Coastal Plateau by steve-burg Coastal Plateau by steve-burg
This is a 3D landscape created in Lightwave 3D. I did a little bit of fine tuning in Photoshop, but the render looks more or less the same as what you see here - minus the ship flying by.

For the sky, I painted a very large texture and mapped it onto a sphere. The image made use of some of the 360 panoramic skies found on CG Textures [link]

EDIT: This is supposed to be a view of the surface of the fictional planet "Zeta Tucanae D" shown here [link] and here [link]

I'm not sure what it might mean, but I find tremendous beauty in desolation! :)

Nice work, is there a spec reflection on the rocks? They look great!

Have you tried TG2? There is at least one way you can create killer volumetric waves - it's extremely cool! but render times are pretty long ;)

Reminds me a bit of the planet Carpathia from the one season series Outcasts. The same cold bleak ladscape, but still full of promise.

I'm trying to track that show down - I don't think it's been shown here (U.S.) - so I'm hoping to locate it on BluRay or something...

BTW this particular planet is extremely low on the "promise" scale :D

It was ok. I love british sci-fi. And this was classic. Sadly it lasted only one season. And ended on the mother of all cliffhangers.

Ahhh... It's always brutal when a show ends unresolved... But I have ordered it on DVD. Thanks for the lead! :D

The most brutal end I can remember is the end of Carnivale. Now that was resolved... but wait a minute, maybe it wasn't.
