Princess of Charisma by Delight046 Princess of Charisma by Delight046
Done with 93% watercolor, 4% acrylic, and 3% colored lead

I had the hardest time picking a title for this picture. Typically Venus is known as the senshi of Love and Beauty, which...to me is "so what?" Beauty fades, and Love can as well. So a thesaurus word hunting I went, and found Charisma.....WHICH WORKS! (in my opinion) Especially with Minako wanting to be a Idol or singer.  ^^

This picture was 99% done one Wednesday, but then I realized that I made some little....mistakes. Primarily I had colored her bow red (when her princess dress bow is yellow) and I didnt have ribbons flowing out from her choker bow. So a fixing I go. I decided to leave the "dark spacy" background a little lighter just because I can make things appear too dark sometimes. :/ Granted it probably would have looked better if I made the background darker (made her pop more).

Still not sure about that volleyball. Meh. Hope Y'all enjoy it anyway!

Absolutely beautiful! And I really like that you included the volleyball, since its on of her passions, other than the passion that come with love (and I feel like that side of her gets ignored a lot in art).

Yeah, for this series I wanted to focus on things/talents that are maybe mentioned once or twice in the series, but not really gone into depth about.
It would have been easy to go with the "Venus is the Goddess of Love" but since it was already well known, the next thing was volleyball.

Honestly, I'm really glad I didn't title the piece "Princess of Volleyball". XD Charisma expresses Minako perfectly....in my opinion. XD

Oh, and thank you for the lovely comment! :D

Well I'm planning on doing all of the Cannon Senshi of this Solar system. If I do any more would require another watercolor book, AGAIN. XD

Wow! I am LOVING the yellow of Minako, here! I think you're right in wanting to have the background darker, the right side of the painting sort of just fades into the back (for me). Wonderful painting and I can't wait to see your next piece!

Oh the right side fades because I didnt extend the white on the transparent part of the dress all the way.

Bah, this is the picture that keeps on giving with things I missed. OH WELLLLLL

Ah, that was it! The transparency of the dress (though it's one of my favorite things about this series).

I feel you! Sometimes I look at things again and think, "oh, I should change this part, and this could be fixed" but 99% of the time, I don't even bother doing that!

Excellent. 

Really ties into her drive to be an idol/singer/actor.  Her star quality. 

(Her face is a little wide, though).

'Princess of Popularity' would have worked, too.

True, but that just sounds superficial. :/ Also 'Princess of Popularity' reminds me of this song: www.youtube.com/watch?v=xxMb_8…

(Never heard of the song).  The title, 'Princess of Popularity', really highlights Minako's Idol-chasing pass times from her first appearence onwards, (and her ambition to become an idol-herself), as well as the following that she gained as Sailor V, don't you think ( gallery.missdream.org/albums/s… & missdream.org/sailor-moon-scan… & missdream.org/sailor-moon-scan… )?

I'm aiming for a week, but I really dont know.

Queen serenity will probably take less time cuz she's wearing a white dress, but there are other places where the details are going.... D:
Jupiter will take awhile....ish...

Well, Serenity's dress IS a work of art.  I Wish It Was Mine! 

Did You Know?:  Princess Serenity's dress was based off of a western-style wedding dress:  (“My image of a princess is inspired to a considerable degree by a Western book and magazines specializing in wedding dresses, featuring just dresses like this in this kind of pose. That’s right. It’s a wedding dress Selenity is wearing! When princesses are in full dress, they wear cloaks. And they sit on pedestals like sanctuary shells, like flowers.”--Naoko Takeuchi):
