Terraforming Mars Pt. 3

My Terraforming of Mars continues. 


My first version from my other post
looks sad now.   I have made a lot of changes since the second version I posted it, however it doesn’t appear that much different.   There have been many alterations.   I have added more mountains.  There is a lot of different land elements going on.   One thing that I didn’t mention before is the oceans.  The ocean I actually put over the Mars surface so on the areas close to the land mass there is more of a blending going on so there is a sense of depth.  Another  element to this is the color of the ocean is lighter closer to the land masses. 

There was also a seam on the either side of the planet it was hard to see, but now it is gone


I have also done a version with populated areas.  Cities etc.  This I may revisit due to scale issues.  Although the scale will be an issue since Mars is 53% the diameter of Earth and the land mass of Earth is equal to that of the entire surface of Mars.


While doing my Mars I also went a created a polluted Earth.  I will revisit this again also.  It’s something I’ve done before. I’d like to spend more time getting it right.

    You know I like terraformed Mars. 🙂

    The “future Earth” reminds me of how they had the planet looking in Wall-E, except without all of those satellites cluttering orbital space.
