I will provide all the source, sorry, i'm new to the open source and it's not so simple for me.
About the moon, it wasn't only brushes, one of the three was made using a photo that i've manipulated before.
I will provide their too (the brushes) cos they are totally open.
The trouble about my source it's they are really big, about 44,5 mb cos it's a .psd file and not a svg and i've got some difficult to share them.
But i will do my best to let other person work on m purpose.

Well I first wanted to let you know that it's hard for others to work 
with your artwork because you didn't provide sources or in lieu of that 
any instructions on how to reproduce it. If you want your theme to have 
a good shot at making it you should definitely make them available so 
more people can 'vote' on it.

I liked the first solar better than this iteration; the colors were more 
Fedora blue and I think it was a bit darker so I think a bit more 
functional for a wallpaper (if the wallpaper is too bright / busy / 
contrasting it is hard for folks to use) I do like how you put the 
visual focus towards the lower right of the wallpaper, since we line the 
icons up starting from the upper left this helps.

It looks like you may have used planet brushes to produce the white 
planets on the left? Can you make those available too? (are they
