James Mackin: Proxima B: Exominal Kingdom

Proxima B: Exominal Kingdom

James Mackin

4.2 light years away a planet orbits a star dwarfed by our own sun. Its never-ending day scorches the planet while it leaves the other side a frozen world without light. Between these light and dark hemispheres a twilight zone gives rise to alien organisms that have evolved similarly to the animals of earth.
Each organism draws inspiration from the most endangered animals of today. The 3D renders illustrate the potential life on Proxima B while echoing the precious life of Earth.
