Full view essential. (Please take a good long look for all the smaller details).
I am very happy with how this turned out, and i have been waiting a while to upload it, this is the second try i hope everyone likes it. I was playing with the planet textures in photoshop and came up with these after a few hours, then i went on to max for the planets and basic lighting, and finally back to photoshop for for the nebulae and stars etc.
This is the finished version of my piece entitled nebulae in progress [link] I am very pleased with how this turned out, though you may have to play with the brightness and contrast settings on your monitor to get the best results.
The image was completed over a period of 4 months it had more than 80 layers and the actual final resolution was 3000x4500 pixels.
Many of you have been waiting patiently for something new from me so here you have it.
This was a collab between myself and JohnWarren
John was kind enough to produce a nice terrain rendered in terragen while i basically created the heavens.
There was a lot of work that went into this, deffinately one of my best yet. After spending most of the time on the explosion trying to develop it more and more i got carried away from the rest. So i said screw it, its good enough.
I tried to get a nice blend between the landscape and the explosive sky, but i didn't try to take the viewers eyes away from the lower half.
I used resources from previous works, but also created brand new ones to get a different atmosphere, most of the time you can tell when the artist is using the same old crap over and over.
John will also be submitting this piece as hes the one with the prints account and i'm not, so free print is well worth it Please go check out his gallery, hes an awesome terragen artist, one of my best. So shower him with your love, if your not lazy.
