Arcturus by skurvy Arcturus by skurvy
This was the background in *zilla774 s collab with me, I tweaked it a little bit and added a big planet.

Planets rendered in 3ds max 5, everything else in photoshop.
80 layers in total (one of my biggest pieces ever) and 2 days full work.

For all those who seen the collab, can you see the girl on the planet? ;)

All comments and favs really appreciated as always :)

I've had you devwatched for a while, but I normally don't comment on your stuff cuz it's just so good and I have nothing constructive to say... So, I'm going through all of the backed up deviations I haven't looked at yet, and just wanted to let you know that this one is one of my favorites of yours. I think the combination of black, white, and that aqua color is particularly striking. Keep up the good work. :)

i dont think.

uhm i kinda got of the track to what i was about to say. oh, yeah.

I dont think that the angle on the light flare (the horisontal line) is right. I think it'd be horisontal only if the light that creates it touched the planet at the tangent where it's exactly vertical. Which would be a little bit up.

umm one thing though :) the bright light coming from behind the planet is very distracting... also shouldn't it fade more towards the end? curious... very lovely though. :+fav:

This project is very well defined, and so precise. The mood is amazing, and I like your extra definition of some of the distant light sources.

Your rating: 95% A 19/20 pts.

Keep up the good work!

This picture is so beautiful! The brightness in the center really draws your eye in, and I love the details on the nearest planet. There's a very appealing balance of bright points of light and softer edges. I would love to see what you could do with a nebula up close, I always love those illustrations of star nurseries! Great job...
