Gallery of Inspiration

Curb AppealWhat will the overall look of your planet be?

Think about aesthetics and try not to go for the obvious : saturn-esque rings and asteroid belts are so last millenium!

And dont forget that size matters

First impressionsOnce a visitor has passed the upper atmosphere of the planet, what can they expect to see?

Think about land masses, seas, weather patterns and the quality of light

Period FeaturesNow we are getting down to the nitty gritty why would anybody want to own, or visit your planet?

What does your client want from their planet? Is it a refuge from their own polluted and war torn planet? A second holiday home? Or is it a money making investment?
