This was one of two pieces I was commissioned to do several months ago for a new multi-player online game in development called Rise of Emodo. The project was to be funded through Kickstarter and looked to be set to meet its funding goals. However, 15 hours before the funding period closed the project was inexplicably terminated by Kickstarter. The people working on the game have been seeking alternate means of funding but I don't know where things currently stand, or if I'll finish the second piece (depends on whether or not funding is secured), but here is the first piece.
The only reason I was interested in the Kickstarter was your work- and as I have said before, this piece is absolutely phenomenal!!
Thanks Zyanitevp, I really appreciate your encouragement. This one stretched me a bit. I found a lot of great tutorials for making gas giants using Photoshop, but the operations are much different in GIMP, and I wasn't completely satisfied with the result. However room to grow I guess.
