The Sun is the driving force for life, at least in Our Solar System. There are two suns in Union, Yellow and Blue. My original concept was to have a Singularity between the two suns consuming mass from each. There are two dense objects that orbit around the Singularity which would be one object for each sun.

Took advantage of trying out a design as an insert on my motorcycle tank.
26 March 2018, First Sun Draft
Sat down and did a drawing of the Male Sun Concept. Combined the faces, sun and sun face all together. Used fine felt pen, ballpoint pen and then color pencil. Did loose lines for filler everywhere. I'll do the female with more time and geometrics lines. I could use more colors in felt-tips.

Filled in the rest of the page on the Yellow Sun.
31 March 2018, 2nd Sun Draft
Worked evenings last few days to completed the alternate Sun. Picked up more pens that I started using with the Yellow Sun. Took more time and tried using straight lines here and there as well as variations on the fills for the faces. Also did the whole page this time. Got the ink lines completed and filled in the areas with various colored pencil. Blended all areas.
Üwe commented that the Yellow sun was Female and the Blue one Male. I'll probably finish off the page on the Yellow Sun before starting the next drafts.
tempted to continue the faces outlines all the way around the circumference of the sun.
Definitely need to by blender pencils
by the boxes.
4 April 2018, 4th Sun Draft
Completed the 3rd draft of the Sun concepts. I did just the skull near the center of the page and did the circumference of the sun around it. Used faces profile outlines all along the circumference of the sun and did less on the dominate side (right side).
Filled in the faces with various lines using the Gelly Roll Ink Pens and continued with lines out to the edge of the sun flames. Some of the flame lines I filled in so they would be broad and bold. Also started to try out figures in the flame area.
Filled in the white spaces with color pencil and blended. Used blending pencils to fade the wax out to the edge of the flame area. Used pastels for the background, black on bottom and red with orange and maroon on top.
I like the blending from color pencil to red best. I like the style of the sun best of the three, so far, but I'd like to have a face versus a skull in the center fading into the profiles.
17 April 2018, 4th Sun Draft & Flame Spirits
Completed five 14”x17” drawings, four sun concepts and one “Flame idea between styles concepts 2 & 3, and made a few tribal images before the 4th draft for Flames Entities or Spirits.
