The Naxia System by Mr-Frenzy The Naxia System by Mr-Frenzy
Here's something i've been working with for the last three days. The foreground pic is actually taken by me as well, lol, so no its not a stock This picture is yet another relaxing spacescape with the more quiet starsky. I really enjoyed making this one, taking good time finishing it up. The nice thing about it is that this piece is 100 % mine, feels good.

I hope you like it my friends

I wish I could find some planets stocks...if you know...;) let me know plz.

I see that one of the planets is wrong ubicated (the little one in the top right)...the refleflection goes to the right & its reflection is to the left....I hope you understand what I am trying to say...my english is confusing :crazy:
I don't know how many stars like the sun are in a galaxy but only stars like the sun can illuminate the planets like this...I suppose that those planets are iluminated by one star because if is otherwise then you should put more of them iluminated to the left too...like if two stars are in both sides.
I really like this piece is enchanting...I like it. :)

Hmm... there is a dynamic here that is quiet workable.

I do notice three technical flaws.

The upper right planet has a lighting vantage that is not consistant with the work as a whole. In regards to this the lighting structure of the photograph has the light coming from behind the left shoulder... a simple rotation of the planets would create a better image because the lighting cohesion would regain compositional soundness.

I also notice that the shadow layers on the planets are very riged and crisp along the edges. A remedy to this is to gaussian blur just a touch... the atmosphere of a planet would not allow for such a rigid planet edge. My last pondering thought is to the horizon of the picture... The transition needs more of the sky from the photo. perhaps selecting a close color and creating a gradient... then it would be easily diluted by using a 300 pixel soft round eraser with the opacity set between 20 -30.

I do see a starfield that needs some variance. It is very soft and there is a luminescent quality worth exploiting. Utilizing more erasure and cloning to build "cluster-like" groups with a heavy bit of variance would definately help the compositional side.

There is such an awesome potential. I truly like the overall feel. Thank you for sharing with us. ;)

To be honest, there's nothing here to make this a masterpiece. 90% of the canvas is just a starfield, one which truly has little variation in star size at all. There's some tiny little planets you could have easily made in a couple of minutes each, and then a pretty small focal planet. If the bottom is a photograph you took a while ago, never intending it to be part of this, then I must point out that this is a mostly empty piece with an ugly photograph fused onto the bottom.

There's just nothing going on here, at all. :(

That's a terrible attitude. Finding flaws in yours or someone else's work isn't setting standards too high, it's being smart. If you're going to refuse to set your standards above your current skills, they're not going anywhere, and you're forever doomed to mediocrity.

Art is more than just something pleasing to the eye. If it makes the artist happy, then so be it. It does no good to tell the artist what's wrong without trying to help them fix it. Someone did that to me once and it didn't help me at all. Artists shouldn't have to cater to their viewer's ideas of what their art should be. Whatever happened to it being enough to just do your best no matter what anyone else thinks? Telling someone that their art sucks is not going to make them better any faster.

The really bright trees in the background suggest light from behind the angle that this was taken ... which confused me a bit ...

the planet's hot as usual, really sexy that land and the clouds.

so you went for another calm one heh.
then I think you shouldn't have exaggerated pn those commets, you could just use one, and place it the closest to the horizon line as posible.
I also think darkening the original photo would be a good idea. Is the water in there brushed by you? or did you mess around with the contrast/brightness settings?
but the hardest thing to do here is to blend both scenes, you could have made some sort of low opacity nebulae, and then get a blue/dark hue for the landscape.

bah, why am I babbling, this space scene is gorgeus

i love the serenity in this, horizon blending up into space and stars and planets... very nicely executed... can learn quite a bit from you :) keep it up!

pretty cool. in my opinion, the trees stand out a bit too much and look as if the light source was coming from an angle opposing the light source in the sky. i still think its a good print, since i love spacescapes

I think that the lighting on the trees up front is too bright, like theres a sun shining on it or something, there are far too many shooting stars flying all over the place and all looking pretty much the same, the background starfield seems really bland, low opacity and low contrast which is then pitted against the far brighter stars up front, altogther the starfield looks really uniform.

Hmm... I think there is more to the picture then I can pick up on. I can't see all the detail, because I feel there is way too much for any human to comprehend.

I can truly understand the three days build-up time. Great work.

Hey dude...
Nice work there... I love it.
Only one thing bothers me on the picture...

Your main planet, and the left planet have a light source from the
upper right corner, and your planet on the right looks like
he has light source from lower left corner...
That doesn't mach up.

Just wanted to tell you that.

Beside that, picture is awesome! ;)

Very well done, though I have some constructive criticism for you on it:

When dealing with multiple planets/moons/material bodies in space paintings like this, you always want to make sure that everything is getting light from the same light source(s). The planet/moon in the upper right hand corner is receiving light from a star that is giving no light to the other two planets/moons. And the planet itself that the scene is resting on has a lightsource behind the observer. This would be the basis for three stars in the system, which would make (through the way they would be placed based on your shading) all the planets/moons quite bright and there would be no need for the shading of the planets/moons.

So, you're feeling that the light sources and angles of light for the planets/moons is a little weird is dead on. It's because the lighting schemes would not be possible the way they've been portrayed.

Forgive me if this sounds a little harsh, but the "just add water" (long story) space paintings now a days seem to have lots of problems like this, and it gets a little unnerving. I do applaud you for having the ability to do things like this, though. I for one don't have the skill to craft good space scenes yet (don't have the time to practice at it), but I know what I'm talking about ;).

If you would like some pointers and such on realistic lighting schemes and conceptualization, you're more than welcome to PM me or get in contact however you wish.


Cheers,
-Derycke
