Triton's ocean


Badge Awards

I revisited an old idea of Triton having a liquid water ocean on it's surface shortly after Neptune captured it. Tidal forses during Triton's capture would have generated enough heat in it's core to melt water ice on it's surface. It would also have a thich atmosphere back then. After Triton setled into a more stable orbit around Neptune tidal forses diminished and the heat sourse faded away refreezing it's surface back into an icy wasteland we can see today. I did not pursued realism while working on this painting, just wanted to keep my original vision intact.

Great work! Such landscapes could have been a reality for billions of years. But the oceans were not made of water, but of liquid nitrogen.

I have an idea : here's my post...

Can you do it ? First, I'm making my map, for the game eventually, and you should help. Nothing is mandatory, of course, if you accept, that would be great !

Interesting thought. I do wonder how Triton looked shortly after capture, and I wonder how many of Neptune's previous moons it took out doing so.

Something fiery going on over on Neptune. The glare of the sun on its atmosphere changing colour as it nears the brightest point is a nice touch.

Simply splendid artistic composition, as is virtually everything in your gallery.
