Habitable Moon System by XSereneiX Habitable Moon System by XSereneiX
To see the whole story of my art collection, please check out my Journal "My Science Fiction Story for my Art Collection." [link]

For textures I used from NASA Visible Earth to help me out.
VISIBLE EARTH NASA [link]
Many have portrayed a habitable world to be a planet, but a habitable world can be a moon of a planet.
The moon in the picture is a somewhat Earth like world named Sulia. There are forests, volcanos, oceans, deserts and mountain ranges. However due to the eccentrically orbit around the gas giant, massive tidal waves wash across the expanses of this moon rendering most of the land into what essentially is a giant beach. Almost all of the landmasses are a beach desert thousands of miles across.

Sulia is one of my favorite moons, I have done several scenes on it.
Check out [link], floating in a hot air balloon through one of it's canyons, and [link] to check out it's wild seas splashing on a rocky coast of an island.

67 Light Years from Earth in the Sunatta moon system.

You have just proven Avatar's Pandora unscientific. Nice!

Hehe :P 

The issue I take with Pandora is the method of travel uses up extreme levels of energy. Recently, Nasa has stated war drive technology might be possible, which would allow for 10x light speed by warping space time using only about 900 pounds of pure energy. (about the energy the US uses in a year) oppose to the extreme levels of energy uses in going near light speed using propulsion anti matter rockets.

My issue with it is the massive tidal waves that should be washing across the planet's surface.

I would agree judging by the eccentricity or the moon's orbit, there should still be plenty of green patches, bu also plenty of golden beach color around the shores.

I love artwork with side info/stories. Great job on the gas giant textures. I should try out the liquify option i guess ;)
