Are artist illustrations of planets accurate?

Yes, just like this artist illustration I made of my car.

Nope. They're pure guesswork based on a bare minimum of data. For exoplanets, we know their orbits (roughly) and either how big they are or how massive they are (but usually not both.)

For the vast majority of exoplanets, that's literally all we know.

how accurate?
define accurate?
does it have to be perfect to be completely accurate?
