Uranus by JoeyJazz Uranus by JoeyJazz
Info by Greg Martin:

An oddity among the planets, Uranus's axis is
tilted 90 degrees in respect to the ecliptic. This
means that it "rolls" around its orbit, its slender
ring system and moons appearing to rotate
around the planet like the hands of a clock.


My second piece for ETP (first was Pluto /to be included/) - it looks simple but there is a lot of adjustments and changes throughout the development that is hidden from the observer's eye.

Criticism, advices and feedback were given by *sirgerg, =Baro and ^gucken - thanks guys!

If you want to download a wallpaper version (yeah, even for this vertical one) - visit our ETP site [link]

Enjoy

Uranus my home planet and the best planet in the entire universe! Did you know that Uranus is also a gas planet. How ironic that a gas planet is named Uranus.

The nice clean surface of Uranus--symbolizes the unconditional pride of being who we are!

I just hope that this amazing piece of artwork doesn't suffer from being the "butt" of any jokes. :rolleyes:

Keep up the great work!

The simplicity of this piece really does justice to our seventh planet (oh, the lengths I go to avoid saying "uranus"). Anyway, given it's relative blandness, finding creative ways to present this planet is proving a challenge, and I think this piece is spot-on.
