The Crossing by DKF The Crossing by DKF
Hi there,

After some time finally a new terraspace piece. A collab between and me
It took some time for me to finish this one but the base was exelent to work on. Great detail and a good surfacemap, all combined in terragen made this 6000x3000 pixel render a good piece and with the additions i made i think it looks even better. I want to thank =environaut for his patience once more. It took quite some time for me to finish this.

We are also making this one a print :P so for anyone that wants this on his/her wall just click this [link]

So now all head over to give =environaut a watch and please do leave a comment as well on his submission of this piece [link]

As always comments and favs are appreciated.

Now Im certain you like exploding things :lmao:
The perspective of the planets is pure mastery, so is the terrain in first plane - great details :clap:

Yeow, the nebula really sets the mood for the piece with the vivid purple and pink colours. The rockblast and the dust trails really add a nice touch. Amazing work. This is what inspires me to try more terraspace
As for critique, I think I'm repeating someone, but I would've liked to see a curve to the meteorite trail, a slight parabolic would do :). The little man also doesn't seem to be congruent with the rest of the pic.
Once again, amazing job

I hope you read this comment. Or maybe you won't, I don't give a shit. Either way, I feel for you. People have come from across the website to take a look at the blood, sweat, and tears that you put into this, there is a ton of hardwork in this and it really shows. What pisses me off is that the same people who came across Deviantart to look at it have the balls to criticise such fantastic work. Maybe they don't like it all, but that doesn't make it their place to say, "Hey, you really ruined it with the person in the corner," or , "Hey, good work but I don't like the terrain or the dust clouds from the impact." That is totally bull. I would like to see them make something this good. Sorry if I seem a bit rude and vulgar, but it just makes me mad when people do stuff like that, it totally ruins the thrill for the author of working on such a great piece of artwork.

If you want my personal opinion, I think the entire image is absolutely spectacular. The one part that is really amazing is where the dust fragments have touched down and made their own explosions, how did you do that??

Anyways, phenomenal artwork.

Thanks for reading,

The fragments are pure brushing, some time went into getting those right. Tnx for the comment, although i think that good constructive critisism can help improve art. Ofcourse you can't satisfy everyone but some feedback is welcome from time to time. tnx again ;)

very nice !!
Hellhuff Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2005
I definately like this piece.

The nebula and the detail of the terragen stand out to me overall.

The one thing I don't like about this is that the meteorite trail is straight. It would seem to me that it would be at least curved a bit. I dunno, it just seems funny to me.

Awesome job.

I love it, fantastic work awesome color contrast, the little person was neat too :) :+fav:

my gawd this is awesome!!!!

Terrain looks AMAZING! i LOVE the detail, i love how the lighting works on it. I wish though, that there was more of a light source in the sky, and maybe that the sky wasn't so empty. It would really compliment the busy landscape, if you had a busy space.

however, i do see why maybe you wanted an empty feeling in the sky, to promote kind of a lonely look to the piece, like the feeling that you're in the middle of nowhere, where an asteroid slams into a planet and theres really nothing you can do about it... kind of a lost and foriegn feeling. I like it.

I like the little man. :)
gen3 Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2005
WOW! I am impressed. I luv space art! Good job!
Shadowtm Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2005  Hobbyist Digital Artist
very nicely done :), the nebula stands outt eh most for me :D.
tigaer Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2005  Professional Digital Artist
that impact is niiiicely done...! the rest too... ooooonly... that one little person ruins it for me. lol i dont know. i hope one of the rocks that fly around there will hit that guy.
Novacron Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2005  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Looks great guys, I especially like the creativity on the titling, seems like you put as much work into that as you did on the peice hehe
DKF Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2005
tnx, most people don't really notice it but it is an important part of each piece you make. It's how you present it. Without border and title it wouldn't look that good at all. It finishes the piece so putting some effort in it isn't bad at all ;)
vissroid Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2005
very nice man!

love the peices of rock crashing into the ground around the main crash of the asteroid

and absolutely love that Neb in background...I find myself just sittin here staring at it
DKF Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2005

CrAzYmOnKeY Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2005
bravo! amazing work both of you.

TG stuff looks a treatm and the post work tops it off very nicely.
SamODJ Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2005  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Personally i dont care about lighting or whatever, fantastic parts to this piece. The nebulae works nicely, nice use of duplicating..and also has great depth. The small rocks coming of the impact are FANTASTIC...the thing that does bother me, however, is the meteor trail - jsut seems lacking compared to the rest of the piece.

Only other things i could suggest, would be to make it more dynamic...hmm maybe not sure.

Still, great work here;)
Eclipse-CJ3 Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2005
Awesome work, glad to see something new. Awesome impact.
But one thing bothers me, the lighting from the nebulae doesn't match with the landscape. =\ Anyway...

martango Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2005
Thats awsome guys, love the textureing on both the nebula/and the terragen, awsome work to the both of you +fav
DJonasse Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2005

beautiful piece..
420-ForsakenOne Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2005
I'm not overly fond of the foreground tbh. it's a very lovely backdrop, but the foreground just doesn't do it justice imho
alexsmith Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2005
Colour composition is a bit off, but it looks great otherwise.
cosmicspark Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2005  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I love the dust from the rock fragments hitting the ground! Great work!
RoyalBlade Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2005
left bottom corner person ruins it :( apart from that AMAZING

Bravo Gentlemen, superb!

Amazing mate, just amazing. Stunning detail.. The frame work and title are top notch, too.
Keep up the great work ^^
MJ00 Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2005  Student Digital Artist
nice work! the terragen-part is really well done. The Meteors and planets looks also great, I only don't really like the nebula, don't know why...
oh, and I don't like the border!
X2thaK Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2005
I dont like the comet/asteroid/whatever tail, it's way to long and to strong considering the asteroid/comet/whatever has already impacted the planet.

other then that, looks great.
DKF Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2005
well, this all happens in a plitsecond so maybe you are right and maybe not. anyways i just like the eyecandy and don't really care about realism ;P tnx for the comment. appreciated
gummbear Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2005
:O_o: That'S amazing! I like the little man (or is a woman?) walking on this... ummm, moon? planet? Asteroid? ... Yeah that!

I commented on environauts so I have to do the same here!
The nebula is really amazing! I'm loving the colors! The planets textures are really nice too... then to top it off the post work is really realistic and the detail on it is very nice!
