Leaving by bloknayrb Leaving by bloknayrb
So named because I was leaving for college when I made it, and I finished it here. The internet filters here are a little ridiculous, so I won't be on as often as I'd like to be.
This is my first attempt at painting a galaxy in a long time... It's not the best galaxy ever, but I like it. Next time will be better I guess, ey?
Tell me what you think. Faves are welcome, of course. Hope you enjoy.

The planets are amazing and I like the details like the star cluster and galaxy off to the right. :)

I first make a texture out of random other textures, then I color it and make atmosphere, cloud, and shadow layers. Sounds simple I guess, but it takes a lot of practice.

There are plenty of tutorials on planets out there, you can search for them on google or even on this site. ;)

Well the green planet is fantastic, it along with its Moon look very nice. As for the galaxy, yeah they can be hard to do, maybe next time make the edges fade into the empty space a bit smoother as it kinda looks solid here.

It seems that the small planet on its own is half broken, I can see stars through where the dark side of the planet should be...Unless those are city lights?

The planets look really good and good job on the starfield ;). The only thing disturbing me is the galaxy. It looks too dense.
Well good job anyway !

No prob =).
Just.....let the galaxy look a little bit more transparent with a lil bit black dust in it =).

Yeah, I thought that too, but it wasn't working so well here, so I got rid of a lot of it. Next time maybe I'll focus on just a galaxy and try to get it right. Thanks so much for the input ;)

I like the galaxy. There's here that sadness you feel when you are leaving a loved place. I feel it is a very good piece of art ! 8-)

I like it. Good balance between the various elements in the piece. But why doesn't the light source in the middle seem to give off much light of its own? The planet in the background is only lit by something off to the right.

Because.
Seriously though, the galaxy in the background, bright as it may seem to be, isn't really a lightsource here.

Ok. It seems bright enough to give off light. Never mind then.

I like that the space is space - not totally filled with stars - it's more realistic to me than ones that seem overfilled..

Nice job on the planets :D
