Didn't have much inspiration lately so it took me way to long to finish this imo. But well, now it is done i can say that i like it. Tried a different view then normal. Hope you like it. favs appreciated, good comments even more
however, i'm not sure the perspective is right on the planet rings - to me they look to be too thin round the sides of the planet compared to the front. This is just my opinion... the aork is truely superb!!
Great work, dude. You really nailed it. Most people are always forgetting that space is dark and make their scenes ridiculously bright, but I like how you handled this, especially the dust at the top of the image.
I like the impact to a degree; the dust-shockwave is great and well done, but maybe the impacting comet or whatever it is could fragment a little, itself? It looks a little too... intact to be impacting and throwing up debris and making a dust-shockwave.
The idea of dust coming out of the impact on a moon is simply and absolutely correct
The realization is great as usual, I would have changed the colours of the debris maybe...darker, less light and a bit of flame trail? Dunno...great work anyhow
I really like how you bring us really close to the impact. I also agree with Alyn, the smoke is incredibly nice, and the feeling of 3D is definitly there.
The nebula at the top is also well done, but the planet ring may appear a little uniform. But anyway, that's just really about picking on an already great image.
Take a break, you've deserved it.
