Waters of Europa by JoeyJazz Waters of Europa by JoeyJazz
For fullview and wallpaper visit: [link]

Info by Greg Martin:

Covered with layer of constantly renewing ice
ten kilometers deep, Europa has been called
the next best possibility for life in our solar
system. As such it isn't hard to imagine we will
one day send submersibles beneath the ice in
search of the upwelling heat and nutrient
sources needed for life as we know it to
flourish.


Fourth piece for ETP. The most fun doing it, the most time spent on it (so far). You see - there isn't much light beneath the ten kilometers of ice, so the light sources had to be artifical. Robotic submersibles were the first (and right) choice. It's not reality, it's a possible future but not complete science-fiction. And what is better than one robot? TWO! - They are called Ecco and Hello (which shines right into our eyes so we can see just it's flashlight. And yeah - it's more like a waterscape than spacescape :)

Oh, and the making of: [link]

This is amazing! I've actually been dancing around the idea of a book set on Europa and I was wondering if you'd mind me using this as a part of a cover that I'd make? I would give you credit, of course, either by your Deviantart name or whatever name you prefer, and there isn't a guarantee that it will actually be published ever, but I would absolutely love to use this art if you'd allow it!

It's no problem if the book is for free.

Then it's for personal purposes and you may use it - rememeber, the moment it is published, you will have to pay for non-exclusive rights at least.

Pretty cool... reminds me of the film Europa Report
(I hope they make another one like that except where they visit that moon called Titan)
I actually wasn't very impressed with Europa Report but then again I think they were trying to be a little less fantastic than most space scifi stuff.

Or we could call it hard SF, which is often the best since it inspires scientists to make it into reality!

This is so beautiful. When i went on the experience the planet website, the combination of art and music just made me amazed.

I just stared in awe. I've always been a fan of astronomy, the paintings and music just makes makes me happy- well, euphoric. It's almost as if i myself am floating in space and observing events you guys capture in canvas in real time!

Keep up the great work!

This is pretty awesome man. I really find europa interesting. Ive tried making a terragen scene from the surface of it but making the surface reflective tends to make terragen error during the render. Oh well, but again this peice is amazing and very interesting perspective of the moon.
