Contrast this to Giedi Prime: You’re up high in the hills, looking down on an unspoilt coastal plain and dhows out on the sea beyond it.
Caladan has been done before. I wanted something that wasn’t a rehash.
Everything screams serenity. Peace. The colour scheme is all cool, soothing colours. Earthy tones. I tried a few different things: I had somebody in the foreground looking down, then a fishing village, and then a teeny-tiny Castle Caladan.
This was fun to make. I wound up learning a few new things about perspective.
