Artistic concept of the surface of Ceres - the dwarf planet orbiting in the asteroids belt - and some props just for fun.
It would be a loop animation, except for some Internet Explorer :noes: if so, right click > active loop and play.
Made with 3D Studio Max and After Effects. No stocks. I drew every single pixel of the scene.

Better but static view here --> streincorp.deviantart.com/art/…

Ricostruzione artistica della superficie del pianeta minore Cerere, orbitante nella fascia di asteroidi tra Marte e Giove.
Solo l'Internet Explorer lento a caricarlo e non sempre attivato il loop T_T: basta cliccare col destro e attivare loop (o ciclo) e play (o ripeti) oppure usare qualsiasi altro browser decente

Excellent animation and very convincing concept considering the currently vague imagery available. As it is only about 6 weeks now until higher than Hubble quality images will come available from NASA's DAWN probe I would like you to contact the DAWN team, as I have done recently, to inspire them to allow artists / illustrators to put forward their concepts for what 1Ceres may appear like. This said I look forward to - in the not to distant future seeing real images from DAWN. Its going to be an exciting year in 2015 when it comes to firstly 1Ceres and later Pluto getting a close fly by. I have recently up dated my own concept for how 1Ceres may appear once DAWN is in orbit.

This is gorgeous! Very good job with creating this animation. I have liked Ceres since many many years ago learned about its existence and also its former status as a planet. I gues it was also one reason why I was not so surprised about what happened to Pluto in 2006. I think I could point out that Ceres has orbital period of 4.6 not 4.9 years. Anyway this is very very good.
