Pluto – gravity waves

In my research I started reading about gravity waves, and saw a picture of a capillary wave (which is a type of gravity wave). Capillary waves are the little ripples we see in water, say when we throw a pebble into a calm lake. I like the idea of how Pluto’s surface and atmosphere are continuously undergoing changes, undulating with waves, sort of the embodiment of its destruction/regeneration astrological quality. I decided to make a rough interactive Pluto sketch where it’s surface/atmosphere could move like water. As the planet rotates you can use your mouse to make waves on the surface. You can download the app here to try out. The app was made with Cinder. Here are some pics:
