Alpha Scorpii by arisechicken117 Alpha Scorpii by arisechicken117
The binary system known as Alpha Scorpii, The Heart of the Scorpion. The red giant Antares is the brightest star in the constellation Scorpius. Antares B is a much smaller blue giant that is greatly dwarfed by Antares yet is still much larger then our own sun.

This cold and brisk giant lies far beyond the frost line, but still retains a beautiful view of these 2 wondrous suns.

You always make the shadow very thick on every size of planets. It kinda remind me of our second collab which u didn't like :D

The shadow is think because there is minimal light. Its more realistic. Take a look at a photo of any real planet or moon and you'll see that its shadow is just as thick.

I wouldn't say a thing about making the shadow very thick! but for big planets, their shadows always need more details and also u should make the shadow that it's rly effecting the planet and also u should concern about how much blur u apply on the shadow!
