I like the pallet here. The alien sky is very Riddick looking, however it could certainly use some softer shadows and some richer tones of light on the surface. I am assuming you will create some sort of path or surrounding grounds to the platform? Perhaps even the addition of some buildings or even some retro looking ships coming in for a landing? I look forward to seeing where this goes. Cheers

Yeah, it's a VERY heavy atmosphere (@90atm) with three layers of dense global clouds and a power fractal plugged into the atmosphere shadow mask that adds tunable grain to the atmosphere. I think the blockiness come from the .jpg compression on the posted image. It isn't present in the 70meg orginal .tif.

Good pic so far but...shouldn't there be evidence of, or actual lava?
something borrowed,
something Blue.
Ring out the Old.
Bring in the New

cool, I guess logic dictates staying as far away from it as possible in any case.
