Mission to Phobos



I've been wanting to depict Phobos from that angle for a long long time...

In case you don't know, Phobos is the main moon of Mars (the other being Deimos) and rotates close to Mars (about 9,400 km from its surface - considering Mars has a diameter of 6,779 km), which means when on Phobos, you would have a majestic sight on Mars. Also, Phobos has almost no gravity, which means you could almost approach it as an asteroid, which differs a lot from approaching our Moon.

I've worked around 6 hours on this photomanipulation, made with Gimp (+ a 3D sphere mapping of Mars with Blender).

All on Linux-Ubuntu.

All of my Mars art is detailed on my Da Vinci Mars Design blog :…

Does Phobos really look monochrome? I thought it was slightly tinted?
