Hmmm...a while back we found an image on here titled "A New Beginning - Hope".  It's almost exactly the same image you have here.  Same woman and boy standing in front of the same mountain range.  The artist that did it used slightly different water than you have, and his sky and planet are different...although it is also an Earth-like planet with a ring system...tilted a little more than you have here.  We thought this guy was an original.  We even asked him to come up with a similar looking cover for a CD we were about to put out.  He came back with something that looked really cheesy...nothing like the image we'd found that lead us to him.  Then all of a sudden he claimed his computer went down and he lost all his files and couldn't do anything else for us.  Luckily, we got someone else to do our CD cover.  I can not think of the guy's name or I'd point you to him on here.  But now I see that he just ripped off your idea.

Oh, I'm sorry that happened to you, there are many people who love to copy others, be careful. :nod:

Wish we'd found your image first, because we probably would have contracted you to do our cover artwork.  I really like your image here.  It was almost exactly what we were originally looking for...except for putting some astronauts in the place of the woman and boy, and probably not having an Earth-like terrain that they would be standing on...but more like a moon...something that would require wearing space suits. 

I like how you provided the links to the original stocks.  I would never have guessed the woman and boy were separate stocks in this.

Oh, and by the way...I found the link to the image that guy did:
(you will notice how it's similar to the hand drawing that I had made below, which is why we originally selected this guy to use...little did we know his design was not actually his):

A New Beginning by kubikolos


Just in case you're curious, here's the image my band finally wound up with as our cover:

As it turned out, after sending our drawing to several different graphic artists, our drummer mentioned that he worked with a lady who did graphic design for their company, so he got me in touch with her, and she wound up doing our actual CD/digipak layout, along with a good bit of input from myself and the rest of the band.  She found some of the stocks, and I found some of them.  I purchased the rights to use them all, and she put everything together like we wanted it.

(as you see we just went with an Earth-like image, rather than a ringed world like in my drawing...this was partly due to the lack of being able to find the right stock for the image...as we wanted a world that looked similar, but not the same as Earth):

and here's the back cover
(we had her do a little customizing on the lander):

AFTERLIFE - Brave New World (back cover) by mythiac

and here's my original crude (and I emphasize "crude") drawing that I submitted to various artists to see what they thought they might be able to come up with:

 A beautiful new world, with an amazing view of a...new day dawning, or a new day ending, either way it's breathtaking. I love the coloring and the way certain objects pop out, to me anyway, when my eyes are wandering trying to take everything in.  +fav

I hope one day man will be able to set foot on a planet that's this beautiful in real life and hopefully our own home planet will still be here when it does.
