Sphere by Ov3RMinD Sphere by Ov3RMinD
Aww... finally finished it. I thought I'd need more traditional Space Art. Took really a long time for me to get it right. But now I'm pretty satiesfied with the result. And no, your eyes don't trick you, this definitely HAS a planet (in fact it has two, if you want to count the moon).

All kind of feedback appreciated. Hope you like it.

Edit:
- Reworked the color scheme. The old one made it look like a mess. Much of the depth got lost. Looks a lot more real now.
- Changed the spherical "bubble" around the galaxy-thing a little. This is actually a bit freelancer-inspired.
- Reworked the nebulae a bit.

Tell me what you think.

Wow it just blows my mind!
It's pretty cool and very different from most nebulas!
The colors on the planet are a bit weird, but it's still cool and I like the glow on it :)

This puts me in the mood to do a little nebula painting, myself. I quite like the touches of blue amid the warmth, in the lower left.

Hey, I'd love this as a print, in the new color scheme pictured in this deviation. The print shows a purple/pink color scheme. Can you update?

That's pretty amazing man. Great detail! Something is bothering me though, but I don't know what. Perhaps it's something in the composition. I just can't put my finger on it. I love the detail and realism though. The colours are quite magnificent, too. Keep up the good work :)

I think it's something with the composition. I have the same feeling about it but I don't know how I could fix it.

The color scheme change helped the most, I think. Indeed, more realistic, more interesting, more eye-catching.

Wow, the changes are impressive. The nebulae definitely look more realistic, and the planet's day/night side have better contrast between them.

Good work there. :D

I like it, but I dont like that ring around the galaxy core though, looks like its in a bubble. Do you use fractals by any chance

:iconov3rmind:
Ov3RMinD Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2008  Hobbyist Digital Artist
No ,I don't like fractals. Imho they look too artificial. I used only custom brushes here.

Looks fantastic here. I love the colors and so on.

I have some nitpicks though.

First up: The planet needs a sharper edge between its day side and night side. It's very smooth here, and if you look at space photos of Earth and other planets, it's generally a pretty sharp edge.

Second up: What's with the fuzzy glowing sphere's edge around the central galactic area? It throws off the realism pretty badly there, and also distracts the eye from the very gorgeous and elaborate scenery here.

First, yes, of course you're right. I wanted to change that anyways. Don't know why I forgot about that.
Second, I don't know if you played freelancer once. A lot of system there have this glow around the central sun. It's not realistic, yes, but I like it, lol.

This is so detailed and so beautiful, but it somehow lacks the sense of depth that I get with your other works. I think it's a problem with placement and composition.

I like the color scheme and the positioning of the various planetoids/bodies. The horizontal view of the space dust/debris is also a good choice; all told, it has a good balance of interesting things spread across the piece.

A bit too red for my desktop, but I like it alot.

Woahh.. thats fucking amazing... Props man great work. Excellent color choice and detail... That stream of dust with the blurry background really gives a lot of depth... very "DUSty" nice one! :D
