I always had this childish feeling of making solar system planets in 3D. Looking at each one puts me into a huge wonder and awe. You can find pictures of these planets online, But this is the space poetry coming from my vision. This project is minted on Tezos blockchain and originally on Hicetnunc platform and is also available on OBKT.com.
The collection starts with Planet Mercury, the closest planet to the sun, the smallest planet in the solar system. Then there is Planet Venus which once was heaven that turned into a kind of hell. Mother Earth is the next one which is our home in the universe and we should take care of her and its inhabitants. Luna, the moon of Planet Earth is the first celestial object humanity ever landed on and It is spiraling away from earth by about the width of two fingers every year.
The collection continues with Mars, our planet’s neighbor, populated with robots until it will be colonized by humans. After that, there is Planet Jupiter, the gas giant with a large gravity that protects the earth from the impact of orbiting comets. Europa, one of the moons of planet Jupiter has an ocean beneath its surface and it is one of the most likely places we may find life outside the earth.
Then Planet Saturn is the most distant planet that can be seen with the naked eye from Earth. Its neighbor, Planet Uranus, is the first planet found using a telescope. Planet Neptune is the next planet and It is so far away that we couldn’t see it until we became aware of its existence through mathematical prediction.
As a child, I became acquainted with Pluto as a planet until it was reclassified from a planet to a dwarf planet in 2006.
I have created these planets using Cinema 4D and Octane Render and polished the final look with After Effects. I have used the latest NASA textures for each planet, but the final result may not look the exact same as the actual appearance of the planet. However, these are my poetic interpretations to describe the beauty and wonder of the solar system.
