Lullaby from Triton by Delight046 Lullaby from Triton by Delight046
Done with 95% Watercolors, 3% colored pencils, 2% white acrylic paint, and 1% patience.
Started: July 23rd (sketch)
Finished: August 2nd

To be honest, I'm not really happy how this turned out. It's A LOT darker than I intended, and has less watercolor effects going on. :/ Oh well, I guess I'll chalk it up to experience and try to be a little more patient as I'm working on a picture. ^_^;; Although it looks better farther AWAY than up close. >_>

Anyway....I started this project thinking that I've spent waaaaay too much time drawing the moon princesses, that I should try drawing a different sailor senshi. Also it's been awhile since I've drawn a violinist (March delight046.deviantart.com/art/… ), that it would be good to get that out of my system too. BANG, 2 with one picture! Hehehhe!

I also needed some pratice with drawing arcetecutre, so I threw in Neptunes, Triton Castle in for experience points (from the manga). The original castle did not have waterfalls falling from the castle, but I thought it would tie in better with the seascape.


Princess Neptune/Triton Castle are copyrighted by the ever so lovely Naoko Takeuchi.

Yup!

Although someone asked why I didnt have Neptune with her mirror like Pluto with her staff, Uranus with her sword, and Saturn with her scythe. >_>

As much as I like mirrors, I think a violin suits Michiru better. :3

You also captured Neptune's "Great Dark Spot", too.

Ahahaha, you noticed my mistake. In all truth, I started this project with Neptune and didnt plan ahead with the other outer scouts very well. I kept keeping their talismans with them and realized after I finished Uranus that....I plum forgot Neptunes mirror!!! BAH.

Although in my defense, you could say the ocean in that picture reflects the sky/castle....so the mirror is unnecessary (not to mention, It'd be hard to play a violin and hold a mirror at the same time).

You even included her castle! Not enough fans, in my opinion, seem to remember the Senshi castles.

I thought I had responded to your comment on my ipod, apparently it didnt go through. T___T

The senshi castles were only mentioned once in one chapter of the manga. Thats probably why some fans dont remember it. tbh, I had to do a google search to find the reference for the castle as I was doing this drawing. XD

 XD But yeah, if I do any more senshi as princesses, I'll probably draw them with their respective castle. The moon palace has been over done (but thats normal because the series is about Sailor moon) so I'd probably save that for last.

i love this! it is absolutely gorgeous and the colour palette works sooo beautifully together. it kind of reminds me of something i would see in the anime comic Tsubasa, it's one of my favorites. xD

Awwww, thank you! I'm glad others like this picture, despite all the clunky parts I see. XD

Which Tsubasa comic are you talking about? Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles or Captain Tsubasa? (theres probably more tsubasa comics than that, but those are the two that come to mind atm). ^_^;; I absolutely love TRC (Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles) and CCS (Card Captor Sakura) by CLAMP. :3

lol it's flawless!!! Love 
and yes i am talking about the Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles i believe. Your piece and the novels' theme really connect in my mind. It was the first thing i thought of. :D (Big Grin)

OH BELIEVE ME THERE ARE FLAWS! My art professors from college would tear this thing apart starting with light source/shading. XD But thats my inner critic talking. It doesn't looks that bad....but there are a few things that are stretched into "believability". ^^;;

I never thought if in that way...but you do have a point. This picture takes place in an alternate world of the Sailor Moon Series, and TRC is all about alternate dimensions and the stories that happen there.  Nice tie in! :D But yeah, I love CLAMP's work. One of these days I'll draw my own comic and not have to worry about coloring/light sources etc! ^^
