Some mysterious force had dislodged Discovery from its resting place, in the L2 point between Jupiter and Io. Now it was in a rapidly decaying orbit about the sulfurous maelstrom of Io. Leonov had arrived barely in time to save the magnificent derelict. IN it, they hoped, many mysteries which had haunted mankind for a decade, would finally be solved.

Rendered in Lightwave 8.5. Special thanks to Sean Kennedy (akaTREYBOR) for his beautiful Discovery model.
Thanks for having a look!

Very cinematic. Great work. Still like your Leonov better than the movie's.

Another great image in the series!
Great POV.
I really like the detail of the eruption on Io and the back lighting form the moon onto Discovery.

If I had an oh-so-minor nit, it would be the smoothness of Io. It's about the size of the moon and some of the mountains are about 50,000 feet. A bit of a bump on the sphere would be appropriate (no, I don't have an Io bump map either).

I really like this composition and while Geirla may be technically correct on the Io surface, artistically you don't want it to visually compete too much, so I'm fine with your treatment. Your sulfur dusted Discovery came out perfectly and I appreciate the fact you took the time to point the Leonov's comm antennae Earthward (or at least sunward, which is presumably the right direction). It's another creative interpretation of Clarke's novel. This whole series has had a fresh approach to it and doesn't just feel like the movie with a swapped out ship.
