Jupiter by GoldeenHerself Jupiter by GoldeenHerself
The Shire draft horse represents Jupiter, first and largest of the gas giants, and the largest planet in our solar system. It is named for the king of the Roman gods, the god of sky and thunder: the Roman personification of the Greek Olympian god Zeus. The astronomical symbol for the planet Jupiter rests in the upper-left corner, while the wave pattern border echoes the swirling colored bands of storm systems that encircle the planet 
Not pictured: the Shetland Pony moons, Io, Europa, Ganymede and Callisto.

This is to be the first in a series of four mixed media illustrations featuring the four gas giant planets, as represented by various breeds of horses.

Coming next: Saturn as represented by an Andalusian.

Mixed media: watercolor and ink, colored pencil, gold paint pen on vellum bristol board. Art and related prose myself.

Thank you! I honestly wasn't sure at first if it would turn out at all good… but I'd only got as far as coloring the head and I was like… oh, this is gonna be good. Better plan on doing the others…
