Neptune from Triton by Alpha-Element Neptune from Triton by Alpha-Element
:)!!!!!I RECOMMEND DOWNLOADING FOR BEST QUALITY AND DETAIL IN THIS PIECE!!!!!:)

:D!!!!!PLEASE READ THE DESCRIPTION!!!!!:D

:)!!!!!PLEASE COMMENT AND GIVE YOUR VIEWS AND OPINIONS ON THIS PIECE IF YOU'D LIKE!!!!!:)


did this one in about 5 hours. a 95% accurate recreation of the neptunian system as viewed from Triton.
-Proteus (bright moon to the bottom far right of Neptune) and Larissa (very faint and tiny moon to top left of Neptune) are seen -here at nearly 100% accurate size as seen from triton.
-Neptune's rings are 80-95% accurate in terms of its structure, but it is a little too bright.
-Neptune itself came out farely ok, except for the fact that the great dark spot got blown up by a factor of 3 because of spherize. and its distance from triton is 99% accurate.
-the system and rings tilt are also farely accurate at this point in triton's orbit.
-the brightness on triton may be a little dark, but it came out pretty good. i also like the way the ice geysers came out, they're a nice touch to the scene.


all in all, i am in love with this scene, maybe because i just feel there on triton.:) but i have to admit that this one of my best scenes yet!:D

comments and critques are most appreciated as i would love to hear what you guys have to say about it!:)


many thanks to fallengraces:iconfallengraces: for the geyser stock used!:)

Lovely picture. To think those geysers are tectonic in origin. If I remember correctly, the planet's gravity is pulling the moon apart. (Think it was a PBS special)

thank you, and yes those geysers are tectonic in origin. that's because titan orbits neptune in a direction opposite to its rotation. over time, neptune will pull the moon in closer until it gets torn apart or collides with the planet.

Forget about Triton orbiting Neptune in a direction opposite to its rotation.

The Dark Spot of Neptune is somewhat random in terms of size, location and appearance unlike the GRS of Jupiter. So I can't comment on the DS, but what I can comment on is... SO AWESOME :iconsoawesomedashplz:

Considering the fact that Neptune is my favorite planet. Next is Jupiter.

neptune is also one of my favourite planets simply because it looks so serene and quiet.

Very nice landscape, first time seeing the idea of depicting steam geysers on snow planets.

there not steam geysers. as i said in the decription, there cryo-geysers/ ice-geysers. they shoot frozen water instead of steam. but thanks still!:D
