Tropical Moon of Ianeira

Continuing a theme I started with “Tropical Moon of Thetis” and have revisited over the years.    Even going as far back as “Space Vista“, I’ve long had a fascination with creating planets and viewing them over an ocean (preferably from a beach).    I had always used Lightwave3D to create the planets but this time I am learning to use a new software package, Cinema4D.

I am very aware that the lighting on the planet is a bit off for a scene like this.   For the sun to be lighting the planet on the horizon, technically the foreground scene should be awash in daylight.  Imagine then that another moon of Ianeira is eclipsing the sunlight to provide you with an even rarer vista 🙂

I hope you enjoy it. Will probably post a render of the planet itself later this week…
