Sirius B by ApoXile Sirius B by ApoXile
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]

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!

:+fav:
...And new, epic wallpaper! :D
