The planet itself is a photomanipulation - distorted textures with some lighting applied, basically. I did paint the detail around the nebula, even though I couldn't really paint at all when I did this image - that's why I started off with space, it's by far the easiest theme to paint. ;)

That's one of the best sun I've seen, and of course the planets and stars look great, too.
At some parts it is just difficult to tell wether it is an asteroid or a star, but I guess that's how it is in reality.

Very nice looking image, the only thing that's strange is the fact that stars are huge in real life.. and some are infront of the planet on the shadow. Which kinda doesn't make sense XD.

Awesome apart from that, love the texture :D

They're reflective asteroids. ;) This has been argued before - check the large image to see what I mean.

For the criticism, add some life in it would be cool. Ships or whatever, something build by hands. Satelites...

Very nice. My only problem is the sun, it looks very washed out, try messing with the saturation to remove that yellow thing around the flare :D

good work on this one. i like the overall feeling of the piece as well as all the little details you put into it. The planet in combination with the orange glow is one of the best in it's kind. So much depth to it and the glow is amazing. Only thing that disturbes me is the sun, it brings the piece down imo. If i cut the top of the piece off just underneeth the little planet underneeth the sun i get a much more balanced piece. Dunno if this makes sense to you but just wanted to give a cood constructive comment, as a piece of this quality deserves. Even though i don't like the sun i'm going to fav it for all that i mentioned before. Keep it up ;)

Fantastic.
Any chance I can have a higher quality copy? So I can post it on my website and claim it as my own? I mean, umm, to see the details?
Of course, if you shared it with me, you'd have to share it with everybody, it's always like that, like there was some animal park place, and I wanted to feed this tiny penguin chick, but the animal chick (actually a human, the one looking after the penguin) was all like, I'd love to let you, but if I did, everyone would want to.
But hey, it seems like a waste of all those details, like it LOTR when peter jackson made sure there was all the little intricate details on all the weapons and armor even though the camera wouldn't be able to see them.
The piece looks good in general, I'm jealous of your planets too, I should stop being jealous and just get some practice.
Amazing work. You should approach someone for a collab.

Hmm. I wonder if your planets would be lit the way they are with the sun in the position of the sky that it's in?

Seems to me you'd see more of a crescent effect, rather than a half-moon look. Your moon looks a little more along the lines of what I'd expect.

Sure, we all love to see terrain on the planets, but if the star is in one position of the sky, you have to justify where its light is going to fall on the planet. (Try looking at a ball and lighting it from different sides with a flashlight sometimes. Crude, but it can give you an idea.)

I also wonder if your star's light would change from white, to yellow, to red, that abruptly. Seems to me you could've used a smoother looking gradient effect there--but that's just me.

Overall, very nice looking. It's just some technical issues I see with it. :)

The lighting of the planets defines their positions. :)

Thanks for the technical critique, I don't agree with some of it but I appreciate that you took what I said seriously. :)

You're welcome.

Hey if someone asks for it straight up, and I see a problem, I'll tell them. ;)

These days, more people could do that, instead of just "oh wow"...I mean, once the speechless Disney-style awe and wonder wears off, someone's got to notice something they can critique, be it a feature they like, or something that bothers them. :shrug:

(I get it a lot with my fractals, so I know where you're coming from to an extent.)

PlasmaX7 Featured By Owner Sep 7, 2005
It's true, I prefer critique, but just because I ask for it doesn't mean there's actually anything wrong with the image. I may just be asking for you to point out which features you like.

I dislike it strongly when people decide to critisize an image without giving it proper thought. ;)

:icondeepchrome:
DeepChrome Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2005  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I know the feeling there. ;)

Um, it's possible that you could just say "What I mean is, point out what you liked best about it, etc."

Nothing wrong with not expecting peopel to read your mind. :D

The problem IMHO is, sometimes an artist doesn't see what is wrong, but the people viewing it do, and try to explain it to them. Then the artist ends up either in denial, or upset because they don't understand where the critiques are coming from.

:iconplasmax7:
PlasmaX7 Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2005
Probably should put that on some future images. =P

Another problem is, sometimes the art comes out exactly as the artist wants it, and the artist receives unwanted comments (e.g. "THAT SUN IS TOO YELLOW"). It's probably my fault for not realising this sooner. :)

Still, I appreciate all comments, because it actually means people are looking at my art. :)

Personally I'd rather see big suns, so don't expect to see me whinge about that. Hell, I wish Earth orbited a larger star or a binary-star system (from a safe distance) and had 2 HUGE moons. Or maybe orbited a ringed planet. I love the idea of big planetary or celestial bodies in the sky.

I just wonder at the realism factor. If you were going for somewhat stylized celestial art, I'd say you've accomplished it very nicely. :)

And yea, we could all have people look more closely at our art. I've been grateful to find a few willing to tell me about problems with my fractals that most people didn't even notice.

Brilliant. The colors are truly fantastic.
My only problem is the stars in front of the planet. I believe you said they were asteroids.. but if you wouldn't have told me, i wouldn't have guessed. i would just take them out next time, or make it easier to tell that they are asteroids.
