Planet around a 75 J mass Red Dwarf Star by ValentiniaK Planet around a 75 J mass Red Dwarf Star by ValentiniaK
To see the whole story of my art collection, please check out my Journal "My Science Fiction Story for my Art Collection." [link]

Concept of a frozen planet which orbits the one of the dimmest and youngest Red Dwarf stars, roughly 75 J masses. These Red Dwarves glow so feebly that even at this distance, or at least in the twilight belt you would still be quite cold.

despite their limited fuel, the dimmest Red Dwarf Stars can burn for over 12 Trillion Years vs our Suns 10-13 billion years (including red giant phase).

Because of the severe gravitational stresses on the planet it will be gravitationally locked.

Fortunately if you live on the eternal "noon" side of the planet, temperatures can be quite balmy. This planet is habitable, but no where as nice as planet Earth mainly because Red Dwarf stars flare up violently.

Because Red Dwarf stars are fully convectional and are much more magnetic. The youngest red dwarf stars because of their rapid acceleration can generate solar flares can be thousands of times as brilliant than our Sun's flare ups.
During the flare ups the red dwarf glows so brilliantly that it turns blue, this planet will also take a lot of the heat from the flare as atmospheric temperatures soar to the hundreds of degrees C while massive CMEs can heat up the atmosphere sometimes to 1000 C.

The cave formations portray thawing ice that is frozen shortly, sights on this planet are quite frequent.

Because of this almost all life lives under the oceans, in fact the only life on the surface are the human and humanoid travelers in protective clothing!

The planet orbits around this star in an elongated orbit, the gravitational stresses on this world per cubic feet of rock is several times that of IO of Jupiter which helps keep the core from freezing up and helps with a magnetosphere, more importantly helps keep volcanic activity at a constant to replenish the atmosphere. This fights some of the atmospheric loss.

(the Red Dwarf star is portrayed abnormally large in this picture because or the severely elongated orbit, this is the closest approach. Way inside the Habitable Zone, but it will not stay within this zone for more than 24 hours before being shot out past the Habitable Zone.) Future works will portray the planet in its different stages in this elongated orbit.

Age of Red Dwarf Star - 990 Million years. This Red Dwarf is a captured satellite of the Sunatta Star System. The rest of the star system is portrayed in my other works.
Photoshop painted 30-40 hrs.

RED DWARF STARS are still great candidates for life! But YOUNG Red Dwarves such as this one are questionable because young stars tend to flare up much more than older stars due to the fact that stars rotations eventually slow hence weaker magnetosphere.

very cool, I am so interested in space and science, and this concept is something that could possibly exist, it is very plausible. They have actually found similar planets orbiting smaller and cooler stars in the universe, and because the stars are cooler, it would be a frozen wasteland. So somewhere like this most definitly would exist somewhere.

Oh my glob, this is so magnificent! The roughness of this piece is so different from other extra-terrestrial planet landscapes, it's like a breath of fresh air. Or fresh ice air. xD [it kinda reminds me of a watercoloring]

The way you have done the ice makes it look sharp and brittle, I really like it!
About the life on this planet, how advanced it is? Does the underwater oceans have only very simple bacteria, or complicated plants and animals? Do they get their energy from chemosynthesis, as you said there is volcanic activity?

ValentiniaK Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2012  Student Digital Artist
thanks!

The life underwater is about as complex as the Arctic and antarctic oceans, its decently complex. They get energy from Chemo synthesis and Photosynthesis, you only need to be I think 5 meters below the sea to be safe from being burned from flare ups.

There are plans underway to build a worldhouse around the entire planet so the land masses can be terraformed and life can prosper. a "worldhouse" is the para-terraform concept in which you construct a transparent dome around the entire world, the dome could be supported by the planets atmosphere perhaps as well as mega-structures made out of carbon nano tubes. This new dome will protect the planet from the crazy flare ups.

The star i got rid of most of the "gray" noise. Looks better now.

after I am done exhausting most of the concepts that I have in mind I will probably do a tutorial on this. Well the ice and the red dwarf stars.

Beautiful @_@
so that's what a star looks like...
I always thought Timon and Pumbaa were the ones who had it right
"They're fireflies.. fireflies that got stuck up in that big, black thing..."
"I always thought they were big burning balls of gas floating billions of miles away"
"Pumbaa, to you, everything is gas" XD
wonderful piece though, mate.
