Terra Nova, with Asteroid X57

This is technically Mass Effect fan art, although admittedly it’s probably not that obvious from looking at it.

I note that the galaxy map entry for Terra Nova is somewhat different from its appearance in-game. The galaxy map describes it as being “banded” with an equatorial desert, presumably in light of its rather-high average temperature (56°C). However, the planet you see above during ‘Bring Down the Sky’ doesn’t seem to have any such surface feature.

The in-game scenery is pretty, and I have no objections to it from an artistic PoV, but I thought it might be interesting to draw a background-consistent version of the planet. So that’s what is shown below.

Here it is:

There’s also a higher-res version here, at dA, as always.
