Yeah, that confused me, too. What bothers me the most, though, is that Mars seems as big as Earth. Sure, it can't be to scale, but Mars is actually much closer in size to Mercury than Earth or Venus. Still a great shirt!

the size of venus and mars have been switched if venus is the one with the bow on the lower left. venus is closer to earth's size but mars is nowhere near the size of earth. also, why is she blue?

also, why is uranus not depicted as a diety as well? he was the sky. even just laurel on him would have worked.

pluto could have had a pitch fork or something to signify which one it is since it was included anyway.

That has been addressed earlier. The size and color of Venus has also been mentioned. Reading is fun

More specifically, Uranus was created by Gaia (Earth), so is technically her child, but he didn't have a father so not really in the traditional way. Uranus had many children with her, the most important of the lot being the original titans (including Kronos/Chronos/Saturn). He didn't want them to take over, so cast them down. Gaia got sick of it, armed the boys, and let them take out dad by murdering and castrating him. ...the hippy nature of Gaia is weird, considering all this.

I love mythology terribly, but I'm having a hard time getting over the weird old man Uranus. He'd more accurately be portrayed with some laurels or sky-type characterization...or hell, just with little Xs in his eyes, seeing as he's dead and all.

The exclusion of Pluto actually works pretty well, since Hades was secluded from the others due to the nature of his job and all. He should have some more detailing to show him as his mythological counterpart though.


Edit: Crits aside, I do think this is a wonderful design. I'm just so crazy over Greco-Roman mythology that I might dwell to much on the crits. Sorry. Great work overall!

Thanks, I couldn't remember where I had seen the Family Portrait tee. I especially like the dialogue, or rather, monologue from the "photographer."
