INCL. WALLPAPER PACK

D³SCR!PTION

My last space art try lies a bit back and i felt i needed to try it again. I thought about a new pic quite some time... months to be accurate. I thought about what i could create. How the setup should be. What elements i should implement. Gods adagio [link] , my last space work, got some nice feedback and i tried to take out all suggestions what to make better. I found that the overall coloring was quite chaotic in gods adagio... though it's an important element of the pic because if offers so many color combinations that the eye seems to be busy for ever to get the whole spectrum and complexity lol. But it's too much really. i tried to change that with my new pic. i tried a more peaceful nebula. Still with strong colors that can catch the eye... but very balanced and not too chaotic. I also refined my skills in planet creation a bit more. All in all a training piece in space art for me. With a very pleasing result to me...

TECHN!CAL DETA!LS

Technically is not much to say. Everything was created with photoshop. For the nebula elements i used photography and manipulated it to get the desired look. Space works are always the hardest to work with for me. The psd files always get overnatural heavy and it's very hard to get a fluid workflow.

STATS

createded with // photoshop cs, canon 20d photography
creative process time // over a period of 4 weeks (ca. 28 hours)
total filesize // *.psd with a res. of 3000x4500 -> 457mb
total layers // about 110
inspired by // `hameed - `alyn - ~ sirgerg

The wallpaper pack contains 5 different wps in 1600x1200 (each has about 1mb). Plus the deviation picture. The reason for the large 1600x1200 res is easy... it's the most compatible resolution to easily downsize to 1280x960 / 1024x768 / 800x600. The wallpaper pack is almost 10mb large. I'm sorry for that... quality counts.

Enough of this... i wish happy viewing... :)

Now you start off all romantic like - "close your eyes, pick a star, let's travel there"------- just the words every woman wants to hear, then what do you do? You go into a complicated shpeel about technical stuff, MORE of the romantic would be nice. Like the work though, splendid use of colour, very impressive.

love the reds and blues, very exhilerating lighting effects too.
for some reason i dont think the small planet with the hoop around it fits in...it looks to detailed and real compared to the rest of the painting.
good work though, very alive yet peaceful

Your stars are far too uniform, all the same brightness, all the same distance apart. The redness of your clouds is far too saturated, as if all the colours have been reduced to primary red, yellow, and blue. The lighting on both planets is off direction - the big one only a touch... but the small one needs rotation. And the clouds don't seem to have any depth. There's no real focal point to it, and so a border would work wonders. What's with the trails on those comets from the planet? The large planet is a great piece of work, but the rest needs adjusting. More colours, more depth, more variation, less contrast, less cloud overlays, less loudness.

Hope that helps. :)
