A Place To Call Home

12K Views was almost a year ago since I made my previous space art. :O Quite long ago ehhh...I almost forgot my own techniques ;)

I started this in vue. I wanted to create a good looking earthlike 3D procedural planet. It was quite time consuming, I spend more time on creating the planet itself than the whole scene and Im still not 100% satisfied with it ;). Later on I decided to make it more interesting, so I made the asteroids and opened it in PS and started painting...

Let me know what you think.

Made in Vue and PS. About 12 hours of work...

C&C are most welcome!

Amazing!  I have Vue Sci-Fi and my computer balks at having more than 6 objects on the screen at once. (I need more memory, I think; or just a better desktop... lol)
Anyway, such a wonderful composition!

Thanks man! I'm Really glad you love it!
Yea vue is very memory intensive. I remember when i used it on my old PC with 1.5 gb memory, it was a pain in the ass
Now I have 8 gb but 16 gb would a lot better.

question, how do you make it looks like 3D?
I don't think it was painted by tablet, because it looks 3d and landscapes are so detailed like google earth.
I tried similer thing but it is...[link] rubbish. Could you teach me the art of painting? :D Thank you.

It looks like 3D because it is 3D! :) The only thing painted here is the galaxy in the background. Only color corrections were made in photoshop.

wow, so it was nonsense question, haha. So, is the landscape on the planet preset of photoshop?
I want to paint my original landscape...

Nooo!...:D The planet has nothing to do with photosop :D It was done in Vue using procedural textures.
