Well, I'll be...

It appears that the artist's conception in my previous post IS accurate after all.

I'm not sure why, but it still seems out of whack to my eye. Maybe it is because the representation of our Sun is little more than a point that causes the discordance between what is, and what is perceived. In the original the Sun is 3 pixels across, and in my mock-up (reduced here for space) the massive star is nearly 600 pixels across. All apologies to the artist.
