Visuals for a fantasy series

Hello,
I need some help. I'd love to do this myself, but frankly my computer sucks.
I'm writing a novel that I'm probably going to set on an earth-like planet orbiting a very-blue gas giant.
How this behaves throughout the day will affect the cultures in my book deeply, so it's very important I have a clear idea.
Basic info: blue gas giant orbiting a sun-like star, with an earth-like planet orbiting it in turn.
The below video would be GREAT except it isn't blue enough, it shouldn't have rings, and it's a binary system. Also the nebula is distracting, the starfield is too visible....

If anyone is willing to help me put together a visual similar to the video but with my specifications, I'd be deeply grateful, and would at least include an acknowledgment in the book WHEN it gets published (I'm staying positive smile
I probably won't get rich off it, but I'll remember you if I do wink

If you want to help, I'll be happy to provide you with any further information.

This image isn't perfect but I hope it's something close to what you're looking for. A few more pictures of the planet are ahead of the one I linked too!

Those are great pictures! Would you be able to make a video from the moon? Is the moon's orbit on the same plane as the giant's?

Regardless, thanks!
