Take a look at the January 2004 issue of National Geographic at your local news stand when you get a chance. The cover image is a rendering of Mars done by Kees Veenenbos. The image is entitled "Maraldi Crater on an Icy mars".

We have hosted a few of Kees' renderings in our Wallpaper area here for quite some time now and think this is an exciting acomplishment! You can see a large version of the cover image by clicking on this link. Or, visit the main page of Space4Case.com to see all of Kees' work. A thumbnail of the National Geographic cover can also be found as a reply to this item inside.

And the thumbnail image...



You can find more Mars info from this issue at the following link:

...but not much! For the details, you'll have to pickup the issue.

By the way, if you're interested, Kees uses Terragen for the basis of all his work...

I certainly agree with you Hawkeye, his work is truely superb.  I do recognize Terragen in there and he does an outstanding job at it especially raising the water level and getting the subsurface depth just enough to blend it in naturally.  Terragen is just like Bryce, Lightwave, etc, it takes work to get the renderings right, but it can be done-no I'm definitely not there but Kees Veenenbos sure is.  Jan

how the heck could he do that with terragen? I seen his work before, and he's definitely a master of that program.
