The designs are all amazing, but Sailor Methuselah's is definitely my favorite. She looks so delicate and eerie, which perfectly captures her (somewhat tragic) backstory. I also feel like you managed to capture Naoko's quirks in a way a lot of fan artists don't. She looks like she could be a real Sailor Guardian from the Stars arc.

Oh my goodness, thank you so much!! I really love how her design turned out too. The goal was indeed to make her look delicate and eerie - I wanted the lace, pearls, and veil to suggest a woman much older than she appears. I definitely looked at a lot of pictures from the Materials Collection when making this, and the blue lace is modelled off the lace on Diana Fairy's costume. When designing her costume I remembered that in the manga, senshi from different star systems always seem to have unique uniforms, so naturally hers would be different from the senshi of our solar system.

Her fate is somewhat sad, and though she'd never admit it, she's envious of senshi who can be reborn without their memories intact and no one to tell them who they are. There are preset expectations of her each time she's reborn, and it's a lot to have to live up to, but she accepts it as her fate and tries not to be bitter about it.

Materials Collection -style sketch of Sailor Methuselah. This is a character I came up with ages ago, but the design is new. Methuselah is the unofficial name for the extrasolar planet PSR B1620-26 b. It orbits a pulsar star and a white dwarf star, and is around 12.7 billion years old. (the oldest planet known to date, and almost as old as the universe itself).

In my fancanon, Methuselah has a small population that is extremely long-lived (with the average lifespan in the millions of years). However, when someone on Methuselah dies, they are reincarnated (not always right away) and retain the memories of their past lives. These memories manifest themselves sometime around puberty, and when someone unlocks the memories of their past lives they have a coming of age ceremony where they invite people who were important to them in their past lives.

Sailor Methuselah is somewhat of an exception where if she dies, she is reincarnated almost immediately, and as the exact same person each time (no change in appearance or personality). If she always seems tired - it's because she is. Her soul has no time to rest between incarnations, and she doesn't have the freedom of not knowing who she is for a time after being reborn (since she's the same person each time, there's always someone to tell her who she is).

Her element is electromagnetism, which would make sense considering pulsar stars (like the one Methuselah orbits) are highly magnetized.

Uh, I like this drawing. I can also see the influence of Naoko’s aesthetic.
