Cosmic Zoo: Pleiades by Shivita Cosmic Zoo: Pleiades by Shivita

Please do not edit, reproduce or redistribute



Second 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)

These are the Pleiades, The seven sisters or Messier 45

Pleiades means 'doves' in Greek. In mythology, they were nymphs that Zeus transformed into doves and then into stars.
It's a open star cluster that is made of white-blue stars and some nebulosity. It's a relatively new objet, formed approximately during the Mesozoic era.
This is one of my favorite objets in the sky, it's easy to see even from big cities. If you have a telescope or even binoculars, I recommend you to search for them and take a look ♥

Made in Photoshop CS



Other in the series:
Sirius
Milky Way

Who knew stars could be made so uber adorable?  The Pleiades is one of my favorite sky objects as well, so I'm thrilled to find this.

May I ask, Shivita, what kind of music do you listen? I know you must have been asked before, but I'm really curious. You seem to be deeply inspired by music.

Oye eres de Mexico? para que te conteste en español xD
Pues mira, escucho de todo, siempre que sea musica bien hecha me gustará.
Pero creeo que lo que mas me inspira es el New age, el Techno y el Rock progresivo :3

I absolutely love the way this came out. If you don't mind, I'd like to use the picture for part of my school project. I need a visual art form to go along with the book "Pigs In Heaven" by Barbara Kingsolver, and I think this picture would fit in very well with the symbols used in the book. I will keep the watermark on the image and you will be given full credit.

You are really really talented. This picture is marvellous. I love how you made this picture from Greek mythology. The doves are really beautiful and the glow is magical.

when all stars are like this...i really want to catch all stars from the sky :XD: it looks very cute :iconx3v2plz:
mabye you can bring a bit more emotion in the eyes...but i think it very hard ^^" bird eyes always hard! i battle with eyes from birds too :meow:

what i found really good is, that you make muuuch copyright on this picture :D 2 times the dA adress and your signatur (Shivita ^3^)
i think it's a cool idea that the pleiades are playing with the....shiny things :XD: (stars?)some eat them and the other take it on the feets!^^ you really draw better and better! n_n

PS: mabye it was a asteroide? did you know that, we have around the earth a big big asteroid? he cames very near at the earth...i hope the researchers find a solution for this big thing ._."

I saw that cluster of stars before (forgive me if my typing is sloppy, I have a head ache ^^;)

I also love that song much, the songs you listen to mostly inspire you to draw.

P.S Your english is perfect!
