Hey everyone, I'm finally back! It's been a long time since I've had the chance to make anything. This is my first piece since October. It was a collab with JoniMustone from DA. Check him out, he does amazing terragen renders. He did the landscape portion of this for me.

This one is my imagination of Earth when it was first born. You science people will probably try to rip me apart for this but please don't be too harsh on it. Not only do I try to keep things more artistic than scientific but I'm almost 6 months rusty!

I hope you like it. (wouldn't mind a vote for header if you like it!)

Okay, as one of the "science people" I guess it's up to me.  The picture looks fine, but not for "day one".  It looks more like a few hundred million years later, during the Late Heavy Bombardment period.  At that time the Moon was much closer, and that seems to be about when the lunar "seas" were formed.  For that, you've done a nice job.

Well at least I got something right! Also, a few hundred million years to the earth is nothing... like a day. j/k, thanks for the input and I'm glad you like it.

Well if you want an artistic nit pick :P, the planet between the two blazing meteors could use a quick fix, seems it was clipped on two sides. And lastley, you might try to smooth out the left edge of the Moon, kind of pulls you out of this little world you made when you see it, if you know what I mean.

Otherwise really great work, I like the complex nebula field you have created in the background.

Thanks for the pointers. Not sure why I missed those details. When my new monitor gets here and I can actually see them I'll probably fix them and repost it.

Looks really good to me JKelly.  Yep the moon was a little closer to us back in them good old days (80,000 or so miles away) and the moon is still receding.  Two thumbs up!   Jan
