Detritus by dinyctis Detritus by dinyctis
Old school baby!

I say that because this reminds me of older works of mine. This piece was originally done for the 2005 calendar, it is the month of June.

I dont have a lot to say other than i lightened up while doing this, even though the little voices kept telling me to make it realistic =P
But then...........why cant this be realistic? i dont see any physical flaws, other than the distances being blown out of proportion for the sake of eye-candy. Other than that, it's all good.

Thank you :)

in what program can you do this ?
this is mad cool
dinyctis Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2011
You can do this pretty much with photoshop. I used 3dmax for the debris because I already had them made from a previous project but you can make them in photoshop as well since they don't have a lot of detail.

excellent, beautiful contrasts in colour, superb planets, and generally good image set up. Reminds me of that red based planetary wallpaper you did a while back (had that on desktop for a bit too), good stuff as usual ;)

Very good color choice, the asteroids looks great, its a very "explosive" image.
Great work!
iMike Featured By Owner Oct 15, 2004
this is awesome. love the motion blur adds serious depth and realism.

good job, you know, for a lithuanian :P

I enjoy the sense of action in this piece. Very active and alive this piece is. One little thing I really ennjoy about it, is where there are dark shadows from lack of light, you can still see slight detail. Only negative I would say is too cluttered.
daikan Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2004
Very nice, though the quality is lacking a bit in the middle of the uppermost planet, the red-orange one.
genocide-54 Featured By Owner Oct 11, 2004
It does look like your older work which is sweet and like Duris said the lighting looks sweet. The colours also add some nice touches. Rock on man :boogie:

Nice work. I love the asteroids. Simple excellence.
admin-sever15 Featured By Owner Oct 10, 2004
I'm definitely diggin it, but I think the motion blur is a bit heavy on the close objects. Other than that, this is golden.

the asteroids are really cool!! :D

The thing to remember dude, is that if we only wanted realism we could get a telescope and spend hours staring into space! As it is you have produced a piece of art that is a visual treat. The added bonus is that it could very well be real - who is to say what celestial phenomenon lie outside our limited knowledge?!

Nice work! The colours are really interesting. The vivid contrast of the explosive flare with the cold dark blue of the surrounding space looks great, and the detail of the scattered rock is also worth a mention. The extra touches like the movement blur of the closer rocks demonstrate your commitment to your work!

Great lighting effects used too! Very theatrical, especially with the three planets grouped around the explosion!

mcismowski Featured By Owner Oct 9, 2004
Awesome! I like the motion blur on the closer rocks.

Dinyctis, once again you have shown your ability in space scenes.
This piece is very detailed and very impressive, on the overall.
I would like to give you my two cents, though:

1. The big star pretty much reminds me of Jupiter, and the name reminds me of the greek wine god, Dionisus.
2. The explosion, IMHO, is very eye disturbing. Something bothers me about it. Maybe because of the extreme lighting in the middle of a dark enviroment, such as space. It wouldn't matter a lot if the rest was well lit up, but I guess that that's the point - Showing the explosion by the asteroids.
3. Speaking of asteroids, it can be one of two:

a. You wanted to make them static and floating in space, which is pretty lousy accomplishment with the big boulders and a very good attepmt with the little one. Well, ok, not static, but at least traveling at slow velocities.
b. The other assumption, which seems to me like 95% right, by your attempt, is that you tried to make show in a 2d surface, as a picture, movement of the asteroids, which in that case, and i'm pretty sure that the case, you've done a marvolous job.
When objects move at a large speed, the eye captures it as smeered, because the eye is not fast enough to catch the whole detail. It has to do with the reflection of light, but without going into details, because of the vast speed, the object looks smeared, just like you made the moving asteroids. It was fast as light, we wouldn't be able to see it :P
Now this is quite brilliant. How would you convey to the viewers that the objects are indeed moving towards the big planet? You smear them! Their blurriness only adds to the feeling that they are near impact.

B it is :P

4. I really love how you used the colours for the impact. Green - hazardous rays from space :P Seriously, I love how you made scaling, from almost white, to green as it gets distant from the explosion.

Never the less, this picture is very detailed and very realistic. I like this one, and it reminds me of jupiter and a poem I once wrote. If you ever get the chance, listen to Jupiter by Cave-In while looking at this. Might stir some new emotions.

Very good job!

dinyctis Featured By Owner Oct 9, 2004
The funny thins is that............there is no explosion, just a sunrise :lmao:
Galeos Featured By Owner Oct 9, 2004
ROFL, well it seemed to me like an explosion more than a sunrise, mate. Especially with the asteroids moving and the scaling of the light :)

Eclipse-CJ3 Featured By Owner Oct 9, 2004
That's awesome, but sharpen the jpeg a couple times, it's really blurry.
dinyctis Featured By Owner Oct 9, 2004
It was sharp, but i toned it down for acceptable submission size. Think of the dial-up users! =P
