Very nice work Darin.
I looked at this and straight away thought, "either Terragen or GeoControl2/Vue"...
May I ask; what sort of postwork do you do in PS?
It looks like it's straight out of Vue.
Or is it just levels, colours, etc?
Keep up the great work - it's an inspiration for those like me who are just starting their space art travels....

Thank you very much. :) As far as postwork I did a levels adjustment, brightened the sun a bit, and painted the upper clouds. The planet was a separate Vue render using a custom texture, I added it in photoshop.

Hi,
Sorry for my delay in replying; I think I might have my notifications turned off - now I need to find where to turn it on.
Do you have any tutorials online showing how you have created some of your images?
I also use Vue and Photoshop but am only at the beginning of really learning image creation.
It's one thing to know how to use a program but something totally different knowing how to use it to create imagery of a standard that I am willing to show others.............
Cheers
Erwin

I don't have any tutorials, but there are a lot out there that I learned from. "Capturing the Brilliance of Light" by Quadspinner is a really good starting point. [link]

I have almost all of QS's tutorials and a fair amount of his content also.
What I am looking to learn is integration of GC2, Vue and Photoshop to create imagery; whether it be space-related, fantasy, palaeoart, whatever.
I am slowly getting there but when I see work such as yours [which is very much in the style that I am aiming for] - I have to ask.
I have your Apophysis tutorial, but that's been all I have been able to find.
Thanks for responding; all the best.
Erwin

Lovely planetary imagery again it is nice detailed and I did not know you could get textures and stuff like that from the NASA website that I just think is awesome. I think the fact their is multiple earths in this image, the one where this scene takes place and the other in the sky. It just makes me wonder what is the planet with life and which is the moon with life, all the same nice work. :) :thumbsup:
