I love this concept of visualizing the imagery of planets being like marbles to the Gods. 7 ; )

I picked this one from your list to read first because of the intriguing title. I was curious what you had done with that topic :)

Thank you! I just had this image pop straight into my head over what the stars and planets in this vast universe might look like viewed from "outside" and this was the result!!

Thank you for the kind comments. This was originally written for (and inspired by the photos on) the "Gravity" competition, but in the end I felt it had less to do with Gravity and more to do with the universe as a whole, hence the re-name. Glad you liked it...
