Cumae by jagged-r0cks Cumae by jagged-r0cks
The small and furry animals called Cumaeites that dwell on Cumae's habitable surface thrive off of the plethora of vegitation and the warmth of given off by the heat and light of a close supernova 4 lightyears away. The excessive leangth of the explosion has enabled life to blossom on the surface, however the Cumaeites' existance is destined to by short lived. Poor things


Few hours. The story was going along great but the impatience struck and i left you with a sad ending. Shucks. Im proud of the planet, and i didnt want to get too complex. An attempt to add a moon and an asteroid belt left the piece unfocused. Embrace the minimalism.

Oh yeah, i made this while talking to a friend and took a couple of screenshots along the way, if you want em, just ask. I had fun

PS: Yes, im aware of the absurdity of the name and story. There is another story behind it, which includes using the name incandescence, but then i realized that such names are meaningless although they sound cool. Woot

Cumae by =jagged-r0cks is a nice reminder that incredible space art can be done with a minimalist approach. Beautiful textures and soft colors, this one is comforting in its peaceful serenity. ( Suggested by Nameless-Designer and Featured by Aeires )

How'd you do the texture for the planet? It's a very nice job whatever way you did it ;)

I always wonder, how can anyone make planets like this...I've tried it, but I just can't make them as beautiful as this one :lol:

Extremely simple, yet incredibly detailed and breath taking. I guess simplicity allows you to focus on detail a whole lot more. Excellent job!
