My entry for the weekly challenge, inspired by Terry Pratchett's books about the discworld.

At first I wanted to do the discworld from above (the circle would match perfectly), but then I noticed that it has to be a scene, sooo it came to this.

These were my references:

It was a lot of work and the time was quite short, so there might still be some mistakes, such as too much dithering.

Woo Discworld. Nice use of green on the Elephants.

I really liked your entry.   It's somewhat of an unfair bias toward elephants and turtles... flying space turtles.  What can I say?

Ugh. I've searched and though I was sure Cori Celesti could be seen from space, none of the art has it. I'm going crazy :D

Great job!

@ Jeremy: But the discworld isn't based on science but on magic :)

Perkele (Level 4 Murderer) @ 5/11/2009 07:26

Thanks to everyone

@ Jeremy: You're right about the moon, damn it. Euh, do you mean Cori Celesti?

tomic (Level 11 Admiral) @ 5/11/2009 04:54

seems like the turtle is floating around the sun. blasphemy! =)

jeremy (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 5/11/2009 01:36

Voted for this on principle :D (It being well pixeled is a plus)

A couple of minor flaws: The moon doesn't look very moon-y and its light source doesn't sem to be the sun. Also, isn't the Mount... thingymajig meant to be absolutely massive?

 Very nice! The turtle is very well shaded, especially.

Captain Kong (Level 1 Private) @ 5/10/2009 11:54

I don't really know anything about the books this is from, but it looks great. 

This picture makes me want to read the books now.

Cloud_Ratha (Level 1 Private) @ 5/10/2009 11:36

 Awesome stuff! You even remembered the tiny sun and moon! Love it!

FrostedMayhem (Level 4 Murderer) @ 5/10/2009 10:18
