My entry.

This is the political capital of the United Planets. A centre of power because here the fates of billions of citizens are decided. The artificial structure around the planet houses shipyards and is haven to incoming and outgoing ships from all over the galaxy. Luxury hotels and casinos attract the wealthy and powerful. Living here is expensive. On the planet itself (no one remembers its name any more, it's just the Planet) living is not as easy. The megacities are crowded places where crime flourishes. The dream of the unfortunate citizens living in these places is to buy a ticket to "Heaven" (that is how they call the rings). It is said "once on the rings the galaxy is your playground".

Done in 3ds Max and Photoshop.

Enjoy and good luck to all contestants. :)

very impressive. the only thing that bugs me are those skyscrapers(?) on the rings. personaly i always prefered a series of large starbases built in orbit around a planet.

you need to make a tutorial for how to do those city thingys on the planets surface. ^^

Thanks a lot. There's room for improvement, I might get back to that when I'm back from my parents. Haven't seen them in nearly a year. :)

Very new and unique ring ideas, the concept is a classic tale of "living on the bottom, wanting for the high life" (I actually think of the animated movie Shark Tale in such scenarios :fish:) yet it has a new and original sci-fi inspired idea :idea: But I'm glad it's not real, since I would be one of the losers who live son the planet itself, always bitching about those who live on the rings but secretly wishing I was one of them :lol:

Thanks. :) Yeah, I was inspired by William Gibson and some other sci-fi Authors. I guess I'd be a hacker type, living on the planet, making a living by stealing data and stuff. ;)
