This is a wonderful view of a planet, the detail and colours bring it to life.
I have recently completed a s/f book which has been fully edited and ready to go and I am now trying to find a publisher for it. If I can't find a publisher I may try to self publish it as an ebook. What ever the result turns out to be I am looking for some art to go on the cover. I am looking to have it depict a world with lots of small continents, polar icecaps and a small orbiting spaceship. The world has no visible signs of intelligent life from orbit and the spaceship is a singlemanned craft with a large hold containing an even smaller craft used to land on the planet.
Would you be interested in creating such an image?
Yes I would be interested and honored in creating such an image, only that I don't know how to use 3d rendering programs to create the spaceship. What I can do is to paint it, but my skill in digital painting is really low, I recently started to learn it and I'm learning by myself so it wont look very real and very good( something like this [link] ) or to create something really small like the one in this picture. The planet i think i could create it, not something really detailed or real ( like the one in this picture ). One other thing is how fast would you want it to be done, because like I said my skills aren't that good so I work a little slowly(I think I can make something acceptable in a few days).
I saw the spaceship when browsing your other images before posting the reply to your planet image I was hoping to have something more realistic in the picture. However I am not in any hurry for the work as I said I have yet to find a publisher for the book. The spaceship however could just be appearing in the corner of the picture or be a shot of the rear of the craft as its engines are engaged achieving orbit of the planet.
Well, don't get me wrong i will more than glad to create the image you requested, but I think you should find an more experimented artist. As i said before I'm not able to do the image as you want, I'm kinda new to this kind of things, well not really new i start it a few years ago from pure passion for space and si-fi, but everything i know i learned by myself and didn't put really much time into it, it's just a passion, so my skills aren't enough. Here on deviantart you can find lots of great artist and I'm sure you gonna find one to help you.
I have a collection of some great works form some awesome artist around that you can see here -> [link] But there are many more around.
I wish you best with your book and hope you will find the publisher and the artist. Also thank you for considering me for the artwork, I'm more than honored and means a lot to me.

You must have seen this through the mind of someone else (not of this world) if not your imaginative properties in your subconscious must be immense specially if you could accurately depict are planet in such detail. Enjoy your star walks NemosS! They must be heavenly.
