Death and the Hearth.  Pencil, photoshop.
There’s a open ballot to vote for the names of Pluto’s two unnamed moons and let-me-say-right-now, I am a huge supporter of one of them being named Persephone.  (Well it should technically be Prosperpina/Prosperpine if you’re going for the Roman names but I digress.)  The whole thing’s made me think a bunch about my own Hades and Persephone analogues; Dhio being an irritable creepy god of what people (mistakenly) assume is death and Kaia being an even-temepered goddess of the hearth and domesticated animals.
Anyway what I’m getting at is that, despite its being in first place, Vulcan really isn’t an appropriate name for a frozen moon of a dwarf planet.

    Beautiful drawing!! And I like the thought process behind the drawing—I agree 100%. Why name a frozen moon Vulcan? Makes...
