Wow, we've got some serious ego clashing going on here... Anyway, I think that the piece looks pretty badass myself and I especially love the aurora.
If I were to give any advice at all, I would say that Perhaps the ring could use a little more coloration. If you look at this image "[link]" the rings aren't completely black and white. Also, Saturn isn't shaped like a perfect circle. One of the things that Saturn is pretty well known for is the flatness of it's poles and how "squished" the planet seems to look in appearance. This process is caused by the rotation (or spinning) of the planet, which in turn creates centrifugal force; and since Saturn is a gas giant the squishing is more pronounced because of this.
However, I do understand when scientific accuracy becomes more of a burden than a helpful asset. Just because I can pick out all of the little inaccuracies doesn't detract from how awesome I think the image is.
lol i suppose you read the conversation above ? well it isnt perfect sphere, but yes it isnt as flat as in reality either... but you are right about rings i had the color map, but i forgot to apply it, and when i realized it, i was too lazy to repair it ... but there are more irregularities, the color of aurora, position of moons, overall colors ... i didnt want to be completly limited by reality, but i did want to make it with realistic feeling, not like qaz haha, but anyway i am really glad you like it, and thanks a lot for you comment
yea well ... he doesnt take any advice, because ,,thats exactly how i wanted to make it !!!" and besides he hide every comment that suggest he should make it just a tiny bit different or that he doesnt like it at 110% ...
