I actually finished Mercury late at night on the 15th, but thought "hey I'll just take a picture on Tuesday and then upload it". Wellll....I didnt have time to take a picture Tuesday morning (was late to work actually) and by the time I got home from work, the sun had started to set and it was a very yellowed light. So I waited till this morning to take a decent picture.

SO NOW I'M CAUGHT UP! WOOO! I will try really hard to get Jupiter done by Sunday. >D Priorities and Goals man, Gotta have em.

Also, since Mercury's castle was never shown in the manga, I made my own. TBH, it was based off of a slide (those things you see at a park that children play on) that I saw at this summers family reunion. XD And I like this castle MUCH better than Mar's castle (which I will redo).

Enjoy~!

Man, it looks like she makes that outfit look better than what Elsa could with the outfits she wore!

I dunno....Elsa IS pretty awesome. ;P

I should consider doing a "Who wears it better" drawing project. Example: Have Elsa and Mercury switch gowns, and have a poll for people voting who wore it better. XD

TBH, I'm into the old school Disney (90s era to be exact) That's more the reason why I'm not a Frozen fan, the other 5% is because they stole her looks from a popular game character. Yea, just 5 percent, because of the similarities in looks, the 95 percent being i'm old school. But yea, Mercury totally rocks the dress well, while i think on it, i think the first episode she shows up in is pretty cool, with that freezing fog skill of hers, using the reflections from the fog and the monitors, freaking AWESOME!

The whole Royal Senshi project is actually pretty magical. ^^;;

I take it Mercury is your favorite Senshi?

Beautiful.

I wonder with that is really what the castle looks like. One must wonder what the inside it and convenient or practical it is.

I wonder too what kind of castles Naoko Takeuchi had in mind for Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn (Venus's castle appears in the Sailor V manga).

Although for mercury's castle, she'd probably have an extensive library with places to read and learn (kinda like Disney's Beauty and the Beast). :3

I expect there to be some kind of large pool. Maybe as part of her main room or how people get around.

from where did you get the template of Castle from Mercury???

Thank you *___*

There is no official template for mercurys castle. I made it up. :(

I feel that it was a good idea to make Mariner Castle look Slightly like Mercury's Aqua Harp ( 40.media.tumblr.com/1243ba1f04… & 41.media.tumblr.com/1b974f21c7… & 41.media.tumblr.com/6f3a80fc1d… & silvermoon424.tumblr.com/tagge… ), was that intentional?

It actually was intentional, but I didn't want it to stand out to be too obvious. XD The slide reference I was going from had support posts underneith, where the "strings of the harp" are, but the reference looks completely different.  ^^;;

It was very subtlely done.

Beautiful drawing:D

Beautiful. 

So, that just leaves Jupiter & Io Castle left, before you do: 
* Moon Princess Serenity & the Moon Castle
* Neo Princess Serenity and the Crystal Palace Complex
* and the 30th Century Silver Millennium Royal Family and their private residence within the Crystal Palace Complex? 

:)

YAY!

Yes to the above, but you forgot one:
*Prince Endymion & Elysion Shrine (assumed earth castle).
Moon-Shadow-1985's avatar
If not, then that leaves open the possibility of designing the Earth Kingdom's castle, yourself, wouldn't it? 

:)
Delight046's avatar

......Maybe. But there isnt much artwork of the the Elysion shrine anyway, so I may as well do artwork of it for Prince Endymion's picture. :3
