MythMod: Uranus and Neptune Picture

Been a while, hasn't it? Blame a combination of working on RealVG [link] and maybe a little dismay that the mannequin and the French Curves didn't really help out than much. Still, I had to do something to get my brain back in gear, and this is it. Yep, I know they aren't shaded: for some reason I felt that this flat, outlined approach worked for them. I realise I re-used Femme Fatale No. 2 for Neptune, but Uranus is new at least.

So, Uranus and Neptune - or at least my interpretation via my Mythology Modernised series. Twin goddesses of ice, mind and mystery and essentially one soul in two bodies (Interpret the fact that they're two naked chicks touching each other all you like, they're just very close). Uranus on the left is a little greener: Neptune a little bluer.

It's actually trickier to have fun with their characterisation in the sense that the two planets are still relatively unknown and they got discovered and named in the eighteenth and nineteenth century, so I can't play about with Greek and Roman errors as much as with, say, Venus and Mars. But I'll have a shot.

The two planets are very similar, but there are a few differences: Neptune has wilder winds, has a slightly larger mass and has the interesting distinction of fission reactions occurring in its core (Jupiter also has these). Uranus has a slightly larger diameter and, interestingly, spins on its side. So Neptune can be thought of as a bit more forceful and perhaps a little protective of her twin, while Uranus is gentler and subtler. Does Neptune dominate Uranus, or can Uranus wrap Neptune round her little finger? It's a fairly moot point, as they think and act as one.

In the struggle for planetary dominance, Uranus and Neptune's agendas remain fairly hidden compared with their fellows, and their double powers make the others wary. They are useful allies and challenging enemies, but you can never say which they are at any given moment.
