Death of Triton by edlo Death of Triton by edlo
*Now this image is available as Hi quality print in my gallery at [link] endless framing options, paper, finishes etc. Thanks.

First piece done for the Experience the Planets project [link] lead by Greg Martin himself. This piece took more than a month of sketching planing painting and re-painting with the amazing crit and input from all ETP artists and mainly Greg himself, the learning experience was priceless and the result was very satisfying. Done from scratch 100% pure photoshop.

To grab wallies of this piece and all the others visit the project site [link]
Thanks for your time and your clicking efforts :P

Like Phobos at Mars, Triton's low orbit
around its parent planet will result in its
destruction some 3.6 billion years in the future.
How exactly it will meet its end is still a matter of debate.
Some speculate that the moon will succumb to increasing gravitational stress, leaving a path of debris along its orbit
as it disintegrates to form a new - albeit temporary- ring formation around Neptune.

I'm actually writing a short story about this event and how humanity will react to it. It's called Evacuation. Nice drawing by the way.

Really amazing piece this one. Gives you the scope of the size of space with the broken planet against the Gas giant. Great detail.

Indeed its structural integrity is frail and will crumble in the future. Though, 3.6 billion years is a loooooooong time. We'll either all be dead, or moved elsewhere in the galaxy. Earth's resources will be depleted long before we can view this spectacle. Awesome piece, the destruction is very detailed.

One could imagine the cold moon sounding like shattering glass on an epic scale :O Triton id probably the most interesting moon of neptune, especially since I heard something about black snow that jets from the surface at times...shame it will be destroyed, but in 3.6 billions years, I'm sure we would have found much more interesting stuff anyway :alien:
