I created this piece after reading George R.R. Martin's "Dying of the Light" in 2009 and I was honestly a bit surprised that it shot to the top of my most highly rated images. The process might sound complicated by it was actually pretty simple and the whole project only took a few days. The nova was rendered first as a series of Apophysis plates, then imported into Lightwave and arranged to form a pleasing supernova. The planets were added and the whole thing rendered to another plate which I used as a sky-spanning "planet" object in Vue d'Esprit. The landscape is pretty old-school for me (with no crazy Ecosystems). It all came together very nicely however and I hope to have a print version up as soon as I can figure out how to render the clouds convincingly at high-res.
