SD - Gods Adagio by tigaer SD - Gods Adagio by tigaer
tigaer-design.com proudly presents: stellar dreams - gods adagio

this one kept me busy the last 3 weeks. again i tried to refine my technique. my technique consists of manipulation and texturing. not the usual way through extensive brushing what a lot of other artists do. i admire artists that master the brushing technique. i'm not good at this and so i develop my own way/technique. again i used a lof oy my sky photography to finish this one up. with heavy manipulation of course. all this results in a pretty bright colored space scenery. one said in a comment on one of my recent space arts that mine have a very unique look because of the colors. must agree somehow.

sounds like you know how an exploding star in hyperspace looks like lol well - it's experimental. all my space work is somehow experimental since i'm not really a space artist. :) glad you like buddy.

"define quality"

it doesnt look crisp, it doesnt look clean, it looks faded and blurred.

the only constructive tip i can give you is:

nice try but try to control the scene in your mind, don't overdo it.

even if there's a masterplan behind the piece that explains the look... - still a thanks, why not that comment instead the first.

hmmz.. i think it maybe just a tad too explosive tho, a notch down from this would have been better, i think.. but who am i to say that? lol great job as usual chris.

yeah, your space work looks really unique =) you made a very dynamic and powerful piece. yet I have some crits. I would really like some more variety in the starfield, all stars seem to be of the same strength and colour, and there is no black space, no spot where the eye can calm down, if you know what I mean. also the piece looks a little chaotic, because of the many textures you overlaid. yet I think you have a very interseting way of creating this nebulae effect, and it turns out quite good for this method. I personally prefer the brushed ones, but that's cool as well :nod:
