Encounter with Saturn
Encounter with Saturn by ~Atlantean6 on deviantART
Sometimes, Exploration can be as dangerous as encountering a space monster or an evil race in space. But the rewards can be great after the trials. This was rendered using a doctored picture of Saturn blissfully taken from the NASA website and the Cassini expedition. The pair are flying in a Vanguard, a large class of shuttle. Up ahead is Saturn.
I had to resize the Saturn picture to fit a certain range, and then use it as a backdrop. The light from Saturn blocks the stars, unfortunately, so no Solar Nebula. I would have used Saturn with a starry backdrop, but the photo editing would have been murder. :)
Sometimes, you need science fiction too. That's why I'm doing more science fiction renders from now on. :D
