I was working on this for 1.5 years and I am not yet fully satisfied. Maybe I will post an improved version in year or two
All Earth textures (diffuse, bump, clouds, spectacular...) are from NASA Visible Earth project, base for the nebula is from NASA too. Rendered in 3DS Max with finalRender renderer, combined in Adobe Photoshop CS3. Original resolution is 6000*4500 (I can post different resolution wallpaper upon request).
Click "Download" to get the 1600*1200 wallpaper.
If you like it, please leave a heart-warming comment. TY
