This is funny, in a game I'm making called Adrift, the ship you're on is rapidly approaching a planet called Dau Vatu, and this looks oddly like said planet from a distance. Only thing is Dau Vatu only has one known moon.

Funny coincidence :D Good luck with your game!

For what platform are you making it by the way?

Uh, PC, but it'll be a freeware game. Why?

This is eerie yet beautiful... and it might just be my eyes, but the planet kind of looks as though it's underwater. :)

its beautiful, and it feels i've never seen the colors before. i think the starfield might need a little more work, though. I suggest that you add you reduce the amount of small stars and add some larger stars (but not too many!) with focus below and above the planets. But still i love the atmosphere and the colors! :clap: I hope i helped, and the part where i suggest you to place the larger stars above and under the planet is only my personal taste. :)

For whatever reason, this picture is hypnotizing. I can't stop looking at it. It has simplicity and at the same time a great amount of detail.
This is one of the best space-pics I've ever seen :)

It looks pretty good, one problem I see is that the stars are being brushed over, making it look as if theres fog in front of them...

Not sure if that was intentional or not?

I love the painterly swirls surrounding the planet, makes the moon look like it was formed from spinning out of the planet or something.

I have a weird and wildly-imaginative... imagination.

And I love the lighting. It completes the epic look.
