Well, I guess it was inevitable that I would eventually take a shot at the whole 'terraspace' genre. I have already been doing space scenes and 3D modelling, plus I have recently been playing around in Teragen, so I just had to take a shot at combining these elements together. I'm fairly happy with the way this turned out, though I like to think of it as simply the first step in a very exciting journey.

As usual, any advice/tips/suggestions from veterans in any of these fields would be greatly appreciated, as I know I still have much to learn!

Landscape: Terragen. The same terrain as Drowned Kingdom [link] , but with very different surface mapping/lighting. Star/nebula reflections in the lake were added in Photoshop.

Nebulae/Planets: Photoshop, with a few Apophysis flames to enhance the nebulae. My first attempt at rendering anything with Apophysis, it can have some very pretty results.

Spaceships/station: Modelled and rendered in Cinema 4D. They're fairly low on detail compared to my Wanderer [link] - but at this scale that shouldn't make much of a difference.

Of the thumbs in your gallery, this one caught my eye. I'm partial to the color blue and this is stunning and grandiose! Beautifully put together, me thinks...

I love the kind of swirly nebulae in the sky, it's really beautiful, they almost look like those ancient star-charts with the circles on them and stuff...The planet is cool and looks like it was done by an advanced user (neat!) but a bit too big imo, unless the ships weren't there. The ships sorta detract from the nature-type beauty of the scene as well...

nice work not bad..
but it's a bit too chaotic.. it's a bit too much..
the terrain looks good but the texture is rather booring .. could use some more colour..
The planet is nice but the texture looks a bit dull try adding some more details..

the starfield/nebulas are a bit overdone.. I don't hink it's a good idea to use fractals for spacescenes..
they look very weird and unrealistic.. try to brush your nebulas.. they will look much better..

the spaceship are nice .. a bit dark tho..

still nice work , keep it up :)
