So, he is still alive..... Yup i'm still alive :) Finding it hard to get inspiration lately and got a lot on my hands. So art suffers from that. But... then a journal came along and spoke of unknown moons and a contest. That gave me enough inspiration to do at least one piece. It may not be my best work but i did have a lot of fun doing this.

So it's basicly built around a TG2 render of the moon wich took about 10 hours to complete. Then with photoshop i added some cracks in the surface, a little impact and some small other things. The nebula is pure photoshop with a little bit of brushwork.

I asked several people about their opinions and i want to thank them for their support!!

Altho i could probably add more stuff or change some things i think it's pretty good balanced and at a certain stage i just did more harm then good to it. So i decided to give it a rest and i'm actually quite happy with it.

So here it is, my entry for the Unknown Moons contest. Enjoy!! ;)

EDIT: a DD and so many wonderfull reactions. I want to thank you all for this. It is really appreciated!!

It is absolutely gorgeous - not too busy, but enough going on to realize our universe is full of activity if we were privy to see it.
Sorry to hear your inspiration has suffered recently ... time to crack open a good sci-fi novel maybe, or something ... :)
