Another Day In Paradise by priteeboy Another Day In Paradise by priteeboy
Nothing like a good o'l tropical + space combo which for me is one of the few things I can work on without getting annoyed by it :D An appeal in both always has me coming back and they're often some of my favourites to make :)

And this one is being the sixth in row is a testament to that I think, time came around again for another one of my yearly birthday submissions, where I create a place for myself just for the hell of it, back to a daytime theme again since the last four years ago :faint: The scenery has improved though, and hopefully I will age as gracefully for a while longer with it =p

I actually did seek some degree of real experience as inspiration for this, not that I've ever been anywhere just like it but close enough. A clear day isn't the most dramatic situation but I love how it shows everything in good detail, really allowing me to show off the colours of the scenery, the day ones usually are more about the scene than the space, but the sky sure felt empty before creating some nearby worlds for it 8-)

The collection continues to grow, here's past versions:

I love this piece. What I like most is the idea of a living and ringed Earth-like planet. It's not that improbable.
Recently a ringed asteroid has been discovered, so why not a much more massive celestial body, like a rocky planet, would have a ring?
Or maybe it was added artificially as some kind of turistic atraction? Because sure it looks extremely beautiful at night seen from the surface or from any of the moons.

I heard about that asteroid. I also saw it as proof that rocky planets can have rings around them. Ever since the days of classical airbrushed sci-fi art I've seen rocky planets illustrated with rings just as often as those that were noticeably gas giants, as a kid it irked me since going by our Solar System I believed only gas giants could have rings. But as I got older I too started illustrating rocky planets with rings simply because it looks cool 8-) Now thanks to that asteroid they can actually be considered plausible :lol:

Maybe it didn't happen in our system because the rocky planets are too close to the sun. I heard that being too close to the sun disrupts moon and ring formation. We are lucky we even got our moon :diny:
