Similar Deviations
A rather quick made piece by my standards. Ordinary space scene with a boring name - sorry for that :p

Wallpapers in 16:9 and 16:10 wide screen resolutions without watermarks added for download.

If you like it and use it, please comment and/or fav.

Critique appreciated :)

Edit: dAs downsizing ruins a lot of the quality - download the wallpaper pack and it'll look better.

Update: Sorry for updating so soon after submitting, but I found a couple of major flaws in the first upload. Some lightning changes made to enhance the planets, and another planet added to balance the composition somewhat more.

New computer, new version of photoshop + bachelor thesis and lack of my own resources = a practice piece that's not very special.

I know I promissed you guys something extraordinary, but be patience. I'll just have to get into the grove again ;)

Fullview: 2000x2000
Original size: 4000x4000

(1:1 ratio whaat?)

Rushed this a bit in the end. Might take a look at it over the next week or so, to see if there's something I want to change about it.

stock from www.extremeinstability.com

update: Removed sunbeams, changed some lightning on one of the planets and dimmed the stars some.

UPDATE: Fixed some details that has been bothering me ever since I uploaded this one. I first had in mind doing quite a big overhaul, but I figured it be unfair to the piece, and just adjusted what really bugged me.

Layers: +90
Time: Sun/supernova 6 intense hours + 3 hours on the starfield + 3 hours on some of the explosion effects = 12 hours
Software: Photoshop CS2

Asteroids by hameed

Inspired by [link] - though our executions are very different.

First deviation in a couple of months, and first space piece in ages.

Please do tell me what you think - the amount of time put in should warrant at least a little comment.

Advance critique welcomed....

Cheers...

Edit: Slightly updated with the nebulas. Was in the original making, but decided to leave it out. Changed my mind.

A quite quick painting, no more than 4 hours.

Pre-made planet, a bunch of pre-made fractals (did them before my computer went nuts some weeks ago), some brushing, some smudging and some cloud stock.

This resolution is the original resolution, my computer can't handle any more.

I'm still quite satisfied with the result, It's probably the last deviation I'll submit until I've had my computer fixed.

Critique and comments are always welcomed, even more so than faves - though I don't mind them either ;-)

The colors weren't dramatic enough imo, so I changed around with levels and color settings. Also changed the star scape some, added more "big" stars and changed it around a bit. The dark clouds got a tune up, as well as the colors and shadow of the planet. I hope you like the changes.

I present to you the third piece of my gem series.

This was a though one. Red isn't a colour I feel very comfortable with. I actually started this before Sapphire waves - but just couldn't get around to finishing it. I feel somewhat content now, I fear I'll have an urge to change it around when I see it tomorrow though, heh.

All of the pieces of the series:

Shores of gold
Sapphire waves
Birth of a ruby
Calcentine Abyss

Enjoy.

A little in-between wallpaper for you. Got some other projects on the way, and a collaboration coming up.

Download for 1920x1200 resolution. I would advice downloading for viewing as well, as deviantarts compression makes a mess out of the starfield in this piece.

The original resolution is somewhere around +4000x+2000, so other resolutions can be arranged if you want to.

Comments and critique always welcomed, and gives me motivation to keep on creating :)

Edit: Sorry for the quick update, changed the texture on the gas giant and fixed some colour issues per *BlPh suggestion. Thanks mate.

I know the realism isn't 100%, but this is art :)

This piece was a practice in new techniques..

Among other things I've learned and used Apophysis to render the flames for the comet/asteroid. The render time was a b**th, well over 3 hours per flame. 5 flames used in total.

Anyway, please comment and give critique, the only way to learn and improve :)

update: some minor changes

I've got a couple of big project coming up, in the meantime I'll give you this crop of a scraped project that didn't turn out so well. I'll probably move this to scraps later as well - but it's a lil teaser of what's to come.

And NO, the light source is NOT that cluster of stars - but just outside of the picture :)

Update: Composition changed, enhanced starfield, changed the sharpness (a bit oversharpened before)

Also: Higher resolution for wallie: 1920x1080 download.
