This was about a 4-5 hour piece if i remember correctly. I had the photo on my hd for a long time and after adding lightning to the sky and failing every attempt to blend the thick cloud into the black space i gave up for about a week. Came back and managed to do something within 30 mins. I hate how that happens.
The first planet was the same one used in my New Settlement
piece, i loved it so much i just had to use it again. Though it was hard to try blending that too.
I basically just added random things into the picture because i had no base theme. And this was the end result. Nothing hi class, but its worth the view.
Thank you for all of your feedback, i've managed to fix all the problems, i think, that you guys saw, and i added extra features.
Added more dust around the planets ring
Added a visible sun (light source) from the original photo
Added a sharper filter to the photo
Made the blue flare a lot smaller
Added planet city lights
Removed the original red moon and added a different one.
Motion blured the ships
Thanks to Ed Giddings for the ships
