Planet Ouranos

This is not at all meant to be astronomically correct. It is my impression of the planet Uranus, whose name is constantly derided but is really "Ouranos," a Greek word meaning "sky" or "heavens." I'm using layers of textures as I have been experimenting lately. The curved yellow streak is a ring around Ouranos composed of ice, pebbles, and planetary building debris. There are also bunches of asteroids and space rocks floating about. Remember, it's "Ouranos" and this is not meant to be astronomically or politically correct.
