I didn't really set out to update Cosmic Shoals when I started this project. Rather I set out to model a globular cluster (and some of that is still in the image) but the story "grew in the telling".

Technical note: In the past I have used Zbrush for "landforms" such as these (see "Circumpolar) but this time I chose to use Vue's built in "symmetrical terrains". By adjusting the clipping range you can make all sorts of interesting shapes without the memory overhead of importing .OBJs.

Jessie told me this one reminded her of some of my earlier work, and I tend to think this is because of the lack of any vegetation or the other objects I tend to scatter around using Vue's ecosystems. I tried adding some "alien flora" here and there but nothing seemed to look right (given the scale of the scene). I may yet play around with that but I thought it looked nice enough to share as is. Hope you enjoy it!
