The electric fighter princess ⚡! Sailor Jupiter has always been my favourite scout next to Sailor Moon. As a kid I had a thing for tough girls in green (Buttercup)! I wanted Sailor Jupiter to be a sexy fighter, but not insofar as a Street Fighter female character kind of sexy. She's powerful, tall, loves being a woman and kicking butt, but would rather cloak her royalty than let anyone treat her differently for being a princess. Electrifying :)
I spent a lot of time on this one but never really got her into a place where I was inspired by her. I was trying to channel the swirling patterns on the planet, the colors from photos, and the idea of Jupiter being the god of the sky and thunder.
I like the lightning, the lighting around her body, the color, and the swirls, but there was just something about this that felt sort of bland to me. She doesn't feel unique or special. If I had more time, I would have redrawn her from scratch.
