Oh, my lord, I /want/ this!!!! I /love/ the veiny planet!! It's simply amazing. I'm still trying to comprehend how you did it. One slight tiny gripe tho... There's not enough of that mind boggleingly lightless black of space so up close it looks slightly flat. Just slightly. I'm only offering a humble oppinion while I bow to your amazing skills. XD Srsly tho..mind blowing...

Yeah... you're right... hey, it was my first shot at space art, give me a break! I'll get it right... eventually...

...Or maybe for Tuesday... heh... weeeee'll see.

I followed a tutorial. (hides) [link]

Bow to HIS amazing skills, mine are nothing.

The end of the comic? No. (dies) That would be ignominious to say the least. The planet's simply been 'returned to dark' which'll be explained later.

There's a link in the news below it, it should let you view the larger version.

Yeah, I tried that and my browser wouldn't download or some stupid thing. >.<
Whew, it better not be the end. It just sort of seemed like a chapter ending or something. Anyway.

You're right, it is sort of a chapter end, except there's another couple pages. XD

So close.

Weird, my friend could open it. Must be your browser or ComicGenesis was being finicky. I guess I can put up the page and link to it on DeviantArt as well.

schee sticks.

so the veiny-ness of the foremost planet is officially my favorite texturytype section... the balance of the two planets in the light of the nebula is a little funky, but I'm not really complaining. since I can't really say anything about landscape-y non-person-type art at all... yeah. Glowy.

I liked that too but someone else doesn't like my planet textures so I guess I have to keep trying, heh...

I like the balance and the light, so HAH.

Not that I know anything either, I was just doing glowy.

What resolution? (pokes the download link) It's plenty big, it's just tall and not wide. My own resolution is 1440x900 so I tend to make things big enough for that size of wallpaper...

I did indeed paint it. :D (makes petition to save abused emoticons) And I was indeed very happy with it, and equally happy that it received a tiny bit more attention than I normally would with my crap. ^_^ I even got a few favs from random people. YAY.

Very nice, good start! Your planets could use some work, just check out some nasa textures ;)
Keep it up! Awesome nebula!

I was following a tutorial for planet creation, actually. My choice of texture might not have been the best (I hate using tutorial supplied resources, because then mine looks like it was done using that tutorial), but then, does anyone say all planets have to look alike?

I have already gone hunting for some new textures on sxc.hu, though... I knew they were subpar... see, my collection is mostly paper textures. XD But I have a few good rock textures now and I'll use them next time.

I dunno if I'll keep it up too much, I'm a people artist more than a space artist, but I do think I'll try more. The nebula was way fun.

Thanks for commenting! :D

Thanks. Nebula, that was the word I was missing for my keywords... snrk...

I looked at your gallery, wow, your planets are so much better than mine...

I'm the opposite, I'm better with that sort of stuff than with people and animals. :ninja:

Yeah, I guess I did have it in me or it wouldn't be here. I can't do animals, though. I just draw people. Some landscapy stuff. Mostly just crappy figures, though.

Thanks for the comment! :D
