SaturnA.jpg
Saturn382 views
MercuryB.jpg
Mercury and the Sun448 viewsNotice how small and densely packed the stars are -- it indicates how wide of an angle I had to set the field of view in order to see both the Sun and a substantial crescent of Mercury.
SaturnMoons6_Titan.jpg
Saturn and Titan261 views
Neptune_TritonA.jpg
Neptune: Triton663 viewsThis view of Triton's southern hemisphere shows the only parts of the surface that Voyager 2 was able to image at high resolution.
Earth-Africa.jpg
Earth: Africa393 views
JupiterMoons2_Io.jpg
Jupiter and Io375 views
Neptune.jpg
Neptune407 viewsNeptune showing the Great Dark Spot (which dissipated in the years after Voyager 2's encounter).
Earth-WesternHemisphere.jpg
Earth: Western Hemisphere386 views
SaturnC.jpg
Saturn263 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.
JupiterMoons3_Europa.jpg
Jupiter and Europa333 viewsNote the shadows cast by Europa and Io on Jupiter.
JupiterMoons1_Amalthea.jpg
Jupiter and Amalthea401 viewsThe irregular moon Amalthea orbiting above Jupiter.

Saturn397 viewsThe Sun shines through Saturn's rings.

SaturnMoons7a_Iapetus.jpg
Saturn and Iapetus269 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.

SaturnMoons7b_Iapetus.jpg
Saturn: Iapetus282 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".Aug 21, 2007
SaturnMoons7c_Iapetus.jpg
Saturn: Iapetus262 viewsCassini Regio on Iapetus. The equatorial ridge is visible against the moon's limb.Aug 21, 2007
SaturnMoons2_Enceladus.jpg
Saturn and Enceladus267 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.

EarthMoonA.jpg
Earth: The Moon273 viewsThis model has 50% diffuse falloff to simulate the familiar "flattened" look of the Moon.Aug 21, 2007
EarthMoonB.jpg
Earth and the Moon406 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 Earth293 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
