Death of Triton by PhotoshopAddict89 Death of Triton by PhotoshopAddict89
This is a piece that I made illustrating the future of Triton, Neptune's biggest moon. Triton is currently slowly falling closer and closer to Neptune. Right now, its just a matter of time before it gets too close to Neptune to the point where Neptune's immense gravity will rip it to shreds.

This was a collaboration between 3Ds Max and Photoshop CS5
I don't like using stock photos, so I completely painted Neptune's texture from scratch while looking at a real photograph of it for reference.

Hey I absolutely love the planet and the star-scape!

A couple things I would do though to edit it (and possibly make it look even better!) is

1) blur or blend the rings to make them look less fragmented and edgy in the curves.

2) make the inner white part of the ring a bit transparent.

If you were going for that look, then don't mind me! Just some of my 2-cents, hope you don't mind some constructive opinions :)
Thanks man. Think I'm just gonna leave it the way it is though. Too lazy to go back and fix it. lol Nothing's perfect. I also notice that you like hillsong and switchfoot. =P I actually just saw switchfoot live for the second time. I got to hang out with Jon Foreman. lol also, hope you got Hillsong United's new album. It's absolutely amazingggg. lol

Yeah man, no problem. I understand what you mean ^^

But yes, Switchfoot and Hillsong both ROCK. I just got Switchfoot's new album Vice Verses (and I'm totally jealous of your recent experience!) and have yet to stop listening to it! I haven't gotten Hillsong's new album yet, but pretty much everything they write is made of gold (like Switchfoot).
Yeahh seriously man. Well when I saw them in the city, (NYC), we didn't know it at the time, but it was the album release party. lol It wasn't suppose to come out for another week and they were giving out signed albums that night for Vice Verses. It was pretty freakin' awesome. Jon Foreman's an awesome guy to hang out with. lol
