I was motivated today to paint something different from my usual work.
I love astronomy and I think that the universe is the ultimate artist - it is an incredible source of inspiration to me. I am so fascinated with the cosmos and all the possibilities of finding other earth-like worlds - even in our own Milkyway galaxy.
I decided to create my own planet, which I've made to look somewhat similar to our world but incapable of supporting life from earth. This planet would be 3-times the mass of Earth and is surrounded by rings of diamond-rich asteroids. The 4 moons create enormous tides in its seas of liquid argon. The argon atmosphere ignites with light caused by surges of radiation of a nearby pulsar. If this planet could support any form of life, they'd likely be very flat and luminescent from the electrified atmosphere.
I'm planning on painting a landscape based off of this planet soon!
About a few hours of work done in Photoshop.
Thanks for looking and for your visit! :)
