Hey folks,

This is only slightly Lightwave related, but I wrote and am illustrating an astronomy-based children's book called I Flew My Kite to the Moon, and I thought people here might be interested. I did technically use Lightwave to render a few reference images for some of the planets to make sure the rings and atmospheric bands were in the right place, but then everything was hand painted.

I've got a bunch of other pictures and samples at the kickstarter project I set up for it here:
