Brown dwarf by JustV23 Brown dwarf by JustV23
It took me some time to set the stage for this scene.
First i was planning to paint picture of brown dwarf visible from one of its planets. But i figured since brown dwarfs emits very little if any light whatsoever, the scenery would be very dark.
So i decided to make it binary star system (Then other star could illuminate the surface of the planet). But to validate that scenery like this would be possible i had to find some info about binary star systems in which one of them is brown dwarf and another a regular star. 
Luckily there is some systems including a regular star and a brown dwarf companion. 
After that i did some research of how brown dwarf would look like to our eyes, read some info about planetary systems of these dwarfs and after some more thinking i finally started painting this picture.

So here it is! A brown dwarf - failed star dimly glows from inside over one of it's small planet's surface.
The more distant star illuminates scenery and saves a brown dwarfs system from drowning in eternal darkness...

Sometimes research itself can give you more ideas than pure imagination :)
Thanks!

Very nice, I like the color combination:  works very well together, even if it's not your standard palette.
