Northern Light by DKF Northern Light by DKF
Tried some different new things here. Used a cloud texture to make the planets better and also tried to put in a comet. Didn't put a lot of color in so it doesn't draw the attention away from the sun/star. well, have fun and as always comments and favs are appreciated.

The star looks like it is front of the planet, and very close. That will be an unpleasant sunday sunrise. :)

This is BLOODY FANTASTIC!!!!!! I think that this probably IS your best piece to date due to the extraordinary planet textures used and the whole composition of everything. I love the asteroid (although I kind of agree with psamtik that it wouldn't actually curve around in real life), I love the planet rings and I love the title.

One minor thing that's slightly distracting in this piece however is the blue brushing at the top although this is barely visible anyway. Overall it's brilliant (breath-taking in fact) and if there was a print available I'd buy it (well actually...I wouldn't seeing as the postage to England is about $70 for a large print - but...you know).

10/10 :!: :) :!: :) :!:

I really like this piece, the one thing that bugs me about it is the ring system - it doesn't seem to fit with the rest of the piece.

Still, nice work. :+fav:

Very nice textures. B/W comes of suprisingly well for a space scene. :) The only problem I can see is that the comet tail is a little to well-defined around the edges, and to be utterly banal comets don't leave trails of rock: just frozen ice vapour. :p
