Earth-Australia.jpg
Earth: Australia410 views
Venus_noatmC.jpg
Venus with its atmosphere removed337 viewsViewed over Beta Regio.
Neptune_TritonA.jpg
Neptune: Triton634 viewsThis view of Triton's southern hemisphere shows the only parts of the surface that Voyager 2 was able to image at high resolution.
SaturnMoons6_Titan.jpg
Saturn and Titan241 views
EarthMoonA.jpg
Earth: The Moon254 viewsThis model has 50% diffuse falloff to simulate the familiar "flattened" look of the Moon.
Earth-Asia.jpg
Earth: Asia312 views
SaturnMoons1_Mimas.jpg
Saturn and Mimas272 viewsMimas, Saturn's innermost major moon. This view shows the giant crater Herschel, and the smaller crater Arthur is also prominent at the lower left of the moon. The model was textured with a displacement map.
UranusMoons4_Titania.jpg
Uranus: Titania310 views
SaturnMoons7b_Iapetus.jpg
Saturn: Iapetus261 viewsThe boundary between eastern Cassini Regio (the dark brown region) and Roncevaux Terra (the white region), including the chain of three large craters unofficially called "the Snowman".
Ringworld.jpg
Ringworld: Nessus and Speaker-to-Animals786 viewsThis is my 1st place winning entry in the March 2007 Hairy image contest, with color and lighting corrected in Photoshop. A scene from Larry Niven's novel Ringworld depicting Nessus and Speaker-to-Animals aboard the Lying Bastard, with the Ringworld in the background.
SaturnB.jpg
Saturn444 viewsA view looking down on Saturn's north pole, showing the "hexagon" cloud formation.

SaturnMoons7a_Iapetus.jpg
Saturn and Iapetus249 viewsThe hemisphere of Iapetus that faces away from Saturn has had only low-res imaging coverage so far, but this will change when Cassini takes better images in September 2007. I created the surface texture and the famous equatorial ridge using a displacement map, which is mostly ficticious.

Saturn: Iapetus241 viewsCassini Regio on Iapetus. The equatorial ridge is visible against the moon's limb.Aug 21, 2007
SaturnMoons2_Enceladus.jpg
Saturn and Enceladus249 viewsI created the plume of water vapor from Enceladus' south pole geysers using MacroPhoto, the same way I did with the volcanic plumes on Io.

EarthMoonB.jpg
Earth and the Moon369 viewsThe Earth with the Moon barely visible in the background. The wide-angle camera makes the Moon look small.Aug 21, 2007
EarthMoonC.jpg
The Moon and the Earth272 viewsThe Earth rising beyond the Moon. An angle similar to the opening shot of 2001: A Space Odyssey. The lights of North and South America are faintly visible on the nightside of the Earth.Aug 21, 2007
SaturnC.jpg
Saturn243 viewsSaturn in northern hemisphere winter. As observed by the Cassini probe, both the planet's axial tilt and the shadow of the rings create lower temperatures at high latitudes, and Rayleigh scattering from ice crystals in the atmosphere causes the clouds to turn blue. This was modeled by applying a projection map containing both a normal Saturn texture and one that was colorized blue in Photoshop. A gradient driven by a smartskin transitions from one map to the other.
