Caves of Tau Ceti by ArthurBlue Caves of Tau Ceti by ArthurBlue
Another little adventure into a human colony in a far away planet.
I made the planet fully in 3D, with a custom bitmap for the land/ocean, with different highlights for each, plus two cloud layers and an atmosphere layer (a very thin one but it's there).
Hope you enjoy watching.
Rendered in Vue.

EDIT: after a comment from Malstorm about the low quality of the original palm trees, I replaced them. He was totally right. Thanks!

EDIT: wow! Thanks :iconreecito: for suggesting the DD and :iconartofkerem: for featuring it!

EDIT: the city is Atlantis from Stargate, as many of you have guessed. I changed some bits of it and re-textured it completely. I'm sorry for not having written it down since the beginning. I'm not sure where I downloaded the model from (because there are several versions of it available in several places) but I think it's from www.scifi-meshes.com, by SGA-3D. It could also have been from Google's 3D warehouse (there are 20 versions or more there).

Thanks!
I make images only as a hobby. I don't make money out of it. :)

Many thanks! I reported the copyright violation to Pinterest.
I don't mind (much) when people use my images without asking permission as long as they at least write my name there. But this guy went so far as to delete my signature from the image and put his own instead! Incredible...
