Freelancerish by bloknayrb Freelancerish by bloknayrb
So this will be way too late for that contest, but I still want to finish it. Added way more rocks.

Comment away!

EDIT: No longer a WIP because I like it enough to say it is done.

looking good so far, kinda reminds me of saturn, but with a billion more asteroids haha. Binary star system?
Reply
:iconbloknayrb:
bloknayrb Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yup, binary, though this is probably as done as this will ever get :P

I think the asteroids need some more detailing. You need at least a couple background stars and perhaps a dim gassy nebulae in the background like this-->[link] (The dusty/gas beneath the planet)
Reply
:iconbloknayrb:
bloknayrb Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Why do I need that? I think this stands quite well as a minimalist piece without the added detail. Even the planets themselves have very light textures.

arisechicken117 Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2010  Student Digital Artist
Perhaps, what about a ship zooming through your asteroid field?
Reply
:iconbloknayrb:
bloknayrb Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I had considered that, especially in light of the Freelancer game that inspired this piece, but decided against it in the end :P
I should probably rename this so people know that it is no longer a WIP.

They don't have textures? I was sure they have :o
Binary system and depth are great! I think some more colors could get use here, but not necessary :)
Reply
:iconbloknayrb:
bloknayrb Featured By Owner May 24, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
They originally didn't but the textures are there now ;)
I played around with other colors but kept returning to this one. I feel like this color scheme better conveys the feeling of desolation that I was going for.

R3V4N Featured By Owner May 24, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
True :) I was thinking about adding some blue somewhere, but that'd rape the composition :(
I just realised, that work is from January :P

:iconbloknayrb:
bloknayrb Featured By Owner May 24, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yup ;)
Actually, without the color balance layer, one of the stars is blue :P

I love the planets without textures
Reply
:iconbloknayrb:
bloknayrb Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah I think I did a good enough job with the lighting that not much is necessary there. The texture on both planets will be really minimal, and will be in the final version only if it actually looks better like that.

If ever there is a game that has inspired me in space art, it is Freelancer. It's probably Microsoft's greatest achievement. If you've never played it, and you're into games in general, I'd suggest you give it a few hours of your time. It's the kind of game that you can really play at any pace you want, with a staggering amount of detail and star systems to explore. For all that its years and years old, it's still one of the most graphically impressive games I've ever seen.(Sorry for the fanboy rant)
