Exotika by DKF Exotika by DKF
Hey,

I know you people will say "hey that looks fermiliar" Yes it does!! It is the "same" piece i submitted for the exotika 2 contest BUT this time in its origional colors. Well almost in it's origional colors, i made a few adjustments here and there to make it look better. This piece is my favourite, not only becouse of the coloring but als becouse i flipped the canvas 90 degrees clockwise. Just looks better imo.

Here is the [link] to the exotika 2 contest piece.

Well let me know what your thoughts are, constructive critisism is encouraged. Hope you guys and girls like this version as much as i do ;)

The sense of depth and scale in Exotika by *DKF is just mindblowing! *DKF shows us how to create a masterpiece with the proper use of negative space, excellent composition and asteroids! ( Featured by gucken )

Much better. In the other version, that narrow bright line that bisects the sun does the same to the canvas, stopping, instead of leading, the eye.

:wow: This is intense! I just want to go in as far as I can--the sheer amount of detail in this piece is stunning. The asteroids, not only the ones in front of the sun but also the barely visible ones throughout, really balance out the piece a lot. I love the colors, too. Awesome piece, definitely deserving of a DD--thanks for sharing!! :D

Space art is usually cool by default, but this definitely stands out. Great work with the lighting, I really do feel like I could be floating there, hearing the utter silence.

I don't suppose you do comissions, and intend on doing them for a long while yet?
I have this project (an online website) that I'd like to do that would need this level of space-image skill, but until I get funds it's on hold.

I don't think there's really anything to criticize! xD This is an amazing piece, man. Truly. I love the depth and the sense of largeness (right word?) of it. C:
This would also be an amazing poster. xD IMO
