Sailor Zodiac Virgo by washipuppy Sailor Zodiac Virgo by washipuppy
For :icondrachearannak: Contest.I'm a virgo, and so... I design my zodiac as a Sailor Scout.

SO! Character details:

Name: Gwenith Astor
Age: 17
Birthday: 27th August
Birthstone: Peridot
Colour: green and brown (With a bit of blue. Green and Brown feels much more Virgo to me)
Techniques:
Primary - Spica Harvest Cloud: Sailor Virgo places both hands behind her back before sweeping them outwards and forwards, flinging a handful of sparkling dark brown powder in front of her that confuses enemies, causing tears, coughing and irritation to those she hits. This powder is flammable, as was discovered one awkward adventure.
Secondary - Silica Sappara Strike: Sailor Virgo raises both hands above her head, releasing a cloud of sparkling dark brown powder into the air above her which coalesces into a dark pink and brown curved axe-sword. She then brings this sword down to strike the enemy with a damaging attack.
Likes: Lists, Sudoku, riddles, whole grain everything, being outdoors.
Dislikes: Being the centre of attention, having nothing to do, pollen (She gets terrible hay-fever, which makes spring a pain because she wants to stay outside and enjoy the new sun, but she spends high pollen days with a swollen face and runny nose)


Some design notes...
Virgo is often depicted with wings and a sheaf of grain, so I decided to design a set of wings using a grain motif. That's probably my favorite part ^^
Sardonyx, Virgo's stone (Why are my rocks so obscure? Peridot and Sardonyx -_-) is described as looking like a finger nail, pink or brown with a white line, like a french manicured nail. I tried to echo that in her eyes and earrings.
Sappara's are a Assyrian weapon shaped like a harvesting implament. It just seemed to suit her.
I wanted her hair to be the colour of a field of ripe grain. My fellow Australians might not have seen that for a while XD
Why do no scouts have opened toed shoes? Do they all have smelly feet? Or maybe it's an Oc Health and Safety issue. Either way, I wanted to do something a bit diferent.

Anyway, enjoy ^_^
