Beyond the Frontier II - Centre of Power ends in a couple of hours, so it's time to finally finish work!

I proudly present you "Sirius B", my submission to the contest.

This was quite hard to achieve, because it's actually the first time I seriously tried to do some space related stuff.

Credits: "The last Supernova Tutorial" by =keepwalking07.

Inspirations from: :iconjoejesus: :iconkeepwalking07: :iconmark-s: :iconr3v4n: :iconbaro: :wave:


With a mass nearly equal to the Sun's, Sirius B is one of the more massive white dwarfs known (0.98 solar mass.); it is almost double the 0.5–0.6 solar mass average. Yet that same mass is packed into a volume roughly equal to the Earth. The current surface temperature is 25,200 K. However, since there is no internal source of energy generation, Sirius B will steadily cool as the remaining heat is radiated into space over a period of more than two trillion years. [wiki]


Technical Details:

:bulletred: native resolution: 4000x2000 300dpi
:bulletred: program used: Photoshop CS4 only
:bulletred: time: at least 20 hours B-)


now listening to: Joe Satriani - Is There Love in Space

Comments & Criticism are very appreciated! :)

edit: text alignment fixed...
and for anyone wondering: as i promised this is the overhauled version of the piece i uploaded a week ago. i deleted the asteroids and mainly worked on the background.

I hope you don't mind, I used your image on my blog, We Are Star Stuff. It was such a powerful image.

Ladies and gentlemen, proof that wizards become stars when they choose not to be ghosts.

Also, if you ever finish Sirius A, here are some important colours you must use:
Sirus A is covered with white fire and also it has a little bit of blue. Also, some of the flames it makes ends with Gold Fire (Or Something like Gold).
I really hope you finish it. Trust me, if I had the drawing skills you have I would do it, but not all people are special like you.

Can You Please Do that, if You Can...
Make a Drawing of Sirius A. Sirius B is Blue. Sirius A is White and Brighter!
Please, Do that if You Can. + You will be the first in the Internet to create a Drawing of Sirius A, this beautiful! If you make it, please inform me. I want to use it as WallPaper in my Desktop, and make a Poster for my room.

Really amazing work, one of the best I've ever seen! I look on it and I feel its heat... Tempestuous surface with those fiery eruptions totally blows my eyes into the space enchanted by bright rays of energy... And background is great too - with millions of stars shining quite faintly(but I get shivers when thinking that they can be even hotter than this one!) compared to such powerful fusion reactor...
In fact - brilliant!

...And new, epic wallpaper! :D
