Excellent and accurate painting of Pluto from Charon. The variety of colors over the surface of Pluto are well represented.

This is beautiful, it looks like it was drawn for one of my stories.

I really like the use of colors in this. Great job!

The planet is rendered particularly well. There is a lot of visual variety both color and surface wise, and the planet has a three dimensional look to it thanks to the subtle play between light and shadow - it looks very convincing. Very well done.

It has been theorized that Pluto may look somewhat like Neptune's Moon, Triton and may be covered with multi colored deposits from cryo volcanoes on its surface.

You've done well to put the color on Pluto and the tree stump like ic hummocks on Charon are a nice, eerie touch!!!

Thank, Nick. I thought I'd better get the most out of this painting before New Horizons cruises by and makes it necessary to do a new one.

I think that's the nicest Pluto I have seen in a very long time - the use of such a range of colour is very unusual, but for me it really works!
