Finally some space art again. This time a collab with ~Hammerz

I must say that i really tested ~Hammerz patience to the limit. It took me about 8-9 weeks to make something and that was not good enough. So i made something new with a new render and that took me about 3 weeks. And this time i feel good about it. The terragen work is done by ~Hammerz The space stuff, photomanipulation and impact were done by me. I also tried a new way of making planetrings, a little experiment ;) Tell me what you think about those.

Go over to the page of hammerz and check his stuff 2. Would be nice to tell him what you think about the piece as well in his journal [link]
<--- link to his page.

Well... thats about it. Comments and favs are appreciated as always.

Yo dkf, heb je tijdje niet gesproken, maar wat was de resolutie dat je deze in had? zou hem zelf graag als print hebben haha, heb al lang nieuwe pc, misschien dat je de psd ofzo of fullsize image zou kunnen sturen?

Spacescape (background and the planets) is absolutely beautiful, TG part a little less (maybe it's just because I don't like terragens with people)...The purple nebula is very realistic, and the rigns turned out perfect :)
There's one problem though - there doesn't seem to be any atmosphere! It's ok for the snowboarder (he mgiht be wearing a super-modern spaceboard suit), but the trees?!?
Also, I think the impact could be better...

Hoooly crap, it's just, it's just, it's just... (*alright, let's cut the crap).

Man, I love it, the nebula, the planets, they all fit perfectly together resulting in this astonishing fine piece of art! It's so beautiful I could stare at it for hours!
I also like the guy on the snowboard which brings some kind of surrealism to this image.

Thumbs up, favorite for sure! :w00t: 'n keep up the Excellent (capital E that is) work!

Beootiful stuph. My "advanced critique" goes for the artificial looking nebula, otherwise it's looking quite realistic. Though I would hope there would be some more effects by the atmosphere visible... There you go :)

Great work guys! Love the planets and the rings, and that terrain is to die for.

However the colours of the nebula look great, but it looks to flat, just no depth.
Lighting is off through (sorry) form the shadows over the terrain, i think more of the planets should be in darkness and the impact should have a better shadow

Aside from that i still think it deserves a fav!
