I am back, with some more science! Well..."science". I am not an expert by any means, I just love the stars. And mythology. I am always glad to put the two together!

The Andromeda constellation has been part of our collection western consciousness for-practically-ever. It was one of the original 48 constellations laid out by Ptolemy way back in the second century. It is a huge constellation: the 19th largest in the sky. Most notably, it contains an actual separate galaxy...which is pretty neat. Though in a billion years or so, we will become one...unless the Doctor drops by for a visit.
Andromeda also called "The Chained Woman". The tl;dr is that her mother, Cassiopeia, ran her mouth about how Andromeda was hotter than the Nereids. This made Poseidon mad, so he burninated the whole damned country with a sea monster and had Andromeda tied to a rock and eaten. Thankfully Perseus dropped by and saved the day.
|with some lines to make things easier.|
I think this one is pretty, though I didn't do quite as good a job on the constellation line-up. I didn't take into account how poorly I am able to line up my fingers when posing. Ah well, first world problems...
I think this might be my favorite and least favorite all at once. I think the final result is beautiful, and definitely good enough to stand without knowing the inspiration behind it...but I think that my constellation got a little wonky. It was such a simple one, too. Oh well. I still love it.
See, science-lite can be fun and shiny! How about learning some more things?
I love the colours in this, they look so good together :)ReplyDelete
those vapids, man.Delete
These are SO pretty! I ADORE the colors together. The whole look is so dimensional... my galaxy manicures never have this level of depth and realism! (P.S. not gonna lie, your interpretation of the story of Andromeda and Perseus completely made my day.)ReplyDelete
haha I am glad that someone other than me enjoys my goofy-ness.Delete
This is gorgeous! Loving this series!ReplyDelete
I wouldn't have known this was a planet mani but the end result is beautiful regardless.ReplyDelete

This is amazing. Probably one of the best series I've seen on a blog!ReplyDelete
I think these WIN!! I tried to do a constellation mani and the holo drowned it out. I didn't mind, though, because Holo. But these? They turned out fantastically :DReplyDelete
