They all look fantastic!  I would make a joke about what Sky smells like, but... Yeah, I think I've heard enough Uranus jokes in my lifetime.

You'll be happy to hear that scientists are consideringPluto to be a planet again. In about a hundred and something years, Pluto will make its revolution around the Sun, finally making it a planet.

Isn't Mars a male god? Idk, you could say this female mars is Bellona, the roman goddess of war...

o3o I really like this! Also a heads up, Qahira is not Arabic for Mars. Al-Mareekh or also written as Al-Merrikh is. "كوكب المريخ"

Pluto IS a planet! I don't care what NASA says, School House Rock and Miss Frizzle says Pluto is a planet and that's who I choose to believe.

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?

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.
