EDIT: Thanks for your submissions, the contest is now closed!
I see we got a few decent last-minute entries, so the choice is going to be hard. cosmicbound
and I are arguing about the winners right now
we should come to a conclusion soon, though!
Stay tuned for the results!
We are back with a new event! Unique Planets
is the new contest for all members of our group Space-Revived
The special part: Unique Planets is a double theme,
meaning we will have two categories
Our solar system has only eight planets, and we think we know them pretty well (at least from far away). But our sun is just one of many in the Milky Way, and our galaxy in turn is just one in a plethora of so many uncountable worlds out there. We literally have no clue what planets could await us in those other distant galaxies.
Unique conditions can create gorgeous alien landscapes with spectacular wildlife. But instead of lush and colorful, your planet could also be harsh and uninhabitable. Or, if you want to go really crazy, consider that ordinary matter (everything we can see with our current technology) makes up just 5% of the entire universe! What if the laws of physics work a bit differently from what we would expect for those other 95%?
Your task is to create a unique planet in space. Special terrain and living conditions are shown in the unique texture and shape of your planet. Or did advanced technology and terraforming change the planet altogether?
Proximity to the sun, atmosphere density, intelligent life -- many factors can shape life and landscape on the planet itself. This is your up-close vision of a unique world. Perhaps inhabited by alien lifeforms, or completely uninhabitable?

Keep in mind that using premade planets or telescope imagery can reduce your chances of winning to 0! Challenge yourself and create your own!
These gems should get your creative juices flowing.
