The land is on the sky...
The storage house of life is in the heart of Ætheris. Plants and animals long extinct on the surface still survive here.
I always wondered what a hollow world might look like. I mapped a sphere for the sky dome and used NASA 'Blue Marble' images to paint the terrain/sky in Deep Paint 3D and PhotoShop. The foreground cloud is Dick Scherzinger’s Cumulus Tower A. (It worked so well as a default that I didn’t tamper with it.) The birds are from Noggin’s Songbirds pack and the trees were in my Vue library.

Well done. Looks really interesting to see earth where sky should be. :-) Like I commented in the Vue forum thread, capturing the vastness and roundness were the most difficult tasks for me when I tried something similar. I think you captured the vastness well but not the roundness. I mean, in this image the sky could be just a normal terrain above the camera, not necessarily the opposite end of a sphere, and you wouldn't notice much difference. That's what I meant with being difficult to capture the roundness. Maybe you can play a bit more with the camera and see if you get a better pov. :-)
Kinda reminds me of Journey to the center of the Earth, when the adventures came out of the caverns and saw the under world ocean ! I once read a sci-fi book where the planet was a hyperbolic, I bet that would also be very tricky to create...hmmm Well done & ~Cheers~
