Personal Project - Digital Matte Painting

Here I wanted to generate an eerie feel of an distant planet that is recognizable as alien, yet unfamiliar. This is reflected by the choice of the palette. To create the planet I stretched several layers of manual and procedural texture over a sphere to simulate clouds, and added incidence shaders to vary the opacity, giving the scene a more natural feel. In the below panels I've painted the background galaxy, as well as generated the lens flare beaming off the sun. The icy asteroids are created using instanced particles, as well as 'face cards' for more remote elements.
