Saturn by JonHrubesch Saturn by JonHrubesch
This is a commission done for miss-tada.deviantart.com for a project she is work on.

This is the Saturn concept. Floating land masses in the clouds with party cities built into them. I added massive directional fins of a sort to the sides of the floating mountains to give you a sense that they have a bit of control over where these behemoths travel. The floating mountain in the upper left would be the main castle.

This was a  commission.  miss-tada.deviantart.com didn't want me to add in spaceships to the images.  I guess even looking as low tech as the image of Earth is compared to Venus and Saturn, it is a single home like that of the Venus image, as I understand it, for one of her characters.

Earth may look low tech but I envisioned flying ships would land on the platforms above the lower house.  I would've like to have seen some people and ships depicted in the Earth image but she didn't want them shown.  I suppose it would be like the Wookie planet of Kashyyyk in Star Wars or something like that.

With just a touch of Dr. Seuss.  ;)

Thanks!

Careful when drawing ellipses, they're somewhat irregular.

Otherwise, I love this image. +1 for originality and audacity!

Thanks.  I had just said to another individual that I hadn't really spent the time on this that it deserves.  It would be super cool to see this built in a 3d program and painted over.  I could have just used the circle shape to clean up my ellipses too.  I would still like to see a cleaner version of this myself but that would definitely take a bit more time to do for sure.  I always say I learn a little something with each new painting and with this I think that is to respect the ellipse.  The eye gets annoyed when you don't clean that shit up!  Ha ha.

Also I feel that Dr. Seuss could sue me for stealing his architectural shapes... ;)
