Thank you.

I do suggest taking a look at my most recent image...which is when I try to paint a small spot in Tennessee...

Nice job, this must have taken so much patience to do ^^

Why do I imagine this image being on the view screens of the ships when the colonists first came to Pern? I don't know, but it kind of fits it in my opinion.

Btw, this is my new wallpaper. :D It looks awesome.

It wasn't supposed to include them. Besides, do you know how long it would have taken me to model them?

No, I don't know how long it would have taken, but I guess - VERY LONG. ;)
But nevertheless, it's an excellent, real-looking work! :)

Oh my word. That's amazing. It looks so real!!! I especially like how in the corner it's P.E.R.N. like it was originally called, instead of Pern, like they call it in most of the later books.

I'm definitely going to use this. Too bad it's going to replace my adorable Rufus from gaiaonline wall paper. Oh well. I'm a bigger Pern and Anne McAffrey fan than I am of Gaiaonline.

Amazing job!

Thanx. This is the better version. The other one I kinda screwed up a few bits in the texture. I seem to like this version better than the other one.

I like both images I know some who is a friend and collector of Pern Art. Your image of the full verson reminds me of SteveB who AM decaded SoP too.

Right now my sight it hit and miss. it took a AM Fan Site NKT there is also MoM too. Hans would like to add these two to his collection I am not real hot on typing hyperlinks, loss part of my just cover plan text to hyer forumsdotsrellimdotorg/indexdotphp is Meeting of the Mind Hans. and SteveB who AM decacaded SoP to :)
dotannemccaffreyfansdot org/forum/indexdot php NKT is how I got here. :)
It took your work, and another lover of Pern and Croc Hunter to drop by and relog in been wanting to but my eyes do give me problems. I keep on going.
If you see GinnyStar you are see me.

I believe they mean:

"I like both images [referring to this one and the one that include the Halo joke].

I know someone who is a friend and collector of Pernese artwork. Your image (the full version of it) reminds me of Steve B, to whom Anne McCaffrey dedicated Skies of Pern.

Right now my [website] is hit and miss."

Then I'm not sure what their next sentence is, but I know AM = Anne McCaffrey. Not sure what NKT is, but "MoM" is Meeting of Minds (an Anne McCaffrey forum).

They then go on to talk about Hans, who is a moderator, I believe, at the MoM forum.

They then say they're not good at typing hyperlinks (URLs). Then I think they recopied part of their post on accident. I think they were trying to give you this link [Link]

Personally, I've visited that site. They're very helpful and very much like to discuss Ms. McCaffrey's works.

The rest I'm not entirely sure about, but I think the above is the gist of what they were trying to say. Not sure if it's relevant to you, but I was passing by, admiring your artwork, and thought you might like a mystery cleared up. If not, well, here's another comment for ya. heh

Well, I hope every Pern fan likes my take on the planet itself. I've seen so many images on Pern when it comes to the dragons, the people, but like two or three of the planet. So, I had to do my own.

This is lovely. I've always liked views of planets from far away enough to see it all, but enough to see some detail on the land. The atmosphere and clouds look lovely. :D
One of the subtle details I really like is how the ocean changes shade due to looking at it at an angle the closer it gets to the horizon.

Wow looking great. Always wanted to see a larger view of Pern. You never get a clear "view" from just reading the stories although you know more or less where the continents are located. Great job =)
