Moon of Saturn by UnbiasedRaytracer Moon of Saturn by UnbiasedRaytracer
Panoramic landscape on one of the moons of Saturn drifting somewhere in the haze of E ring.

Enceladus is one of the major inner satellites of Saturn. It is the fourteenth satellite when ordered by distance from Saturn, and orbits within the densest part of the E Ring, the outermost of Saturn's rings, an extremely wide but very diffuse disk of microscopic icy or dusty material, beginning at the orbit of Mimas and ending somewhere around the orbit of Rhea.

Parhelias produced by ice crystals over the shattered icy surface with cryovolcanos erupting plumes of water up into the −198 C ethereal frost.

Created in Blender, over 20 000 000 polygons in sculpted terrain clusters, lots of post-processing and compositing during a month of a hard work.

~TheEthernet,
Sure, you can use as long as you credit.
And don't forget to show me your scene once it's complete

Hi. I love your piece of art, it is very well rendered.

I am working on a piece of art work at the moment and I need an epic landscape back ground for the scene I am planning, can I have permission to use your art work? I will totally credit you in the finished product.

It will be used in a photograph as a back ground.

Let me know if I have permission to use your artwork :) (I like to ask, its polite)

Thank Mate :)

By the way your use of lighting is spot on for this scene :)
