Ringworld: Nessus and Speaker-to-Animals907 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.

SaturnMoons7a_Iapetus.jpg
Saturn and Iapetus312 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.

The Moon and the Earth338 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
Saturn312 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.
