According to Wikipedia, Gaia theory states "that the entire Earth is a single unified organism; in this view the Earth's biosphere is consciously manipulating the climate in order to make conditions more conducive to life."

As many of you have noticed, I got the idea from Final Fantasy: the Spirit Within (which IMO was really good movie).

Interestingly (and again), I was almost done and was about to reduce the size to save it as JPEG, I pressed some weird button and photoshop exited without even asking me to save it and I lost almost 1/3rd of the file! Funny how same thing happened while I was working on "Eclipse". So I basically had to redo the entire starfield and not surprisingly I could not get the same effect as before! (Maybe the computer was consciously shuting down PS for some reason like the theory ^^)

This took me 2 Fridays and 3 Saturdays to finish because I couldn't work on it during the weekdays...

Time: 20++ hours over 5 days
Layers: 78
File size: 700mb (I have no idea why the file is so huge!)

Anyway, enjoy!

In that case, Pluto and the asteroid field are miscarriages, Venus is Earth's little sister by a few minutes, Mercury is an infant, Mars is a toddler, Jupiter and Saturn are the big twin sisters, and Neptune and Uranus are big brothers.
