It's up here [link] on the site,there's some other things based on my other work too. I've reduced my percentage of profit to make it cheaper for you too, the default percent for the site is quite high.
Hope you like it

First of all, sorry it took me so long to respond to your post! University has been crazy a bit, but I'm finally getting around to it!

Second, this is brilliant :D I think minimalism can be so creative and expressive--you definitely nailed that here. The colors are nicely balanced, and I like that there is this symmetry with all the roundness going on.

One thing, I think that if you were to stretch the meaning of minimalism a bit, there could be a bit of green in earth. Just to emphasize that it is Earth you're looking at from the moon--it's pretty clear here, but I think that extra detail could help. Although it may contradict the minimalism...anywho. That was kind of a fail critique. Moving right along!

I love the crinkly texture--how did you achieve that through digital media so well? It looks so natural!

Great piece, thanks for sharing!!

HI, cheers for the comment, I finished uni this year so I know it can get busy.
In an early versions of this I had white over earth to make it look like the clouds but it looked too busy to be a minimalist piece.

The texture is made by getting a scanned image of crinkled paper and putting it in a layer above your image in photoshop and setting the layer to multiply.
hope this helps.

Chris

I see what you mean--like I said, the minimalism is fantastic here, so adding detail could definitely detract from it!

Great technique, thanks for the tip!
