I am fascinated by this little moon, messing around with ring particles. When I decided to paint Daphnis I knew that it probably looks nothing like this. It must have a thick layer of ring particles covering it’s surface and erasing any craters, or other interesting features this little body might have. But recent Cassini pictures revealed that Daphnis is quite diverse. It does not have any visible craters, but it’s not a featureless sphere either.
