VASTNESS by DKF VASTNESS by DKF
Ah finally some inspiration and voila a new piece. =Nameless-Designer showed me a new piece of his and it fired me up so tnx for that man.

Fooled around with 3dsmax again, can't keep my hands of off those asteroids. Turned out good i think. Finding a name for this one was about the hardst thing i did in weeks :O , luckely i had *SamODJ and =Nameless-Designer to help me out with that. Few hours in photoshop for this one. Not including the planets (they were made some other day).

Credits for some used textures go to =resurgere

Let me know what you think ;)

Edit: I'd like to thank =Burning-Liquid for suggesting it for DD and ^Aeires for featuring it. TNX!!!

VASTNESS by *DKF is magnificent. The soft and subtle background is done to perfection giving these heavenly bodies a beautiful setting to occupy. ( Suggested by Burning-Liquid and Featured by Aeires )

i like it mate, but if i should put my finger on something, then it would be the balance. I think the number of elements that make up this piece kinda draws the focus away and for me creates a little uncertainty, but man, its nice :) :clap:

Tnx, yea it is a pretty big image and it has a lot of elements. But when you see it as a complete picture it all looks more connected. It's probably becouse of the size of my screen (24") and when i published it i didn't really thought about the size that most people have (17"-19")

mm, on second thought, it's definately grown on me. After viewing the piece in a smaller format, i see your point, and its all coming together. The picture is actually very well balanced and has a good flow of the different elements, but as you said, the large version kinda fools you at first. Anyways mate, dont listen to my peeps lol, its a damn nice piece of work you've put together.

Since the asteroids all look to be of the same relative size, and the fact that there is a tiny asteroid completly blurred in the first plane, gives the feeling that all the asteroids are tiny pebbles close to the camera (as a asteroid blurred like that would means it's actaully a tiny rock at afew inches away from the camera)

Good point. I'll keep that in mind for future pictures. The asteroids do differ in size but not much though. Tnx for the comment :thumbsup:

This is absolutely stunning; the soft colours in the background, the way the asteroids float in seemingly aimless patterns, the planets themselves...

This is too beautiful, too deep, too awesome for words. It's just so... big.

best space art ive seen all year, probobly longer, what really bugs me though is the blurred asteroid down the bottom, if you want my honest opinion it kind of ruins the image. Its so nicely composed, epic yet calm but once you scroll down the serenity is destroyed by that big blurry object.

but enough about that :P
Its still definently worth a :+fav: man, fantastic work!

Otherwise excellent, but imo the blur at the front doesn't fit.
In real life everything space-related is photographed from very far away, so nothing blurs due to focal settings. Great work.
