Runecca 2 by shirosynth Runecca 2 by shirosynth
Ive wrestled with this piece for a while. Ive never truly been completely happy with it. Theres always been something "not right" about it. It was either the lighting, or the colors, or the nebula... something just didnt fit with it. And tonight I finally hit the right color and everything just fell into place.

Im finally glad to say that its done.

I know that this comment is a bit late on this work, but I have just came across it - Awesome work, what programs did you use to create this?
shirosynth Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2006  Professional Digital Artist
Bryce for the asteroids and photoshop for everything else.
SiathLinux Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2006  Hobbyist Digital Artist
The Gimp is pretty fairly capabable of 'photoshop' abilities (not that I am yet... but learning) - will have to look into Bryce... Thanx for answering...

holy fucking shitttzzzz


abuhhhh abbuhhhhh *tries to suck up drool*

:omfg: that has to be 1 of theeeeee most detailed space pictures i've ever seen.... Dude, i know i've seen your work, but how could i have missed this!?

:drool: how you made those textures is beyond me....

:+favlove: which program did you use to create those asteroids? they're amazing... i tried making some in bryce but it takes for ever... =/
shirosynth Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2003  Professional Digital Artist
actually i did use bryce to make them,
but probably not in the way you might think.

i rendered them seperately and then edited them in photoshop.

shirosynth Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2003  Professional Digital Artist
Heres what i did.

First turn off atmosphere, make it a neutral color like a grayish blue for hte background

then i set the sunlight to be overhead, or where there are no shadows cast.

then i take rocks with a texture i cant remember that was in the generator, then rendered sets of rocks.

then cut them out in photoshop, and placed them, and added my own lighting.
psamtik Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2003
ya, thats what i did with my Digital Destiny piece, but you have millions of pieces, it took me hours just to sort out a small amount that you see here [link]
psamtik Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2003
how did you manage to make a million pieces though? that would have taken weeks =/ i can't wait that long and asteroids are the one thing i've been meaning to take good use of....

Help on textures and multiplication would help me sooooooo bad
azarael Featured By Owner Sep 21, 2003
very cool, i like the ring and the nebula especially.
zamm Featured By Owner Sep 21, 2003
No more words. :+fav:
unknownwake Featured By Owner Sep 21, 2003
OMG, so awesome!!! This deserves another +fav. It looks completely realistic and don't seen any flaw in it. The sharpness and beautiful colours leave me in awe.
d1git Featured By Owner Sep 21, 2003  Hobbyist Digital Artist
jeez. thats insane man. +fav the asteroids rock
eunica Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2003   Photographer
This is great. Wondrous detail and I don't know what you're talking about, the colors are near perfect. The only thing I can say is that it gets a little cluttered in the foreground, but whatever. like I said, this is great.
Hookj5 Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2003
Amazing. So very realisitic. Extreme color. :clap:

hxero Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2003

swarfega Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2003  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah a tutorial would be a really good idea. Ive been trying out rings but nothing like this.
angelum Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2003  Hobbyist General Artist
The amount of details is amazing. A job well done.
mistar Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2003
will you make a tutorial for these incredible blow-away planetary ring effects ?
man tell me what program did you use and can you roughly describe how you made it ?
dinyctis Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2003
NOW we're talking!!

this is excellent work, very very nice. There is NOTHING that i dont like. the background, the planet, the belt, everything is kick ass. you have outdone yourself this time :) (Smile)
swarfega Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2003  Hobbyist Digital Artist
wow thats simply stunning, you dont need to do any more to it.Wish my space walls were as good as this.
holliday221 Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2003

AMAZING. Almost like a photo. Heck, its even better. +FAV
siebenzehn Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2003
the colors harmonize well. good changes
darkstar412 Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2003
What can I add to what's been noted already. Ditto the above. The detail in every element of the piece is utterly fantastic. How long have you been working on it? Must have been quite a while.

When I catch my breath, I'll say, "I'M impressed." Very, very impressed.
