ARMAGEDDON by DKF ARMAGEDDON by DKF
thought i'd do a piece with a lot of asteroids for a change. i had a terragen render left and altho it is not one of the best it suits the piece imo. i'm sorry for the big filesize but it is worth it and cropping it would mean loss of detail. all favs and comments appreciated as always ;)

edit: added forgotten reflection. tnx to coldflame for pointing it out.

the concept is not new, but the angle of the composition and even the sheer amount of volume of the falling meteors is astounding !!! the planet beyond remains as still and peaceful as the water in the first plane - giving it bizarre destructive balance ..hmm...Like it a lot :nod:

This is my favourite work of yours, really beatiful. I wanted to comment a few minor details:

The visible details on the continents texture: Cities and farms must be really huge to be visible up into space.

The atmosphere on the front moon(?) is very beautiful, I didn't first notice it at all. On earth standards it should be a bit thicker, but I guess it's fine for a smaller rock.

Reflections on the water look a bit weird... I would've faded and distorted them a bit more.

The comets and the impact effects are brilliantly made, I love them.

All in all, keep up the good job. :thumbsup:

Funny...I didn't know my nine yr. old son knew what the concept of ARMAGEDDON was/meant...till he bore his soul in front of a whole congregation the other day that they'd better prepare for it. I was kinda shocked...heehee.
ANyways, I Love your Pic.

What a common concept, but DAMN! This is so fantastic! The planet in the backgroud is just fabulous with its detail and the impact of the asteroids! Just wow! You really gave it the effort. Awesome job.

the only thing that stuck me as being weird was that on the texture map of the large planet, there must be a fu**iNg huge building O_O
it looks a tad strange to me.. but hey thats just nitpicking, overall this piece is absolutley awesome, as always :D
wonderfu detail and sense of scale :)

nice edit.. one question did you actually make that planet yourself from scratch? or did you use a texture/image from somehwere and add it to youyr planet?

just wonderin either way its fine i just wanna know ;)

i used an earth texture on this one and changed it with city textures and other ones. added quite some lights myself but half of them is not showing here couse i had to fit the planet it in. also had lot of work with the clouds to make them look good. and the atmosphere took quite some time as well so pretty much work went into this planet.

It looks like you used non other than real satellite imagery for the planet. Just that alone, I like. I see debris where there are obviously impact scenes happening, but no impression, cracks or disturbance in the tg. Also, with some of the debris and dust hanging in the trail of your meteorites having flat cutoff lines. I really should stop criticizing something I have no right to... anyway, excellent work as always.

Looks really awesome, the details and amazing as always. However, I do think the asteroid trails coulda used some work, they look a little solid.
Even so, amazing stuff, and its a change from ur normal work :D

nice one, very big, but you kept it on high detail. nice.

Crits:
The meteors could use a bit more detail and the brushing on the trails could be done a bit bettah.

And i think you missed something that could completely make this piece amazing... you could have add reflection of the meteors in the water. more realisme would run to you.

A bit more devastation would be nice, for ppl like me :P
I LIKE FIRE! I LIKE EXPLOSIONS<! I LIKE PPL ON FIRE FLY IN THE AIR!!! :devil:
