Painting through the Universe: Mars

Despite how it may appear, I have not given up on Painting through the Universe! In fact, I have a new addition today. I have to admit, I felt quite a bit of pressure painting the Red Planet, but I think working my way through the panic phase of "Oh my gosh I've screwed it all up!" was worth it.

Unable to pass up on the fluffy-eared parasite idea, I grabbed my nearest sketchbook and brush and this happened:

Fluffy-eared koala parasites. I think they want a hug?

Honestly not sure whether to say you're welcome or I'm sorry. I'll let you decide.
