Star Ocean by Aradon-Templar Star Ocean by Aradon-Templar
Whew, this one took a while. I started this in the summer with a concept I had in my head for a while. The inspiration for this piece came from the game series Star Ocean, but the piece has no actual reference to the series, it is merely word-play. The idea though is that bits of stars fell from the sky and litter the ground, glowing brightly at night.

This is done in Terragen 2, which I recently upgraded to (woohoo!) and postwork done in GIMP. The stars were produced in GIMP, and added after the render was complete; I felt that the background function in Terragen gave too much blur.

I will not even tell you the render times, just that I must learn to optimize my times, or I will never be able to do a piece like this again! Simply don't have the patience for it =)

Also, I should credit Greg Martin for his wonderful star tutorial, available here: [link]

Comments and critique greatly appreciated! Let me know!
