I can't believe Heliosphere is already a year old!
Honestly, I didn't think my project would get this far! Since it's an original one, I didn't think that it would nearly get as much feedback as some of my other fanart. But this project is fun, and I'm so happy with the amount of support it's getting! Including the fanart and help with ideas, gosh you have no idea how much I appreciate that! Whenever I receive some sweet fanart I die a little inside because it's a death by giggles and squeals!
And it's thanks to your help that the Uranian moons are FINALLY UP! So, here are the updates to the site! I hope you guys like it!Heliosphere Tumblr site updates:
THE URANIAN MOONS FINALLY ARE UP!heliosphere-underthesky.tumblr…
That said, the (major) moon info of the planets is now complete!heliosphere-underthesky.tumblr…
New theme songs are up and are continually updated! And as for the Uranian moons, their main theme song is FREEDOM DiVE↓.
Find the theme song of your favourite character!
Visitor and hit counter is now up, plus a scrolling text on your browser tab! We hope you have fun on your galaxy tour as a visiting comet!
BONUS! Even if I'm a camera-shy
bunny, here's the test cosplay makeup of Eris. I may take this down in a day or two or til the next update (?) because I'm reaaaaally
camera shy, especially if it's not a full-blown cosplay yet!

So... do I look like Eris enough? Hehe. That on my shoulder there is Dysnomia, her only known moon thus far! Selfies are mirrored and so our hair parted differently.
Another bonus, I may answer questions about Heliosphere that you want to know about! Although, I may have to ask you to ask another question if I think the question is too spoilery. But anyways, feel free to ask about the characters!
This journal will now be for periodic Heliosphere updates!
The "master list" journal regarding the height differences will be updated someday; I just don't want to lose the journal skin I used for it once updated!
Height changes made in the Heliosphere blog! (*may still be subject to change)heliosphere-underthesky.tumblr…
"Dwarf planets" category changed into "Dwarf planets and asteroids"!heliosphere-underthesky.tumblr…
"Stars and exoplanets" category added!heliosphere-underthesky.tumblr…
May add more theme songs for both groups and characters! (in the playlist and as audio posts)
*Group as in character groups like the Asteroid Belt, Kuiper Belt, black holes, etc.
*New theme songs added:
- Vesta (asteroid)
- Rhea (Saturnian moon)
- Nix (Plutonian moon)
- Hydra (Plutonian moon)
- Ice Brothers (Yuri/Kai aka Uranus/Neptune)
- Sirius A (star)
- Sirius B (white dwarf star)
- Cygnus X-1 (black hole)
- HDE 226868 (aka Kari, companion star of Cygnus X-1)
3/5 Uranian moons.
2/3 Polaris stars.
Thanks for all the support on my project, everyone!
I haven't been able to update about Heliosphere in a while, and the anniversary is soon! I really have no idea how to celebrate it, but maybe I'll draw a little something!
So as an update, I'm letting out a teaser sketch for one of Uranus' moons. Can you guess who he is?HINT: There's actually something on his clothes that may give off a slight hint who he is. Another real hint, he's one of the major moons of Uranus!
I'll still design four more to go, and then I'll update in my Heliosphere blog riiight here!
And another update, I think I'll change the characters' heights; the moons barely have any height differences and most of them are stuck to being 4'10" or below... I think I'd make Mei (Pluto) and Hermesio (Mercury) a little taller, but not too tall! They will still be chibi.
Mei may be 5'0"
Hermesio may still be 5'2", it depends! I'll still think about the moons' height differences. He and Luna may have the same height.
The moons are either going to stay smaller than Mei and the others, or like stars, I won't be too dependent on the height differences and I'll depend more on RANK differences. Like some stars that are MUCH BIGGER than Helios are almost the same height as him, but have a higher star rank in their universe.
And here are some new things about it you may be interested in!
This idea is not finalised yet, but I claim it as my own!
- Planets/space gijinka with normal orbits and rotation (counter clockwise) are right-handed, which may be pretty much almost everybody.
- Those with retrograde rotation are left-handed. Among the few of who I can think of are Venus, Yuri (possibly), and Triton.
- Stars are ambidextrous by default, and that means Helios and the rest of the stars.
As for the setting, this is what I've come up with so far:
- star system (like solar system) = home
- galaxy = country
- constellation = alliance, depending on location
- Universe = the whole world of everything
Well that's about it for now, but of course these are still subject to change though yes I claim these ideas. More updates someday!
