With the New Horizons probe quickly approaching its rendezvous with Pluto, I thought it might be fun to imagine just what it will find when it gets there. This piece isn’t intended to be 100% scientifically accurate, but rather a fanciful (and hopefully artistic) view of Pluto from its moon Charon.

    Might be a good place to visit for a photo shoot or two. That atmosphere looks too thin to sustain life for long.

  2. Rusty [lifer]

    The Scientists taking of pictures of Pluto should have just called you.

    With the smaller moon, the image got a better balance. I really like the image as a whole, but would have liked some more details in the foreground to better match the details on the moon. 🙂

  4. Silviaf [lifer]

    I do love the planet and space images 🙂 always a pleasure looking at your work 😀

  5. bronzed [lifer]

    I really love this one!

    Yeah, I definitely like the revision (with the smaller moon/planet). Not that I had any issue with the original, it just seemed that the moon/planet took up too much of the frame, in my opinion. But yeah, well done was always, sir!

  7. Chris [lifer]

    I always liked the space/planet/nebulae wallpapers, this is no exception!

    This would be nothing less than spectacular on my Dell U3415w 3440×1440

  9. Molly [nonmonthly]

    Really neat conception, and I especially love the Milky Way in the background. Can’t way to see the photos from New Horizons!

    i like meatballs in space ;-))

    no kidding created beautiful Ryan!

    Very nice, as usual. I can’t help but wonder if the foreground planet has atmosphere? Is that haze fog? or a light ice layer? And the distant planet – what are the different layers – rock for the greyish, and the brown is… plant life? Different rock?

    Very interesting 🙂

  12. Hoverwolf1 [lifer]

    Cool. Cool cool cool.

  13. Ali [lifer]

    Looks good. Looking forward to the planet version.

    One of your best lately. I particularly like the level of detail in this one. This makes it really stand out on a hi-res monitor!

    On a side note: I’ve noticed that for a couple of your newest renders, the Surface Pro 3 resolution (2160×1440) is missing. Menger Bulb appears to have been the last one. Is that on purpose? Because I really love using your artwork on my SP3 because the high resolution on a 12 inch display makes the details look stunning. But I realize its aspect ratio is somewhat different, so if that is the reason, I could understand that.

    Best regards from The Netherlands.

    Ryan – you make such amazing artwork that makes me want so badly for them to be real places!

    I can’t tell you how many sci-fi books I have read that are populated in my head with your images…real satellite images are almost disappointing.

  16. sigmaman [lifer]

    Very cool Ryan. Love the detail.

  17. BobC [lifer]

    Quite fanciful, yes. All the better and that’s why we like it so much. I agree that the band of atmosphere (I think) is slightly distracting – I had to think about it for a while to figure out what was going on.

  18. VSanch24 [lifer]

    I really enjoy the space-scapes you do. Was the reason for my lifetime membership! I wonder if we will get actual images that look like this from a probe.

  19. Jenanne [lifer]

    The planet’s rocky and crater-pocked surface is great — the deep blue and brown hues give it an attractive and realistic look. I’m not as crazy about the foreground; in particular, the misty white band at the horizon is too straight and uniform — doesn’t look quite real. And I’m not sure what the white surface is supposed to be; it looks a bit like ocean waves or a field of ice. Otherwise, though, terrific!

    This render is amazing Ryan!!! I love planetscapes and spacescapes and this render is both… Love it!!!
