A quicky image that was originally going to be mostly 2D, but ended up mainly 3D with some 2d postprocessing and a few paint touchups. Rendered in Brazil, post processing in Photoshop. This was mainly an exercise in thick atmosphere and backlit silhouettes. Version B (seen here) is the same as version A, except it has a slightly different spacecraft design.
very, very impressive
Good Work .. ..
nice 'grand scale' image
Thanks Nicksketch, grand scale is one of my goals, so I'm glad to hear when I achieve it
Wow this looks grand. Nice job.
