Stormy Seas of an Earth Like Moon by ValentiniaK Stormy Seas of an Earth Like Moon by ValentiniaK
To see the whole story of my art collection, please check out my Journal "My Science Fiction Story for my Art Collection." [link]

Spent roughly 30 hours on this piece, the planet took 5-8 hours, (spent most of the time trying to figure it out)
Photoshop CS 6
I have to use PNG because it is absolutely the highest quality you can get, JPG at quality 12 maximum does not even compare. If you want to download this image, it will probably take a bit depending on your computer, mines took 31 seconds to upload.

Use grunge brushes btw for seascapes.

Welcome to the many moons of Sunatta Moon System, but you came on a rather stormy but clearing day. The time of day is mid night, however it may not appear as due to the large looming Gas Giant in the distant.

Scientific concept; scene of what an Earth sized moon may look like orbiting a gas giant within the Habitable Zone. Because the gas planet would be within this zone, there would likely be a high amount of water vapor in the atmosphere, clouds would most likely be white rather than the pastel colors as portrayed on Jupiter, and Saturn.

The seas are green-blue due to the high level of algae and bacteria in the oceans.

Weather forecast; 75% chance of rain, thunder storms but clearing through the night. 67 degree lows 74 degree highs, 96% humidity. Half Planet.

The planet in the background is somewhat jarring when compared to the general dark colors of the picture; I think it would be better to at least fade the planet out somewhat to take into account clouds in front of it. Other than that, everything fits together nicely. I also think this is the first time I've seen anyone accurately display whiteheads or the contrast of dark and light currents underneath rising waves.

I've actually been looking for an answer to this question, so far without success, but since you seem to have researched these things, maybe you would know: is it possible to have a moon that rotates like a planet does, or do they all eventually stop in one position the way Earth's moon has?

good good question, a moon such as this one would be under such strain from the gas giant that it would be gravitally locked towards the planet, so one side of the planet will almost never have a true black night since even on a NEW PLANET phase the sky would still be very bright from the planet. Any life that would become intelegent may face huge problems with looking into the far off distance since its seldemly black sky.
