View from a moon...Something I made few days ago..
The gas giant in the background is from [link] so thanks goes to Matthew for sharing those!
Edit: changed colours, higher resolution etc..
In the shadow of a giant by ~freelancah
If one of Jupiter's moons would be colonizable one day, we probably would have a view like this all day and night. I could live with that.. In fact, I'd love to live with that! (
There is nothing I can say about this piece that hasn't already been said, I'm afraid. This view is stunning, imposing, and fantastic. To imagine the distance a moon must be from its planet, and to still have that host taking the whole of the sky up with its image. I must say I find this piece hauntingly beautiful.
I can't remember whether I commented on this when I first added it to my favourites, but I love the feel of this. There's something ominous about the looming form of the gas giant. It's quite unusual and interesting.
This is amazing. I've been dabbling with Corel Painter X but I still don't know how to do anything amazing as this. Is there a specific program you recommend? Is this an entirely different method rather than just painting with a tablet? I'm still kind of new to all this.
Well as most of my work this was also mostly made with a 3D app. In this case the terrain was rendered in terragen2 and the planet in the horizon was a texture applied to a surface with some photoshop postwork.
