I was feeling restless tonight, and had a sudden burst of creative energy with which I created this. The model is the same one that I used for "Among the Moons
". It was modelled in 3ds max 2011, UV mapped with Roadkill 1.1 and Maya 2011, textured with Zbrush 4, Darktree 2.51, and Photoshop CS3, and lit and rendered with Maya 2011 and mental ray. The background planet was also rendered with Maya 2011 and mental ray, with textures modified from a NASA map of the Jovian moon Callisto. The nebula was painted in Photoshop, using a starfield stock
by the talented freelancah
, and cloud photography stock
. Additional whisps were generated with Apophysis 2.09.This image is not in the public domain, and may not be used for any purpose whatsoever without the express permission of the copyright holder.
