solar system series

Golden and slippery, nothing flows through dusty rooms or across dirty faces quite like sunlight. Icy, hot, there isn’t much difference when it’s kissing your cheekbones like a lover and assaulting your eyes like a double edged sword. It smells like afternoons and childhood and tastes like slaughtered expectations and perfection. It’s the closest we’ll get to touching the center of our universe, the very thing we revolve around, we should be flying toward it instead of letting gentle beams hurtle millions of of lightyears to caress our broken faces and illuminate the inside of our twisted heads.

Hundreds of years in the future, humans have colonized the solar system. The U.N. controls Earth. Mars is an independent military power. The planets rely on the resources of the Asteroid Belt, where air and water are more precious than gold. For decades, tensions have been rising between these three places. Earth, Mars and the Belt are now on the brink of war. And all it will take is a single spark.

These A5 Illustrative drawings were my first ever commission piece I did for a friend of mine. Each illustration took around 5/6 hours each. The detail and lines within these illustrations created I used crosshatching and dot work. I enjoy working with inks and detailed illustrations. I am currently working on a second project for the same person, using the same details and crosshatch works to create a solar system Illustrative series.


Planet Earth.
The above images may look like art, but they are indeed places on Earth. Most of them are part of NASA’s Earth as Art. Click each image to see where they are.

Fun facts about the Earth:
• Earth is the only planet with only one moon.
• The Earth is not a perfectly round sphere, it bows outward at the equater as if it was stepped on (like an oval). The actual shape is “oblate spheroid”
• Earth is the only planet that has liquid water that can freely flow on the surface - Mars occassionally has liquid water but it quickly evaporates
• This planet is the only one that has an atmosphere that consists primarily of oxygen

New day, new series of photos. I’m going to try to blog about the planets of the Solar System; First up is Mercury, which is the smallest and innermost planet. With a diameter ~4878km, it is smaller than some of the moons in the Solar System. The small planet in a 3:2 resonance with the sun, giving it a unique position where a single day takes 2 Mercurian years. It has the smallest tilt of any planet in the Solar System at just 1/30 of a degree.


Mercury is well known for having a heavily cratered surface. This image taken by NASA’s messenger probe highlighted the fact that the surface of Mercury is significantly more heterogeneous than Mars or the Moon. This accurately reflects the random nature of comet and asteroid impacts, which are believed to be the primary cause of the planets cratered appearance. An example of an impact basin is Caloris Planitia, which was discovered in 1974. Mercury has multiple compressional features, as when its interior cooled, it contracted and its surface began to deform.


Mercury has been explored by 2 NASA spacecraft (Mariner 10 and MESSENGER) and will be explored by 2 spacecraft made by the European Space Agency and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (Project name: BepiColombo).

Mariner 10 was the first spacecraft to visit Mercury in 1974, with the primary aim to map out the geological features. However, due to its trajectory, all of its close approaches were on the same side of the planet, meaning only 45% of the surface was accurately mapped. It did provide many photographs of the surface on the planet that helped reveal some geological features, such as the many craters. It also revealed the fact that Mercury has a magnetic field that deflects the passing solar wind.

MESSENGER was the second and most recent exploration of the planet, with its first fly-by of the planet in early 2008. Its primary aim was to find the answers to key issues, such as whether Mercury has ice at its poles. The spacecraft was capable of taking much higher resolution images than its predecessor, allowing the terrain to be studied in much greater detail.

Finally, the BepiColombo mission conducted by the ESA and the JAXA is expected to reach Mercury in 2025 and carry detailed analysis of the Magnetosphere of the planet whilst studying the planet in different wavelengths, such as UV.

Thanks guys if you made it this far. I know this is a LOT longer than my usual posts but I thought that it would be good to talk about the planets and their observational history in a bit more detail since there are only a handful of them nearby.

🌟 October Klance Fic Roundup 🌟

» 3 Words or Less by fairietailed

“Keith,” Pidge says, resting their elbow on the table and their chin on the palm of their hand. “Describe Lance in three words or less.”

» Bottle Episode by themoistplinth

Everyone is sick of Keith and Lance’s constant bickering yet they still insist that they’re friends. The gang bet that Keith and Lance couldn’t spend three days locked in a room together without hurting each other, and they’re not entirely wrong.

» can’t fight this feeling anymore by okanus

The one where Lance’s mom guesses Keith is his boyfriend. Lance would hate to disappoint her.

» Champagne Supernova by Redburn

Keith tries to ask Lance to marry him. Then he tries to ask him again. And then he tries again-

By the forth time he’s pretty sure the universe is just fucking with him now.

» chasing sunsets and moondust by starglowed

in which keith wishes on fireflies and lanterns, makes small talk with aliens, watches a supernova, and falls in love with lance in the most unexpected, painful ways possible.

» Closer by chloroophyll

They start out as rivals, but then Keith figures out he has a big ol’ gay crush on Lance and it only escalates from there.

» C Major by Lindsword

Having the walking shitpost that is Lance McClain as a piano teacher when you were expecting the big teddy bear Hunk Garrett is to say the least, a rude awakening to Keith.

» Drive It Like You Mean It by Zizzani 

The Castle of Lions is the venue for the city’s most dangerous illegal street races where drivers come to test the cut of their tires. Lance has long defended his title as champion, but when a newcomer shows up and threatens his position things take an interesting turn.

» Expectations and Determinations by Creepofish

(In which Keith has to confront well hidden expectations and Lance is determined to finish what he started)

» Heroes by Battleshidge 

“My mom always hated the Garrison and what we were supposed to do there. I never got it. How can you despise the idea of being a hero?” Lance laughed a little here, dryly. “But I think I understand now.”

He took a shuddering breath.

“Because heroes aren’t meant to survive,” he choked, and then buried his face as the tears started falling again.

» I’d Rather be in Your Arms by FreckledLance

“And if it is fate, you were fated to meet Lance as well.”

Keith chokes.

» Marked by lissa molloy

AU wherein humans were marked by their lifetime bonds with patterns on their arms. Romantic love, family, friendship, and enemies are all fair game, but Keith has gone his whole life without a single mark. That is, until he got stranded in space with the members of team Voltron and Allura and Coran.

» never been kissed by kairiolette 

“You give off the obnoxious popular vibe. The mullet, and the rap sheet, and—the fingerless gloves,” Lance replies, and barrels on before Keith can take it the wrong way. “I’m so handsome, my name’s Keith and I’m a pilot.”

» november knockout by shizuoh 

“Homosexuals are going to Hell!” the lady in the second row screams.

With an angry glower, Keith whirls around and grabs Lance by the arm, pulling him to face him.

“Let’s kiss.”

» Our Solar System (series) by bluepaladiiin

The planets and stars somehow align, and six stories about Keith and Lance somehow are all true.

» Pretty Boy by MilkTeaMiku 

A pretty Spanish boy shoves a bouquet of flowers under his nose and tells him to stop and smell the roses, so Keith does.

» Sight for Sore Eyes by writewild

Photographer!Lance’s deadline for the magazine he works on the side for is coming up really soon, and has to search last-minute photo opportunities soon. One boy catches his eye.

» The Greater Enemy by genericfanatic

Lance is displeased when he finds out his crush and childhood friend is dating Takashi Shirogane

Keith is displeased when he finds out his foster brother is dating Princess Allura

Both are equally displeased that this means they end up having to live together.

So they decide to do something about it.

» Whiskey by Redburn

“What’re you drinking?” the sultry voice asked.

Keith glanced up, momentarily shocked into silence. The guy - not even kidding - was fucking stunning.

They meet in a bar.

» you’re so sweet; will you be mine? by jojotxt

A new bakery pops up right across the street from Lance’s bakery.

In which Lance is an idiot, Keith is an asshole, and Pidge is the next Dr. Phil.

ddistilled  asked:

Do you happen to have any original characters? What do you like to draw other than hetalia? :0

Yes! I do :D

I mostly draw gijinka and other anime fanart when I do not draw Hetalia haha.

I love to draw Kaneki-kun a lot recently, I also occassionally draw web browser gijinka….

Touken Ranbu (because I love the designs), SnK parodies because the show is too gloomy lately haha…

Celestial personifications and comics for my Solar System and Friends series….

Chicken bishies! haha…

…and gijinka in general

oh, also some weird stuff like this.

I’ve finally got round to continuing with my series of photos about the planets of the solar system! Next on my list is Venus. Venus is the second closest planet to our home star and notable for many strange oddities. For example, it has a rotational period of 243 days, whilst a year takes just 225 days. It has a diameter of ~12100km, making it very similar in size to Earth. It is often compared to Earth as its so-called twin planet, which may be true for aspects such as mass, size and proximity to the sun, but for almost everything else, they are vastly different.

Io - Moon of Jupiter.
Hell in the solar system

Io is full of highly active volcanism. The surface is a hellish place. It’s hot and constantly errupting. It’s believed that the moon is super hot because of the force of Jupiter’s gravity constantly pulling on it, creating heat.
The eruptions glow bright colors because it’s shooting ions into space. Now that’s cool.

anonymous asked:

Can we I have a happy coran imagine? Honestly, I just want coran happy, he deserves to happy, that weird little mustache.

Coran handed you the book and climbed another step on the library’s ladder.

“I remember these from my days at boot camp, quite a spry young man,” Coran said, wiggling his mustache at you.

You snorted and took another book from his outstretched hand.

“Are there any books about the nearby solar systems?” You asked, looking through the books you already held.

“Ah, yes! Here you go! Oh, wait, that’s for a book series’ solar system,” Coran said, looking disappointed.

“It’s fine! Want to go look at these?” You asked giving him a shining smile.

Coran smiled at you and jumped down from the ladder, landing with an ‘oof’ on the floor.

“Shall we?” Coran said, offering his arm.

I’m back to blogging about the planets! Next up on the list is Earth. Earth is the third closest planet to the Sun and is undoubtedly the most studied. With a diameter of ~12700 km, it is the largest terrestrial planet in our Solar System as well as being the most dense. So far, it is the only location known to contain life, however, in the future, this may change. It has one moon, which I shall blog about later. Our planet has lots of different aspects worth exploring, however, for the sake of keeping this post a reasonable length, I’ll explore a handful.

I’ve most definitely posted about Europa before but it definitely deserves many posts.

Europa is one of Jupiter’s largest moons. Europa has recently been more focused on because of the fact that it shows signs of an ocean underneath the surface, as pictured below.

External image

The cracks in the surface are believed to be from Jupiter’s gravity twisting and pulling on it, causing cracks in the surface ice. The lines are believed to be from salty water rising to the surface and refreezing. This ice, I might add, is WATER. This is what makes it so exciting. Having a warm ocean underneath increases the possibility of there being life forms under the ice.

Circles in the Czech trailer

listen.  look.  I’ve been talking about the excessive number of circles on this show for like two years, now.  I think that they mean emotions because they’re like the planets in the solar system.  (They are something that Sherlock claims to not know about because he has no use for this knowledge.  Except he saves one of the hostages in TGG with his astronomical knowledge and he does, clearly, have feelings).

This is not accidental.  They are deliberately choosing a circle motif when they could more easily go with a rectangular motif.  For example, here,

And speaking of circles,

This bullet is coming towards Sherlock in slow motion.  It looks 100% solar system themed, whether we see it as a circle, a crescent moon or an eclipse,

The, ’miss me?’, disk is the first time we’ve seen information shared in a circular format.  The Bruce Partington Plans and the AGRA memory stick were both rectangular.  (I see rectangles as being associated to reason, logic and to Mycroft.  Specifically not to emotions).

If you’re skeptical, we can see at the Marylebone Road that Sherlock comes through a door with rectangular glass and feels confident in surprising John and then a door with a circle on it closes over the previous ones and he is now paralysed with fear.  In his mind, he thinks this is a good idea but once the feelings hit, he panics.
