Humanoid Planets

Mary at Thoughts Up North drew anthropomorphized versions of nine planets -or eight planets and one planetoid, if you prefer- of our solar system.

I’ve always loved space and the planets. I’ve seen a few “human planets” sets done by other artists (I saw one in particular that inspired me to start this one but I lost the link) and most of them are pretty literal in the human department. I wanted to try making something more androgynous and godlike.

The colors are all based off the planets’ true colors, and the designs are a mix of the names’ mythos and Holst’s “The Planets” suite. They get progressively less human the further they are from the Sun, which I thought was fun. :) Enjoy!! Pluto included.

Shown here are Mercury, Venus, and Earth. See the rest at Thoughts Up North. -via Boing Boing
