He looks very angelic. You know...like if someone pissed on his Angel Krispies and he was getting to smite said person Samuel Jackson style...

:jawdrop: This is just beautiful! The star textures on his robe are lovely, and his skin looks really soft, and the combination of the stars behind him and his pose just look so regal. I also really like the star halos you've been doing lately. A really striking and beautiful piece!

What really caught my eye is the ring around the planet, and the ring around his head. He looks so regal, even. Great choice of model. I LOVE this series. :clap:

Another great piece, but I wish the contrast was a little higher on his face.

Other than that, I love this series :heart:

It looks a bit darker on dA than in Photoshop, I swear! I will see what I can do to brighten him a bit without making him look faded.

Saturn was always my favorite planet....but whooee...this guy...I'm not sure I'd want to mess with him....he's kind of--well, he's got that smoldering sense of danger about him...

FanTAStic work, Sophie!!!!!!!! This one might be the best yet!!! :D

Yep--it was *perfect* for this project! Definitely a Saturn...although I probably wouldn't have recognized it, if I'd seen the original. So glad you have better vision than I do! ;)

Wait'll you see Neptune. PERFECT Neptune. But you know what I'm having loads of trouble finding? A Sun! I would like to use a little girl or little boy for the sun, but finding good, classical portraits of kids that would work is impossible. (Of course, I have a specific sort of look in mind: blonde, lots of curls or maybe lying on the floor with hair spread out.)

Oooo--can't WAIT!!!!!!!!! :D

And that would be PERFECT for the sun...but you're right...finding the right one would be difficult...although I must say, when you mentioned that, the first thing that leaped to mind was some backlit pictures I had of Kaitlin: [link] (I know it's not quite right--but right after I saw the little golden child--a kiddie out of a Bouguereau painting, with a mouth like a rosebud, and babysoft golden curls, I thought of the way I've always love the hair in this particular series...)

beautiful pic. I fall for the rings around the head and the emperor pose. Besides I just imagined the archetypal character much older.
