This is really interesting :) I always thought a gijinka was a mix of a human and an animal, or a pokemon or some other fantacy creature. These are planets though and i saw food and instruments; so what is the real definition of a gijinka?
Nijuuni Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I believe gijinka means a humanoid version of something, which could range from anything from animals to inanimate objects to concepts and ideas c:

Lloyd-Dono Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
could you help me come up with a design for a book i am writing. Moon? maybe. he is gentle but shining and brave. Artist block sucks and i just need a visual.
devilaphoenix Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I LOOOOOVE SKY! You've done her very well! CONGRATS!!! ;)
InsaneNinjane Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I like Kaivans belts XD Aita is amazing! Is that expression because Pluto is no longer considered a planet by some people?
formie Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2012  Hobbyist
in my opinion, Poseidon is the best of them all. I also liked Sky and Aita :) Beautiful!
roqueofspades Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I love them all except Kaivan. Just.... Saturn is a very freaky planet when it comes down to it. (Refer to the giant hexagon on its northern pole, and also look up YouTube videos of the sounds it makes.) I really love the idea, though I would have taken it in a totally different direction. That said, it definitely has its place in my Favourites, and it's definitely an admirable piece.

Hermes is adorable. Why has no one commented on how adorable he is?!

Aside from Hermes, I think Aita has to be my favorite. She just looks so awesomely sinister.

Wowzers. I would never have come up with a concept like this. Very, very unique and beautifully done as well.

Though I can't decide who I'd rather take home with me; Jove or Kaivan...? O//////O
