Most of the time i sorta like my work. I'm never 100% happy. And basically, as an artist, you should never be 100% happy with what you do. Just to stay motivated and inspired. Now with this piece i'm almost 90% happy. And that's a lot.

I'm a sucker for backlit, sunset scenes so here we have another one. I would also say that this is pretty much a matte painting quality again. Haven't tried myself in that for a while. Now the plate i rendered myself with Vue really kicked a**, and i wanted to make it look somewhat photo real. The rendertime needed for the plate was something around 26hrs. Global Illumination and some good quality settings took some time there. I also got some nice photo reference material from =tendence and used some in my painting. Thanks for that. :nod:

Hope you like it as much as i do!

depends on the power of the suns. just because they're glowing... doesn't mean they're particularly strong and hot. :) a desert would be very boring :nod:

Wow. Just wow.

Your landscapes and spacescapes are simply awesome. I wish there was some way for you to send to my art show as I think your works would sell well.

Nice mood and colors mate. The result is quite powerful.
I like how you made the atmosphere so vibrant on the left hand side of the picture.

I really like the shear depth and thickness of the atmosphere, and the way the twin suns shine through it. It would be a spectacular place to visit.

I agree with you on the sentiment that artists are never happy with their work. I always try to improve some aspect of my work in some way with each and every thing I create. It's that desire to improve that keeps me going :)

Amazing work! It's been a pleasure watching you grow as an artist. I've watched you since your early Terragen days.
