Arcturus by fallenZeraphine Arcturus by fallenZeraphine
Arcturus :

"Space is big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mindbogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it's a long way down the road to the drug store, but that's just peanuts to space." - Douglas Adams

Created with Photoshop CS5

An amazing piece of art. Are these very difficult to make? (I also enjoyed your 'Twilight' and 'Slumber').

You get a favorite for the artwork and a 'joy' for quoting Douglas Adams :D

Thank you very much, there are a lot of tutorials on how to make planets with Photoshop, also starfields and such, it will be hard at first but with practice it gets easier. I love work by Douglas Adams, :)

here's a link for you to start your space art journey :

Nicely done & congrats on the DD,
but I agree with a few other comments that there are a few inconsistancies from a scientific perspective...
not the least of which is to the best of human knowledge to present, Acrturus is a star not a planet.

While the light flare & shadow of that moon/planetoid LOOK really cool, it's not quite logical.
To see that would require a very large field of particulates.
There would need to be a inner zone of constant collisions there to perpetually replenish the level of "dust" or it wouldn't last long... Especially not in the orbital paths of a planets and moons....
Add to that Arcturus is the fourth brightest star we can see from earth; It's solar "wind" would have swept most of the dust and finer particulates out of that system long ago...

Thanks for your comment, I was actually not Referring to Arcturus the Star, This is what I chose to name the whole piece, it was a name popped to my mind after looking at it when I was done with it (I know Arcturus is a Star), Don't think about it in such Scientific detail (although I love it my self), I had no scientific accuracy in my mind when doing this, I just wanted it have a sense of scale, in a nutshell I took my artistic license and went mad with it :)
