Arriving Loumin

"Loumin, orbiting Degre V, a large gas giant 10 times the size of jupiter. The planet wide ecumenopolis is the perfect place to hide in the outer borders of UTA space.

Loumin is a United Terran Alliance colony planetoid located in the Canis Maior System. It is orbiting around Degre V in the Adara solar system 470 light years away from Earth.
Loumin contains a planet wide ecumenopolis, and is considered a luxury planet, home to some of the wealtiest gas lords in the sector. Loumins main export is crystallized gasseous elements from Degre V.

Loumin was declared UTA territory in 2434.

Time Spent: 5 hours

Scene from a thought out event in my sci-fi novel 2635. A ship arrives in Loumin space on the search of a fugitive.

Decided to make this after looking at empty space for too long. Used the wonderful gas stocks found here: [link]
Made by the amazing :iconpriteeboy:

Hot damn O_o I love the scale on this <3 Also, the lights on the! xD

Very nice work ;) I would say that it appears a little flat, like others have said, however veiwed from this plane i believe it would. Most people would tilt the gas planet a little, but veiwed from this angle seems to make it appear more dominant, and gives the pic a memorable, unique quality :D

I'd say breathtaking view but the gas giant looks a bit flat.

This is amazing!!! Love it! I could see this as some beautiful space background in J.J. Abrams' Star Trek world or something like that.

Yes, the curve at the edge of the gas giant is apparent if you look for it, but on first glance the planet does look a little flat. I love the sense of scale, though. A tiny vessel, dwarfed by a gargantuan planet, itself still a mere "mote of dust" in the Cosmos.

*presses like*
I was going to type loads of how I like scale and realism and stuff and how I agree, but I don't know how to write things so... ^_^

Yeah, I wasn't sure how to word it exactly either, so I borrowed one of Carl Sagan's favourite phrases. He said that Earth was like a speck of dust in the cosmic ocean, or something (I'm not really doing what he actually said any justice).

Seeing spaceships up close and in detail is always nice, but seeing them from a great distance and getting the opportunity to appreciate how unbelievably tiny they are compared to the infinity of space is mind boggling. This image gets me thinking about that. :)

Never seen it used like this before, the fact the scale of the gas giant maps is small in relation to the planet itself makes it seem more like a gas behemoth rather than just a gas giant :omg: Has a grand sense of scale, I think a slight tilt to it would have added an even better effect, but I can still tell it "curves" as it nears the edge. The lights on the planet look great too :clap:
