I like the way you did Pluto. Hooded and small, nearly invisible. People ten to forget about him

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:

I like Kaivans belts XD Aita is amazing! Is that expression because Pluto is no longer considered a planet by some people?

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
