Titan Unveiled
"Represents my efforts to prepare original Huygens mosaics for use as a texture map for a 3D rendering of the region, using the same map as a displacement map and assuming lighter regions were higher. The Huygens probe was also modeled and rendered, for an earlier animation project. Extensive hand painting in Photoshop was applied across the entire image."

I agree with both the above comments, Mr. Davis deserves another Emmy. His work is first rate!

Don Davis is probably one of the best science illustrators out there. The attention to detail he pours into his work is outstanding!

This is probably the most realistic of the artist impressions on these pages.
