A civilization was unfortunate to get stranded at this desolate location, frequently rocked by powerful solar emissions. They have been spared so far, but this time the eruptions are notably powerful. Who will know if they have survived, once the dust settles.
Much inspired by the exceptional space artist known as burning-liquied here on dA, but unfortunately he appears to be inactive since a year ago.
I think this came out pretty good, there are some flaws which need to be fixed, and I think I should spend more time on the upper planet. Found out a new technique to get better planet rings, they are now so quick to do. Will see if I can improve them to be comparable to what burning-liquid did. Just need to get better specular reflections to those.
