Jupiter Comparison

Jupiter - November 12, 2011

Jupiter is the fifth planet from the Sun and the largest planet within
the Solar System. It is a gas giant with mass one-thousandth that of
the Sun but is two and a half times the mass of all the other planets
in our Solar System combined. Jupiter is classified as a gas giant
along with Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. This is my second sketch of
Jupiter and in my opinion version 2 is much better ;). I draw this
picture using graphite pencil on white sheet of paper but I inverted
it Gimp, added colors, halo etc. Because of that modifications I think
this sketch can be determinate as digital picture too. In the bottom
left corner of sketch I added real astrophoto of Jupiter to compare it
with my sketch ,visual observation.
