Ahh I see, wish I looked more into  Star Wars I guess. It is a nice looking landscape, and buildings like seen in the Jettsons. The giant Saturn like planet is a nice effect to create magnetic tidal forces as seen in the result of what must have been this planets history. :)

I would assume this city is located on the moon (or one of the moons) of that planet.

Excellent work.:)

Thanks!! Yes, this city is located on one of the moons of the gas giant. :)

Seeing multiple cloud cities it remind me a bit of The Jetsons.
The angle of the planet on the background is... strange but very cool, compared with the moon that orbit the giant gas planet. (if it is a moon)

I really like it. Well done. :)

Thanks a lot! Yeah, the angle of the moons orbit is different than what we normally see. I'm not sure if a moon can even orbit a gas giant at an angle that would create the perspective in this image. I thought it looked cool and wanted to do something different. :D

I recall seeing a lot of amateur space art with vantage points like this, taken from moons above or below the ring plane of a gas giant, and thinking that it was not correct.  Sometimes we assume that all moons orbit in the same plane as the rings and/or equator of their parent planet.  But you know, it's not so, especially with gas giants.  They can capture rogue moons that wander in from outside the solar system, and theoretically from other planets that have thrown off their own moons.  Neptune's Triton is a good example.  Triton even revolves around Neptune in the opposite direction the other moons do.  And the majority of Jupiter's and Saturn's moons do not orbit along the equatorial/ring plane, although these moons were almost certainly captured asteroids or rogue rocks.  But it's possible that the moon shown in your image is almost planet sized and wandered into the ring planet's gravitational pull from way above the pole.

Thanks for the detailed explanation. It makes sense that gas giants can capture other moons which can lead to an unusual orbit. I never knew Neptune had a moon that orbited in the opposite direction than the other moons, that is really interesting. I'm going to read more about that.

Amazing work, man! :)
