UPDATE: Fixed star upload problem. "PLEASE DOWNLOAD THE FULL VIEW!" dA's uploader is a bitch.
So for this image I wanted to try a couple things I was lacking in and haven't done in awhile. Usually my images are quite light-dominated and featured during the daytime. So without further ado...
This announces the 3rd piece of my Natural Beauty series: AND my contest entry to Eternal Reminiscence.
"Night sets and the bustling world of Eden and her lovely moons ignite in awe."
I noticed recently that I have not done any planets that consisted of cityscapes in a very long time. That said, this piece is just that. Spent a lot of time on interesting compositions and redid the the rings around the main planet numerous times till they came out just right.
Please no commercial use of my pieces. Use as Wallpapers are O.K. ^^
So after getting much helpful critique and looking over the image some more I went about reworking it, this was the outcome, I saw the new star trek movie and that actually helped a lot with revising the lighting a bit and adding more distinct lens flares haha.
So basically its a big alien ship firing onto a planet and making a huge shock wave that disintegrates most things in its path like poor hospital ships evacuating the planet bellow, it also erases the planets surface turning it into a desolate ball of rock. The idea is that the aliens go around and "save" planets from the civilisations living on them, they decide if the race is exploiting its resources and harming the planet by doing so then if they are they wipe the slate clean and let the planet start a new. Kind of a more violent version of The Day The Earth Stood Still.
This time its a destroyed moon from some lost system out there on the andromeda galaxy. The moon hited by a huge asteroid some moments ago is forced to crash against the mother planet, and everyone has no other choice to follow their final destination...space
This is a piece I created just for fun during my trip to Louisiana. My roommate had some experience with the freeware 3D software Blender and assisted me on my first steps. Creating planets and asteroids in Blender was so much easier than I thought.
I used a model by ~dmaland as a base for the space station. Thank you!
I've added a wallpaper pack which contains the following resolutions (press download to the right):
1280 x 800 | 1440 x 900 | 1680 x 1050 | 1920 x 1080 | 1920 x 1200
In my experience these are the most frequently requested resolutions, but if you need a different version feel free to comment right here.
"After the destruction of a large metheor a planet is bombarded by thousands of "small" fragments. The pretty far advanced inhabitants desperately try to deal with this problem. But even while the remainings of the asteroid approach slowly they are numerous and hard to destroy without creating more debrie."
I hope that made some sence Once again a contest piece. Terraspace, a big theme with even more freedom to create whatever you want. In this piece i created a few planets with terragen2 (yes all planets are terragen 2 in this one). Added some 3d elements and blended it all with some photoshop flavour. I made this one in 1920x1200 especially for those that have large monitors. it makes a good background
I'd love to take credit for the entire piece but the spaceships are not mine. I found those on [link] So credit for those go to their creators wich can be found in the startrek and star wars sections.
It was fun creating this piece. For the first time in a long long time i felt like i was doing something i didn't do before. I love tg2, it enables you to create stunning scenes. So everyone that hasn't tried it, YOU SHOULD CHECK IT OUT!!!! Well that's all from me. Tnx for watching, i hope you like it
This planets are not crushing, they are just hmm 'one double planet', first - main planet and second - huge moon with very powerful source of light behind them. I wanted to make the whole picture cold, I tried to make stars and meteors looks like snow, nebulas and space dust like ice or something I know it's rather physicaly impossible but who care
A Terinary system somewhere in the khazaghd' nudliar galaxy. The larger of the 3 stars has just gone nova and the other 2 will follow suit in a few moments. The colony of Terpuid has been abandoned. Pity its dense asteroid field around the planet made for a great mining place. The remaining constructs will be consumed by the thermonuclear gases wich are expanding from the stars.
My submission for the exotica contest
The asteroids and mining tent on the large asterois where done in Cinema4D
The rest in Photoshop
