Princess of Observation by Delight046 Princess of Observation by Delight046
Done with 95% watercolors, 3% acrylic, and 2% colored pencil/lead

Here's Princess Pluto! Overall it turned out great because I used a higher ratio of watercolor and less acrylic to fix mistakes (it's one of those paintings that seems to paint itself). Although it has less details that some of the other senshi's I've done.

For this picture, I wanted to reference Plutos staff without drawing it (cuz I suck at straight lines)....so I opted for a sailormoon object I've never drawn before: The time key's. I also chose the term "observation" for Pluto, because of her interest in Biology, and that as a sailor senshi...she had to observe the fall of the silver millennium from afar. Basically going for a bittersweet feeling

I tried painting the dwarf planet pluto (I still think of pluto as a regular planet btw) from the recent photos from July of this year, but didnt draw it as well as I would have liked. You can kinda see the heart to the right of Pluto's right shoulder.

I think I've been selling my sailormoon prints at AI for a number of years (I think I started back in 2015 or 16?)

Years start to blur together as I get older. =__='''

Pretty!

Idk about anyone else, but I like how you opted for a lighter skin tone for her. I know it's not technically "accurate," but since Pluto is usually associated with dark colors anyway, I thought it was a nice contrast. :)

Great jo!

TBH, I always kinda have a difficult time drawing pluto, especially on a dark background. I did try to make her skintone a little darker than I normally do, but yeah....I like it that I didnt makeher too dark as well. ^^

im glad you like how it turned out! :)

To me Pluto will always be a planet....because I did a research project about it in the 5th grade. 

However, I went ahead and changed it in my description to dwarf planet. :(

I agree with you! My favorite part is Setsuna's expression/staring intently at the key she's holding. ^^ I like it when I have characters doing something in my picture rather than just standing there looking....er...pretty. XD

In the Manga, both Luna and Ami Mizuno/Sailor Mercury are using computers all the time, mainly in the Senshi's secret headquarters located under the arcade.  In the first Arc, the Laptop Supercomputer is used by both Luna and Ami Mizuno/Sailor Mercury, but it disappears altogether, and either the computers in the headquarters are used, or Silver Millennium software on Earth technology hardware:

Ah, I stand corrected. For some reason I thought I recalled Setsuna holding a test tube, but I guess it doesnt exist anywhere. :/

Well I went looking for this "setsuna with a test tube" picture, and didnt find it. I think I got her mixed up with professor Tomoe (there is a picture in supers where he's holding a test tube in the manga).

Thanks for all the referencing tho! *huggles*
