Out There by bloknayrb Out There by bloknayrb
Textures from Google Earth, as well as [link] from :iconkleanthis: ~kleanthis .
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.

Ok, bedtime.

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 :iconpatrikarvidsson: (especially for reminding me wo was there), ~ChrisCold :iconchriscold: , and ~Zhachrod :iconzhachrod: for their input :)

Great perspective! Love the starfield! And the special colors with the effects on the planets is pretty nice! Gives it that amazing space feeling!

Thanks, I was hoping people would be able to tell this was in space ;)

Uh it is in space... You making fun of me? JK nah but I mean most space art are just nice, but not all have that feeling where you actually feel there and makes you wonder what's out there.

I was just kidding ;)
Thanks, that actually is what I always try to go for in my pictures and I'm glad this did that for you!

Yeah you surely did it this time! And on a few other space art of yours! :)
