I underestimated how difficult painting planet Jupiter would be. Looking at it now it looks pretty good, but I wasnt aware till I tackled this picture how many storms Jupiter has on it. Which is pretty cool....despite how it drove me kinda crazy for a while. lol, I kinda gave up on the Camellia bush. Camellia flowers look alot like roses so I thought I'd leave it as is.

Overall, meh, I'd give it an A- because it turned out fairly well.

Oh and in the Sailor Moon Manga, sailor Jupiter's castle Io was not shown to readers, so I came up with my own version. Although to be completely honest, it looks like an alien Eiffel

she is like my super favorite! and i love this art. i happen to love astronomy, even when i was a kid, even when
 sailor moon was not aired yet in 92, although i think as far as i am concern, it was 93 when it first showed in my country.. so when they aired sailor moon. i am more into the planets triples times as a kid, and studied the planets even more. i am an ex- astrologer/birthday, card reader, etc etc. as well (just not anymore, never again). but i still appreciate the art. so seeing this kind of art, really i do appreciate it... i like the mysticism feel kind of art. gosh sorry for sharing too much, i just like being chatty and making new friends. haha

Sailor Jupiter is my favorite and you drew her body perfectly, especially the legs which is what she's known for!

someone had the entire set on tumblr and had thankfully had a link to your page! 

Jupiter is my favorite character from Sailormoon. you did a really great job, i like all the symbols you put in. it's kind of a 'Where's Waldo' sort of thing.

I was sure I responded to this a while back but apparently DA lost my comment. >:(

It doesnt surprise me that someone had it up on Tumblr (I think a couple people asked if they could share the image on their site, and I ok'd it as long as they had a link back to me in some way shape or form. ^^;; SO YOU FOUND IT! GOOD! :D

Thanks for commenting! :D

I meant to mention, Princess Jupiter has Green-coloured hair:

Not according to this picture:…

As for Mars, I think she looks better with black hair and purple highlights to contrast the red. She doesnt need to be completely one color. :P

That second one isn't her Princess Form.

Bleh, I know.

But Jupiter only has green hair in that one picture (and this one: which would only be for the aesthetics of color (possibly to be used as a cover for one of the volumns in Japan? (Japanese read from Right to Left): Mercury has blue hair aleady (goes along with her power), Venus has yellow hair (matches her power too), why not do the same to Jupiter and Mars? All other pictures of Jupiter I've found has her with either brown or reddish brown hair. :/

It's okay to go ahead and theorize that Jupiter has green hair in her princess form. I personally like Jupiters hair being reddish brown because it matches the color of the great storm on planet Jupiter.  ^^;;;

It also doesnt help that Naoko didnt do much colored artwork of the princesses in their dresses. :/ It's like finding a needle in a haystack. Lots of fanart though! lol

I know.  It'd be nice if she had been definite.

:D Why thank you!

However I'm still not done with the project. Still have to draw Mamoru, Usagi, Chibusa and one other picture to complete the whole project. :3

Io Castle, there, kinda makes me think of that scene in the Avengers (… ), where Thor uses the Chrysler Building (… ) as a giant Lightning rod:  What about you?

I actually haven't seen any of the marvel movies, or read any of the comics. I know, Silly American that loves Anime and Comic books should read American comics right? Not this one. XD

I still think my version of Io castle looks like an alien version of the Eiffel tower.……
