It looks great overall, but the thing that my eyes train to is the brush texture not scaling to the curvature of the planet to help indicate it's form.

I'll second that. What I'll usually do for a planet is layer a bunch
of different types of texture paintings on a sphere in 3D. This
gives you the curvature automatically.

You have a nice sense of lighting! This reminds me a little bit of
the shots of Cylon occupied Caprica in "Battlestar Galactica".

Thanks dentsinger and rrische for the tip on the brush texture scaling.

I will try and work a little more of the curvature of the planet.
