Mars - just add water by hoevelkamp Mars - just add water by hoevelkamp
Hi @ all.

I did this a few times already, a terraformed Mars. But this is the my most recent one. One with which I'm really satisfied. And since I created it using public data and maps, I make it also public available.

This is Stock. It's free to use in every form you like. The only little thing I'm asking for is: Please link to this post and give me credit.

Beware, the file is 18mb heavy. Inside the downloaded archive you'll find a 4000x4000 .png and 4000x4000 .jpg.

Have fun!

impressive you kept the real texture present but i am not too keen about the shadow of the planet it needs a bit of blurring

I work for a graphic design site and am putting together a quick post on Mars-inspired art in honor of the Curiosity landing today. I came across this searching DeviantArt and can't wait to put your stuff up.

I would bet my life on it that Mars once looked almost exactly like that, millions of years ago! Except, maybe it was a little more rust-red...

Amazon isn't available in this country, i'm afraid. Also, there is no good heightfield of venus out there, most use a lowres heightfield and make some changes to it.

Whoops, i meant venus, also i wasn't referring to acctualy terraforming, i meant if you could make venus the same way you did this? Also, i'm thinking o buying those books, but i can't find them anywhere! :(

hoevelkamp Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2011   Digital Artist
Well, should be possible. Just had to look for high res elevation maps and stuff. For Mars thats not a problem, lots of maps out there, for Venus I don't know. Might be a good project for the future. :nod:

Its a damn shame, have you tried Amazon? I found them there in a matter of minutes. ;) Well, on the German [link] Amazon at least. Those books are really worth every penny you've to pay for them.

hoevelkamp Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2011   Digital Artist
Well, you could... with lots and lots of time and the necessary resources. I would recommend the "Red, Green and Blue Mars" series by Kim Stanley Robinson. It's a story about terraforming and colonizing Mars with a good scientific background and lots of interesting characters. A good read for a Sci-Fi fan. ;)

This is sexy. I think the terrain needs to be lightened up a bit, seem too dark

Hi there!
This is one of your best yet! I have all ways wonder what Mars would look like if terra formed which leads me to a question. Would you ever be willing to a picture of what Olympus Mons would look like if it erupted in the modern area? What I mean is if it were photographed from one of the above orbiting satellites in a major eruption as if Mars was waking up and not as dead as thought?
Just an off the wall idea, Thanks if you do consider it <;->

Valles Marineris must have been breath taking in the times it was filled with water. I truly wish I could just glimpse it back than. But it left the most beautiful scar on the planet's surface I ever seen.
