In April 2009, after reading an expert tutorial on how to create realistic worlds (I would link to it, if I could remember which one I specifically used. If you think you may know which one I used, please leave a comment below, and I will give appropriate credit, where it is due.) I decided to give it a shot. But after creating the amazing landscape and orbiting planet, all I could see was an amazing background instead of a finished piece. So next came a random character concept painted over top of it. This character allowed me an amazing opportunity to play around with textures.
