The western waters region of the continent of Maroque on the planet Mainstream is a maze of wide and shallow rivers, natural lakes, canals and dams which weave through a landscape of low hills and rocky outcrops, thick with stands of white staff, the heavy scent of uloss blossom and the occasional copse of tipple berry trees. Jade glitterwings cross the open skies between the marshes where they breed, looking like giant dragonflies.
When the famous poet and novelist Anna Esquelle fled from Blue Home in 2793 she established a celebrated Retreat in the western waters, a number of self consciously rustic dwellings that became the centre of an important literary school. Here we see one of the lodges, with Mainstream's companion planet Greenlush, high in the sky overhead.
[In addition to the vendor credits below the glitterwings (aka dragonflies) are from DAZ. I made the surface of Greenlush in Wonderdraft and then used spherical mapping in Terragen to wrap it round the planet. Still plenty to learn about procedurally generated planets but I'm fairly happy with this one]
