nice usage of Astra's crater brushes, came out real nice, one question though if you don't mind, is this color the spectra derived color? (haven't looked at Makemake's spectra derived color's in a very long time)

I got the color from a chart that fyr02 made on various TNO's.

HIP 65426 b is a point source even on the best images we can get from JWST, so this is almost certainly not the case in reality.

You are absolutely right. BUT I'm developing the texture tools for the future, when we will have few pixels wide direct images of exoplanets.

I think we'll have to wait at least a few decades, if not hundreds of years, for that.

Well I would like to simulate that FEELING and it is fantastic to have an exoplanet texture (even if it is just a fantasy).

I would rather not have this feeling than try doing this with data where absolutely no information can be found, and any information found is completely fictitous.

I would rather speculate as to what a planet may look like (hence Project Sisyphus) instead of trying to find any evidence for what it looks like in places where there is no evidence.

Not really fictitious, I just used the wrong data from the same star system.

there is no existing data appropriate for this kind of work, therefore any maps drawn from pictures relating to HIP 65426 b, which will invariably show as a point source, are probably fictitious

From a hypothetical gas giant from a system I'm (slowly) working on...The texture comes from gaseous-giganticus.

The rings I made on my own. Probably will make them a little less opaque. Sorry about not including a haze.
As far as the GG texture; I had one originally for this planet, but it got deleted. HOWEVER, I still had a picture of it in a planetary line-up for a related art/book project. So, using GIMP, I selected a pole to pole section, ran it thru GG, and there it is. I also found out (from the program creator,) it's often best to stop GG from completing the process. He said it goes from really ugly, to really nice, to really crazy and ugly by the end of it. So, I started doing that and have been very happy with what is coming out. (I guess that's my tip for using GG).

I was worried it looks too much like Saturn.
