once again all you see here is fantasy and no reality simulation kind of work. imagine you’re on a distant planet. maybe stranded… totally lost. the only thing you hear is the roaring wind that strides through the canyon. the slight sound of smoothly flowing water. you see that impressive wide view of an alien desert like environment… to finally look up into the sky to see a planet’s asteroid belt rising… soon followed by the planet itself.
what you see here is a panorama. a wallpaper thought for dual-screen setup.
the actual terragen background consists of 7 different pics. merged and maniped together within photoshop. that was quite a task… beside the usual manip work i did. for the planet i used parts *alyn‘s planet tutorial and it offered me some hints how to create the belt for the planet. my overall target was to create a well balanced serene scene… and i think i succeeded. a great start into 2005.
