51 Pegasi by arisechicken117 51 Pegasi by arisechicken117
So this is my rendition of the star known as "51 Pegasi." This star, being relatively similar to our sun, lies just 50.9 light years away in the constellation of Pegasus- A short distance in the overall span of the universe. The first exoplanet around it was discovered in 1995. To this day, 51 Pegasi lies on the waiting list to hopefully uncover a possible habitable planet around this eerily similar star.

Enjoy! :D

Simply breathe taking, this is a very powerful picture. Sometimes having such an intense light source can really draw away from the rest of the picture, but this is not the case in 51 Pegasi. A really intense emotion can be felt just by glancing at this picture.

The composition is great, It's balanced out by the intensely bright star, and smaller planet, with the little bit of breathing room on the right side, against the asteroids and large planet on the left and bottom left side of the picture. The flow the asteroids create through across the picture really lead the viewers eyes across the entire picture, and gets the viewer through the bright star without much difficulty at all.

The lighting is what really makes this piece exceptional. You achieve the realism of this picture by keeping the light source consistent throughout the entire picture. You used just enough reflection of light against the planets to make it feel real and help create a realistic three dimensional effect on the asteroids and planets alike.

Excellent choice on texture, again your choice in texture on the planets and space give the picture an extra realistic effect, as if this is an actual photograph of what is going on.

One thing to consider perhaps would be to space out the planet, star, and planet again a little more. The picture feels a little cluttered in the center, and generally centered subjects lose their appeal a little bit. See what happens when you move the star and smaller planet to the right a little bit and space them out some.

In the end I love the emotion and power felt when looking at this piece. Your work on planets and space is fantastic and this is at all no exception. Keep up the great work.

I could criticise the inclusion of a moon, which probably isn't accurate, but it's just too awesome for me to care.

Great job, i love the radiating heat coming from the star.
Also the nebula? on the right hand side is very detailed, really makes the image stand out.
Keep it up :D

Whoa thats hot! B-) I love the color scheme, works very well. So maybe thats Bellerophon in the background, and this is the undiscovered habitable planet up close? well maybe not habitable to us HUMANS ;) but who knows

Hey did you know you can help out NASA find planets? check this out :D [link] It's kind of a boring process, but the idea and the science behind it is pretty awesome!

Yea but what are the chances a normal person like me could find one? Finding a planet is like trying to see a candle in a city above earth

Actually they're not bad at all! I mean, you really can't get much in the way of confirmation that it IS a planet, but my friends have found possible planets already (haven't found any myself, but i've only been on twice so far)

Hmmm, well.
i like it :D alot, i think the lighting is brilliant, the soft lens flare/light on the close up planet really ties the image together, also the bright light peering over the asteroids gives you a great perspective on the distance.

Very beautiful work, every way! I like the surface texture of the planet, it looks very realistic. I also like that you introduce some facts along your artwork. I remember watching a documentary concerning this discovery some time ago.

Realism is also what I try achieve. My exoplanet paintings just are views on surface, I've got a little different approach. I hope I'm some day talented enough to paint very realistic looking extrasolar scenes:). Anyway, I think I'll add some fact-based info along some of my artworks too in future. Thanks for the idea:)!
