Trying another composition

Trying another composition

Nightwind class survey scout approaching a long lost world.
Test of my planet generation shader, as well as a volumetric sun, as a workaround so I don't have to kriff around with super-mega-annoying compositing software. Sorry for the lack of the usual microfic backstory for this image. I'm too damned tired from grief, insomnia and exhaustion from taking care of suddenly necessary tasks. I lost a very dearly-loved family member to a sudden illness at 0235 Monday. I may be posting more often, as art is sometimes a refuge from pain. No promises, though.
