Amazing artwork. I like the reflectiong of the dark side of the moon meaning there is even a bit of darkness in the most pure heart. Its amazing how you keep the texture of the surface of the moon really realistic.

This is one of the best realistic space art i have ever seen. Is seems so real.

The background is also a really outstanding color. Its not blue or purple like we are used to see. It makes it more original.

I want to apologize for not critiquing before i dint knew about this critique till today.

Well thats it for my critique. Its such a great work keep it up and keep improving yor skills.

This is a wonderful image, I really like the concept of adding the yin and yang to a planet. The way you added the little white dot of yin into the yang in a way of a dwarf planet was very creative and original. Although the usage of this symbol is extremely common in design, your space art adaptation gives it a whole new different perspective hardly seen before. Little details such as the asteroids or the white nebula covering the "dark" side are very subtle yet effective. Choosing a black and white palette was a good choice because otherwise the impact could have been less powerful. As a piece of photomanipulation, it is perfect, as a wallpaper, I would have personally made the planet smaller so it can be better appreciated through the desktop. Other than that, excellent job, this is truly beautiful.

Clever use of the other satellite for the white dot :)

This piece immediately reminds me to Iapetus, although I'm not sure if the grayscale is to blame here, but the dark areas somehow invokes shadow of another space object as opposed to something like what happened to Iapetus (being pelted with dirt)... Then again, I probably am saying too much. Good work, anyway. :)

This is awesome! I love the feel of the planet's surface, and how you got the yin-yang design to work while still keeping it semi-realistic with the textures and background.

Gotta admit. This is one of those rare "I wish I thought of that first" type of space scenes :shakefist: Eh, I probably wouldn't have done it anyway, like the million other ideas I have which I don't have time to even bother attempting. Good job :clap:

I like this one more than your previous Yin/Yang piece.  I think that keeping it B&W was a great choice, and I love that small white moon :)  Also, really *really* nice craters!
TobiasRoetsch's avatar
my previous yin/yang piece? Isn't it my first? :D

Thanks :)
Planetrix's avatar
