;;; But I'm glad you like it! :D

"Hades/Pluto is considered as the god of the underworld and also he rules over all the wealth found in the core of the earth" xDD It's logical.

Oh my gosh....ITS WONDERFUL.My favourite senshi and planet=))) I think "loneliness" represents unrequited love, HEAVENLY hard work for eternity, hidden depths etc. In my opninon.

I agree. I know in the live action there was a suggestion that Pluto loved Endymion, but her love was unrequited. :( Plus it would suck watching your friends and family perish in the silver millennium and stay guarding a gate for a 1000 some years. D:

Pluto is a very mysterious character, but I always got the impression she's a rather lonely character. :(

If I was in the sailor moon world, I'd go up to pluto and give her a BIG hug! :D

You are right - she had to guard the gates of time in the future. Such a boring work:(

Beautiful. Simply awesome.

But...

IF you decide to redo this one too, (like Mars'), I feel that Charon Castle should be higher in the sky, (it feels like it's trying to hide).

Ahh, I see what you mean. I think the problem is that Pluto's gown is up a little high and it makes it look like the castles trying to hide. Also I may have cropped it a little too close to Castle Charon. It actually has another half inch or so to the right of the white part of the S castle shape on the original. I'm doing this project in a Watercolor Sketchbook, and whenever I take a picture of my work, I try to take it as close as I can to the spiral part, crop, and go from there. Wasnt paying as close attention to the right side (spiral is on the left). 

Although I dont think this one needs to be redone. Despite the Castle being a little on the low side, compositionally speaking, it's pretty balanced (going by the original from my sketchbook).  What I may need to do is take a different picture of Pluto so that extra .5 inch is in there, and maybe it wont bother you as much. :3

I just meant that it's rather low in the sky when it's suppost to be more center stage with Princess Pluto. :(:|

It's true it could be more up in the air, but it does leave it to the imaginative mind to make up a story why its so close to the ground. Maybe the castle "landed" on Charon so that princess Pluto could go for a walk? :3

But they don't need their castles to 'land' to go down onto their planet's surface?

This is really beautiful and her expression fits her perfectly! The staff is a little tilted, but that's ok. Her dress looks amazing! The splashes of red amongst the black and white is very creative, too! Awesome job!

If I made the part from her hand to the first key part, it would probably fix that tilted look. But i'm lazy, so I'll leave it as is for now.

Thank you for the lovely comments. x3 You've successfully stroked my ego and made my inner grumpy artist happy. :3

Ah it's fine. In fact, I think it doesn't really show that it's tilted so much.

You're welcome! I'm glad your inner grumpy artist is happy! And having an ego isn't too bad, I guess. Ene (Smile) [V7]

It's still slightly tilted (making the staff appear slightly curved). XD It's okay to be honest about it. Granted it's not blatantly noticeable, but it's still there.

Well actually I dont have much of an ego. XD I was just trying to find the right words that what you said was encouraging and made me feel better about myself/my art. ^^;;;
