Flammen by houseofsleep Flammen by houseofsleep
My inspiration was Wappenbund's song - Flammen. I am not really into describing things, especially not when it comes to describing them not in my native language.. I wanted to create tense atmosphere in the picture, to portray a dying world, consumed by a powerful, yet evaporating force. There aren't any particular details in the picture to attend to, it's the colors and the shapes that matter for me. I am not sure about the inner lightning of the planet; perhaps it should be sharper, but I like it calm and dejected.

I had help from [link] 's flame brushes

Comments and critiques are appreciated, just as always.

EDIT: Resized the planet to 75%, touched the lightning here and there and changed the shadowing slightly.

I allow the galaxy-club to submit this to their gallery.

Flammen.. I'm norwegian, so I know what it means - it means The flame. btw, really good work on this :P I love the 3D effect on the planet and the flame/light. But the texture on the planet looks a bit weird and too blurry >.>

This looks really cool, only critique-y thing i could say is that the flames in the bottom left corner are a bit... different, from the rest of the piece. Love it tho.

Thanks you for the comment. :) You're right.... there is some space left in the bottom left for the fractal to distinguish from the brushes. Guess it's a random issue. :)

If anything I'd set the opacity of the shadow to 90%, a tip I got awhile back and it really helps to give the texture of the planet the value it deserves. Other than that nice use of fractals though it gets a bit posterized on the inside edges of the atmosphere. Try developing more than just a planet, maybe an entire scene out of it or something

I might try to play with the shadows... but I am not really sure if it would work to involve some other "characters" to picture. The atmosphere is strained as hell, and I don't want to change that. :D But I will think and see if I can figure something out. ;) Thanks!
