Almost Alone

Author Comments

This is one of my largest pieces of art, at 2000px by 2000px.
It depicts a planet and its two moons, in the vast emptiness of an undiscovered solar system.
I have to say that I like the starfield I made. It's plain, but I like it.
The two moons are courtesy of Tony Haye's "Space Kit".



First thing I gotta say is I love the choice you made on the background. Gives it a sci-fi quality that painting a generic starfield wouldn't hold the same effect with. The shading of the planet especially gives it the depth of a large planet, much like the photos I've seen of Jupiter. Very good on your blending and shading throughout.

Favoriting this one. Inspirational, to say the least. :)

The joy of creating and the joy of inspiring others is what makes art worth it. :)

Ah, I really shouldn't have given up on this site for the past two years!
Reading these reviews and seeing that some people actually enjoy my art enough to contribute a few words towards them is more than enough to make me want to make more!
It's been... probably two years since I made my last spacescape, but now I really feel I need to get back on it...

No no.

Almost alone right?

The absence of stars replaced with the faint shroud of gas in the background (at least that's what I see) holds this art to its meaning.

Very nice.

I was hoping above all hope that this piece wouldn't suffer and become too boring or minimal from it. Visually, I don't believe it's the prettiest spacescape I've seen (an understatement), but I really do hope it conveys its theme as well as you say!
