Great work! It would be awesome to see you extend the series by doing the moons of the Gas Giants.

Jupiter and it's moon Io have been my favourite extra-terrestrial bodies for many years. Mainly because Io another geologically active body in the solar system, aside from Earth and Saturn's moon Triton (I'm a geology/seismics fundie). This is just gorgeous. I'm using this one on my Mac and Earth and Mercury on my work PC's. Now if only I could talk my boss into letting me put two on the Tsunami screens, I'd be a happy girl. Awesome work :)

Awesome mate....simply awesome.I louv your choice of colors and shades.

Did u ever think of making a calander out of these planet series ?
cagdasyoldas Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2005  Professional Photographer
it's a great idea to make something like this for all planets in solar system.
the only thing that bugs me about this piece is the absence of moon Europa! I wish it was also in the scene. because it's the most beatiful planet i've ever seen.. ;)
Great job :)

Hey Hameed,

It's an easy understanding. It's all about timing and delivery.

I was quoted once as saying that "Good art is controvery, collaboration, and communication, combined. You have to leave even the most calloused and jaded onlooker with something to talk about. Because in discussion, education is borne... And the very act of education furthers art."

In my "work," I don't really care if you hate my vision. As long as you talk about it, I've achieved my goal. I'm just "an asshole (pardon Moi) with thick skin," after all...

Your work is visionary and captivating. Educating. And enriching.

Color me humbled.

I'll be watching...

Thank you for actually understanding! :)

kleintologist Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2004
Brilliant, simply brilliant.

As artists we seek to educate, to inspire conversation, to instill a thirst for knowledge.

As scientists, and those of the "learned ilk," we seek to stimulate, and inspire.

It is work like yours that furthers that "building we would construct" to benefit society.

Bravo, and well done...

Oh my god !! This is unbelieveable! You could sell this to some astronomy book ! Really nice idea to put the information in the pic, makes this even more incredible! Really really really really awsome work m8! Keep up the g-o-o-d work!

the big planet :D (Big Grin) +fav
lord-zany Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2003
ah yes, thanks to my horrible ISP the pictures come up far quicker than with IE. Because the color settings are messed, but o well, i can still see how freakin sweet this one is.

I do believe it has a core that would be possible to land on. Cuz nothing is impossible. Even if you could only land for .3232 seconds, it's still a landing.

hey, but im an idiot. so whatever, this is simply an assumption. Love the planet, and the pictuer. quality work.

Magnificent peice! Very well done and thought-through. And a perfect wall for my machine! (domain: jupiter, machine: Metis). I love the overall style you've used, the colors and scans are beautiful, and the educational information is great, not to mention the planetary statistics.

Definately +fav !

And thank you :D (Big Grin)

These renderings are beautiful! Wallpaper here we come!
jjay Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2003   Photographer
Nicely done hameed, but being a gas giant and having barely visible rings I think maybe it could have been better to see a more close up image, great use of textures on both Jupiter and IO. Although IO seems a little pixcelated in the dark halo underneath.

allekto Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2003
the detail on this is amazing, as with the entire series. however, i'm curious why you left out any mythological references on this sheet. that's just my thing though... this entire series is gorgeous. i am extremely jealous of your skill.

dinyctis Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2003
excellent job.
nothing to dislike, except that jupiter doesnt seem like the subject here, but thats just me, its no big deal.
information is interesting as well, you have taken wallpapers a step beyond visuals
rougeux Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2003  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Great use of textures. I like that you used Io's texture so well up close. A lot of great detail in both textures used. I like this one a lot.

Jupiter, oh grand giant of our solar system. The first time I read about the red storm, my jaw literally dropped, as it was so incredible to know that it was so big. Really scary, but fascinating at the same time. I think many scientist would give anything to know the origin of this amazing phenomenon.

One of your best sheets so far. I'm still amazed by your work, if you didn't notice it yet. ;) (Wink)

Excellent job!
dark-angel Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2003
