I am working on a portrait for a friend's daughter that takes place in space, and I am really liking how the planets are looking. So I isolated them, and here they are. I took some artistic license with the scale, and I included Pluto, because I'm no cliquey busybody.

I'm juggling a bunch of projects this week, so I have to put this one on short pause, but I hope to finish it soon. Then I'll post the completed portrait (it's for a really cool nine-year-old and one of my personal heroes) and we'll have a look at that too.
