damn, i can't think at all when my girlfriend is flapping her stupid mouth at the phone, so not much of a description here. fucking bitch.. just kidding.. but seriously.. nah, i love you rhea baby, if you ever read this. anyways, made in vue, background postwork in photoshop, and a few hours of a few days. i'm gonna go smoke a cigarette and watch a real sunrise.

love the background


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Good BUT

Excellent work with a well crafted scene the planet has a wide range of textures and craters give phenomenal realism the lighting is appropriate and the contrast with the shade of the test asteroids.

The only thing I would advise is that we work with is very intense gamma the gamma is what increases the number of particles if used properly can increase the realism of an image, but excessive use makes for thousands of particles throughout the image and these will be as mirrors for the light source
redirecting and damaging the lighting and textures as in your case.

But in general all is well hopefully has been helpful and have it always concerned when performing jobs such as these.

i need to do some research, i really don't know much about design, or art but somehow picture like these come with ease. it's funny cause i was acutally messing with fog & haze, along with clouds around the asteroids since creating dust sized asteroids would be impossible but vue kept crashing so it had to be done in photoshop. only thing that was really done in vue was the planet & asteroids. all else is added :) thanks!

Awesome. Love Space scenes.

Space always fascinates me.
Its vastness, emptiness, and yet so full of objects, tiny and enormous.
Good job, I really like it. Make more space themed art in the future.

I give a 9/10 only because I value natural artistic talent over computer generated images.
Computer just makes it simpler and allows for art beyond the capacity of a human hand and mind to produce, but Im sure it was still hard work. Still 9/10.

AnthonyRichardWalker responds:

yeah i feel u, i think of myself more as a designer with a little artistic talent. thnx for the review!

nice model indeed. the planets terrain is very good, however i think it is a little extreme. if it was my model i would turn down the influence your bump mapping the same if you are using a texture. and it looks like you are. the only other thing is that it is a little grainy. i am assuming you are using raytracing, so you may want to turn up the samples. other than that great job!

AnthonyRichardWalker responds:

yeah i didn't really notice that until u said something, might change it idk. but the grain is done for wallpaper purposes, same with the clouds, when you get a full view it was quite boring without :)
