Sister, Feel the Warmth of Our Parent by ValentiniaK Sister, Feel the Warmth of Our Parent by ValentiniaK
The image if requested to use for commercial use would be required to contact the artist.

However...
Feel free to use the texture for the moons for whatever the fuck you want EXCEPT to claim as your own. (commercial use of the texture of the link I am about to provide is OK.

Took roughly 10-17 hours of work if taken in account of the textures I made.
Photoshop CS
For the textures I used many images from NASA Visible Earth and manipulated them.
For the Nebulas I just used a chunk of marble. Marble has very nice nebula textures.

The Story
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

The star system is roughly 2.9 Billion years of age, the star is a Trinary system (look closely in the distance you can see a feeble star in the background, the biggest star in the back ground) would be the other parent. The main star is a K7 spectrum type while the other parent is a M red dwarf star. You will notice that the shadows on the some of the moons tend to be very subtle, the 3d Trinary star far off in the distance sometimes lights up the shadows a bit ( depending on the location) the Trinary Star is another M dwarf.

Celinia and Uloria are both habitable para-terraformed moons.
They both have masses roughly that of Mercury.
Their magnetosphere is too feeble to keep the atmosphere from being stripped from solar wind, so after the terraforming process they needed to build a transparent world dome around these worlds. The substances used to construct the world dome may have to be made out of a self healing polymer.

I will be doing an artist concept of a paratarraformed world.
But as of now I know some examples.

I will later also do a Gas Giant for a family picture for this moon system once I learn how do create a realistic gas planet.

That's a really beautiful piece, I especially like the planet textures and the colors. The marble texture was clever too, looks very convincing as gas clouds. ;)

Now with fresh eyes, I would say that the big planet does need a bit more depth in it's atmosphere, I can tell it is very spherical, but I will be making later adjustments to make the larger planet, uhm I meant Moon more detailed.

The close up planet needs to have more detail, the second planet I think needs to have a darker shadow to give the overall image more depth. Add some shading on the close up planet too, like in the corner. Also, try not use the same texture twice, it's quite boring to the eye.

I took your advice on the big planet, I buffed the contrast on the clouds and added a subtle shadow, It is looking a bit better now.

Not bad though the shadow on the planet should be thicker and the bigger one could be made better in general.

Really nice, loving the colour scheme and the detail.

Also great idea on the marble texture for a simple but effective nebula, may have to use that idea myself.

Great Job.

Yo thanks when I started this shit, I had little clue of what the fuck I was trying to create in terms of composition. But man photoshop is the most forgiving medium in history.

That's about how forgiving Photoshop is. You can DELETE history.
