Wow it's been a while!
After some time playing around with different things i finally decided to work out another spacescape, the classic calm soothing piece. I was toying with the idea of something more dramatic like an explotion but i gotta admit im not that confident in my skills at the moment. Its been way too long since i made anything afterall.
Ok, the foreground image is composed of 5 different pictures. I must say i had a hell working out that transition, but i think it turned out ok. The lower part with the lake was originally in nature blue, wich was kinda a pain to work into the strong contrast of the sunset.
The big planet up left is my newest planet, Spectronica, hehe, i guess i was kinda tired figuring out that cheesy name
, so dont flame me too much lol. I was working on some different techniques regarding the texture wich worked out great. And compared to most of my previous planets, Spectronica has few clouds. I will be posting the planet soon as well as a wallpaperversion, after some more tuning i guess.
The starfield is pretty classic, though i wanted to keep the piece natural and not blog it with a big nebula or something bright as a flare.
Its good to be back my friends
Working size: 2000 x 4790 (after merging the planet)
Time: 5 hours(without the planet)
