Well, instead of looking for a job, I made this (and this, this, and this) using blender.  Its too bad blender is bankrupt, the tool is incredibly powerful for only being a 1.6MB download (win32).  I didn't use any texture maps, only builtin material and texture generating tools.

In order to make the scene just a little better, I need to illuminate the rings from the bottom (perhaps make them one-sided) and add some way of telling the foreground waves from the background.  I want it to be subtle though, because I like how, when used as a background, it doesn't clutter the center of the screen.  Also the clouds on the ringed planet could be a little better, perhaps stretched around the planet, and the shadow could have a slightly better position.
