This is amazing! The way you used watercolor in the hair gives off this liquid space like effect lol

This is impecable, the astroid debri, the nebula/deep space tones in his face and shirt... The craters and facial detail (as always :))... A wonderful combination of mediums! Seven more planets to go. HIT ME!! >:D (Btw, what is that sign on his ear??)

Thank you for your comment! I still miss seven planets, you said well, but I decided to do also the sun and the moon and I already know that it will take me a lifetime to do all of these paintings.. recently I started the moon and I am already going crazy :D
however the symbol that is on the ear, in theory, should be the symbol of Mercury, I hope it is right... hahah :D

This BLEW ME AWAY. Oh my gosh.

I love the subtle hints at the cosmos in his hair and his shirt, that's what caught me right away. Then I got a closer look, the craters in the skin, creative and masterfully executed. Those eyes! :faint: And the gold leaf, the perfect finishing touch! :worship:
