Alcyone by esk6a Alcyone by esk6a
Hy! Its time to show you some of my new works...I was kinda busy with random meaningless things but meanwhile I made a lot of landscape renders and planets so I thought Ill mix something up for a scene.

Also, this piece is dedicated especially for the new Access to Arasaka album "Geosynchron". I listened to it while I made this scene and I really love the song "Alcyone"

You can listen it here: [link]
Great futuristic/spacey music. Just excellent music for making space :D

Done in Vue and PS in approx 8 hours (+-1.5h render time)

Thanks for looking! Any feedback is greatly appreciated!!!

----------

Alcyone (η Tau, η Tauri, Eta Tauri) is a star system in the constellation Taurus. It is the brightest star in the Pleiades open cluster, which is a young cluster, aged at less than 50 million years. Alcyone is approximately 370 light years from Earth. It is named after the mythological figure Alcyone, one of the mythological Pleiades. It is known as (the Sixth Star of the Hairy Head) in Chinese.Contents

The main star, known as Alcyone A, is a blue-white B-type giant similar to many of the other B-type stars in the Pleiades cluster. It has an apparent magnitude of +2.87 (absolute magnitude = −2.39), and a radius almost 10 times that of the Sun. Its temperature is approximately 13,000 K giving it a total luminosity that is 2,400 times solar. The spectral type of B7IIIe indicates that emission lines are present in its spectrum. Like many Be stars, Alcyone A has a high rotational velocity of 215 km/s, which has created a gaseous disk flung into orbit around the star from its equator.

Really... Geosynchron, Orbitus and Aleph are imho the best albums of AtA - and you can capture this individual ambiance, and it's very amazing - just keep it up

I've got this as my background, I love this so much. The shadows on the surface and on the backside of the mountains with the light pouring over the tops of the hills in the distance are just incredible. Definitely the best out of all the sunrises on here. :D

Not bad but I think the rings are way too far from its planet... Also U should add brighter outerglow on the terragen! Last thing the lens flare could be better :)

The rings are just at perfect distance for my taste :D Also,there is no lens flare just a strong light in the corner.
