After the fairly successful Horsehead Nebula I dived into a bit of planetary art this time the clouds of Jupiter were the subject. This took a fair bit of time this piece as the colours and patterns had to be shaped and merged and all of that good stuff. I’m quite pleased with this one though as I’ve learned from it – it doesn’t have to be exactly like the reference picture – I’m merely creating an intrerpretation.



Let me know what you think, thumbs up or down

There’s only one with this piece… don’t think I’ve short changed you here!

      1. Into the lockdown, out of the lockdown. I lost the overview on all the lockdowns and reliefs of the countries around us… lol! However, I am glad you can focus on a wider horizon now. Simon.

  1. Great artwork! I don’t think NASA gets much better views? Well…maybe a little. Did you use a photo as a reference? This planet’s clouds and rings are fascinating in that they don’t all fly in the same direction and some seem to just spin in place like a perpetual tornado. Whatever or whoever created this monster had a weird sense of style, art or was just plain snockered when it happened.
