First time painting a planet

After watching those amazing spray paint videos of people painting planets I decided to give it a shot, only problem is I didn't have the right materials. So the paper, rather then smooth paper is highly textured canvas, the planet is acrylic paint, I used black and white spray paint, and white acrylic for the stars, and a little bit of black charcoal and black acrylic paint.


Next time I want to make the planet a brighter and more contrasty and maybe add more color to the background. I like it for my first try though :)
sorry for the glare from my flash

It's awesome :D A classmate of mine from a few years ago recently made this space painting with only spray paint, it's so amazing XD She uses foam core poster board as the paper so it smears easily. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uARTm...ure=plpp_video

In California it's the law hat all spray paint must be locked up, not sure about other states. It sucks that's it's kinda expensive though.....

That's a pretty impressive first attempt. I would love to be able to paint but I have zero talent in that area :(

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.
