Newgrounds Background Image Theme



This is actually pretty old, did this more than three years ago. Submitted it to Retrogade back then. I see a ton of things I could've done better, but I wanted to keep it all 'vanilla', so to speak. But anyway, here it is for the brand new art portal! Hope you like it!

That said, I'm working on a new, insanely detailed spacescape. Don't know when it'll be finished though. I keep putting it off and all that.

good but

you could have chosen some higher resolution textures for the planets, you also (next time) might want to smooth out the edges of your planets a little better.

anyways its still pretty nice just needs a few touch ups.

ps. these people below me crying over it being "Photomanipulation" i disagree on the basis of it being completely created from scratch. he has not gotten a previously made photo, placed a filter upon it and then posted it here. he has used photoshop, used an array of tools, effects, and techniques to create this.

Thanks Zuorix!

U used...

Photomanipulation to create this...

MeMB responds:

This is not photomanipulation. I did use stock photos to generate the textures for the planet.


Comepletely awesome, the most detailed picture i have ever seen.


This is a beautiful piece of art work, the colours are engaging and the detail is really fantastic. I am an aspiring artist myself, and seeing work this good really does drive me forward.


MeMB responds:

Thank you, I'm glad to hear this motivates you as an artist!


I like it but the image seems a little too colourful and eye catching. Like there are so many different colors and all of them are bright, it's hard to take the image in as a whole, especially when you view it up close. And the textures on the planets seem way to big. Or are they way to small? I don't know the terminology, but when I look at it up close it seems low res.

I still like it though.

MeMB responds:

Thanks for the review! Yeah it is pretty over-the-top colour-wise. And the textures on the planet are a big over-scaled, which is causing the low-res look you describe. Thanks for your helpful review!

This artist has not been scouted yet.
