Done with 80% watercolor, 17%Acrylic, and 3%lead.

Thought I was done with the "Senshi Royalty Project" and at Moon-Shadow-1985 's request, I went ahead and drew Kousagi, from Parallel Sailor moon with the Moon Prayer Tower (inside the Mare Serenitatis Castle).

Oddly enough this picture took A LOT longer than I anticipated....which I guess for me should be considered normal, cuz straight lines are the bane of my existence. OTL

I wanted to design this dress to be similar to the other Moon Royalty (Queen Serenity Senior, Neo Queen Serenity, and Small Lady Serenity) but also have a slightly different style. Hence the bust of the dress, and the crescent moon dangles on Kousagi's forehead echos Queen Serenity Senior's dress/design.  So instead of Princess Serenity shoulder circles, Kousagi gets two crescent moon shoulder circle thingi's. I REALLY like the shoulder cresents....despite knowing in the back of my crafty mind they would be insanely difficult to make. But hey, I'm an artist, I can make the impossible happen if I want. Muwahahaha!

For a while Kousagi's lowest skirt was dark blue (like the horizon) and tended to blend too well into the background. So I changed the bottom skirt to Yellow (hence the 17% acrylic, cuz I didn't plan as far in advance as I should have), which pops her out of the dark background nicely. :) Plus it would match her sailor uniform as well....who knew?! lol.

I've just realized that there's also the Parallel Inner Senshi; any thoughts about them with a castle, too?

Thanks! I'm glad you like it!

Yeah, Kousagi's dress had a couple revisions before I finally decided on the right design. I wanted some similarities to the other Serenity's because none of them are exactly the same anyway (at least with Queen Serenity, Neo Queen Serenity, and Small Lady Serenity). ^^

Wasn't expecting a Kousagi! This is awesome to see. I love her chain tiara/moon mark!

If there were going to be more Princess pictures, I'd think they'd be of Sailors' Chū, Mermaid, Coronis, Mau, & Cocoon, (the Senshi from the planets that AnimaMates' Iron Mouse, Aluminium Siren, Lead Crow, Tin Nyanko (Kitty), & Heavy Metal Papillon (Butterfly), had each came from respectively ( gallery.missdream.org/albums/s… & gallery.missdream.org/albums/s… & missdream.org/sailor-moon-scan… & gallery.missdream.org/albums/s… & missdream.org/sailor-moon-scan… & gallery.missdream.org/albums/s… & gallery.missdream.org/albums/s… & gallery.missdream.org/albums/s… & gallery.missdream.org/albums/s… & missdream.org/sailor-moon-scan… & missdream.org/sailor-moon-scan… & missdream.org/sailor-moon-scan… ). 

Sailors'
Lethe & Mnemosyne, being actual Sailor Senshi who joined Galaxia of their own free will, I think would also be included, IF Delight046 did decide to do more. 

I'm not sure about Sailors' Phi & Chi, though; I'm not sure if they're like
Iron Mouse, Aluminium Siren, Lead Crow, Tin Nyanko, & Heavy Metal Papillon (those who each betrayed their planet's real Sailor Senshi to Galaxia in exchange for their own Sailor Crystal Star Seed & planet to rule over), or if they are like Sailors' Lethe & Mnemosyne, (actual Sailor Senshi who had joined Galaxia of their own free will).
