Mercurius

Mercurius” or Mercury
The smallest major planet.
Mercury is closest to the sun, has no atmosphere, and no moons. Due to its cooling iron core, it continues to shrink in size.
When the earth laps Mercury in orbit, it appears to orbit in reverse; an optical illusion known as Retrograde.
When Mercury is in Retrograde, it’s said that its power is reduced, which some people contribute to bad luck. .

The second in my Solar System series! Very excited to see how the whole thing ends up working together. I've realized I naturally gravitate (pun intended) toward producing work in a series because it allows me to work off a theme and play with different variations. This project is about having fun, playing off basic scientific research, and my current inspiration-space!

Final version- very happy with the result!
