Finally wrapped up the Moana poster! Here’s a digital painting I did for the upcoming Disney movie. It was a fun project and I’m really happy with how it turned out! I’m glad I got to show the process from start to finish. Super excited for the movie and I hope you guys enjoy the artwork!

The curvature of the Earth is illuminated by a variety of airglow layers in orange, green, and red, while breathtaking stars in one of the inner spiral arms of the Milky Way Galaxy can be clearly seen in the background.

On Earth, a lightning storm is visible through an equatorial cloud sheet providing even further beauty to this image.
