Flat Earth for "LARGEST"

This still of the Earth with clouds is intended to be wrapped to a sphere. The look (i.e., appearance of the clouds, coloration of the ocean, etc) was art-directed to meet the needs of a particular production.

This visualization was created in support of the Science On a Sphere film called "LARGEST" which is about Jupiter. This still image matches several other Earth apperances from the film.
