My first post... yay

I decided to enter this comp for something to do over the holidays, probly wont start modelling untill after exams but I've came up with my idea:

The planet Proxima was discovered by the Kepler telescope in 2009. The planet is in close geo-synchronous orbit to the red dwarf star Proxima Centauri. Proxima Centauri is a flare star that experiences enormous eruptions on its surface and emits huge amounts of radiation. Astronomers, surprised that Proxima existed at all, claimed there was no chance of life in such a temperamental solar system.

In 2026 the first high resolution picture of Proxima was taken by the Terrestrial Planet Finder. Everyone was astounded by what they saw. Not only was there life on Proxima, it was evacuating the planetů

I dont really like this sketch but I thought Id post it anyway

That weird lookin thing is supposed to be a space station thingy and I forgot to draw any evacuating ships

I think I'll stick to 3d and do a 3d sketch instead

I've gone with a whole new look, I think its a bit of an improvement to my first sketch

This is a nice concept , is there going to be a connection to earth with this proxima centauri other than just that it changes attitude here on earth. Is there something us earthlings can do about it (help them.) There are so many ideas in this contest. Good job so far.

I havent really thought about any connection between earth and proxima yet, maybe they've decided that Earth looks like a more hospitable place and are coming to pay us a visit
