Finally joined up here so I can post my art, though not sure how many fo you have already seen this? :)
Lost, alone, an escaped mul slave finds shelter in the ruins of some ancient city, where a spring keeps him alive...but something else as well!
Done with Vue6 Infinite, Poser and postwork in PaintShopPro :)
Alas, I cannot post the full pics here, only links, limited to a very small image size, here, sorry!

Ya, I saw it on the WotC site and had to post a "Fantastic!" comment. Truly great work to give a visual sense of the setting. Please post some more!

Oh, and welcome to the Piazza!

Hugin,
Thanks, hello, and will do! :D
The visuals of Dark Sun and Spelljammer I always adored.

Agathokles,

The overpainting you did in Photoshop (I assume it was in photoshop) gives it a fantastic look and feel to it.

Thanks ! :)
aye it did, been trying to get something as good as that for ages ;)
The book cover art and simialr of the 60's/70s often had a look I loved, so was trying for that.

It's not over painting, it's tweaking things a bit in PaintShopPro - does same stuff as Photoshop, I have both, I just find PaintSHopPro much more pleasant to use, just photoshop has a few things PaintShopPro doesn't.

And then using two "Plugins".
First I ran "Brilliance and Warmth", which I got with a camera I bought, oddly enough, to make it brighter, warmer and more orange.
Then I ran "Clarify", one of the "XERO" plugin suite (Which is free) which really makes it stand out.

So they made the pic go "SPOING!" :D

Silverblade, I must say I like the "Simple" version the most. Keep up the wonderful work.

Great work (as usual).

I like all of these. I think the "orange sky" one fits in best with Dark Sun, but I do like elements of the "blue sky" version.

I think the "blue sky" one has more surface detail. (I definatly count an extra cacti in there.) And I think it is easier to see the "blue sky" moons and clouds. But apart from that, I prefer the orange sky colouration. It looks a lot more alien.

Ta mate! :)
I took out one cacti as it was exact same as the other, lol ;)
the "solid growth" technology in Vue, means you can create many plants (forests, gardens, football fields of gras whatever), none will be the same, but I think I used a "mesh" 3d polygon model for that cacti which are fixed in shape.
