The Great Cycle by HellcatF6F The Great Cycle by HellcatF6F
Coalesced from the ashes of dead stars, a young planet orbits within the accretion disc of a T-Tauri Star, building itself up from asteroids captured by its gravity. Entire seas of molten salts and other minerals cover much of the planet's surface, kept molten by extensive volcanic activity and the heat released from each of the impacts. Despite this heat, clouds of ice crystals can be seen at extremely high altitudes.

A comet can be seen arcing across the sky, seeding the young star system with water, complex hydrocarbons and organic molecules; the stuff of life.

Originally made at 3840 x 2160, then scaled down to 1080p for a super-sampling effect.

WOW
Utterly amazing. Just. Speechless. WOW.

The best part is the realism, IMO. I can really see it...
