Hi everyone, I'd like some feedback on one of my first original drawings.
I didn't want to challenge myself too much, so I decided to go with an easy space scene.
Here are my problems/questions:
Something's wrong with my lens flare, but I can't tell what exactly.
I used the smudge tool around the planet to create some kind of glow around it, but not steady to make it look just a little bit turbulent. Friends told me it looks strange, what do you say?
Should I make it all perfectly round and clean? I like that handdrawn look, but like that it can't compete with similar space pics. Most likely it can't compete eitherway, so why not keep it like that? What do you think?
Any other suggestions?
I'm aware that it is pretty simple, but it's my second try with a handdrawn picture.
I used GIMP (stop that eye rolling :P) and a Wacom Bamboo. Drew the planet and the background with brush tool and set brush dynamics to "color" with a lighter and darker color for both, to get that "painting-like" look.
And yes I'm a nooooob, so please don't overcharge me.
Thanks in advance!
