Textures from Google Earth, as well as [link]
Rest was brushed with a mouse and a trackpad because my tablet was in my bag and I was too lazy to take it out. This took like, a month.
And I have so much other shit that's more important than this, but whatever.
Entering this is the Unknown Moons contest.
EDIT: Ok, wow, not the best description ever. The Google Earth textures were used for the inhabited moon, and the other texture was used for the smaller large moon on the bottom left. Everything else was painted with the mouse/trackpad.
Much of the success of this piece (and by that I mean it not sucking) is due to the help of a few people from the #SpaceArt
chat room. I don't remember everyone that helped, but if you comment/note me I'll most definitely add you onto this description.
I also have to thank Bear McCreary, whose Battlestar Galactica soundtracks blew my mind while I did this.
Also I made this huge, so wallpapers of just about any size are possible, if they are desired.
EDIT: Changed it. This version has a border, as well as more selective sharpening. It's also bigger. Yay!
Also, special thanks to =patrikarvidsson
