Neutron stars can spin at a rate of 600 rotations per second..and other space tidbits

Hi!

I’m trying to illustrate some space facts, one that found for the class and then remembered an idle project. It was a practice android app that would generate random facts. I was meaning to illustrate it but completely forgot all about it. Now with the help of the class it’ll get it done sooner than expected :)

Facts :
Neutron stars can spin at a rate of 600 rotations per second.

Updated concept:

This is my main fact to illustrate :) I'll be doing the linework tonight. I'm having fun with the expressions, specially the little star below.

Trying to tinker around with the cropping as suggested by Katie. I think it looks better this way, though something is still off...maybe the surprised star. Love him too much to get rid of him :( Also noted how much more digital it ended up after deciding to delete the lines / redoing them digitally..Experimenting! The others definitely going with the class approach.

A bit of texture and moved the little star .. :)
