Solar system attempt

Attempted inner planets of solar system. Learning to play with shades and blending



The solar system looks great. Good job with all the stars. I can easily tell which one is Earth! One suggestion if you are trying to get your planets more round, if I may... tracing around something round in pencil to use as a reference is a technique I have found quite helpful.

Thanks for the tip. I wasn’t sure how to get perfectly round so I kinda winged it with the brush in a spinning motion. Venus got away from me a bit while blending the colors 😂

Well it's a fantastic first attempt at a solar system!
