Aldebaran by GuilleBot Aldebaran by GuilleBot
Aldebaran is a red giant star located about 65 light years away in the zodiac constellation of Taurus. With an average apparent magnitude of 0.87 it is the brightest star in the constellation and is one of the brightest stars in the nighttime sky.
This easily seen and striking star in its suggestive asterism is a popular subject for ancient and modern myths.

the slight illustration style touch, does make it look beautiful, truly photo-realism would look worst.

Also love the wide range of colors.

Very well done, but I think the composition is all over the place.
