@cratercracker Do Space Engine representations of planets count? If not, I may try a cubist-like art design.

Many of my drawings are based on views found in Space Engine. I'm not sure if that's what you mean, though.

Do you mean just screenshots of the planets from SE?

(actually all the drawings are inspired by views in SE)

Yes.

Can you at least render or edit them in Photoshop or GIMP or something else?

Well I already have an idea for a fully GIMP-made rendering of the five-planet EPIC 220221272 System. I'll probably have it done sometime today.

Sounds good sir! You are good to go!

As a sidekick I would recommend taking screenshots of the planets in SE and then adding some informations via text about the atmosphere or just some numbers (mass, size and etc.)

I have a new idea for my EPIC 220221272 artwork, but first I need to create images for all five candidates and the host star. This has been taking me quite a lot longer than I thought. However, I have drawings of candidates 03 and 04 to show off:

And today we are trying to make it to space with the gravity turned up to 5gs.

Nice, a third drawing style to add to the collection!

Well....I got some bad news. Because of the way my image of EPIC 220221272.04 was made, I cannot successfully put in a black background without creating a white rim around the atmosphere, so I will have to redo that image. Bummer.

But there's some good news: More images! I finished EPIC 220221272.05, the fourth planet in order from the star and a potential "Super-Venus". There are two versions, one with an atmosphere and one with the entire surface visible. I also made a rather cruddy image of EPIC 212525618 b, or Iona, as a Water Giant like GJ 1214b. I will make a better one soon.
