Soldier of Silence
Ah, Sailor Saturn. I've been meaning to draw her for a long time now, but I was never able to portray her just the way I wanted to. This one's not quite it either, but it's close. I liked her expression in the sketch better, though. And her skirt should sit lower on her hips, it looks weird.
Sailor Saturn always has, and always will be, my favourite of the Sailor Senshi.
The sickly young girl, barely starting to become a woman, raised by her tortured single father, so fragile and shy. And yet, she awakens to become the most powerful of all the Senshi (with exception of Sailor Moon, who surpasses her after SuperS), able to destroy a whole world with one blow of her Silence Glaive if she wishes to do so.
It's a shame she doesn't appear much in the show.
I've never been too fond of her Super costume, it doesn't really suit her. So here's her original form.
