Cosmic Zoo: Milky Way by Shivita Cosmic Zoo: Milky Way by Shivita

Please do not edit, reproduce or redistribute



Third and final picture of a little spin-off of my old series "Animal planet", which was about representing the solar system as fantastic animals...but since I had finished the main celestial bodies, I thought about a couple more, but this time, outside this solar system. It only lasted for three drawings, but I may revive this interesting project someday, who knows? :) (Smile)

The Miky Way is the galaxy in which we live. There's no way of knowing it's aspect from the outside, but we know that it's likely that it's a spiral galaxy.
I've seen that in most representations, the Milky way is shown as purple, blue and a bit golden, so why not using those colors.

As for it being a unicorn...well, it had to do with the idea that I had for the Andromeda galaxy, and the fact that unicorns are very special to me.
I hope that I can find the way to revive this in some way, because there are so many other objects that could be added to the cosmic zoo.

Made in Photoshop CS



Other in the series:

Sirius
Pleiades

Haha, I agree ^w^ How can stars have anatomy? They're never uniform, so why should a unicorn made out of stars and stardust and space have any too?

(Well, the basic anatomy, but I find this picture very pretty)

Algunas personas de la antiguedad pensaban que la via lactea era un camino de leche derramado por una diosa, antes no había nada de contaminacion ni luz de ciudades y supongo que debió verse tan claro que parecia eso o.o

It's on one word gorgeous.
I once had an unstoppable love for unicorns, though it faded with time, but this piece of art reminds me of what I liked so much about them. :aww:

It's perfect the way it is, no complaining about anatomy from me at least x3


You can see the Milky Way when in countries like South Africa. There isn't much light pollution there, and you can see a strange white smudge in the sky :dummy:
